Continous Carrier Ops in the Hornet?

How do I hook up to the catapult, once I have landed?
I want to do carrier training, and keep going after I land…

I think you have to press U.

You have to press U when close to the cat shuttle and having the launch bar lowered. Controls for that are near the gear handle.

Taxi close to the catapult shuttle. Lower your launch bar. Press U to hook up. Apply half flaps and 14 degrees of trim. Gun the throttle. Profit.

(or you know, don’t drop the hook when you land :smiley: )
