This Saturday I have a flight in a Pipistrel Virus SW. I am friends with several people who are members of a flight club and they are looking to add it to their fleet.

I DID say I was pretty sure it was from an anime.

Your simulator isn't as high speed as this one.

Maybe my computer is like the old Link trainers because I can't even run the video link, much less the card(S) required for the simulator.

Several of the actions require 3-5 inputs through menus or modes or imbedded screens. That's not so good. Notice no one was going after them, attacking and defending oneself would really ramp up the workload (which seems high to me already) on those display systems. Moving some of those sub screens seems sub optimal, too. There was the FMS CDU like display too. You get everything in multi screen, often buried, displays.

While we are talking about the F-35, I read an article today that said they won't be able to use them on carriers. The arresting gear won't work properly, and there is nothing that can be done according to the article. The UK is pretty upset about it, but it didn't really mention anything about the US.

The issue is with the tailhook design itself and is already being addressed. It should be a fairly simple and straightforward fix, as it is just the design of the hook itself and none of the ancillary structures are affected.

Isn't the whole point to takeoff and land harrier style?

Or did they buy the ripoff version that doesnt include the one function the jet was only designed to do?

Three versions of the plane are being built: CTOL(conventional take-off landing, Air Force), VTOL (Vertical take-off landing, Marines) and CV (Carrier variant, Navy).

I thought the UK was chucking a lot of their carriers anyway, maybe making them into bed & breakfasts.
