Free download: World Air Forces 2013

The current print issue of Flight International includes our annual World Air Forces directory; a detailed snapshot of the active-duty inventories of 160 nations around the globe.

It’s no exaggeration to say that we work around the clock to bring you the directory, which this year pulls together data on almost 52,000 aircraft included in more detailed form in Flightglobal’s MiliCAS and Ascend Online Fleets databases.

The listings run from Afghanistan (air force C-27As and Cessna 208 shown in the Rex Features image below) to Zimbabwe, and also include information on confirmed and pending orders for almost 12,000 more aircraft.

Big thanks go to my colleagues in our Heathrow office for their sterling efforts in delivering the data for me to simplify, under what were extremely difficult circumstances.

We hope you will find the 20-page listings and accompanying five-page feature and analysis of the numbers a useful point of reference for the coming year. Fleets change fast, of course, so be sure to keep up to speed on the latest developments by visiting us here on The DEW Line, and on Flightglobal’s dedicated defence channel:

This year we dedicate the directory to our colleague and friend Martin Smith, who sadly died just days before the magazine went to press. Martin was a key and highly valued member of our rotorcraft data team, and will be missed by all who knew him.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could
    undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Terrific blog!
