Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel and to a frequently asked question, why do pilots sometimes taxi with only one engine?
Very often you can see smaller turboprop driven planes or jet airliners taxi to or from the gate with only one engine running. Why is that so? Primarily to safe fuel and the reduce the risk of loose debris being sucked up into the the engine.
But there is more to it than just turning off the engine or starting it later. Hydraulic, electrical and air-conditioning systems have different layouts and duties, meaning some engines create the necessary hydraulic pressure for the braking system for example or the power the nosewheel steering. So some system knowledge is required before turning off an engine during taxi.
Also, thermal stress is an issue. Many aeroplane manufacturers recommend that the engine needs to be running at least three minutes prior to applying take-off power to reduce thermal stress on the engine. Similar scenario when taxiing inbound with one engine. After applying reverse thurst, you need to let the engines cool down for three minutes at idle power before shutting it down entirely.

But see more why ONE ENGINE TAXI procedures have become a common practice among many airlines and pilots.

Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video!
Wishing you all the best!
