As I posted, it really doesn't matter. And absent concrete evidence one way or the other, is irrelevant. The fifth gen systems require actual people like Berke connected closely to the paradigm for any authority. In that regard. EVERYONE who knows agrees with Berke. All speculators, including us, do not yet understand, beyond some glimpses like the Red Flag results, and Persian Gulf F-4 intercepts etc.

F-15 pilots who have gone against them in exercises have universally reported that they felt like "Baby Seals." That's about all we know. And F-15's are the undefeated defending champions in actual combat. 'Nuf said.

My comment was more general than for just the ersatz Hornet pilot on the EAGLE forum (which I have not, nor will, read).

Nice link! It's really eye opening, especially when they talk about the FCS which directly translates to why the F-35 hasn't had an accident in all the flight hours it's flown.

IIRC this 'neofrightener' chap gave a link to the MOST BORING LONG WINDED explanation of carrier landing technique (must admit I stopped watching after about two seconds - dog almighty) so here is my pick for an explanation - don't worry that it is for FSX Flight Simulator - the basics still apply and it is a well explained and illustrated video (FCLP also):

Dude was a fake anyways.

All the aircraft carrier landing is a regular traffic pattern and landing except it's on a moving airfield. That's all he needed to say.

XC, did the pilot expound at all on what made the Cee better than the Turkey?



No. But i do know Its a great turner though. Best of all the variants with the big wings. Flight controls more responsive. You don't have to do the cross control stuff.

I fly a helo so we have the advantage of adjusting our slide slope and approach speed for a roll on, but the principle is exactly the same. The only major difference is that a Navy fixed wing guy has to hit on a specific spot for a moving target, but as long as the pilot follows the glide slope indicator they will be able to hit that spot.

Do you fly NAVY helos or civilian examples? IF ONLY carrier landings were this simple indeed: 'as long as' indeed
"... as long as the pilot follows the glide slope indicator they will be able to hit that spot...."

Anyway as pointed out today on the Canukian thread we should respect the thread and take this 'discussion' elsewhere....

I've done carrier landings. I botched my first one simply because I didn't take into account the height of the carrier and that it was moving. 2nd attempt shot for further ahead of the carrier and nailed it. Our unit does deck quals as part of our training to support DSCA.

And don't take this as me trying to take away things from Navy pilots. It's a difficult task, especially in rough seas. But it's not impossible and the principles are the same, with some adjustments in how you fly it. I draw parallels with how rotary wing pilots have to think differently from how they fly in the states when doing VFR vs flying in the desert with no visual reference points. You just need to take different things into account. It's more difficult, but not this monumental task. Thousands of others have trained to do it before you and have succeeded.

I see you do not read what I post - let us take this to another thread or start a new one -up to you- you started discussion.

I'm curious what are the parameters needed for the F-35 to begin automatic self recovery procedures.
