How to tow gliders?

sobaka Guest

I've had fs2004 over a year now and I guess it's time I finally asked someone. Is there a way to tow gliders up into the air from the runway? (I want to be flying the glider, not the tow plane). I don't see any key assignment mentioned for it. I can fly the gliders, both default and add-on by clicking slew mode, (Y) and then simply lifting it to altitude using F4 but that's not very realistic. It would be so much nicer if I could be towed up then release. If it's possible, I don't know about it. Can someone please clue me in. Thank you.

No it's not possible to use a tow plane as the sim now stands.
I believe that there is a pay add-on that would help but I'd have to look for it.
Right now someone else might remember it.

There's no way to tow the aircraft. You need to slew. Press Y then F4 then when you consider that altitude correct press Y again and your done.
