Wired for Success: The Next Century of Traps & 'Trons

March 2023

March of this year marks the beginning of the second century of U.S. carrier aviation. Created for the Tailhook Association's 2022 Symposium, this Aerocature(tm) highlights the incredible advancements in carrier aviation technology and safety. The Navy's first carrier, the USS Langley (CV 1), was a converted collier (coal carrier). Prophetically, it was the Navy's first ship to be "electrified" with a turbo-electric drive. One hundred years later, the USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) has taken electrification to a new level with electric catapults and arresting gear.

Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?), and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your order for the Aerocatures™ Calendar now!
