"Not many GA pilots land on carrier decks (BTW which could easily be done in my 182 without an AOA gauge)."

Ok. Might go like this then:

Paddles: In the Groove, call the ball.
CessnaAce: Negative Ball. AOA disabled. No further call-outs necessary…harrumph!
Paddles: Rog.
CessnaAce: Paddles be advised; I’m gonna catch the 3 with my left wheel fairing, perform a 180, and will be ready for immediate launch on Cat1. Please clear the deck.
Paddles: Roger. Will have Tower instruct pattern aircraft go Delta Clean.

Meanwhile: (LSO’s all huddled up slapping each other’s backs with big proud smiles) That’s our Ace!
