FLUG REVUE receives award from the RAeS
The UK’s prestigious Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) has singled out FLUG REVUE, the aerospace magazine published by the Motor Presse Stuttgart publishing house, as the best non-English-language international publication.
The Aerospace Media Awards were newly introduced this year by the organisation of aerospace engineers founded in 1866 and whose patron is Queen Elizabeth II. They were contested for in six categories and presented at a gala event in London on the eve of the Farnborough Air Show.
FLUG REVUE’s prize was handed over by Dr. Theodor Benien, member of the Board of Management and Head of PR & Communications of Eurofighter GmbH, and Wing Commander Andy Green, who in October 1997 established a world land speed record of 1227.99 km/h with a vehicle powered by two jet engines that still stands today. Civil Aviation editor Sebastian Steinke received the award on behalf of the entire team of FLUG REVUE.
Commenting on the international award, Volker K. Thomalla, Editor-in-Chief of FLUG REVUE, said, “For us, given the fact that the German language is a rarity in aerospace circles, this honour is something very special.” In the final shortlist FLUG REVUE was up against four other finalists.
FLUG REVUE is the aerospace magazine with the biggest circulation in German-speaking Europe. It concentrates on the latest issues in business and industrial policy, civil aviation, business aviation, spaceflight, military aviation and technology.
