In the March issue of Airliner World, we pay tribute to Hugh Hefners Big Bunny, arguably one of the most iconic private jets to take to the skies. We travel to Abu Dhabi for the unveiling of national carrier Etihad Airways new aircraft, uniforms and branding and we join Italian operator Meridiana on its prestigious transatlantic service to New York.
The latest edition also includes a profile on Air Canada rouge, the flag carriers latest attempt at cracking the low-cost market, while we celebrate the near 35-year history of the Boeing 737 in service with British Airways ahead of the types imminent retirement. Elsewhere, we report on ATRs multi-record-breaking year, cover the delivery of the first Airbus A350 XWB to launch customer Qatar Airways and we look at buying flight simulation hardware on a budget
The March issue also incorporates our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including highlights from the Airbus and Boeing annual reports; Avianca and AZAL Azerbaijan Airlines take delivery of their first Boeing 787 Dreamliners; International Airlines Group bids for Aer Lingus; and Mitsubishi begins testing its MRJ90. Finally, we have all of our regular sections covering the latest commercial aircraft acquisitions, up-to-date accident reports and developments from the world of aviation training and MROs, plus we give readers the chance to win a 12-month subscription in our caption competition.
