    My guess is 1943 for both.  WWII was a time of the largest sea and aircraft deployment the world has known and since sextants were the only try navigational aid, it is safe to say sometime during the 2nd World War.

    In what year did the number of sextants at sea peak?

    Bonus (easier):

    In what year did the number of sextants in the air peak?
