FSX Certified

Carrier Strike Force continues the excitement of aircraft carrier operations.

You'll take the seat on board new aircraft and fly from three new carriers. On board the Charles de Gaulle, the powerful catapult gets your mighty Rafale M airborne in just a few hundred feet. And during recovery, you'll want your tail hook to catch the steel cable to bring your muscular aircraft to a screeching halt. Fly the new F-35 JSF and the Harrier in vertical flight from the HMS Illustrious and USS Bonhomme Richard.

For this add-on you'll have all military new equipment:

  • USS Bonhomme Richard
  • French Charles de Gaulle
  • British HMS Illustrious
  • F-35C Lightning II Joint Strike FighterTM
  • AV-8B II Plus HarrierTM
  • Rafale M

Highlights of Carrier Strike Force

  • FSX - moving carrier - you'll takeoff and land from a moving surface
  • FSX - super-accurate launch and recovery using 3WireX technology
  • FSX - five great missions and six open ended mini training missions
  • FSX - maverick missle
  • Aircraft Carriers - USS Bonhomme Richard, HMS Illustrious, Charles de Gaulle

Carrier Strike Force incorporates the same new technology found in our bestselling Flight Deck 5 package. You'll operate from moving aircraft carriers with super accurate catapult launch and recovery system*. You'll experience the thrill of authentic deck operations with AI traffic on and above the carrier. You'll see why cable recovery on the short flight deck is both thrilling and nerve-wracking.

With five previous release of our world-reknown Flight Deck Series we have the know-how and experience to bring you the excitement of aircraft carrier-based flight.

* Moving carrier, catapult/recovery operations using 3WireX, missions and mini-missions available for FSX only;
Static carrier, simplified catapult/recovery operations and 200 pre-saved flghts for FS2004.


It's launch time on the Charles de Gaulle.

Taxi into position over the catapult. The launch team connects you. The steam is flowing and the catapult armed.

Shove the throttles forward. Release the brakes. The catapult slams you to the back of your seat.

Your aircraft leaps into the air.

vertical launch from the Bonhomme Richard


Returning to the Charles de Gaulle, you'll descend, fly past the carrier, turn a quick base and lower your flaps.

Quickly lose some speed and then turn final to line up with the deck.

Drop your gear and tailhook. Don't loose too much height. The LSO gives you the green. Hold steady. Over the edge hit the deck and give it full power.

The tailhook catches the cable . You're jolted to a screeching stop.

Of course, a vertical landing on the HMS Illustrious is a much simpler recovery.
