Tis The Season for Questions

8 posts in this topic

I am using the PMDG 737ngx. In the FMC. I am attempting to set the Pushback distance. I want to set 60' Back and 90 degree noise right. It comes up with a total distance of say 314" which can't be changed... I am at gate A1 at Charlotte Douglas. The pushback begins and It will not stop. It pushes me clear thru the buildings, across the highway and keeps going. The stop button doesn't work and neither do the brakes..lol. Very frustrating when you get everything set up and you can't get to the taxiway...Not sure what the problem is. The FMC must be possessed by the Grinch that stole Christmas...

Thanks for any ideas,

Bob M.

There are certain physical impossibilities in life. Turning a 737 90 degrees in 60' would be one of them...

Using any additional programs? EZDok? GSX? etc?

LOL....I was trying to set it up so it wouldn't keep pushing me off the pavement..thru the fence and beyond. Using Chaseplane... and have gsx but not currently using it for this.

I usually (>95% of the time) use GSX for pushback, even if I use it for little else.  It will push you back to an apron lane or taxiway, or you can customize pushbacks for those difficult "parked in an alley" conditions.
