USS George H.W. Bush (CVN-77) is the tenth and final Nimitz-class supercarrier of the United States Navy. The carrier entered operations in 2009 and it currently operates from its homeport in Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia.
We created a very detailed representation of USS George H.W. Bush functional with any aircraft on MSFS.
Incredible level of detail on the modeling of the CVN-77 USS George H.W. Bush Carrier, with full PBR texturing.
Functional catapult and arrestor cables, with selectable launch speed and stop time according to the aircraft. This feature works with any payware or freeware aircraft, from a fighter jet to a B747.
7 spawnable static locations around the Earth
We will add any location you want for FREE! Email us with the coordinates, and we will place an aircraft carrier on that location for no additional cost.
Additional landable ships, such as Frigates, are placed around the carrier.
Static aircraft, including the F-35 and the F/A-18
Out of the box, the product includes 7 static, spawnable locations. This means that the carriers do not move (MSFS limitation), and flights can be started from the carrier. The carrier will be visible as a starred scenery on your MSFS map. We have created custom ICAOs for the different locations:
UGB1: Port of Origin (Norfolk)
UGB2: South of Key West
UGB3: Sea of Japan
UGB4: Persian Gulf
UGB5: South Mediterranean Sea
UGB6: Gulf of Aden
UGB7: South China Sea

We will add any location of your preference for free. Email us with the coordinates and your proof of purchase, and we will add a carrier to that location within 24 hours.
CARRIER LAUNCHER SOFTWARE (Catapult and Arrestor)
We include with the product a fully functional SimConnect kinematics software to simulate the catapult and arrestor dynamics on an aircraft carrier.
Run the Carrier Launcher software (shortcut on your desktop)
Launch MSFS and place any aircraft on the aircraft carrier. Taxi to any of the catapult locations.
Connect the Carrier Launcher software to your sim by clicking "Connect"
Select your takeoff speed, or type your own.
Set parking brakes and maximum thrust. Click on "Ready to Launch"
Release parking brakes and see your aircraft quickly accelerate to the selected speed.
Make sure your Carrier Launcher is connected to the sim (if not, click "Connect")
Select the full stop time, or type your own. The faster the aircraft, the shorter the full stop time it is. For example, for a fighter jet, a 1s full stop time is ideal.
Click on "Extend Tailhook" and land normally. The aircraft will decelerate quickly. Assist with braking as required.

Our product currently has a few limitations to take into consideration due to the current state of MSFS's SDK.
Carriers are all static objects. We have no plans to make them move since this is not possible with MSFS's SDK. Airports have fixed coordinates.
The product does not have animations. This means that the aircraft elevators and jet blast doors do not move. Currently, animations cannot be triggered by the user.
The carriers have uncontrolled ATC. There is an ATC frequency for each, but these work as an uncontrolled airport (UNICOM). AI traffic does not visit this airport anyways.
Carrier operations are basic. Do not expect carrier personnel to interact with the aircraft - user-triggered interactions are still not possible.
PAPI/VASI/OLS are not functional.
Crash Detection must be off at all times, otherwise, you might have issues using the product.
