PUSHBACK, STARTUP & TAXI
This is quite a grey area for a lot of people... How do airplanes go backwards ?! Well although physically it is actually possible, we are not allowed to go backwards with airplanes, mainly because we cannot see what is behind. Also it would require a high power setting which will inject debris into the engines and cause damage to them, as well as causing harm to the surrounding of the aircraft.
.
A special truck will lock onto the aircraft's nose gear and get in contact with Us to arrange for the push once the clearance to do so is received.
.
Engines are started during that push and we monitor the start sequence to make sure nothing goes wrong and all engine parameters are normal.
.
Once engines are started and the aircraft is in a position to safely start taxiing under its own power, we instruct the pushback driver to disconnect the truck from the airplane and request the taxi clearance from the ground controller.
.
Now we taxi as instructed to the holding point of the runway in use for takeoff... .
