    Norton logs a threat from this file on this morning 10/28 and removes .exe file. Are you sure about safety?

    Love the addon, can't seem to open the application without opening up the app separately from the Flight sim. Am I doing something wrong?

    It has never worked for me and 2 days ago I downloaded it again to see if it did and all it did was crash my sim every time I opened it but I didn't know this at the time so I uninstalled MFS and reinstalled and then Reset my whole pc because mfs kept crashing. Then today I got all of my addons and MFS worked properly. Then a friend reminded me to get Pushback helper and my sim started crashing again. As soon as I deleted Pushback Helper my sim worked fine please help me or fix the issue

    First of all pushback helper is an external standalone application. It is almost impossible for Pushback Helper to cause any problem in the simulator. Pushback Helper just uses SimConnect to get and set data. Just extract downloaded archieve into any folder and run the executable. If you need further help please contact me using my mail address in the readme file.
