AIR International Magazine - For the best in modern military and commercial aviation 
Established in 1972, 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. 
Published monthly, 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.

  IMMEDIATELY PRIOR to writing this editorial I visited Kendrew Barracks, the British Army’s name for the former RAF Cottesmore in Rutland. At 13:15hrs local time on February 19, three RAF Tornado GR4s, ZD716/DH (lead), ZA542/035 (left) and ZD744/092 (right), made a flypast of the former home of the Tri-national Tornado Training Establishment, one of many locations associated with the Tornado around the UK to receive a final salute over three days in February: another small, but signifi cant event leading up to the Tornado GR4’s retirement from Royal Air Force service after 38-plus years of service. AIR International will feature the first of a two-part feature on the Tornado GR4 in the April 2019 issue.
  In this issue, we feature an analysis of the RAF Typhoon fleet, consider what’s likely to emerge as America’s first sixth-generation fighter, review the latest Rafale F4 standard, and provide insight into Irish carrier Aer Lingus and UK regional carrier Flybe.
  As if that wasn’t enough, we also include features on the ATR 600 series turbo props, RAF C-17 operations, Royal Thai Air Force Gripens, the use of helicopters to manage the risk of avalanches in the Italian Alps and Dutch fast jet pilot training in America, and offer a fascinating look at the Royal New Zealand Air Force SH-2 Super Seasprites.
  You can read all these stories in this issue, along with profiles of current and future Russian strategic bombers – the Tu-22 Backfire,
Tu-95 Bear, Tu-160 Blackjack and the future PAK DA stealth bomber – across 14 pages providing details of the aircraft, operations and ongoing upgrade programmes, our main theme this month.
  AIR International’s April 2019 issue will also include coverage of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, and will be on sale in the UK and around the
globe from March 28.
