    Around 6000 military personnel are on a US aircraft carrier.

    None. Most of the people are NAVY with some Marines. No Army troops are routinely assigned to a carrier.

    6000 if you include the Air Wing.

    It depends a lot on the particular carrier, but, 3-5000 is typical.

    Naturally...that depends on the aircraft carrier.

    There are many different sizes

    and (as one would imagine) different numbers of sailors on different carriers when fully-staffed.

    U.S. Navy Nimitz-Class Aircraft Carrier carries about 6,000 sailors, Marines, & other non-Navy personnel during deployment. But when it is at the home port (not deployed), it has about 2,000 - 2,500 crews.

      No, I do not. I was more of a Sand Sailor.

    The Enterprise has a crew compliment of about 4600. It is a floating city.

    There is no such thing as "a" aircraft carrier.
