Carrier Landing Practice


Recommended Posts

I was just watching a Youtube vid of student pilots landing on a carrier, flying Goshawks. It would be pretty nice if DCS had a light, trainer aircraft to work on carrier landings. I looked at the L39 and the Aerojet, and neither have a hook.

Wolf, at some point, VNAO is going to release a T-45 mod with an EFM, custom cockpit, etc. It looks pretty freaking awesome, and afaik, its close-ish to ready. Personally, I'm speculating that it will be public within 3 months, but nothing has been released by the mod team.

Just download and try A-4C Skyhawk

Thanks! A friend of mine just told me the same thing. I have the A-4C but haven't flown it much, and didn't know it had a hook. I will try it out.

They have a donation page?  From what I've seen that mod is amazing; hate to fly off with all that work and not leave so much as a cup of coffee behind.  That feels too much like larceny.

 

I generally practice with the F/A-18, but that gets boring.  Always nice to have other aircraft to crash into the deck, spewing shredded metal and shattered parts about like shrapnel.  Heck, when I do the upwind flyby they all start running for cover... Didn't realize the deck crew AI was that advanced.

You would have to ask them. I don't speak for the mod team, I'm just an excited community member lol
