We Brits think that our Invincible class carriers are really small (compared to stuff like the Nimitz!). But what is the smallest aircraft carrier in commission today, including Harrier Carriers, and Amphibs that are regularly capable of VSTOL ops.

How about Chakri Naurubet?

The British Hermes class is shorter at 198 meters, and the British and American Escort Carriers of WW2 were only around 140 meters.

IF you count helicopter ships, there are lots of small stuff. Hard to say where to stop looking.

This is the smallest I could find...

For current military if your counting helicopters the Malaysian corvettes are pretty small 62.3 metres.
