‘Defence Helicopter’ (ISSN 0963-116X) was launched in 1982 as the only international magazine dedicated to military helicopters. It was intended to provide a unique focus for all those involved in manufacturing, supplying and purchasing helicopters for military use. Under this title it was a glossy A4 size quarterly publication with 56 pages each, illustrated by many colour photos and some diagrams. In 2003 it merged with sister title ‘Helicopter World’ to become the bi-monthly ‘Defence & Public Service Helicopter’.
As well as regular news analysis, the magazine provides exclusive in-depth operational and technical features, interviews with key military and industry figures, new product information and authoritative comment – plus a range of special features on key industry issues. Coverage of public service helicopters is focused on special quarterly supplements which provide in-depth coverage of the subject using the resources previously employed with ‘Helicopter World’ magazine. Known for a while as ‘Defence Helicopter World’ [ISSN: 0263-5062]?
