‘Popular Aviation’ was a magazine aimed at general readers, with a combination of factual articles, modelling features and fictional stories. It first appeared in 1927 under the title ‘Popular Aviation’, became ‘Popular Aviation and Aeronautics’ in 1928 and ‘Popular Aviation combined with Aeronautics’ (or simply ‘Aeronautics’) between June 1929 (Vol.4 No.6) and June 1930 (Vol.6 No.6), before reverting to the simple title ‘Popular Aviation’ in July 1930. In 1940 (Vol.27) the title merged with ‘Flying’ to become ‘Flying and Popular Aviation’, but in 1942 (Vol.31) the magazine became ‘Flying’ (see above). Issues during the late 1930s typically had 90 pages each with many b+w photos.
A bi-monthly magazine of the same name appeared in 1967, but did not last very long.
