English term or phrase: spool down
Approaching an aircraft engine too early might be the last thing you ever do.
Wait until the anti-collision beacons are deactivated and the engines have spooled down, before approaching the aircraft.

Could spool down mean here simply "come to a halt" or "stop running"?
