Initially published bi-monthly from November 1981 it was published monthly. An A4 size magazine, with 90-100 pages in each issue, illustrated with excellent colour and b+w photos. The first issue was issue dated May/June 1981. ‘FlyPAst’ provides excellent coverage of world aircraft preservation news, with over 20 pages of reports and photos in each issue. It is now the UK’s biggest selling aircraft magazine.
‘FlyPast’ has a very eccentric policy regarding the Internet: it’s regular review of aviation heritage-related websites never includes the web address. It is not clear whether this is due to the arrogant assumption that the older demographic of its readership cannot type accurately, or that the reviews are simply a stunt to promote hits on the ‘FlyPast’ website.
