What's the best way to slow the taxiing rate on the Kin

Recommended Posts

If I hit F1 it finally stops accelerating. I tried turning the low idle down but that doesn't really work either. What is the best way to control the taxi speed with the default Kingair 350?Thanks,Noel

Here's a start:With brakes set per the checklist, make sure the power levers are set to GROUND FINE.Check that the condition levers are set to LOW IDLE.Now make sure the prop levers are pulled back (lower pitch) to just above the red and white striped (feathered) section.Once you have taxi clearence, release the parking brake. The airplane should not move. Advance the power and prop levers to maintain a little over 1000 RPM. As you continue to advance both sets of levers the airplane will gain speed. If too fast simply pull the levers back to maintain a safe taxi speed at just above 1000 RPM.Take a few minutes to play with the power/prop levers on the King Air. You can actually make the airplane back-up.Hope this helps,
