That was why it was first thought of. But it is not its only advantage. Far from itRon5 wrote:
SRVL re-introduces to the the RN the bolter or "go around".
No it doesn't. This is not like an arrestor laning
1. So try and list a couple. You'll be stretching because there aren't any. Takes away deck space for no gain.
2. Bollox. Go read what the landing office said.
Sorry, I've been at work and had what little brain I had drip out of my ears...
How do you have a "bolter" on an aircraft travelling at around 30-40 mph? What am I missing?
Speed is irrelevant. If the approach is wrong or the aircraft can't stop (as noted above), the go button will be pressed and the pilot gets to go around and do it over. Or go around, jettison stuff and do a VL. Extra fuel will have to be reserved to enable either course of action. That will cut into bring back loads.
