No proper communication after carrier landing.


Recommended Posts

What easy comms do is just receiving and transmitting any comms disregarding the frequency set. It does not make automatic calls for proper comms with carrier ATC. It's on you depending on Case I/II/III. Have a read:

For a CASE II recovery, you will radio “see you at 10” when the aircraft is 10 nm from the carrier just as on a Case I recovery. Radio control is transferred from the approach controller to the tower controller. At this point, the pilot performs an overhead break and landing. No Case I holding stack is required.

 

 

Out from 10 miles I report in 10 miles out and I even pass by the starboard side of the ship at 800ft out at about a mile then break left and start my descending, keeping it within about 3 miles of the carrier... But all I get is radio options "Commencing"  Platform"... once I am about a mile or less to the ship on my final approach, there's no call the ball routine and LSO commands like I get with a Case I.

I get the same message "No communication.  🙁

I'm on 127.50 unless I am using the wrong radio channel or something. But why on Case I approaches I am fine, but case II it seems to not establish final radio commands?  I've been reading, looking at videos... Respectfully requesting:

What am I failing to do or missing?

Sometimes I get lost or stuck in my head when I hear a female voice tell me to "switch approach"  I can't find that in the book so far.

 

2. Well.. I tried it again, Case II. From 21 miles out I hear "Switch Approach. What's that?   Then 10 miles out I check in. Come in straight... no opportunity to call the ball after ILS and TACAN and needles are perfect.. Where's the LSO?  If I land I'll get "No communication no grade, I bolted through like Dhuntman was talking abut, circle around, Get a switch approach message again... I choose "Commencing anyway"... I land without any LSO directive or call the ball opportunity...and I get a grade.

Am I doing something wrong? Maybe if I create my own mission it will respond differently?

Approach: Shortly after leaving the marshal stack, you will be handed off to the Approach controller. Marshal will transmit: [SIDE NUMBER], switch approach.
You will acknowledge with [SIDE NUMBER].

 

btw: It might be bugged atm.

Thanks. I also downloaded and watched that Case III Radio coms video from Wagner.  This seemed to also help me with what I think was my main problem ,as I was not flying the correct holding pattern.   And keeping the correct range altitude and time assigned in a sense. I was doing it all wrong.  I was flying straight in.

Wagner's video seemed to break it all down in sequence and it all seems to make a lot more sense now.  Seems like maybe too, it wasn't explained like the video he put out compared to what I was reading.🐒

😬

I'll work on it.

Thanx!
