Hey guys you have to hit (SHIFT + P) to release the parking brake and this bird will turn on a dime!!!

That is of course after you obviously hit (SHIFT +T) for the tailbrake. Don't forget both brakes automatically reactivate when you go from view to view.
PAGES 85- 87 of the manual is where to go for this info it's quite explanitory.

HOPE THIS HELPS AND HAPPY HUNTING !!!

The Taxi and Takeoff training mission, page30 in the manual, makes no mention of having to use Shift+P to release the parking brakes so confusion is understandable.

True, though it is mentioned in pilot check list later. However with fairly slim documentation overall the 2 key charts provided were/would be top of my starting point.

It quickly became clear it was a `lite` sim anyway, so bypassed the confusing training sections.
