Lead feature, and emblazoned on this month’s magazine front cover, is an overview of Russia’s first fifth-generation fighter, the Sukhoi Su-57, two of which displayed at Zhukovsky airfield during the MAKS 2017 air show.

Other FEATURES consider the improvements made to the legacy Boeing 777 airliner; Air Force 2030 – a look at policies and plans shaping the US Air Force in 2030; the concluding part of AIR International’s coverage of the US Navy’s EA-18G Growler training squadron; a trilogy of Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16 stories from Lithuania, Arizona and Friesland; Italy’s elegant Tecnam P2012 Traveller commuter aircraft reviewed; photos and a report from this year’s Russian naval parade featuring rare Tu-142 Bears, Il-38 Mays and MiG-31 Foxhounds; the continuing double-digit growth of Aeroflot – Russia’s biggest carrier; despite programme delays and whopping great cost overruns, the German Luftwaffe’s A400 fleet seems to be making operational progress – AIR International visits the squadron; bristling with new technologies, Dassault Aviation’s Falcon 5X looks to be the latest hot-rod business jet bound for the market; we review how the US Marine Corps continues to recapitalise its aviation fleet amidst a high operational tempo and commitments around the world; coverage of the RAF’s Sentinel and Shadow spy planes, and the latest ISR systems being developed for the all-important intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission.

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