United States Naval Aviation 1910-2010 by Mark L. Evans and Roy A. Grossnick (2015, ISBN 978-0-945274-87-2, hardback, two volumes)[1] is the Naval History and Heritage Command's fourth update to the original history which was initiated in 1960. That first issue celebrated the first 50 years of United States naval aviation and this two-volume set commemorates the centenary.

Previous editions have proved an invaluable first-stop research tool to aviation, naval and military historians. This latest update breaks U.S. naval aviation history into two volumes: Chronology and Statistics. Both have greatly increased content over the previous version beyond simply including years not previously covered. New and expanded research makes these the definitive volumes on U.S. naval aviation's first century.
