AI Carrier Battle Groups, pack 1. Adds moving naval ships as AI traffic at a variety of locations around the world, including Norfolk VA, Jacksonville FL, Napoli Italy, Atsugi Japan and many more.

This pack features some moving naval ships as AI traffic for flight simulator X, to help you practice carrier landings.

Just copy the trafficCarriers1.bgl file to the SceneryWorldScenery
subdirectory of your FSX installation, eg
c:program filesmicrosoft gamesmicrosoft flight simulator Xsceneryworldscenery

The next time you launch FS, you will see a progress bar indicating that
Flight Simulator is reading the file. If it does not happen, check your
installation path

To see boats you need to set up a minimal amount of traffic. They are
currently programmed with 4%, so check that your "Ferries and boats"
traffic setting is greater than this value.

- Norfolk, VA (two groups, one is ~50 nm away from coastlines, the other
one is leaving the naval station)
- Jacksonville, FL
- Pensacola, FL
- Fort Laurerdale/Miami, FL
- San Diego/Santa Catalina/Los Angeles, CA
- San Diego, CA
- San Francisco, CA
- Puget Sound (near Whidbey Island) WA
- Around Oahu, HI (two groups)
- Atsugi, Japan
- Gulf (Kuwait-Doha)
- Napoli (Italia)
- Toulon (France)
- Brest (France)
- Southampton, around Isle of Wight (UK)
- Barrow-In-Furness (UK)
- Around Diego Garcia (UK)
- Rota (Spain)
- Gwadar/Ormara (Pakistan)

A Google Earth File is included (carriers.kml) which can help you to locate groups.  Most of the groups are 10-40 nm away from coast, so you won't probably see them from airports or naval air station.  Using a radar or traffic explorer map could be useful to find them.


  1. Verify that the installation path is correct and traffic setting
  2. Verify that you didn't altered your FSX installation, especially directory SimObjects/Boats.
  3. Use the traffic toolbox explorer or map (FSX deluxe only) to locate boats. Make sure you unchecked "aircraft only" to see where they are.

How do you use the arrestor cables/catapult?
