Lear 60

Looking at the flight deck of the Lear 60, I see an emergency brake and a parking brake.  Anyone know the diff?

I am not sure about the Lear but in the ATR our parking brake was also an emergency brake. The emergency brake section worked was the first part of the pull on the lever. We were able to modulate the pressure to keep the tires from locking. If it was used too much with no hydraulic pumps running you would eventually run out of pressure and have no emergency braking left. Then if you wanted a complete lock of the tires then you would pull and place the handle in the detent. I believe this is similar to the Lear but in the Lear it is done with two separate handles.
