Toolbar Pushback gives you full control over your pushback! Control the tug direction 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.

🥳 100,000th DOWNLOAD GIVEAWAY !
Toolbar Pushback has reached a wonderful milestone: one hundred thousand downloads! That’s an insane amount considering that this add-on was launched in May of this year.
In order to celebrate this, AmbitiousPilots teamed up with LatinVFR for a giveaway of 5 copies of the wonderful Airport Regional Environment X. AREX enhances your sim with much more realistic and detailed ground service vehicles, working perfectly together with Toolbar Pushback.
At this point we would like to say thank you to all of you using and celebrating Toolbar Pushback and to those who actively support this add-on by spreading the word, providing translations and giving feedback, and flightsim.to for continuously providing the downloads to this awesome community.

The giveaway is now over. Winners have been announced: https://twitter.com/AmbitiousPilots/status/1450036571420381188
📢 Interactive Pushback Audio is real!
Toolbar Pushback version 1.3.1 is available now and comes with interactive pushback comms! Also, thanks to the awesome community, the add-on is now localized. See the changelog and readme file for details.
When installing, please make sure 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.
