Accel Carrier Tutorial

Recommended Posts

Not bad but:The aircraft is at 10600 lbs fuel weight.Means a damaged aircraft on trap.Should have 4k for launch and two passes.Donut is 158 kts full flap.130 kts called for on final causes landing area and lens to disappear.Don't know wind over the deck but at 10kts ship needs 15kts for 25.The approach looks too flat.F18 needs to have the auto throttle option.A/S is ok. F18 uses AOA.Just for us FNG's.

Hi. IMO, most FSX approaches look unnaturally flat. Have you tried upping the zoom level to 1.0? Zoom 0.7 is the default in the virtual cockpit, but it is too far out / too flat for many.

I think the problem of flight deck lineup visibility is inherent in the sim.IMC night trap w 600lbs fuel same problem at 130kts. Paused sim in close but could not get the centerline lineup lights for reference. Settled for the ball and a sliver of flight deck lighting.25 kts WOD would make the vis problem worse.
