Flightblogger Is On Flight International

Tue Nov 06, 2007 6:18 pm

Looks like Jon is moving to the big time. He's now part of Flight International:

Now we know Jon's plans and how he's bringing back his blog. Congratulations Jon!!!

http://flightblogger.blogspot.com/20...7/11/flight-and-flightblogger.html

To quote Jon from his Blog:
I want to extend my deepest thanks to Flight for supporting Flightblogger and encouraging independent coverage of the aviation industry, as well as its forward thinking approach to new media.

In addition, Flightblogger will find a new home at Flightglobal.com.

For the time being, flightblogger.blogspot.com will serve as an archive of all the work I've done to date. I will be moving over to a new permanent home at flightglobal.com later this week.

With this new partnership, I'll be able to devote my full energy to Flightblogger. I'm looking forward to increasing the scope of coverage and delving into a range of new topics inside the industry.

In the previous post, I referenced that Flightblogger was going global; both a subtle hint to the new partnership, as well as my plans for my first assignment.

At the end of this week, I will be traveling to Dubai to cover the 2007 Dubai Air Show. I'll be doing my best, jet lag and all, to deliver a unique independent viewpoint on this massive air show.


Looking forward to hearing what Jon finds out at Dubai.

Seems jon has parlayed a 'lowly' blog into a new job and career(although i think he said he was a journalist) and that deserves congratulations.

I hope this change does not affect his more 'insider' stories. I fear that some of his sources(no matter how credible or uncredible they were) will now look at it as a more commercial venture and not speak as candidly. I hope i am just going overboard in thinking this.
