How do you pushback from a difficult gate?

If you’re parked right near the terminal building, how do you get your plane facing the right direction while not going into the building? or spinning your airplane around awkwardly? What’s the realistic procedure? at KLGA for example

So I believe that they push back facing the terminal all the way to the taxiway

The tug would usually pull you backwards at an angle. Another way is forward pushing but Infinite Flight does not have the feature at the moment

If you’re confused, check out this video. It shows a 777 pushing back all the way to the taxiway. Skip to :40.

oh wow! that is cool

Another way they do it sometimes is a push pull. They push you back, facing away from the terminal, then the tug pulls you forward past a certain line that indicates a safe distance from terminal building to start your engines. Sadly, this isn’t possible to do in IF yet
