List of aircraft carriers in service

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

  Countries currently operating fixed-wing aircraft carriers (8)
  Countries currently solely operating helicopter carriers (6)
  Historic operators of carriers (3)

This is a list of aircraft carriers which are currently in service, under maintenance or refit, in reserve, under construction, or being updated. An aircraft carrier is a warship with a full-length flight deck, hangar and facilities for arming, deploying, and recovering aircraft.[1] The list only refers to the status of the ship, not availability or condition of an air wing. This includes helicopter carriers and also amphibious assault ships, if the vessel's primary purpose is to carry, arm, deploy, and recover aircraft.
