Land based runway practice with FLOLS


Recommended Posts

Just wondered if there would ever be a chance for ED to have a land based runway practice course you could set up.

 

 

In training before going to the carrier, I'm guessing they have a land based system with FLOLS to practice your patterns, hight and speed targets etc?

 

 

Just thought it would make a great addition.

I used to think this was a good idea until the second or third time I landed in the hanger bay.

 

 

What's the point of land practice when there's no penalty for failing ship practice? They use FCLP to make sure students are ready for the real thing without killing themselves or pranging an expensive aircraft or more expensive boat. They use small, light, cheap trainer aircraft to do it.

 

 

We can practice until the end of time with the 'real' aircraft on the boat. If FCLP was available I'd just run missions on the boat anyway, because there's no reason to simulate the simulation.

Virtually all my F4J landings at NAS Oceana were done using the ball. Before deployment on the carrier, a lot of practice was done at the auxilary airfield. It would be "realistic" to have the ability to practice at the field.

If they want it, let them have it. But I agree with you, I don't see the point at all.

Are any of the fields in the NTTR in real life set up for this? Or is it more limited to a few naval air stations?

 

I mostly agree with above - I don't see much point in unrealistically adding features to land bases when we can practice on the "real" boat without consequence.
