Pushback

Recommended Posts

Hi,Not sure if this has been considered or mentioned, but i was thinking it would be good if the pushback function would push back the aircraft and turn it in the direction you need to taxi to get to the runway automatically. When you request taxi to the runway and then get the 'follow me' line, it 'knows' how to get to the runway. Could this be tapped into so that when you pushback, it then turns you in this direction. Added to this, it will push you back to the taxiway centerline.just a thought

So I slew most of the time to back out and most of the time it works fine but once in awhile the plane will go from 0 to 250kts in 1sec. with the engines on even though I have the engines off. I have been told F1 eliminates this problem so I will give this a try and hopefully it will work.
