Hi, Not Shift+P+1 or 2........The correct sequence> Shift+P release THEN 1 or 2 .
See if that helps,

with some payware aircraft..don't know bout freeware, the assigned pushback keystroke does not work. It is easier to just re-assign this function to a key that is not being used.

Same problem as described here:
You probably don't have problems with the default aircraft, right ?
Use my "groundhandling" gauges :-)
Or: find and remove the faulty gauges.
Or: (with FSUIPC-registered), program the key sequence under a button.
Or: Try and assign another key to the Pushback function (under menu Options-Controls-Assignment), but you're lucky if that solves it (depends on your keyboard).

I noticed referring to default aircraft that Pushback turn(1&2keys) works correctly with small&medium general aviation and business aircraft but very often fails with heavy airlines planes. Being the turn to be initiated after a strait pushback equal to aircraft length I think there's a bug due to the longer time between turn command and turn execution with heavy planes.

No, not true.
Just try it a default 737 or 747 (and default panel)
- Press Shift-P (if that's your Pushback command)
- Wait 15 sec. and touch nothing !!
- press "1" .
- Now you can change views, switch a light or whatever, but after 10-20 sec the aircraft will turn (depending on the length).
The only important thing is that absolutely NO events (even internal in FS) are given between the "Shift-P" and "1"; after the "1", it doesn't matter what you do.
BUT, as said, any event between "Shift-P" and "1" will disturb this process; even a "jittering" (causing FS to see a non-idle throttle) throttle axis on your controller.

The secret I found was not to use the MS pushback feature at all but one of the add-on utilities like GroundHandling Guage instead. Works great, can set time of pushback and turning and also comes with voices between ground crew and pilot. Check in the library under "pushback".

Because I should know (being the creator :-) )
See reply-5 ..
