The most comprehensive guide for all your carrier launches and recoveries that could be fitted into the kneeboard. Includes the detailed overhead approach diagram for field landings.
12 January 2022
- New page added: the field landing pattern.
- Made all night kneeboards significantly darker.
A set of realistic charts for CASE I, II, III departures and recoveries. Based on the real-world Navy procedures that goes well beyond what you might find in NATOPS or CNATRA. A significant effort has been made to make everything applicable to the Supercarrier and the multiplayer environment. While tailored for the F/A-18, these charts could be used by the Tomcat and Goshawk drivers as well.
And for when you need to land ashore, the additional page, which depicts the overhead approach, will get you covered. I compiled it from multiple sources, so there could be discrepancies with whatever pattern you've used before.
As for the CASE kneeboards, most of the data comes from the excellent guide, created by Pieter Ras with the support and approval from the real-world Hornet pilots. His guide should be a mandatory read to anyone who's truly serious about the carrier ops:
