Welcome to vNAVCAD!

vNAVCAD is a flightsim portal from which you can retrieve and fly virtual navy air training missions based on the mid-1960s curriculum. Missions include instrument training, familiarization phase, aerobatics, Field Carrier Landing Practice and Carrier Qualification.

Instrument flight training

*NEW* Continue your training and enhance your flight simulation experience with the ability to fly under zero-visiblity circumstances. Download the syllabus, set your flightsim in the right conditions and prepare for some nerve-wrecking, yet satisfying desk chair flying!

Combat Air Patrol

*NEW* Climb aboard your F-14 Tomcat and patrol the skies. Launch and take up station in your assigned area and start monitoring the airspace around the carrier or the airspace that has been labeled "no-flying zone" by UN mandate. Intercept air targets to verify their identity.

A-4 Skyhawk: The Legend

*NEW* Fly the legendary A-4 Skyhawk. The document was derived from real life A-4 manuals and takes you through 6 flights in the famous Scooter, aka "Heinemann's Hot Rod", of Vietnam era fame. Enjoy your ride in the sports car among attack planes!

Carrier Pattern flying: day and night

*NEW* Informational document that concentrates on flying around the carrier in daytime and in nighttime/reduced visibility circumstances.

Airwing page

*NEW* Fixed wing download overview from well-known Flight Simulation sites that encompass aircraft types from the Korean era to today. The overview emphasizes fixed-wing jets rather than turboprops and/or helicopters. SEE THE LINK ON THE LEFT-HAND MENU.
