Aviation Magazines in Netherlands


This is a survey of Dutch aviation, defence and aircraft scale modelling magazines. The Netherlands is the home of some of the keenest and most adventurous aircraft spotters to be found anywhere. (Dutch spotters were amongst the first to explore Eastern Europe following the fall of the Berlin Wall). As a result, a large number of Dutch amateur aviation groups have published magazines to record their activities. In contrast, the professionally produced publications don’t seem to be nearly as successful.

All magazines are Dutch text only, unless otherwise stated.

Aviation-related Magazines Guide

Title means Aviationworld. 11 issues published per year under the editorship of Thijs Postma. Formerly called Luchtvaart (‘Aviation’) but renamed after a clash between the publisher and editors, but Luchtvaartwereld ceased publication abruptly when its inexperienced financier pulled out in 1999-2000 due to an apparent unforeseen lack of subscribers. Its ‘remains’ were, after some time, absorbed by competitor¬†Piloot & Vliegtuig.


Aviation-related Magazines Guide


‘Vliegtuigparade’ was produced as a successor to ‘Cockpit’ magazine, by the same team. The title translates as Aircraft Parade. The magazine was mostly in pictorial format, with only a short Dutch text. It featured worldwide aviation subjects of general interest. Each issue had 60 A4 size pages, with 6 pages of colour photos plus many b+w photos. Although the title block on the magazine cover was rendered as VLIEGTUIG PARADE, in Dutch the title is always presented as a single word.
