It's OK to land normal "unrestricted" on the carrier.




Restrictions above when over weight. NATOPS Manual

You can land on the carrier 'normally'. Between 33 and 34,000lbs, there are certain restrictions in place as follows:


Arrestments above 33,000 pounds are subject to the following restrictions:
(1) Glideslope - 3.5° Maximum (2) Recovery head wind (RHW) -
(a) 40 knots minimum - Half flaps allowed
(b) Less than 40 knots - Full flaps only
(3) Lateral weight asymmetry - 14,500 foot-pound maximum (external pylon stores, AIM-9 wing tips,
and wing fuel)
(4) No MOVLAS recovery

Be on top the jet

Practice at a safe alt (ex 5000ft) . Go dirty and trim for level flight on speed.

Now do some power changes to see how the jet is reacting.

I find that if I is late on my throttle, I might overcorrect both on plus and minus and flight path is now a nice yo yo

To monitor your progress get the program Tacview http://www.tacview.net/
Here you can monitor all and you will soon see where you need to focus

It was supposed to be a drag reduction to the gear that was getting updated. Wouldn’t cause an increase in power for landing.

I asked about it on Wednesday, and IvanK responded that the drag reduction did not make it into this update.
