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 drivers as well.
Most of the data in the charts 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:
