Very well put together post! Definitely will try. Cheers!
I loved the Cessna 172 part due to the fact that I fly the C172 IRL and that just made me laugh out loud. Great job with this. Will totally do it from now on. :)
I’ve always used 1 & 3 for taxiing in the MD-11F. I have never had any problems. Now the 757 on one engine is tough, it takes a bit to get it moving with two. I always taxi with the #2 in the 737 too. It does make a difference.
Absolutely, yes! And it is the most obvious. Sometimes they will start the #1 engine, but they will leave it in a feathered condition, which saves fuel as well. Though this can’t be done in IF.
Well the test was made at MTOW. To maintain a taxi speed, it required a N1 of 43% while you’re not supposed to exceed 40%… so even to accelerate you’d need to reach almost 50%. IRL they do shut down #2, but in IF, the DC10 and MD11 seem like they have way too much friction or not enough power…
As always thanks for bringing your real world knowledge to the forum. It’s great when pilots do this and educate the masses. Makes for some enjoyable reading and learning.
This will be really helpful in the future. I was completely unaware that there were procedures for this kind of thing. Thank you for this <3
I really appreciate people like you in this community contributing and making an effort in order to encourage added realism! I’ll definitely start using it from now on.
