Air Facts

Air Facts was first published in 1938 by Leighton Collins, dedicated to “the development of private air transportation.” It’s a different world now, and it’s a different Air Facts. Relaunched in 2011 as an online journal, Air Facts still champions, educates, informs and entertains pilots worldwide with real-world flying experiences. No aviation topic is off-limits. Nothing predictable about Air Facts. We’ll tackle any topic, analyze any situation and have our readers weigh in with their input. And the speed of the Internet makes covering current subjects immediate – no waiting three months for an opinion to appear in print. Air Facts needs you. Here’s the amazing difference in Air Facts. It’s primarily reader-written. Yes, aviation icon Richard Collins continues to share his unbelievable wealth of information on flying, technique, weather and a host of other topics, but the majority of articles are supplied by you, the reader. By the way, we have fun too! Check out our regular series on Go/No Go where you decide whether a particular flight is safe to take. There’s no right or wrong answer – you decide. We write about our mistakes, our lessons learned and the pure joy of what it means to be a pilot. Our readers write about their trips – at Air Facts, you climb in, buckle up and ride along. Air Facts covers serious topics, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We know that pilots are always learning.
