Toolbar Pushback gives you full control over your pushback! Use Pushback Pre-Planning for automated pushback procedures, or take control yourself and steer the tug with your rudder pedals, joystick, keyboard or mouse and steplessly adjust the tug speed to your liking. All natively from within Flight Simulator without the need for running any apps or alt tabbing out of the sim. Additionally, ground services can be called with a click of a button. Works with all types of aircraft.
- Download the latest release of "Toolbar Pushback"

🤝 I need your support !
With over 200,000 downloads Toolbar Pushback has become an indispensable tool for every serious Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 pilot.
I am AmbitiousPilots, passionate developer, student and creator of Toolbar Pushback. Next to my studies I'm working on my freeware projects. A lot of time goes into the development of Toolbar Pushback. I've been working hard to get Pushback Pre-Planning working in MSFS, and it's still freeware. Support me so I can keep maintaining and creating software you can't live without! Thank you.
Remember, freeware is free to use but not free to create.

- In order for the ground services to stay at the aircraft (when supported), Toolbar Pushback must be enabled

Due to changes in Microsoft Flight Simulator Sim Update 8, make sure to use the latest version of Toolbar Pushback as the previous versions (<= 1.3.1) are no longer compatible with this new release of Microsoft Flight Simulator.
🎧 Interactive Pushback Audio
In order for the interactive pushback comms to work please make sure that the folder name of the add-on in the community folder equals "ambitiouspilots-toolbar-pushback". Add-On managers may rename the folder, which would make it impossible for MSFS to find the required files.
