Is there anyway to have aircraft carriers in fs2004? I have no clue if there is or not. If there is I'd like to know how to use them. If not... well whatever. 😕

There's a carrier already in MSFS 2004 that you can land on.

Aircraft Carrier CVN-63 Kitty Hawk Off the coast of San Francisco ( Located at N37*44.39 W122* 38.32 1000' Heading 063). SAU (116.2) VOR 200 radial 8 DME. Fly Northwest out of San Francisco International Airport (SFO) or Heading 200 from the Golden Gate bridge. Deck is about Heading 060.

No. I wish there was. 😀 You can use small, slow aircraft and just takeoff. I have landed and taken off the ford trimotor and piper cub. If you have trouble, create some wind down the deck to help you. You might even get the DC3 stopped with Hurricane force winds. 😂
You will need a third party addon for a catapult.

You may want to check this out. can find it on AVSIM

It features: (1): A catapult gauge, enabling a catapult-launch takeoff. (2): An arrester gauge, enabling a cable trap landing. (3): A "meatball" HUD gauge, enabling accurate approaches and landings.
