Aerokurier International

Aviation-related Magazines Guide

First published in 1957, and now like Flug Revue (see below) part of the giant Stuttgart-based Motor-Presse Group, aerokurier is essentially a magazine for pilots by pilots and is the official publication of the German Aero Club, AOPA Germany and Club der Luftfahrt e.V. However it is also aimed at those employed in the industry as well as young people interested in aviation.
Using many colour and b&w photos it includes the expected ingredients: news and features on light aircraft flying and ownership, engines, gliders, air traffic etc, combined with flight tests on both fixed- and rotary-wing types. Circa 138 pages each issue. (German text). The publisher was originally called ‘Vereinigte Motor-Verlage’.

Subtitled Das illustrierte Sammelwerk der Luftfahrt. This was the German-language edition of the UK originated partwork Illustrated Encyclopedia of Aircraft. It was published in 240 weekly parts between 1984 and 1988. It is not clear what took the place of the RAF squadron histories series included in the UK edition. Many colour illustrations – photos, profile drawings, foldout colour artwork etc. Following issue 240 the series appears to have continued on, for at least another year, as a weekly magazine. It finally ceased publication circa week 30 of 1989.
