Wow - very interesting to see a trap from a perspective most of us will never get to see!

Excellent!!Very good! you can hear the sound of the engines right before touchdown, that goes up, just in case that the pilot misses the approach.Right?

That's a superb film clip, there is some real skill involved in making it look that easy! Visibility from the S-3 cockpit is very good as well.

Hey DeltaGuy, can't believe that you want to go onto the F/A-18E Super Hornet after seeing that, you are a Hoover man underneath really. You know you want to...

LOL!  Wink

Correct - standard practice is for naval aviators to increase to military thrust until they feel the aircraft come to a complete stop in case they bolter or some other occurance happens.

Nope, it is SOP for jet guys to go to MIL upon touchdown. The prop guys just add about "a knob" of power... since it is virtually instantaneous (no spool up time) lift.  Wink

Back in 91 I trapped aboard the USS Enterprise in a US-3A Viking. Its an S-3 without the ASW gear, it has seats for passengers instead. They have been retired for a while now. It was in the North Arabian Sea. I about chit my pants. It was he scariest thing I ever had done and also the most exciting. I sat right behind the pilot. It was awesome, that was my first time aboard the boat. what way to go. I also have two more traps aboard USS Abe Lincoln flying on the C-2 Greyhound. It was not as cool as the S-3 though.

Fly Navy! Can you guys believe most of the student navy pilots when they do their first trap in the T-45 only have like around 250 hours if they didnt have any prior flight time before they joined the Navy.

But considerably more difficult to fly onto the ship.

Not unless USN has drastically increased the length and expense of its pilot training program. My first visit to "Lady Lex" was with a grand total of ~130 hours... 75 in primary (T28) and 55 in intermediate strike (T2C). That was slightly below the average for the time. 150-170 was the norm, but training schedules all revolve around CV availability.

Back then (1980-81) most jet drivers did NOT "qualify" their first CV visit. They didn't get enough traps. It was more of a "disqual" period... if you can't get it aboard a CV, USN stops investing time/money in additional pilot training. Jet drivers' actual CV "qualification" came during Advanced Strike training... when they had ~250 hours. As an E2/C2 "draftee" I received additional Traps (over two days) and completed my Carrier Qualification that first visit.

By the way, does anyone have any photo of the cockpit of S-3?

Thanks in advance!

The smoke you see is the AC at work. Ice chunks fly out of the vents. It works very well and you freeze your butt off. I remember it very well. My teeth were chattering.

In a roundabout way... both. 2000+ hrs E2C w/VAW117, then 600+ hrs E2B, E2C, TE2A, TE2C, C2A as IP and ASO w/VAW110.

AAR90 how did the selection process work after you got winged and went to the RAG to figure out whether you'd fly E2 or C2's

25 Post contains images AAR90 : I was a naïve, ignorant student naval aviator at the time so I don’t truly know. I was drafted into the program while in Intermediate Strike train
26 JohnJ : I love that video! Thanks for sharing.
27 Post contains images Daveflys0509 : Excellent story AAR90!! Yeah I'd say things in the program have stabilized since then, or I hope . As an inspiring tailhook turboprop pilot, would you
28 AAR90 : E-2 by far. Much more interesting missions. If you pay attention, you will learn more about how an entire USN CV Battle Group fights a war in just on
