GA Aircraft Tug Model

Recommended Posts

I'm not seeing any sort of tug while receiving pushback in a GA aircraft, does the tug model only appear when requesting pushback in an Airliner?

Are you using FS2020?

If so, you should see that small little tug that's part of FS2020, which is used for GA planes.

Yes, I'm on FS 2020. I'm not seeing the default small tug when requesting/receiving pushback.

Try doing a pushback using the stock FS2020 system when using your GA plane.  Hit Shift P.

We're triggering the same tug system used in FS2020.

So if you don't see a tug when you call it directly via FS2020's system, then it's probably like a tug just isn't available at your parking spot.

I think this may be some sort of bug in the simulator itself, it seems like no matter which airport/parking area I spawn at there is never any tugs around me nor do I ever even have the option in the "Ground Services" ATC menu to request such services.

It's probably just a display option setting you're missing in FS2020 if you can't see any ground vehicles.

Turn your display sliders up.

I reinstalled FS 2020 and it fixed the issue, very weird... Pushback Express is now running smoothly. Thank you for all the help!

These posh pilots with there little pushback tugs! We either used an old farm tractor and a rope, or we all got out and shoved the thing by hand! 🤣
