How Do I Use The Parking Brake?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,I am trying to set the parking brake in the MD 11 in FS9.When I set the parking brake, the aircraft handle moves, but I don't see the FS9 text on the lower left that says parking brake.When I try to use the aircraft with FSPassengers it complains that the parking brake is not set so I can't start a flight.Any suggestion on what I can do so that FS9 parking brake can be enabled on the MD 11?Thanks much in advance,Teo

Teo,Do you have the hydraulic pressure needed to operate the parking brake? Handle may be down but if there is no pressure trapped parking brakes will not work. If engines are off and you have electrical power (APU or EXT), open the HYD overhead panel and turn on the AUX 1 pump.
