The Last Jedi
Depends upon the sea state. If it is summized that the sea state is to heavy flight ops are cancelled. Also weather condition play a hand..sometimes...I've seen flight ops cancelled because of weather condition. say a thunderstorm. And I've also seen flight ops conducted in heavy rain storms of various degrees.Just wondering ,on how bad weather conditions have to get before carrier ops are cancelled?
Bottom line it is up to the Commanding Officer to make these determinations.
Here's a link to the NATOPS manual governing flight deck operations.
