BTW, i noticed something strange during mu last game: i combined one TF with only surface ships included CAs with a TF with one Cv; a search pattern was defined for the CV's TF while the CAs were making their own searches following the classic pattern of 360° within 2 hexes.
The combined TF went under attack and lost the CV.
Well after the loss of the CV, the CAs seaplanes still underwent searches but quite strangely they were following the pattern defined for the CV's TF: i had a nice orange 60° cone spreading over 4 hexes... of course i never managed to get any control over it. I suppose this is a bug... showing that it should be possible to define quite easily personalized search patterns for CA-based seaplanes ... at the cost of a CV...
