Air Age Media’s Model Airplane News Celebrates its 90th Anniversary

New York, NY, October 1, 2018—Air Age Media is pleased to announce that Model Airplane News, the world’s model aviation authority, is celebrating its
90th anniversary this January. 
According to CEO Louis DeFrancesco, “Very few magazine brands can boast this success and longevity. We are proud of our amazing history and talented team, and we will continue to drive the RC airplane market and excite new generations of
enthusiasts into the 21st century.” 
Model Airplane News was there right at the beginning. It was 1929 and during the golden age of flying when the founder, George C. Johnson, launched the magazine. This era was one that inspired adventure. Higher, faster, farther—record-setting pilots with their radical new airplanes were the heroes for several generations of young people. And Model Airplane News was the information pipeline that helped bring so many people into the new field of model flight. 
Fast-forward 90 years and Model Airplane News has now grown into an iconic brand that continues to keep pace with modeling and media trends. A changing media landscape has given Model Airplane News the opportunity to engage readers with high-quality content anytime, anywhere through digital, social, and print channels.
