Non-stop rolling on taxi

Recommended Posts

So after the pushback and started the engines, but once I release the brakes the plane starts rolling, I can only stop it by holding the brakes or setting the parking breaks. What's the cause of this, the throttle is idle too.

Hi,

This is correct, at lower weights the aircraft produces enough power at idle to roll upon brake release. At higher wieghts a spool up will be required to get the aircraft moving.
