‘JP4 – Mensile di Aeronautica e Spazio’ is a general interest aviation magazine which covers a good balance of modern/historical and civil/military subjects. It is especially good on world air forces and aircraft operated by the Italian air force. It includes a comprehensive news section, plus modelling, sport aviation and aircraft accidents columns. Originally subtitled just Mensile di Aeronautica, the words e Spazio were added around 2003. Issues from the 1970s appeared in a page format smaller than A4, but a move to full A4 size was made in the 1980s. It is a glossy 64-68 page magazine with many b+w and colour photos and drawings.
