ALA – Aviacion Latinoamericana

Aviation-related Magazines Guide

Magazine focusing on civil and military aviation in Argentina and neighbouring countries. The first issue was dated November-December 1982. Initially called Aviacion Latinoamericana, but soon abbreviated to ALA. The first 8 issues were in Spanish with high-quality printing and expanded rapidly from an initial 16 pages per issue to 48 pages per issue. Intended to be bi-monthly, the title ran into financial trouble after issue 8 and was forced too move to a cheaper production process, and switch to English to appeal to a wider potential readership. Issue 9 onwards appeared quarterly and comprised 28-32 pages per issue.
