As with any motorized vehicle, wheel brakes are extremely important for the safety and control of an aircraft. When landing, they can help slow down the aircraft to safer speeds for stopping, as well as help pilots navigate the aerodrome with steering, taxiing, parking, and more. Most aircraft braking systems are operated through hydraulic pressure, and pilots can utilize the system with pedals, though some may feature separate hand levers as well. Sometimes, due to the size and weight of aircraft, powered braking systems can aid a pilot in slowing down the aircraft when the pedals are not enough. There are various types of aircraft brakes to help with slowing down and controlling the vehicle, which we will discuss below.
