N332DW uploaded a exceptional WW2 carrier; which brings me to ask about starting flights on carriers. It used to be a snap in FS9, as there were/are more than one package to do so.
Recently, I downloaded this offering, found on AVSIM:

This is a update version of my scenery DL_CVN75.zip. Changes in Version 2 of the cenery: 1.The Carrier model is now a private object and no longer part of the standard FSX object lib.. This allows the installation and registration in FSX scenery setting to be done like any other addon objects. The registration of the scenery in FSX below " Global, Generic & Vehicle Libraries" is no longer required !!!! 2.Version 2 has more stuff on deck of the carrier. 3.The Number 75 is more accurate according to the real carrier. 4.The ILS frequencies ( e.g. GS) is more accurat adjusted in relation to the cable zone. Scenery: Carrier Group North sea. Close to the Island of Sylt The Scenery includes: - The USS Carrier Harry Truman, CVN 75 with full function as an Airport with ILS approach capability. F18-Fighters and a Navy-Heli on the Carrier. - 2 flying Helicopters over the Carrier. - 4 Navy-Destroyers escorting the Carrier. In addition to the Carrier-Group: - A Oilrig about 30 nm northwest from the Carrier. The Heli-Pat is a landable Platform !! - 2 moving Destroyer based on a "Boats Traffic Plan" which are moving around the group according to the time schedule in the plan.

Maybe I did not understand how to install/use this carrier, but I thought I could begin a flight on it. However, when I select it, my aircraft shows on the screen, flying away from it.
Is there a way to begin a flight on that carrier, or better yet, one of the Acceleration carriers, without doing so in a mission?
