Looking Ahead   

What would you like to see from Rotor & Wing?

In an effort to provide a snapshot of the hundreds of stories in the helicopter industry that we cover each year, Rotor & Wing has assembled a list of more than 600 items published from January to early November 2010. These news stories, features and product announcements ran in the pages of the print magazine, as well as our daily Top Stories at rotorandwing.com, and in some of our more prominent monthly e-letters and special publications like Heli-Expo Show Day. But the list does not cover the entire spectrum of Rotor & Wing’s various print, web and e-mail offerings—it is just a sampling of our coverage, as there are many additional stories available online and through our other distribution channels. While we are fully aware of the potential pitfalls of running a list like this, in that it clearly points out specific companies who we might not have covered as well as others, that is part of the reason we wanted to undertake this exercise—to gather feedback about what readers want and open the door of communication with those companies that might warrant additional coverage. We’re constantly trying to find ways to improve. What would you like to see in the pages of Rotor & Wing? What areas should we focus on during 2011? Which topics, events, markets and companies do we need to cover more? Please e-mail your suggestions to Andrew Parker, Managing Editor, at: aparker@accessintel.com
