History

Beginnings

Main article: Royal Naval Air Service

The Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) was first established in January 1914 under the Air Department of the Admiralty . By the outbreak of the First World War in August, it had more aircraft under its control than the Army's Royal Flying Corps (RFC). The main roles of the RNAS were fleet reconnaissance, patrolling coasts for enemy ships and submarines, attacking enemy coastal territory and defending Britain from enemy air-raids. In April 1918 the RNAS, which at this time had 67,000 officers and men, 2,949 aircraft, 103 airships and 126 coastal stations, was merged with the RFC to form the Royal Air Force. The Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) was the air arm of the Royal Navy until near the end of World War I. When the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) was founded on April 13, 1912 it was intended to encompass all military flying. ...

Fleet Air Arm

In 1937 the Naval Air Branch was returned to Admiralty control under the Inskip Award, and soon renamed the Fleet Air Arm. At the onset of the Second World War, the Fleet Air Arm consisted of 20 Squadrons with only 232 aircraft. By the end of the war the strength of the Fleet Air Arm was: 59 aircraft carriers, 3,700 aircraft, 72,000 officers and men and 56 air stations all over the world. The aircraft carrier had replaced the battleship as the Fleet's capital ship and its aircraft were now strike weapons in their own right. 1937 (MCMXXXVII) was a common year starting on Friday (link will take you to calendar). ...

Post War

After the war the FAA faced the difficulty of flying jet aircraft from their carriers. The jet aircraft of the era were considerably less effective at low speeds than propeller aircraft, but propeller aircraft could not fight effectively with the jets in combat at high speeds. The FAA took on its first jet, the Sea Vampire, in the late 1940s. The Sea Vampire was itself the first jet credited with taking off and landing on a carrier. The Air Arm continued with high-powered prop aircraft alongside the new jets resulting in the FAA's being woefully outpowered during the Korean War. Nevertheless, jets were not yet wholly superior to propellor driven aircraft and a flight of ground attack Hawker Sea Furies downed a MiG 15 and damaged others in a single engagment.

As jets became more larger, more powerful and faster they required more space to take off and land. The US Navy simply built much larger carriers. The Royal Navy had a few large carriers built completed after the end of the war but a more "natural" solution was looked for. This led to the introduction of the Hawker-Siddeley Harrier VTOL aircraft, which could be operated effectively from any size of ship. Defence cut s across the British armed forces during the 1960s led to the outright cancellation of all Royal Navy aircraft carriers, but by sleight-of-hand a new series of cruiser-sized carriers, the Invincible class, were built and equipped with the Sea Harrier. Today the Harrier forms the basis of the RN's fixed-wing strike forces. The United States Navy (USN) is the branch of the United States armed forces responsible for naval operations. ...

See also Hawker-Siddeley Harrier The BAE Systems Harrier FA2 is the latest development of the Sea Harrier fighter/attack aircraft which entered service with the Royal Navy in April 1980. ...


Helicopters also became important combat vehicles in their own right starting in the 1960s. At first they were employed on the carriers alongside the fixed-wing aircraft, but as time went on they were also deployed on most smaller ships as well. Today at least one helicopter is found on all ships of frigate size or larger. Wasps and Sea Harriers played an active part in the 1982 Falkland Islands conflict, whereas Lynx played a significant attack role against Iraqi patrol boats in the Gulf War and Commandos assisted in suppressing rebel forces in Sierra Leone.

FAA today

The Fleet Air Arm has approximately 6,200 people, which is over 10% of the Royal Navy's total strength. They operate about 200 combat aircraft and over 50 support and training aircraft.


Squadrons

Fleet Air Arm squadrons are named "No. # NAS", where No. is an abbreviation for the word Number; # is a cardinal number; and NAS stands for Naval Air Squadron. The nomenclature used by the FAA is to assign numbers in the 700-799 range to training and operational conversion squadrons and numbers in the 800-899 range to operational squadrons. During WWII the 1700 and 1800 ranges were also used for operational squadrons. In linguistics, cardinal numbers is the name given to number words that are used for quantity (one, two, three), as opposed to ordinal numbers, words that are used for order (first, second, third). ...


Squadrons presently active in the FAA are:

  • No. 700M NAS
  • No. 702 NAS
  • No. 703 NAS
  • No. 705 NAS
  • No. 727 NAS

Four different types of fixed wing aircraft are operated by the FAA, three for training, and one operationally. Pilot training is carried out using the Grob G115D2. Observer training is done in the Jetstream T2. By far the most famous of the fixed wing aircraft of the FAA was the Sea Harrier FA2. Its primary role was as a fleet defence fighter, but it also carried out Suppression of Enemy Air Defence missions using ALARM and bombing missions. It has been replaced in FAA service by the Harrier GR7/GR9, which is a dedicated ground attack variant. The fourth type is the Hawk T1, which is used to simulate enemy aircraft for a variety of training purposes, from AEW to Fighter Control, to air to air combat for Sea Harrier pilots. The Handley Page HP.137 Jetstream was a small twin turboprop airliner, with a pressurised fuselage, designed to meet the requirements of the United States feederliner and regional airline market. ...

Today the larger section of the FAA is the rotary wing part. Its aviators fly four different types of helicopter, and within each type there are usually several marks which carry out different roles.


The oldest aircraft in the fleet is the venerable Sea King, which performs a variety of missions in several versions. The Sea King HC4 serves as a troop transporter for the Royal Marines. the HAS5U model operates in the search and rescue and utility roles, while the Sea King HU5 is designed specifically for search and rescue work (although it should be noted that the HAS5Us are often called HU5s as well). The HAS6C for assault transport training; and finally the ASaC7 operates in the Airborne Early Warning role on board Britain's aircraft carriers. The Sea King helicopter is the only helicopter used by the Norwegian rescue service The Westland Sea King is a license-built version of the Sikorsky helicopter of the same name, built by Westland Helicopters. ...

An Airborne Early Warning (AEW) system is a radar system carried by an aircraft which is designed to detect other aircraft. ...


Intermediate in age is the Lynx. The Lynx AH7s, serve the FAA in observation and attack helicopter roles. Along with the Sea King HC4s, they are part of the Commando Helicopter Force, which provides support to 3 Commando Brigade of the Royal Marines. The surface combatants of the Royal Navy have their helicopters provided for the most part by the Lynx HAS3 and HMA8 aircraft. These Lynx have an anti-submarine role and anti-surface ship role provided by the Sea Skua missile, which was most prominently used to combat the Iraqi navy in the 1991 Gulf War. The Lynx was originally envisaged for surface combatants that were too small for the Sea King, but now equips most surface combatants of the Royal Navy.

The newest helicopter in the FAA is the Merlin HM1. This has now replaced the Sea King HAS6 in the anti-submarine warfare role, and is deployed on carriers in addition to some of the surface combatants of the Royal Navy. The EH101 airframe is also one of the contenders to replace the Sea King ASaC7s in the AEW role on Britain's planned new aircraft carriers.

In 2000 the Sea Harrier force was merged with the RAF's Harrier GR7 fleet to form Joint Force Harrier. Fleet Air Arm began withdrawing the Sea Harrier from service in 2004 with the disbandment of No. 800 NAS. No. 801 NAS disbanded on 28 March 2006 at RNAS Yeovilton. 800 NAS is reforming with the Harrier GR9. Once this is fully operational, 801 NAS will then reform with the Harrier.

Future Plans

It is planned to replace the Harrier force with the VTOL F-35B Joint Strike Fighter from 2012. These new aircraft will operate from the Navy's new CVF carriers, which are expected to be almost three times larger than the current ships and operate around 50 F-35s.
