Enter the Supercarrier

July 2019




Commissioned on 22 July 2017, the USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) is the first in a new generation of aircraft carrier. These supercarriers have a redesigned flight deck for more efficient flight operations, and powerful new radars and electronic systems. But the biggest change is not visible from the outside. In the Ford class, electric systems replace the current steam catapults and hydraulic arresting gear. Aircraft are launched by the Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) and brought to a stop by the Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG).




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!
