Australian Aviation is a popular aviation-related magazine that has been sold in Australia and New Zealand since 1977.

History[edit]

Founded by Jim Thorn in 1977, the magazine is based in Fyshwick in the Australian Capital Territory.

Gerard Frawley is the current editor.[1] Frawley became Managing Editor in March 2005, after he (and business partners Lee-Anne Simm and Andrew McLaughlin) formed Phantom Media Pty Ltd in order to purchase Australian Aviation from Jim Thorn.[1]

The magazine today[edit]

The magazine is currently Australia's largest selling aviation magazine by volume.[2]

The magazine publishes eleven editions a year (January/February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December).[2]

It covers a wide range of aviation-related areas, from civil aviation to defence, safety, airlines, airports, as well as aircraft reviews. As of the November 2008 edition, the format of the magazine has been face-lifted and re-designed, as well as increased in size to A4.

It is also available electronically.
