Latest Issue: December 2017

AIR International, Key Publishing's longest-running aviation magazine, is reborn.

New style - New layout - New sections

Expanding on our legacy for covering the world's aircraft and helicopters, the December 2017 issue features an 18-page feature on Boeing's 777X, the biggest ever feature on the new generation Triple Seven.

In addition to our regular news stories, news reports, news columns and features, the December issue also includes new dedicated sections on military helicopters, unmanned air vehicles and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems.

We've also introduced something different on the back pages; sections dedicated to commercial helicopters, business and commercial aviation.

This month’s FEATURES focus on the US Air Force's experiment for commercially available aircraft suitable for the light attack mission; maiden flight of the Airbus A330neo; Serbia's new MiG-29 Fulcrums; KLM’s farewell to its last Fokker aircraft; Japan’s fighter demonstrator, the Mitsubishi X-2 ShinShin; Italy’s HH-101 Caesar combat search and rescue helicopter; and an account of flying and fighter the F-22 Raptor - America's silver bullet fighter.

Packed with back-to-back news stories and features from cover to cover, no other aviation magazine includes so much in 100 pages.

The all-new AIR International, available globally from November 23rd.

Make sure to order the January 2018 issue featuring a detailed overview of US airpower – a big but needy defence requirement – covering the world's biggest fleet of combat aircraft and helicopters. Available globally on December 28th.


Welcome to your all new AIR International

Launched in 1972, over the years AIR International has established an unrivalled reputation for authoritative reporting and coverage of the full spectrum of aviation subjects.

More recently we have tried to improve the magazine from cover to cover. We have more correspondents and top aviation writers from around the world, offering even more exciting news, features and stunning photography.

AIR International has more pages than ever, all still dedicated to commercial and military aviation. Our new, more contemporary and colourful design, packed with more images and improved graphics make each page easier on the eye and, most importantly, more enjoyable to read!

So what’s new in AIR International?

There’s more coverage of all the latest news stories and events, now split by geographical region. Furthermore, we have introduced news columns and a section of 'news in pictures'. Plus, there are dedicated news reports, more features and factual insider information.

AIR International still offers an unrivalled focus on the world of modern aviation. One big change is that we have new exclusive interviews providing answers from the people at the forefront of both military and commercial aviation.

The military segment still covers all aircraft and helicopter types in service with the world’s air arms. However there are new air exercise reports, offering worldwide coverage of activity, with editorial focus placed on their objectives, training value and the latest systems in action.

Additionally, there’s heightened exposure of UAVs with reporting on how unmanned aerial vehicles continue to evolve and adopt more military and scientific roles.

The commercial section continues to have great features and profiles on airlines. However we reveal how the airlines work. Moreover, we feature aircraft and helicopters in a variety of operations and roles within companies, institutions and para-civil organisations.

There is a new focus on technology with the latest systems used for research, flight test and science.

We believe that these changes have improved the reading experience of all of our readers whilst retaining AIR International’s rich tradition of aviation journalism and why not see for yourself!
