Thnx to BSS_Goat, and BSS_Absolute, the carrier pattern training mission is now available and ready for download from our site. There is a picture of the pattern super-imposed on the scenery with a senerio of a formation with three aircraft depicted in the carrier brake pattern down to the landing pattern .
All the ground reference markings (bonfires) are based on the lead aircraft's braking at the bow of the carrier to help trainees gauge their position correctly in the landing pattern.
Bonfires are also depicted on the runway to show the positions of 4 arresting wires(6 acutally exisited). Buildings are on each side of the runway to re-enforce line-up and the length of the carrier. Smoke-stacks are to the right to depict an island superstructure, and a bridge in just forward of the arresting area to re-enforce staying on glidepath.

Any questions about carrier ops in reguards to this mission and the Blacksheep Carrier/Formation Flight guide are welcome here, and in our Sheeps Pen forum where the mission is posted.

Excellent work BSS_Vidar, by BSS_Goat and BSS_Absolute. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'll give this a try asap. One question tho, can you set it up as a coop too so it can be tried by a Squad? ~S!~

oops forgot, another question. Can I have your permission to post the carrier pattern training mission zip file at our website for our guys to try out?

I won't do a thing till I hear from you. Thanks! ~S!~

It's set up as a Dogfight mission so a group can fly it on-line to practice formation flying, pattern work, and interval separation. If anyone crashes, they'll be able to re-fly. If someone takes out the bridge, it collapses and is no longer an obsticle. Planes can pass through the wreckage but it obstructs your view of the approach. Restarting the server will reset the bridge. We give a nickname-of-the-day for whom ever takes out the bridge. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Sure, you can pass it on to your M8's. The host is the only one that needs it for on-line play. But you can install it if you want to try it off-line.

I have tested this mission extensively, and I find it to be a real good training tool for refining approach techniques within the tight parameters required for the CV Case-1 recovery that is depicted here.

The P-51 is a breeze for pattern work. The P-47?, now thats more challenging and what I expect from the Corsair FM low-n-slow.

Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP's) in HL Friday Night June 4th at 10PM EST. Teamspeak is mandatory to participate. For those wishing to join us, I'll be up earlier to IM the IP and PW.

Any1 up 4 KP outside the DMZ in the LZ for some FCLP's? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

If more than 4 people show up tonight (which I think there will) Flights with a max of 4 pilots each will be established that have a Lead who knows carrier Ops. Stick to that lead and fly the best formation you can. We don't need people droning all over the patterns airspace. By all means please review the Carrier/Formation Ops guide.

Pay special attention to both the Landing Pattern and Spin Pattern diagrams. Print them out if you can and set them beside you during the FCLP session.

S!
