Aircraft Component Repair Frequently Asked Questions
Has landing on an aircraft carrier become easier over the years?
usually things get easier as technology becomes greater. Has technology made landing on an aircraft carrier in the Navy easier at all?
Was it more difficult to land on a carrier during WW2?
The optical landing mirror has made landing much safer. The pilot can control his glide slope with more precision. The angle of attack indicator on the panel helps to be able to control the airspeed with more precision. I would say that landing on the boat During WWII was more difficult . The angled deck has proven to be one of the greatest innovations toward safety since WWII. If you do not trap, you are not faced with crashing into the pack of planes already parked in front of the landing area. Instant “black Ace” would be your moniker if you survived the crash and fire. The English get the credit for most of these safety innovations. Too bad about the Limeys dropping most of their Navy and Air Forces.

Is it true that Russian Navy has only one active aircraft carrier?
I heard that Russian only has one active aircraft carrier. The rest are either scrapped or out of action. Is that true?
Yes, only the Admiral Kuznetsov is in active service. There were 4 ships of the Kiev class, 3 of which were stricken and disposed of, and the fourth, Admiral Gorshkov, is being converted to STOBAR configuration for the Indian Navy.
Can a small jet be made to land in an aircraft carrier?
Can we ever modify a Lear Jet or a Hawker so that it can land on an aircraft carrier? Can it be done? What about the jet taking off from a carrier?
But why are you asking this? In the present day scenario, such questions raise mor questions… What are you upto man… Planning some kind of Pearl Harbour thingy…? Jokes aside, I guess it can be done
Can You Feel a Plane Landing on an Aircraft Carrier?
If you’re anywhere onboard an aircraft carrier, can you feel the impact of a plane landing on the flight deck? Is there anywhere on the ship, such as the lowest deck, where you can’t hear or feel a plane landing?
You can feel a slight thump on launch from the engine rooms but you really have to concentrate to feel the landings. In the deck immediately below the flight deck arresting gear, the noise on landing is terrifying even after hearing it many times. The metal rending scream as the cable is ripped out of the hydraulic system, the roaring of the engines at full power, the enormous thunder as the plane hits the deck! Wow, it has been 35 years since I heard it last and I can still feel it.
