Abstract
 Eurasian region and Indian Ocean has great strategic attraction owing to their geography, which combines them as a single pivot of global geopolitics in the 21st century. Historically, there has been a universal consensus among all the strategists, despite the difference in their approaches, that Eurasia
and Indian Ocean are the key regions to extend the political inuence at global level. Various land
 power and sea power theories were presented to achieve this goal but the rise of aerial warfare over sea i.e. naval aviation, has changed the modern approach of safeguarding and extending the political
and military inuence of a state in any region. Technological strides made in air-sea warfare, since the
World War II, transformed the naval aviation into a credible strategic force over sea and land and
an inuential foreign policy as well. The US, being the most dominant global power, has been trying to extend its inuence in the Eurasian region for many decades. The U.S. naval aviation capabilities
and future plans along with her foreign policy goals for the region are the primary driving force behind
the naval power competition in the Indian Ocean. This paper examines the emerging trends of naval
aviation in the context of prevailing geopolitics in the region with a focus on strategic importance of
Indian Ocean and the Eurasian landmass. This analysis of balance of power of naval aviation in In- 
dian Ocean is critical as it has far reaching implication for all the littoral nations in the region particu 
larly for Pakistan due to the Indian participation in this strategic competition as an American ally.
