During nineteen months of war, naval aviation experienced explosive growth, expanding from a tiny complement of 38 aviators to 1,656 trained pilots, with thousands more in various stages of instruction. The total force surpassed 6,700 officers and almost 30,700 ratings, as well as 282 Marine aviation officers and 2,180 enlisted men. As many as 570 aircraft were shipped abroad or acquired overseas. Wartime programs created a substantial infrastructure in the United States, including multiple air stations and a huge inventory of aircraft, as well as thousands of trained flyers and personnel. Initiatives under way or planned at war's end created momentum for future activities.
