FSX Certified

With the experience of four previous versions, the new Flight Deck 5 keeps the excitement in aircraft carrier operations.

The USS Gerald R. Ford is your new base where you'll perform launch and recovery missions. The powerful catapult gets you airborne in just a few hundred feet. And during recovery, you'll want your tail hook to catch the steel cable and bring your aircraft to a screeching halt.

Flight Deck 5 for FSX now even includes a moving carrier!- you'll takeoff and land from a moving surface using super-accurate launch and recovery 3WireX technology. There is also five great missions and 60+ mini training missions that add a maverick missile to FSX

Deck 5 incorporates brand new AI traffic on and above the carrier. You'll see why cable recovery on the short flight deck is both thrilling and nerve wracking. This is our fifth iteration of our world-renown Flight Deck series bringing you the excitement of aircraft carrier based flight.

From the flight deck of the new USS Gerald R Ford, you'll fly these 7 exciting aircraft:

  • F/A-18C Hornet
  • F/A-18E Super Hornet
  • E-2C Hawkeye
  • S-3B Viking
  • SH-60 Seahawk
  • C-2A Greyhound
  • EA-6B Prowler
  • Launch

    Hurry onto the deck. It's launch time and you're next in line.

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

    Set your brake. From his crouching position, the yellow jacketed shooter gives you thumbs up.

    It's game time.


    As you return to base, the USS Gerald R Ford is almost invisible. Drop down and you'll see your the carrier.

    Hear the LSO as he orders you to lose altitude. Fly past the carrier and do a 180. Lower those flaps and back off on the throttle.

    As you approach, you can feel your fingers tighten around the stick.

    Giggle it back and forth as you line up with the swaying 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.

    Exciting Carrier Missions

    Fly these FSX missions from the USS Gerald R Ford.

    These missions are top quality - just like our highly regarded Mission Series (Mission: Blackhawk and Mission: Combat Force) add-ons. They feature exciting action and narration.

    • Basic Carrier Training
    • Maverick Missile Practice
    • Sonobuoy Mission
    • Day of the Waterspouts
    • Crisis in the East
    • 60+ mini-training missions

    Heads Up Display

    You can also use the HUD display to guide you onto the deck.

    On the left you can see that the aircraft icon is above the "center" mark meaning that you need to lose altitude to stay on the glideslope.

    On the right, the aircraft if right on the mark and set for the trap. Good luck!

    Special Effects

    These special effects add to the realism of Flight Deck 5.

    Steam vents from the deck surface at the catapult and the engine afterburners blast hot to get the aircraft airborne.

    Launch and recovery: simplified operation of catapults and cables with steam and sound effects

    Aircraft: HUD, tail hook, folding wings, cowl flaps, afterburners, cargo door

    Aircraft carrier: navaids, AFD, AI traffic, wake effects

    The USS Gerald R Ford is positioned near these five locations:

  • Bay of Bengal
  • English Channel
  • South Pacific
  • Coastal San Diego
  • Persian Gulf
  • 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 flights are for FS2004.

    The real life USS Gerald R Ford is now in development and construction and is scheduled to enter service in 2015.
