Some time ago in a meeting with Chinese Defense Minister Liang Japanese guests on “China can never carrier” position, causing the world to China and China’s civil aircraft of a new round of attention, and even friends through the computer to design the future of China carrier imagination map. In fact, as opposed to the construction of aircraft hardware, aircraft carrier-based aircraft commander and pilot training and the complexity of the training in no way inferior. Experts point out that the U.S. nuclear-powered super-carrier average construction period of five to seven years, and a qualified carrier pilots captain and 10 years of training is not difficult to do their duties.
captain most of the background carrier pilots
as the supreme commander of the aircraft carrier, aircraft carrier commanding the ship captain is not only responsible for the operations and training, and on the Safety of Maritime Navigation and to the administration and staff take full responsibility. In view of the core carrier fleet at sea and command center, the aircraft captain need to have excellent command capabilities and strong coordination. As a heavy responsibility, all countries of the aircraft carrier the choice of captain have a strict procedure, but there are some things in common, most have a carrier-based aircraft carrier captain flying experience.
to the U.S. Navy, for example, an aircraft carrier captain general to meet three conditions: First, they must be navy officers, pilots or naval crew came, and have some experience on the aircraft carrier landing and flight time; second candidate was elected captain of an aircraft carrier or amphibious assault ship must be amphibious transport ship or cargo than any other large auxiliary board ship (boat) long, with operating ships, air defense, anti-ship and anti-submarine and management knowledge; Third served as captain of an aircraft carrier also must complete two years of training and examination.
are mostly British Navy aircraft carrier captain has a ship-based helicopter flying experience from the active destroyer captain in the selection, usually by “three elections” by examining the ratio, resulting from training. According to statistics, the United Kingdom ‘Invincible’ class aircraft carrier captain of the final selection of the figure is surprisingly low, about all the candidates from the destroyer, frigate captain in order to select the ratio of 1 to 30.
combat aircraft pilots are the heart of
carrier can not install missiles, artillery can not install, but absolutely can not do without carrier-based aircraft. The combat effectiveness of carrier-based aircraft is the core, it can be responsible for air defense, anti-submarine, ship, ground attack and other combat missions. However, to play the best performance carrier aircraft, much will depend on the carrier-based pilots, therefore, have great attention to the Navy aircraft carrier to enhance the training of carrier pilots.
due to take off and landing ship has special requirements, and carrier-based aircraft and more diverse mission, so the training of carrier pilots and training is far more complex than land-based pilots. The basic training is undoubtedly the most difficult deck landing training, which among which the most difficult landing. In general, the taking off and landing training carrier pilots mostly from the land began. The aircraft in a very large decline in the curve, landed at 35 knots running on a carrier deck, and live with the tail hook block claim, the difficulty is self-evident. For example, the former Soviet Navy carrier-based fighter pilot training is the initial landing in the Crimea in the Ukraine Air Force Base 诺沃菲奥多罗 Kosovska famous “Naval Test Center” (NITKA) completed. The facility is based on “Admiral Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier deck, built in proportion. “Kuznetsov” aircraft carrier take-off with a springboard to block cable sector, the landing radar and optical guidance system, here are readily available. Su-27K and MiG-29K prototype are also experimental test flight at the center. Not perform tasks, some of the aircraft carrier force to shore airport would start relying on tactical training.
need more general officers commanding the aircraft carrier with
although the most powerful aircraft carrier captain, but he generally does not pre-empt control flight, flight training aviation United captain things. Air Alliance Air Wing captain’s main responsibilities include the use of intelligence, tactical operations and planning. Carrier air wing commander of the past command and control by the captain, and now directly affected by the formation commander of the command. This is because the carrier after the sea captain in the fleet aircraft carrier to be concerned about the day and night navigation and safety, almost no time to participate in the formulation and implementation of complex operational plan. Although for ease of operations management, aviation relations United captain is still subordinate to the captain, but the captain of the Air Wing’s air strikes did not plan and implement the exercise of operational command. Therefore, in order to play the role of aircraft carriers, in addition to United Airlines captain and captain of the close cooperation between the outside, it must be a higher level commanders, this is the carrier strike group commander. This position is generally a star rank or two star major general, they generally improved from an aircraft carrier in the selection of captain. He not only directed to give the aircraft carrier, but also in command of the entire aircraft carrier battle groups in the other ships, so must have more experience and experience, the intangible value of such a commander, as much as an aircraft carrier.
Chinese military expert Song Xiaojun that carrier-based aircraft carrier pilot training system is really the most important and difficult. “But since the United States to train, and it took less than 10 years, India can also be trained, why can not we train? It’s not prohibitively difficult, which many countries have done before.”
