Refits were carried out at Bremerton in 1977, 1982 and 1998, and from 1987 to 1991 the Kitty Hawk was overhauled under the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) at Philadelphia.
During its long service life, the Kitty Hawk’s aircraft arm has included A-1 Skyraider, A-4 Skyhawk, A-6 Intruder, A-7 Corsair, EA-6B Prowler, E-2 Hawkeye, F-4 Phantom, F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18 Hornet, S-3B Viking, UH-2, SH-60/HH-60 Seahawk helicopters, and C-2 Greyhound.
