Feature Article: Parking
The number one region of aircraft accidents is getting into
a parking space. Some pilots seem to think it necessary to make
a little jog toward the parking space prior to turning. This could
save a couple of feet of push back at best but all too often results
in contact with a neighboring aircraft. Better to pick a point
in the parking area where the nose is to go and plan your turn
from the middle of the taxiway to that point. The nose wheel should
be straightened while the plane is completing the turn.
One of the most common errors of aircraft handling occurs when
positioning the plane at the tie- down. Draw an imaginary line
from the tie-down to where you want the nose to be on stopping.
DON'T weave toward the tie-down. This is the cause of numerous
accidents. Once you have your imaginary line or a point, make
a smooth/sharp turn and straighten the nose wheel before stopping.
A well aligned plane is easier to push back
