The FAA limits airport aprons (parking areas) to 1% maximum in any direction for aircraft approach categories C, D, and E (all jet airliners). What is the exact gradient in which aircraft of the following categories start rolling with all engines off and all brakes released in the absense of wind or seismic action? They are:
narrow-body jet airliners
mid-size wide-body airliners
