Exclamation The sierra hotel carrier break. Aggressive TOP GUN trap



My attempt at a sierra hotel carrier break. did a couple passes before I got this one, I think its actually easier than the case 1...or maybe because I practiced the case 1 it made this one easy, who knows.

for those that don't know The "Sierra Hotel" Break was a carrier break perfected by Mike "Nasty" Manazir, a former F-14 fighter pilot and Landing Signal Officer, designed to get aircraft down on the deck as soon as possible.


She's a beaut, very fast landing pattern, highly recommended. I added LSO view and pilot view into the video.

Time to learn to trap like a top gun





real video

Thats a real nice landing, makes really sense to practice that as well. I wondered why you havent had your lefft DDI set to HUD. The Velocity Vector and AOA Indicator in the HUD should have better been lined up in one hight with the meatball, thus you might have performed a perfect thrird wire trap .But I need to be able to do that as well before I make noise here
Now I need to train that as well

To be honest I didn't set the DDIs because I was just messing around practicing and just wanted to get the turns right before I got all technical throwing the FCS and HUD on there didn't even use the TACAN or anything. It just happened to come out decent so I figured what the hell upload it.

That's Hot. I need to be riding the crotch more or else I'm always under the glide,

my instincts always telling me to fly the wires or else it feels like I'm gonna overshoot.

Interesting video, though I think there's lots of room for improvement. You touched down / trapped with 236 knots? Uh..oh...
