Nevertheless, it was the only magazine on gliding in Greece and the world of sport aviation embraced it immediately. In the third edition there was twice as many pages (32 pages). From the May 1975 issue the magazine introduced colour illustrations and included 48 pages. In January 1976 the size doubled again, but this time in page size, as it appeared for the first time in a large format (21×29 cm) with a redesigned cover. The magazine continued to be published until October 1979 with the same title by the Aero Club of Piraeus. Then came two more issues with the same logo and the sub-title Sport replaced with a translation of the main title (AVIATION). The very last issue was No.33 dated February 1980.

From at least issue 4 the magazine started to move away from purely concentrating on Sport Aviation and become more of a general interest magazine. Feature articles on vintage aircraft and military jets appeared quite often.
