Abstract:

Empirical measures of day and night carrier landing performance for five types of jet aircraft under combat conditions are described and compared. Successful approaches safe landings and unsuccessful approaches bolters, wave offs are analyzed and the results are discussed in terms of operational implications. Landing performance criteria are developed from the empirical measures to provide a rationale for the design and evaluation of visual landing aids. Author
