ForumOur readership, as is typical of the aviation community, is extremely vocal! We receive a large amount of correspondence, indeed we encourage it, as our contributors and editor are quick to react to and investigate tips, views and scoops that our loyal audience sends in. Furthermore, our website provides a forum for real-time interaction and comment from the general public. Submissions are always welcomed from the public although strict selection criteria apply.
LayoutWe are extremely proud of the magazine's design, both the print and digital issues, and spend countless hours each month fine-tuning and and trying out different layouts and styling. The magazine itself is printed on ultra-high quality gloss art paper, perfectly bound (with a spine) and finished and trimmed to the most exacting standards. Consequently, Aviator takes pride of place on many readers' coffee tables and has become a highly collectible publication. We never compromise on quality and our national design awards demonstrate that Aviator is the highest quality print magazine on the national market.

We are constantly striving to improve our magazine and, consequently, welcome all suggestions, both critical and complimentary, from all-comers.
