  1. If there is one control for “throttle forward, brakes aft” then how does one stop the airplane to perform a pre-flight engine runup?

    • There was a Flying article about it almost exactly a year ago (Julie Boatman, April 5, 2021). She reported it has a switch or valve behind the throttle that pumps up hydraulic pressure to set the parking brake for powered up ground ops that require being stationary. I’m curious how it works though and just the thought of having to learn that way for ground ops instead of getting on the pedals would require focus to not revert to what I’m used to!
