Plane Taxiing

airplane taxi ride

Rolling", in relation to aircraft, refers simply to the movement of an aircraft on the ground when it neither takes off nor lands. sspan class="mw-headline" id="Propulsion">Antrieb[edit] Fly, with blades collapsing as you move. Rolling, also sometimes called "rolling", is the motion of an airplane on the floor by its own force, as opposed to dragging or pushing back, where the airplane is pulled by a tractor. Aeroplanes usually move on wheeled vehicles, but the concept also covers aeroplanes with skiers or swimmers (for water-based travel).

Rolling " is not used for accelerated travel along a take-off strip before take-off or delayed travel immediately after touchdown. Propulsion for propulsion of the plane comes from its propulsion units or thrusters. Reversing thrusts for resetting can be produced by reversing thrusts as on the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III or by reversing thrusts as on the Lockheed C-130 Hercules.

However, most aeroplanes are not capable of independent resetting and must be retracted either manually or with an aerotow tractor. Delos Aerospace developed and patent protected the electrical rolling in 2007 in the USA. Electrical taxiing will significantly lower airplane propellant consumption, which is expected to account for 27% of overall propellant consumption for a 90-minute ride where queuing will prolong air travel times.

Airplanes on the right have right of way when taxiing. Bigger jets have a milling rotor on the leftside of the dashboard, which functions as a guide rotor and makes it possible to turn the nose rotor hydraulics. In some cases the control is done exclusively by the brake pedal (e.g. all Van aircraft) or exclusively by the control surface (including all floatplanes).

Bell CH-135 Twin Huey is rolled in a way characteristic for skids of this size: The downward rotation of the rotors restricts the hovering of the chopper near parking lightweight planes.
