Taxi speed can be effectively controlled by the use of power application
and the use of the variable pitch propellers in the ground fine range
with the PROP levers retarded to the FEATHER detent.
Brakes - Check.
If brakes have been overhauled, "burn in" the brakes by
applying near maximum braking (short of locking) for one or
two landings or high speed taxi runs. After this, check brakes
for any tendency to drag.
Flight instruments - Check for normal operation.
