    What will happen to an aircraft after a succesfull landing? (in a coop mission for example)

    Will the aircraft just remain where the pilot stopped it, will it disappear completely leaving the deck clear for the next guy, or by far the best option, after the pilot has come to a succesful halt, will some sort of automated procedure kick in that represents the ground crew shuffling all of the aircraft to the far end of the deck, and putting up the safety wires to protect them from landing aircraft? this indeed would be very cool and could make for some interesting landings for the last guy knowing that your entire squadron is sat on the other end of the deck praying that you dont screw up.

    Also will pilots be able to step out of their aircraft once shut down, rather than stupidly jettisoning their canopy twenty feet into the air then bravely diving teeth first into the deck, before takeing a running dive overboard (based on current pilot modelling on the ground)

    Your plane will be pushed over the side.

    You'll have to taxi out of the wires up to the bow and park it.
    Kinda like this:

    We just need to get these developer guys to realized WE NEED DIFFERENTIAL TOE BRAKING! For precission taxiing in a flight deck environment.

    Vidar,

    Currently you can hold the brake (B key) and throttle up while holding the rudder to one side and you plane will pivot on one wheel, as if you were holding an independant brake.

    Latico:
    Not precise enough for carrier deck ops M8. How do you slow the swing side without loosing the pivot point??? U can't with this braking system. Space is not a luxury. U have to be able to hold that pivot point and slow the swing side indiviually or the plane rolls out of position.

    Razor:
    Butch made that pass just fine. Our record in CFS2 was 12 aircraft on deck.
    If you look at Butches pass closely, you'll see he's in the arched approach just about to roll wings level for touchdown. The Blacksheep perform actual carrier ops patterns like real pro's.

    We have new members being trained for carrier ops in FB. The standing order is to perform a carrier brake over the field after each sortie. We'll be ready!
