Yes...you can bale out, or take to your parachute, any time you like

and yes, you can take off and land on aircraft carriers

I recommend strongly getting Il2:Forgotten battles and ACE exapnasion pack, then merging PF with them. FB and AEP are available as a bundle

Parachute is Ctrl-E. This is one of the first keyboard commands you will learn http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Carriers are great - they even roll in the sea and your plane will roll off the deck if you have no chocks.

If your main interest is carriers then just get PF to begin with. FB is European theatres - East and West fronts etc.

... Which means that FB/AEP doesn't have any carriers ...

Why not take a look at these SimHQ reviews?
Pacific Fighters (http://development.simhq.com/_air3/air_109a.html)
Forgotten Battles (http://www.simhq.com/_air/air_071a.html) -- Does not include Ace Expansion Pack as part of review.

Go for PF first........ then as and when you can afford it you can add the FB AEP pack to add all the other maps and a couple of extra planes.......... good thing, they are getting cheaper all the time, but you will get carriers with operating hooks folding wings etc on the aircraft on PF you can land take off of carriers....

If as you seem to like flight sims this is something else, for one unlike fsim they spin and stall correctly, you will notice little touches like if you shut down the eng in flight and restart it, the plane will rotate the opposite direction to the engine and prop as the torque attempts to turn it..... I do hope you enjoy it, for me its the only flight sim i have flown since it came out.... IE the original version about 6 years? ago...... I have CFS etc and to be honest this surpasses them in my opinion 100 fold in realism and sense of flying............ the sunsets etc are awesome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
