Wolin, a 42-year aviation industry veteran and consultant, says he saw the need for a niche publication aimed at those who use the world’s 33,000 turbine aircraft for business travel, as did the management team and its six-member advisory board, who represent all segments of the industry.
“There are dozens of magazines and websites which provide information on the technical aspects of flying and maintaining aircraft. Business Aviation Advisor is for the back of the airplane: executives, owners, senior managers, and entrepreneurs, for whom corporate aircraft are a critical business tool, not a lifestyle accessory,” he said.
Creative Director Raymond Ringston of Ringston Media, who has 20 years of experience in business aviation publication and web design, added, “Business Aviation Advisor will present timely, critical information to business aircraft owners and users, prospective owners and users, and their advisors, to help them make better informed decisions about their business aviation investments.”
Written by experienced industry experts representing all segments of business aircraft management, the launch issue features articles on Six Sigma for Corporate Aviation, Cabin Safety, and a review of industry forecasts. The launch issue will reach 37,000 readers worldwide, with controlled circulation drawn from recognized aviation data bases like Jetnet.
“Industry trade groups like the National Business Aviation Association and the General Aviation Manufacturers Association recognize the need for this information source,” stated Wolin, “and support our efforts to reach aircraft owners and charterers.”
