jerrycwo4Are you talking about the distance from the PB 'truck' to the Aircraft (adjustable) or after it has hooked up to the aircraft, the distance that the TB truck PUSHES to aircraft BACK over the aprion? ( also adjustable with distance and direction of the push back)jerry

Yes friends,i was talking about the distance from the PB 'truck' to the Aircraft.What i need is a starting point for example for the DF 737-400 w/o having to experiment (and crash!!!) too much.thanks a lotLuigi ;-)

Go the realism settings for the aircraft you're working with and turn "detect collisions" off...that will prevent the plane from "crashing" into the pb truck. Then you can experiment with setting the distance. The recommended distance for the default 737 is 1300.Sidney Schwartz [KPDX]Horizon Flights--flight plans and scenery for FS2002http://sidneyschwartz.homestead.com/index.html

jerrycwo4Still trying to figgure this out, myself. I only fly the Falcon 50 (3 engine) jet and always have a small 'gap' between the push back truck and the falcon. Does anyone know the correct distance to enter for the correct space for this aircraft?jerry
