-To start a pushback operation ​just click on one of the three buttons ''​Push Left'',​ ''​Push Straight''​ or ''​Push Right''​ depending on the direction ​the aircraft ​should be pushed ​to. The program calculates for you the expected aircraft heading after the pushback below the buttons.+Before starting the pushback operation ​you can define ​the distance ​the aircraft ​is pushed ​back.
  
-:i: Note: If the aircraft should be pushed straight back from a gate first and then to left or right, just use the ''​Push Straight''​ button first till the aircraft is far away enough from the gate to turn it in one direction. Then stop the pushback ​and use the appropriate push button for the direction you want.+If you push to the left or right you can even define ​the turn angel and an additional straight distance after the turn has been completed.
  
-==== Stop Pushback ====+To start a pushback operation just click on one of the three buttons depending on the direction the aircraft should be pushed to. The program calculates for you the expected aircraft heading after the pushback below the buttons.
