Changing Pushback distance

Recommended Posts

Hi

When using the PMDG pushback it's not possible to change the pushback distance once it's selected up to it's correct position. Once I decided to change the distance and was unable to do so. In the NGX it's possible to edit the pushback distance after line selecting it. Is this a bug or how it's meant to be?

You seem to only get one chance to edit the distance. I typed in 25 metres and uploaded that, then I decided that 22 metres would be better and I was then unable to change it. On the NGX I can edit that figure.

I think its a matter of distance. It does not accept inputs smaller than a certain number (guessing 77 feet).

200 feet is the smallest entry IIRC.

 

Repeat after me: 777 is NOT the 737 - it's MUCH bigger.

 

I highly recommend GSX - it's worth it for the push back feature alone.

 

Best regards,

Robin.

Hello,

 

is it possible to set the distance, from which the aircraft starts turn while pushback?

Why cant we enter smaller value? Any information given about it?

I dont know. I'm guessing that if you turn the airplane directly from the finger position, it will probably strike another plane.

I dont think so.. Some airports length (between gate and yellow line) is lesser than the others.. Thats why i hit another plane in opposite gate in push back ops..

 

I think we could use lesser values.. All airports are not same..
