Flying Case 1’s in the Tomcat is so much fun!
Carrier operations has always been a fascinating aspect of military aviation.
The brutal cat shots, and the controlled crash of the trap.
To be able to do this in VR is increadibly fun and almost overwhelming.
I managed to trap on my very first attempt. It was a one wire, but I was happy.
Since then I have been practising. I read a document on the ED forum, written by Victory205, a former F-14 pilot and one of the Heatblur SME’s. He provided some helpful tips. One tip was to dim the HUD and disregard it. This is good advice! I find that just eyballing the carrier and flying on the AoA indexer makes things easier. Not easy, but easier.
Been able to do some 3-wires now. Hearing Jesters comments is so rewarding! I’m really starting to like the guy.
He sometimes call bolters, when he shouldn’t. I don’t think he’s teasing me because he thinks I should’ve boltered. Seems more like a bug. Has anybody else noticed this?
