All countries with a maritime space, regardless of its size, have naval aeronautics. This generally includes devices on board aircraft carriers, land-based maritime patrol planes, or even seaplanes. After the Second World War, the maritime powers sought to reconstitute their naval aeronautics, in order to be able to intervene on all seas and to protect their national interests. At first, due to lack of own resources, it was the United States and Great Britain which supplied most of the aircraft carriers and on-board aircraft, before certain countries, such as France, developed their own buildings and aircraft, especially reaction. This work of more than 200 pages and which contains several hundred profiles and photographs, reviews, both alphabetically and chronologically, the naval aeronautics of each country that has one, whether small, as for Argentina or New Zealand, or on the contrary impressive, such as the US Navy. All the devices on board an aircraft carrier, with classic or vertical take-off, are thus reviewed, from the hunter to the anti-submarine warfare aircraft, including multi-engine aerial surveillance, thus giving this original subject. and rarely approached, a panorama as exhaustive as it is colorful.
