FO spanking me for taxi speed

Recommended Posts

..when I only taxi at 21 knots ground speed.It is totally acceptable to taxi at speeds below 30 knots, slowing down to 15 prior to making a turn.Is this hard coded into the program or can we change it somehow?Thanks,Dom

Hello Don,Yes, it's hardcoded (and airline/pilot specific). 30 knots is pretty fast though... don't you worry about your virtual tires getting a little hot if you have a long trip to the rwy? Hehehehe.In a future upgrade, I may code it so that the FO calls the taxi speed at a much lower speed if you're on a non-dry surface.Cheers,Bryan

Westjet(Canada) policy regarding taxi speed is 25 kts maximum on straight taxiways and 10 knots in the turns.
