View Full Version : Carrier Quals

11-04-2004, 11:16 AM
As each member of the Blacksheep gets their copy of Pacific Fighters, we've been spending some time getting use to flying around the carrier again - especialy with the Ubi flight model. Some adjusting in technique has been required to compensate for the way we flew carrier operations for 4 years in CFS2.

Once we get all our stuff in one sea bag, we will be starting CQ training sessions for any one, or any squadron who wants to learn how to fly actual USN carrier airspace operations in coordination with other pilots. I am a retired Navy flyer, and love teaching this to people serious about learning it. If you're interested, please read up on how we fly around the boat in our CQ/Formation Guide here:


We are interested in flying with other squadrons that may want to inter-act in Coops with us as a Carrier Airwing. You will need Teamspeak client version to coordinate with other pilots within the carriers airspace.


We'll give the IP and password when you want to fly with us.

There's no such thing as a Ubi flightmodel. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I've had decent success in trapping, so far. I've had a couple of splashes, a few bolters and one break up on deck.
I am eager to get in on this training. I look forward to learning how to do it the correct way when you Gents and/or Ladies open CQ to us. Thank you.

bss in cfs2 were masters at carrier traps. it wont take em long to figure out how to put these birds on the deck quick enough to fill the flight line with corsairs. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Things are comming along nicely. Newer members are starting to catch on, and seeing the method to the madness. Pattern diciplines are a whole new concept for people that are not actual pilots. Most find the parameters to be flown and separation to be maintained from other aircraft quite a challenge.

It is the most fun and challenging thing you'll do in Pacific Fighters without pulling the trigger.

I think that, if it's done right, it's much harder than pulling the trigger http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I look forward to flying with you Vidar, after I get back home.

Good work, Vidar. Distributing the link and hoping to be part of a group calling up inbound for carrier quals eventually. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
