They checking local area, not wide as range of the ship guns. ( I think, cause I use kongou, and they just flying circle around the ship, not far from the ship)

IIRC increases your range and spot torps earlier (until 3.1)

 

But there's a captain skill which says "+10% to all aircraft viewing radius, including scouts". Also, if scout planes increase their owner's view range, how do they spot DDs over terrain or smoke? I think they've got their own.

Anecdotally scout planes increase your effective spotting range by quite a bit when they are airborne. With cruisers at least it is quite noticeable how blind you become when your scout plane gets shot down, especially against DD's.

For BB its more torpedo spotting and DD's, you standard view range is quite far already, plane only flys 10k? away and average ship view range is 16+?
