star this property answer text <p>Shipborne Rolling Vertical Landing (SRVL) is a unique technique which is being specifically developed for operations on board the Queen Elizabeth Class Carrier. Trials are under way to develop this technique, which is at an early stage of development, these trials have suggested that SRVL can be executed at acceptable levels of risk when required. SRVL will be used at the extremes of climatic temperatures and air pressures only when the aircraft is carrying heavy weapon loads and the Ministry of Defence has previously undertaken flight trials using a Harrier aircraft on a French carrier to demonstrate proof of concept. Simulator trials are continuing. Final flight trials will not be conducted until 2019.</p><p> </p> more like this
