Plane in idle still moves on runway

Recommended Posts

I am having problems keeping my plane from starting down the runway even when my plane is in idle. it makes it difficult to contact my ATC before takeoff.  Any help would be appreciated.

Yep, that is what a parking brake is for. Most airliners will roll at idle thrust when not at or near max take off weight.

Yes I put all the available brakes on. Then I keep my finger on the throttle brake button but to no avail. It still starts moving down the runway which makes it difficult to contact my ATC.Any ideas?

 

There's no need to PM me. Your response may trigger a solution for you. I wasn't being flippant (for a change) when I said hand brake. The only other thing I can think of is that you're not actually at idle. Which aircraft?

 

 

Deathstar? :Thinking:  Why do I have a funny feeling about this thread?


What is the answer to life the universe and everything? An 'app'.
