SU-33 Carrier Landing Procedures

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I usually fly the full fidelity modules but considering that most of the FC3 modules have a professional flight model it allows me the pleasure of getting to know how they fly and fight. With that in mind, I started flying the SU-33 and while she has some quirks that I can't find any information about, the dearth of information regarding carrier landings makes an already challenging task even more difficult.


Having said all that, I started this thread in the hopes that those of you who fly the SU-33 regularly from the deck of the Kuznetzov would be kind enough to share the procedures that you have found to work consistently. Please include speeds and altitudes at the various stages of the approach. I am currently working on CASE I approaches...considering the instruments, I can't imagine a CASE III.


Thank you 🙂

Привет всем, я обычно летаю на модулях full fidelity, но, учитывая, что большинство модулей FC3 имеют профессиональные летные модели, это дает мне удовольствие узнать, как они летают и сражаются. Имея это в виду, я начал летать на СУ-33, и хотя у нее есть некоторые причуды, о которых я не могу найти никакой информации, нехватка информации о посадках авианосцев делает и без того сложную задачу еще более сложной.


Сказав все это, я начал эту ветку в надежде, что те из вас, кто регулярно летает на СУ-33 с палубы «Кузнецова», будут достаточно любезны и поделятся процедурами, которые, как вы обнаружили, работают последовательно. Укажите скорость и высоту на различных этапах захода на посадку. В настоящее время я работаю над подходами CASE I ... учитывая инструменты, я не могу представить CASE III.


Спасибо 🙂

This was discussed awhile ago ( kuznetsov-landing-pattern-or-not ).  It's an interesting read but the long and short of it is that there's nothing anyone has found written that describes it--this includes on the Russian side of the forum. The concensus was that it must be similar to the the "box" pattern used for runway landings (touch-and-go, etc) but the particulars for applying it to carrier landings are a bit murky.


The "box" for the Su-27 includes lowering the landing gear at a speed of less than 500 km/hr on the downwind leg. Flaps lowered before making the 4th turn onto base, at speed of 350km/hr and not banking more than 45°. If you're landing at an airport, you would cross the outer marker at a height of 200m and speed of 310-320 km/hr and the inner marker at 60m and 290-300km/hr.
