Situation: French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle off the Kerguelen Islands (ICAO code: ACKG), F18-Hornet "Super Warrior".

    Launch procedure:
  • position yourself on one of the supported aircraft carriers where the crew is installed (here the R91 Charles de Gaulle)
  • to see the bridge personnel arrive, you have to put the LAUNCHBAR switch on EXTEND (down)
  • Watch the flight deck officer ("yellow dog") giving you taxi signals
  • roll in its direction following the signs (left - front - right)
  • when you are ready (in principle on a catapult, but not obligatory with Fs2020), it will give you a signal to stop and will position itself immediately for give you the starting signal
  • apply the brakes (not the parking brake) and check that the LAUNCHBAR switch is on EXTEND
  • wait for the person in charge of the catapult (on your left) to confirm the attachment
  • Maximum power (with afterburning), stick in the stomach, about 10 seconds later, the plane will be catapulted
  • after flying 500 m from the catapult, the crew will be operational again for a catapult.
