There is an Aircraft Carrier addon on Flightsim.com and it may also be here as well. It has 18 located around the world, with arresting cables, etc.. Id just do a search for it.

There are two excellent freeware arrestor and launch programs, Cliff, and plenty of freeware carriers.

It features: (1): A catapult gauge, enabling a catapult-launch takeoff. (2): An arrester gauge, enabling a cable trap landing. (3): A "meatball" HUD gauge, enabling accurate approaches and landings.

V2.0 of this package contains a large number of additions, like catapult/arrester zones and a revised HUD; for details, see the included file "Upgrade COP V1.1 to V2.0.txt".
