[UPDATE 1.3.1] Toolbar Pushback | AmbitiousPilots

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. Great for everyday use and VR!

Simply download and extract the zip into the community folder. Happy pushbacking!
