To control speed, use the STICK.

To control altitude, use the THROTTLE.

ATTITUDE CONTROLS SPEED

POWER CONTROLS ALTITUDE


For landing, especially on aircraft carriers, the U.S. Navy teaches the doctrine

"Airspeed is controlled by attitude

(nose position)

and altitude is controlled by throttle"

To slow if too fast, raise the nose,

to control Rate Of Descent, (ROD)

adjust thrust

A combination of both - to catch that wire



The max 'Trap' weight for the F/A-18C is 33000lbs

and for the F/A-18E/F 44000lbs.

I've been trapping unsafely apparently. Been catching the second wire mostly, but from an angle - need to invest in some rudder pedals. I can practically hear the FCIs throwing down their nomex gloves in disgust at my complete lack of turn coordination, but I can't bring myself to use the keyboard rudder. Anyway, here's how its done:
