‘Aero’ was another of the editor-published aviation magazines that appeared in West Germany in the late 1940s. It proved to be a well-received authoritative publication and survived for nearly two decades. The magazine described itself as Aero : Unabhängige Monatszeitschrift fűr die gesamte Luft- und Raumfahrt (Aero – Independent monthly magazine for aviation and space).

Each issue had xx pages and was illustrated with numerous black and white photos. Topics covered included aviation news, gliders, powered flight, air forces, aviation and industry, aviation books, flying club activities. The editor, Hubert Zuerl was very prolific and produced a significant number of aviation books, especially on gliders and WW2 aircraft. The magazine seems to have closed down late 1969 or early 1970.
