during free flight is there a way to fly and land on an aircraft carrier, or can it only be done during mission play?

Yes it is possible  Smiley  (It took me quite some time to figure this one out)
This is just an example. AFAIK there are even more carriers at different locations available.
1. Place your aircraft at KNGU (Norfolk NAS)
2. This is ESSENTIAL.  Time & Season: (any season) Friday, suggest latest at 1500 Local time because the carrier is still static.
    This means you can watch your catshots and traps via the replay function...
3. The carrier leaves at 1535. So after this time you can do circuits on the moving carrier...
4. Traffic setting:  ships & ferries at least 50%.

Where does she go once she leaves port, and does she ever come back?

The carrier leave about 1430 and turns south to about pilot ridge aprt 03nc and turns around to head back to norfolk.  It arrives back in port at about 1000am or so.  The trip south follows the coast about 10-20 miles offshore.  There are other carriers.  Go to San Diego, think it is north island NAS.  The carrier leaves there and goes to San Francisco.  It arrives there at about 2200 hrs.  There is also one in honolulu.  Haven't figured out when and where it goes.  It is possible to land on them in free flight.

The carrier in pearl harbor sails at 1641 local on sunday, and does a short trip before returning to port at 0500 local.

Almost forgot, there is another one at everett, wa just north of airport kpae, wa that leaves port at 0605 local and goes to san francisco.  Couldn't find out when it returns.  It sits just outside of the bay.

The us navy has carriers stationed at bremerton, wa; everett, wa; norfolk, va; I went to these places and found the carriers.  Then i just changed the time until the carrier left and followed.  Simply change the time as you fly and follow the carrier to see where it goes.  This took some time changing both time and days to see when they left.  There is a static (I think) carrier that sits about 20-30 miles outside san francisco.  I think this is a left over from fs9.  As my signin name says, I have plenty of time to check on this.   haha.
