I’ve never heard of the combat recovery being used.

The break is a level turn, you’re correct there, but it’s from 800’(which you actually have in your picture). You descend from 1200 (initial)...

Carrier aviation has been around for over 100 years.

Yes, you do it by the book seeing as the NATOPS was written in blood by aviators for aviators.

IRL you don't just add power, you add a little, pull it back a little, and try to find the new neutral power point. It's a constant battle to try to find it. This doesn't mean that you should be...

The ball goes from a 16’ sensitivity per cell vertically at the start down to 1’ vertically at touchdown. The smallest power changes make a large difference, and once the power is in there’s no...

I asked you what you were trying to say because none of it makes sense and literally all of it is incorrect.

You should probably go back and do your homework. Referencing videos done in DCS is not...

What? 15-18s is standard, 600’ is pattern altitude, never be low. You start your descent from 600 at the 180

I was referring to my previous post when asked if you extend farther if you’re flying it at 1500’ instead of 600’. You extend ~15s off the abeam before you reach the 180 at the field, however the 180...

Nope, you turn at the same point to end up with a 15-18s groove length, you just have to stuff the nose and not worry about AOA till short final or you will be too high. Like I said, it’s just...

Fly it the same as you do at the boat, 800/600 pattern with the same abeam distance. Only difference is you turn 15s past the abeam position in order to have the same groove length.

Because when the plane touches down the nose strut will compress from the impact initially to the main gear, then the nose, meaning the rear of the jet will extend higher, raising the hook off the...

Humidity is a large function as well. If relative humidity is low you won't get any. They are working on it last I heard.

2. PG is the only map with more than 2 VOR stations, and even then you generally have enough tacan coverage.

It’s a 5900’ runway, I wouldn’t expect it to be comfortable. Larger, faster, heavier aircraft need more runway to slow down. With higher performance aircraft like this that don’t have nearly as much...

This is the answer to the thread. You use anti skid to maximum extent ashore, common procedure is to trap if you’re anti-skid failed ashore as well. You’re not going to beat the machine braking, all...

It’s how it actually is, it’s called the wings level transition. With the reorientation of the lift vector vertically, you have a higher vertical component of lift. Only way to counter that and keep...

Seems that way but in reality it's an instrument pattern with visual lookout until you're in the groove, then you take over visually. Need to be on precise numbers, and .1DME or 50' high/low makes a...

3/4 mile isn't a thing in case I or II, that's just from the movies. It is just whatever it takes to get 15-18s, don't really do any math, just use experience and gouge.

As far as the F-16 stuff goes, not well versed in the systems of it, hud tapes look similar to how the E bracket woks in the Navy. Again, green is too slow / too high AOA, red is fast / too low aoa...
