Aircraft Component Repair Frequently Asked Questions
When the shipyard finished building a aircraft carrier?
When the shipyard finished building a aircraft carrier. Why do they hang a broom up, what does it represent?
After a ship is launched it undergoes trials to see if she performs as expected. If a ship passes trials, it’s a tradition to hang a broom in the rigging when she returns to port. It’s not something exclusive to aircraft carriers, it’s an old tradition for any new ship.
what are the chances of being assigned to an aircraft carrier?
If you are not a pilot or a naval flight officer, but a surface warfare officer, what are the chances of getting assigned to an aircraft carrier?
EDIT: I am not in the navy. I was wondering because I am on the fence between the Air Force and the Navy.
An aircraft carrier is still a type of ship, so it still needs SWO to run it. Though, the CO tends to be a Naval Aviator.
How do I get a job as a pilot on an aircraft carrier?
After I graduate highschool, i wanted to join the airforce, and do college while I’m in there, and then go to active duty. Is the airforce the guys on aircraft carriers or is everyone on the aircraft carrier a part of the Navy in general?
Nope those guys are navy officers
you will need to go to college get a technical degree then commission into the navy
only officers fly and not all officers are pilots
How much space is needed to turn an aircraft carrier 180?
How much space is needed for a aircraft carrier to turn 180 degrees? If you were on a Kitty Hawk class or the JFK and need to turn a 180 degrees how much space would it take? Would it be the same if it were setting still rather underway?
A). The thing you are looking for is called “tactical diameter”.
B). The specific answer is classified.
C). If you’re not underway (ie, at anchor or moored to the pier), you’re not going anywhere. Speed does factor into it, like any other problem involving inertia. The faster you go, the more space you need. Good shipdrivers can actually make it zero, if they have no way on (ie aren’t moving forward or backwards at all), and if they have ideal environmentals.
What is the minimum people to move an aircraft carrier 100 feet?
I am debating with someone at work this question. If an aircraft carrier is in the middle of the ocean with the engines powered up, how many people would it take to move the boat forward 100 feet and to turn it just a tad? I am not concerend with people in the control tower or mechanics on board or cooks, etc…. Just to get it to move forward 100 feet and to turn the “wheel”. Thanks
Having spent years on several different aircraft carriers. Technically 2. One at the helm and one in the engine room. It would be hard, but it could be done if everything was already started and running at idle. Why only 100 feet? And such a small turn? Once it is going, it is not going to stop in 100 feet, and the turning radius on a carrier can be several miles at faster speeds and could be done in under a mile at 10 knots and bow & stern thrusters assisting the turn. But that would take a team of people.
