The editor is a world traveling pg pilot. The rag if full of articles on world traveling pgs adventures. This is all that gets submitted? Several of last year's covers where shots from non-U.S. sites. Maybe an agenda to try and grow the U.S.pilot base would include promotion of US sites. I have been an active pilot for 37 yrs. If I were a newbie today who picked up the rag, I would never get started. The rag suggests that flying is about world travel, big XC, and working in a field that allows for lots of time off for that travel. Not what my flying life has been. Not sure the average 20 something sees this sport as accessible when looking at a copy of our mag.
I know print media is dead, nobody reads mags today, but hey we still spend a bunch of money to produce the shiny resume enhancer.
