Flight International

The world's oldest aviation journal, Flight International was originally founded in 1909 under the title Flight, but in 1962 was renamed Flight International. The magazine is printed in smaller than A4 format and has about 50 pages in each issue. Most of the content consists of news, but there are also a number of aircraft/analytical articles in each issue, which discuss modern aircraft and aviation. There are also regular features on employment and training with aviation and aerospace vacancies. Learn all about the moving of aerospace companies, and other related flight companies, with one of the most cherished flight magazines.

Flight International covers all spheres of modern aviation in a very detailed and professional way. Cutaway drawings usually appear once a month, while annually there are usually surveys of airlines, air forces and aircraft. Flight International is a truly International magazine; it has divisions in the United States, Asia and the Middle East.
