Naval aviation of the United States.

This list of military aircraft of the United States includes prototype, pre-production and operational types. For aircraft currently in service, see the List of active United States military aircraft. Prototypes are normally prefixed with "X" and often unnamed (note that these are not the same as the experimental X-planes, which are not generally expected to go into production), while pre-production models are usually prefixed "Y".

This list includes only those aircraft designated under the U.S. Navy's pre-1962 designation system. For aircraft designated under the USAAF/USAF system or the post-1962 unified system, see List of military aircraft of the United States.
