  1. @Cruizzzzer 1: You will accelerate to 350 when transferred to TWR. So you report the "see you" call to Approach, and he/she will say "update state, contact TWR" From this point it is ZIP LIP again and you then descend to 800ft and accelerate to 350kts. although you might already be at 800ft all depending on where you get visual... if not visual at 10 you are allowed to go to 800ft directly... There is no requirement to go burner, although that doesn't mean you aren't allowed to use burner to speed up... If you are not exactly at 350kts at the initial... this wont be a big issue. 2: Can
  2. It already reads CHKLIST and I personally would leave it like that,, That is how it was recommended in the era of the type of aircraft. I wouldnt want to outsmart the system... You can ask yourself how will I know the actual flap position or ask yourself.. Where am I going to read the checklist from on downwind? On modern carrier aircraft carriers that allow PLM all flight controls incl high lift devices as flaps/flapperons are in continuous movement... no pilot action required.. So I would say dont try to be smarter then the system, although some guys surely have good reason
  3. @Minsky It is up to you.. The following display setups are specifically for the F/A-18C Hornet. These are the display settings taught to pilots in the FRS (initial F/A-18 training squadron) but they are not standard operating procedure. Therefore, use them as guidance to improve SA, but freedom is given to deviate as required. In marshal: (any case) Left DDI: HUD Right DDI: Radar (For SA) MPCD: HSI Just prior to leaving marshal until touchdown: Left DDI
  4. @MARLAN_ What do you mean by Hail R DDI configuration? DDI configuration is not specifically mentioned in the HAIL-R checks other then I for Instruments.
  5. First of all my apologies for going so hard into @Jagohu's topic, But I was clearly WRONG in this case. @Wags @NineLine @BIGNEWY After some extensive research it indeed appears that the "Altimeter" is not part of the reply by departure.. Correct phraseology would be 306 - "306, Airborne" Departure - "306, Departure, Radar Contact" I also will make sure this will get updated in my manuals in future revisions... well done on all the latest updates... Huge step forward in carrier realism... Hopefully one day Cyclic Ops would be implemented too as that is what carrier ops
  6. There are no comms IRL. That’s why the twr comms have been withdrawn in 2.7
  7. Hi guys, for who fancies using the new feature available on the LSO Platform. I thought I share the meaning of the lights. During cyclic ops... A ball call is NOT made and Paddles keeps the talking to the absolute minimum. However he/she can communicate with the pilot by the use of light signals. A steady (3 second) flash of the CUT lights is the LSO acknowledging control of the aircraft on final approach. The LSO acknowledging that the pilot has meatball acquisition, line-up reference and angle of attack. so in short. The pilot doesn’t make a ball cal
  8. @Bbow Sorry for taking so long in replying. The simple reason was that I had a good idea but wanted to check with some of the real deal. As you can imagine it would be hugely complicated to adjust every jet for every config, weight and height equally then your ladder would only work if you fly airline style and stick to a certain climb profile, flight plan and descent profile. Making the whole idea of the ladder fall apart. So to answer you question it is based on; typical fuel flows for most configs and weights is around 24 pph a side at Max E. That’s equal to 12 every
  9. It’s as simple as, when you see the ball you call the ball. You don’t have to be wings level and definitely don’t call it twice.
  10. @HungryCoyote Hey man there is only one video you should watch... There is no such thing as keeping the ball in the center.. EVEN IF IT LOOKS COOL,,, it definitely IS NOT. \ Hope you will learn a thing or 2 from my video; Let me know what you think
  11. Well done boss, I enjoyed working with you, and am sure we will cross paths in the future again. excellent job
  12. Hey, Norman hope you’re well, in answer to your questions, it doesn’t. I absolutely agree that night as see looks horrific at times. The arc is more a way to penetrate clouds then for anything else. You would have gained enough altitude by the time you reach 7dme to keep it all safe. hope that helps.
