2 thoughts on “Aviation Magazines in Brazil

  1. If I may — despite its name, the Revista Força Aérea is NOT the official Air Force magazine. In fact this point is stressed in the magazine’s issues themselves. On the other hand, Revista Aeronáutica is/was the official magazine from the Aeronautics Club, which is an Air Force-sanctioned Air Force officers’ club; and Aerovisão is an official Air Force magazine. Furthermore, Espejo Aeronautico is not a Brazilian magazine, as it can be seen that it is published in Spanish — not our Portuguese.
