Despite its sizable aviation efforts in France, the American Navy looked principally toward Britain for guidance. During the war Britain constructed an enormous number of air stations, depots, training establishments, and experimental sites. Its technical advances dwarfed those of other nations. The Admiralty supported extensive activities to combat the submarine menace, protect the homeland from aerial attack, and provide eyes for the fleet, utilizing dirigibles, kite balloons, land planes, seaplanes, and the world's most advanced flying boats. The vast reach of the Royal Naval Air Service stretched from Scotland to France, the Mediterranean, Greece, Egypt, Africa, and Iraq.
