French term or phrase: Aéronautique Navale
Le parc de l'Aéronautique Navale est au standard xxx.

I suppose it would be OK to leave this in French, but does anyone know if there is an official or standard translation for this branch of the French military.

English translation:US: Naval Aviation or Naval Air UK: Fleet Air Arm.
Explanation:
US and UK have important differences. The US Navy's aviation component is part of the Navy and operates from land as well as ships. The RAF operates the British Fleet Air Arm, including the afloat component.
I would use "French Naval Air" or "French Fleet Air Arm" depending on your target readership.
Good luck,

I was seduced by your qualifications! Your explanations were also very helpful. (To be honest, I thought that the Fleet Air Arm - which was the term that sprang to mind - no longer existed, but I've just proved to myself by a web search that it does.) Thanks again.
