Just picked up a copy here at Barnes and Noble in NYC and it looks great ! Nice glossy pictures, fascinating articles and some interesting stuff for next months issue. This is apparently their first issue so there does not appear to be a website yet. But definitely a great buy !!!

Looking through this magazine more closely I have to say it dosen't have anything that makes it stand out from the competition.
Airliner World already has good coverage of all aspects of civil aviation and for modern military aviation you have Air Forces Monthly.
Aircraft Magazine does a much better job covering classic aircraft and history. Jets Monthly is obviously pandering to the military crowd. The problem is that there is another magazine out there that closely matches its content:
Not to mention the fact that it being a UK publication makes it more expensive here in the States.
As much as I want this newcomer to succeed it just dosen't impress me. One aviation magazine that always impresses me is this:

It's all good to know, I am not a military aviation guy, military always has made me goose bumps as I see it as violent group/structure even I understand that we need them to be protected.I served in military back in a day for 2 years, which was a mandatory for a country I lived at that moment.I hated every day I was forced to be there! I am all about peace and that is why I only like commercial/business and GA aircraft.
So I will stick with Airways/Airliners/Flying/Airliner World and Airports.....I hardly can read all them in one month!

Quoting alberchico (Reply 3): I remember that several years ago a magazine debuted with a similar layout to Airways but went bust after 2 years.
I used to write for that magazine and now, I can only hope and pray that this owner never, ever starts any magazine. He still owes me money, he used photos without any agreement, in fact, stole them from the net. As far as I remember, it lasted less than two years.

Quoting alberchico (Reply 11): Anybody else notice theres WAY too emphasis on military aviation with respect to books and magazines ?
It seems that civil aviation material is at best a tiny niche compared to the volumes of military material you will find at a local bookstore.
This is something we're trying to do something about. I'm not allowed to advertise on here, but check out Destinworld Publishing, and if any of you out there are writers, we are looking to publish new civil aviation books!
Keeping on topic, I have read Jets Monthly and found it very interesting. I agree that it has a lot of (good) competition in the form of Airliner World, Aircraft etc. But let's hope they do well as I found some of their articles very interesting. They seem to have historic civil features, which is always good in my book.
