Push back issue

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone !

 

I have a problem regarding push back.

 

In FMC push back function when I set an angle of 90° to go back out of the gate and to be aligned with taxiway, turn radius is very large. (even with the minimum path distance of 76m)

 

Each time, I finish at the other side of the parking area or in the grass.... It looks like the steering gear can't rotate in its full angle range...

 

To illustrate my words, there in Dubaï:

There is widely enough space to maneuver and I finish in coconuts trees with FMC set to minimum distance of 76m and 90° left turn....

 

I report it in an other forum and I'm not the only one to have this issue.

 

It's same 777-200LR or 300ER since SP1.

 

Thanks for reading and sorry for my English.

 

Amazing 777 by the way !

This feature is built upon the FSX pushback function.  Unfortunately, the FSX function isn't very accurate, or good.  It is what it is...

Yes but before SP1 it worked fine...

 

Doubt it.  I don't recall anything in the pushback module being changed at all.

That's why I solely use GSX. Does the job properly.

This is actually a known issue within FSX due to the way it implements pushback. The FSX Pushback model (which we use with some modification) will not start a turn until the aircraft has pushed back one full body length for the selected aircraft. On the 777 as you can imagine this can be a problem especially with the 300ER. Unfortunately it is usually easier to use a shorter pushback with a 45 degree turn to avoid ending up in the grass. The FSX pushback crew is very inconsiderate in this respect.
