Hello fellow virtual pilots,
Can someone tell me how to start flights at the gate/terminal, instead of at the end of the runway? There's just something about the taxi that makes it all the more real. For that matter, is there a simple way of adding jetbridges to my airport? Most downloads I've seen have required a secondary program like AFCAD, which I don't know how to use. Thanks!

It's easy just change the Starting position thing when you start the flight.....
Note: Most FS airports have very few gates and parking spots assuming you have a capable PC you can add loads of them by downloading Afcad files at afcad.projectai.com or at avsim.com (you don't need to have afcad I think you just add the files to FS9/Addon Scenery/ Scenery but it is handy tool to find out which airports you don't have one yet).....(if you don't have membership thing at avsim already it's a must have and free) to add jebridges just search jetbridges on the avsim search box thing and follow the whatever tutorial the file has......And there are many great airport sceneries in there too, many of them with a jetbridge.....
Still having problems?....Just ask there are lot of helpful people here in a.net//

Linked to this. I frequently start from the gate, but I can't turn the aircraft while I'm being pushed back. Is there any way to do this, or do I have to carry on pushing straight and then turning to taxi when I start moving forwards?

I have tried to get a pusback turn as well, I can't do that! There is a film in FS9 that they show you have to get startet, and their explaination is: SHIFT+P, then press 1 for a left pushback, 2 for a right pushback. Doesn't work for me though.
In the PMDG 744 though, you have a much more advanced pushback, then I could do it.
