The basics:
Have you ever wondered what the people have to do to make a plane take off a

ship Well I interviewed my grandfather, cause he was a pilot about 50 years ago, back in

Russia. And this is what he had to say.

When an aircraft is launched off the flight deck of a ship at the beginning of the day,

it starts off by fueling up. While the plane is fueling up the pilots are down below in their

ready rooms getting briefed from their commanders for the days mission. The wind speed

is checked by the ships crew on the bridge where they steer the ship, if there is no wind the

ship speeds up to make just the right amount of wind and then reports to the pilot?s that the

wind is at the correct speed and the ship is in ready for launch time. The pilot?s then get

suited up and head up to the flight deck and do a walk-around their plane to see for any

loose or damaged parts. They then get into the cockpit (were the pilot sits) and prepare for

flight. The plane is then started by a huffer which is
