This is my last blog entry of the year and while I'm really looking forward to the break, I'm also pretty excited about some of the developments we've got planned for Flight International in 2012.
One of the biggest initiatives is a tablet-compatible version of the magazine. Although we've published digital versions in the past on platforms such as Newsstand and Ceros - essentially facsimilies of the printed pages - the Apple iPad and other tablets really take the technology and the reader experience to a whole new level of enjoyment and interactivity.
We'll be telling you more about that in due course.
Other things we've got planned include a new weekly "Interactive" page in the magazine, with news of all our great associated products, from air show coverage to conferences, and interactive magazines to upcoming cutaways.
We'll be hosting two flight safety conferences in 2012 - one in Singapore and one in Europe and I'll be off to the Middle East for the fifth version of our Careers Guide, looking at the jobs market in this most exciting aviation region.
As ever, we have a frenetic air show agenda, with Singapore, EBACE, Farnborough, NBAA, ILA and MEBA just some of the events we'll be reporting from in print and online.
If you have any comments whatsoever about the magazine, I'd love to hear from you directly on email@example.com
