The alignment cross is also used to align the JHMCS.

Yes Tholozor I remember reading the alignment cross also uses it to align the JHMCS.

Above 4 degrees AoA you will see the 5&10 pitch mark. I see in the training videos it's the 10 degree mark that's used for reference when air refueling.

So is there a specific height that an FA-18 pilot should adjust the seat, if so what is it?

Aligning the two alignment crosses vertically works for me.

Using VR I get as close to the instruments as possible and adjust my height so I can just start to see the top front of the plane.

Well you sound like you’re too close and low probably. I put my head where the pilots head would normally be. Also in VR

The added closeness helps the clarity using VR. I manage to see the full HUD and ladder [now that I better understand the relationship between AoA and pitch ladder].
I'll raise my seat to align my eyes with the same height as the two alignment crosses and see how that feels.
Thanks.

VR zoom doesn't work for you? I prefer sitting further back and using zoom liberally.

Both levels of zoom in VR work fine for me, just being up close allows me to read most everything without having to zoom in.
