Three major notable announcements were made at this year’s 52nd Paris Air Show; the Airbus A380plus, a high-speed helicopter concept from Airbus known as the RACER, and Boeing’s 737 MAX 10 – all three are covered in the August issue.

AIRSCENE, our monthly news section, provides details on three futuristic designs; the Boom Supersonic XB-1 from America; the Myasishchev M-60 project out of Russia and the Guimbal VSR700, an optionally piloted helicopter made in France; Saab’s Gripen E makes its maiden flight; Eviation unveils an all-electric commuter plane named Alice; more from Embraer on the E195-E2; and the usual mix of commercial and military stories from around the world.

Lead feature this month is a detailed overview of Bombardier’s C Series airliner covering the aircraft’s design, its systems and engines and the operators.

Other FEATURES include Alaska’s Northern Edge, an exercise featuring a range of types from a 1944 DC-3 Dakota to 2015 F-35B Lightning IIs, flying in the air battle of a lifetime; behind the scenes of the US Navy’s EA-18G Growler schoolhouse; plenty of details about Poland’s upgraded Su-22 Fitters; Spanish F-18 Hornets patrolling the Baltic; Aviadarts, Russia’s annual gunnery and bombing competition featuring MiG-29 Fulcrums, Su-34 Fullbacks and Su-35 Flankers; and five glorious paint schemes applied to Typhoons and F-35A Lightning IIs to mark the centenaries of Italy’s oldest fighter squadrons.

Packed with back-to-back news stories and features from cover to cover, no other aviation magazine packs so much in to 100 pages.
