Engine exceeding 40% N1 during taxi

Alright my question remains the same. Should I or should I not exceed 40%N1 during taxi.

If you want me follow real life procedures, no.

Ok thanks 1010

Do you define sharp turns as anything over 90 degrees?

There are some turns which are like 180 example during back taxi.

If “GROUND” operations max is 40%…… and your on the “GROUND” then no, do not exceed 40%…

I’m sorry, I worded my post poorly. The numbers and all don’t directly mean much. The point is, I believe anyway, N1 is limited to the bare minimum needed to accelerate to taxi speed, because the thrust force is so hazardous - it can impale chipped tarmac into other aircraft, and damage ground equipment etc.

When near terminals, and on the apron, you should not be exceeding 10kts - in real life, there are vehicles, ground crew, aircraft in close proximity, and more hazards. In order to be safe, and reduce the chances of a collision or other safety concerns I would recommend staying at 10kts on the apron, and when pulling on the stand do not exceed 5kts. When on turns you should not exceed 10-15kts. On straightaways typically you don’t want to exceed 20kts. This varies upon aircraft. The numbers I just provided are applicable to widebodies and heavy aircraft. Exec, Regional, and Domestic aircraft tend to be conducting these maneuvers at even slower speeds.
