How would it start? User request, or when you reach a certain fuel state? What aircraft is it?
A user will select an add-on menu option to request for a tanker, which will then spawn overhead the boat. There will be an option in the vLSO.ini, specifying what aircraft to use as a tanker.
AFAIK, there are some tanker capable aircraft in FSX:

Here's an excerpt from the document:6.10.3 Recovery Tanking Pattern
After the receiver is engaged, the tanker aircraft shall establish a racetrack pattern in the vicinity of the ship. Unless special circumstances exist, the tanker should not proceed more than 10 miles ahead of the ship. The downwind leg should be 3 to 5 miles abeam and tanking should be completed prior to reaching a point 6 miles astern to allow for proper pattern entry.
So, I was right - a racetrack tanking
pattern of 15x3nm will do...
Can I please ask that, before you start this addition, you complete your project to make vLSO compatible with airports?
I am anxiously awaiting this so I can refine my landing technique and the go out to the carriers.
If you mean FCLP support, be sure, it will be there.
