Like most of you, I read aviation news on a daily basis and there are some sites that have well and truly earned a permanent place on my bookmarks’ tab.
Here are my top eight aviation titles for you to enjoy.
The International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) publication, Airlines International is, as you’d expect, packed with analysis and statistics. But, in addition to a wealth of data and industry insight the bi-monthly magazine, which is now viewable online, also provides the industry with quality interviews from leading CEOs and a ‘knowledge center’ that is packed with industry data, reports and white papers and webinars.
Covering a range of aviation related topics from defence and military right through to airlines and MRO, Flight Global is a well-known and well respected news site and magazine. Not only does it bring the industry up to date news but it also hosts a job search engine to help you broaden your horizons.
This publication has been leading the industry for over 25 years and in more recent years has seen its online presence grow through its news site, MRO-Network.com. The print magazine covers technology and innovation, maintenance and engineering, IT and industry focus, as does the website, in addition to daily news. There is also a daily newsletter that you can sign up to that comments on the most recent happenings in MRO and arrives in your inbox with an opinion piece to spark debate, just in time for lunch.
We all know about Aviation Week. It’s MRO events are marked on everyone’s calendar and it’s news outlets have a large readership. Offering a plethora of fantastic content via its magazine and website, Aviation Week is somewhat of an all rounder, but a good one at that, covering MRO and technology as well as business aviation, space and defence.
Using the tagline ‘Your Online Aviation News Source’, AviTrader does what it promises to do by delivering current news stories on aircraft and engines, MRO and production, financial news, people news and military and defence.
Another solid news site for all the latest stories in aviation is AviationPros. The website also has a selection of publications: Airport Business, AMT (Aircraft Maintenance Technology), Ground Support Worldwide and E-Military. While AviationPros’ online space reports on engines and components, tools and equipment, airports, technology, FBOs and ground handling.
A hub of hot-off-the-press news releases, ATN.Aero really is a great site to bookmark. You can expect to find official press releases directly from companies media rooms, including the big dogs such as Airbus and Boeing. Air Transport News sorts its content into six key categories – airlines, airports, suppliers, organisations, manufacturers and services – allowing you to browse with ease.
ATW (Air Transport World) has been around for quite some time now – nearly 50 years infact – so it has more than earned its spot in my list of top titles. A monthly publication, daily newsletters, weekly digests and a fruitful online website are its main offerings and each focus on delivering quality news on the world of aviation. Be sure to take some time out and explore the team’s opinion pieces and the ’Aeropolitics’ section.
