Business & Commercial Aviation Publishes 50th Anniversary Milestone Issue

NEW YORK, July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Business & Commercial Aviation (BCA) has published its 50th anniversary July issue looking back on the growth of business aviation as an industry, the people and technologies that made it possible, and a forward-look at the innovations and green developments on the horizon.

Every month, BCA provides 50,500 executives, owners, managers, dispatchers, and operators of business aircraft in 185 countries with the "how-to" operations and management information they need to fly with optimum safety and cost effectiveness. Its unique and award-winning editorial makes it the number one publication among people who put aircraft to work in their businesses. For the past 22 years, BCA has been voted the "most read" and "most important" publication by business aviation readers.

"Business & Commercial Aviation began publishing 50 years ago, at the outset of business aviation's exciting turbine era," said Editor-in-Chief William Garvey. "During the ensuing decades, BCA's editors have worked hard to deliver the kind of practical management, operations and safety information flight departments need to succeed. That they've done their jobs well is underscored by the respect the publication receives within the business aviation community. We look forward to providing our signature need-to-know information in print and digitally for the next half century and beyond."
