F14 Carrier landing


Recommended Posts

I'm already practicing on Aerosoft's version in P3D. Using a program called VLSO it's extremely challenging. The throttle response time is crazy long you really have to anticipate. Also the TF30 engine of the A model is not very powerful, so you need quite a bit of thrust especially during turns. Not to mention how careful you need to be to avoid compressor stalls. The Tomcat's roll is extremely unstable at low speeds and high AoA. Unless you use tiny stick movements you will end up approaching like Cougar in Top Gun, and dropping like a stone. Luckily, there were spoilers on the wing that you could extend or retract with a thumbwheel on the stick. This helped maintaining the glideslope big time.
