What are people running in slot 5? I currently have the Concealment mod installed but i'm thinking of switching to the Flight Control Mod 1 since i seem to shed planes very rapidly unless top tiered. Worth the cost?

I run concealment to aid the stealthiness of both the planes and the ship itself.

Flight mod 1 is great coupled with service captain skill. 

If youre shedding planes rapidly, heres a few ideas.

1. Focus low AA targets more often. This is just memory.

2. Try a tank build. Take survivability expert, basic armor, adrenaline rush (planes bail faster after attack run), concealment. 

Or.

3. Try a restore build. Take service expert, flight mod 1, then  choose only the stock and upgraded planes with the fastest restore time.

Concealment. Helps those torpedo planes, and you can more easily move up behind your team.

I'll enclose a couple of screen shots.
I'm running Concealment Expert in Upgrade Module Slot 5

For a more "CV-build" set of Captain's Skills, the Advanced Firing Training could be swapped for Concealment Expert.
I'm running AFT + Auxiliary Armaments module with the intention of improving AA performance and increasing secondary battery range for "close encounters" that happen with me more often than with other people.
Your mileage may vary.  :-)

P.S.  At Tier-8, the AA is much stronger than at Tier-6.  Plus, you'll be facing Tier-9 and Tier-10 ships with even stronger AA bubbles.
Aircraft Armor and Survivability Expert skills are a "must have" feature of a CV's Captain's Skills.
Anything that improves a plane's chances of survival and minimizes exposure to AA fire is a good idea for a CV going in to Harm's Way.
Study the wealth of "How to CV" guides and videos and implement things that help you keep your squadrons at full strength throughout the battle.
"Pre-drop of ordnance", "Zig-zagging through Flak", "Planning your flight (to avoid or minimize Flak exposure)" and etc.
