Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP)
After this lesson, you will know the procedures for flying the FCLP
pattern. You will also know the characteristics of the Fresnel lens
system, techniques for controlling lineup in the groove, and LSO
commands and responses.
This lesson covers the following topics:
The Fresnel lens
Improved Fresnel Lens Optical Landing System (IFLOLS)
FCLP pattern procedures
Glideslope and airspeed corrections
Recall that the FCLP pattern is identical to the basic Fam landing
pattern but flown with a higher degree of precision necessary to
land on a carrier.
