"Flight International" (or "Flight") is a global aerospace weekly publication. Founded in 1909, it is the world's oldest continuously-published aviation news magazine. With a team of journalists and correspondents around the world, it provides global coverage of aerospace manufacturing and aviation operations in the areas of air transport, business aviation, defense, general aviation and spaceflight. Features include the magazine's famous aircraft cutaway illustrations, flight tests of new aircraft, in-service reports and sector-by-sector analysis.

"Flight International "is published by Reed Business Information Ltd, a subsidiary of Reed Elsevier. Competitors include Janes Information Group and Aviation Week.


As of February, 2008 Flight International includes the following sections:

*"This Week"
*"Air Transport"
*"Business Aviation"
*"General Aviation"

*"Straight & Level"
*"Working Week"
*"Job of the Week"


In addition to traditional editorial content, "Flight International "also has both job classifieds and recruitment sections.


Since the late 1920s "Flight International "has become particularly well known for producing highly detailed aviation illustrations, known as Flight Cutaways and Micro-cutaways. According to Flight, the goal of the cutaways is to inform aerospace professionals of developments in civil and defense aircraft and engine programs, and in uncompromising detail, worldwide. The Cutaways are a globally recognized product and benchmark for detail and accuracy.

Within the "Flight International" archive are more than 1,100 military and civil aircraft, space vehicles and aero-engines, ranging from the Zeppelin to the F/A-18 Super Hornet, and the Wright Flyer to the Airbus A380. Flight Cutaways can be viewed on Flight's website by clicking [http://www.flightglobal.com/StaticPages/cutaways.html here] .

"Flight International"'s Senior Technical Artist is Giuseppe "Joe" Picarella, with additional work from Tim Hall.

Flight Daily News

Representing "Flight International "during major aerospace conventions and air shows is the "Flight Daily News". This daily publication covers the world's four main air shows: the Farnborough Airshow, the Paris Air Show, Asian Aerospace, and the Dubai Airshow, as well as Middle East Business Aviation.

In 2007, "Flight Daily News "was awarded the title of the world’s best air show daily publication by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the World Development Forum for the third successive year - an honour held only by Flight Daily News.

Flight Daily News's sister publication is the "Flight Evening News". Launched at the 2004 National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Las Vegas, it was a new concept in air show daily newspapers. Traditionally, show dailies have appeared in the morning, covering the happenings of the previous day. "Flight Evening News " published instead on the same day.

Journalists cover stories from press conferences, the exhibition floor and static display throughout the morning. The newspaper is designed and printed in a matter of hours, and handed delegates leaving the show late that afternoon. "Flight Evening News "is the only daily publication to follow this format, and it markets the information it provides as "today's news today".

"Flight Evening News "can be found at NBAA, as well as its European equivalent, teh European Business Associations's Convention and Exhibition (EBACE).
