AeroKnow Magazine Index File
This page was most recently updated February 12, 2010

Since 1975, magazines acquired by AeroKnow have been indexed into the MIF and cross-indexed into the AeroKnow Aircraft Data Index.
Indexes of every magazine in the collection will be posted here. If you appreciate this service, please consider supporting this effort.

I am removing the several dozen links to my Abbreviations  List because in web page format, it appears less than nominal in layout. To fix that, I've produced a fast-loading PDF file you can request by email.  This new way of sharing it will allow me to see how popular it is with AeroKnow visitors as well.  To request your copy of the two-page list, e-mail me --  Just write "abbs list" in the subject line. Write a message if you care to, but it's not necessary. I will respond sometimes in minutes but always in a few hours of receiving your request. The list is ready now, so feel free to request it now.

        YOUR aviation magazine should be featured here at AeroKnow's Magazine Index File. Make that happen by sending your magazine back issues and current subscription to
428 W. Vine St.
Springfield, IL 62704-2933  
       Donated magazines indexed here will be accompanied by information about cost of copies from the publisher and subscriptions and where to write to sign up for subscriptions and back issues. Put AeroKnow on your comp list today.

I need originals of the following publications. Though donation is preferred, I will consider purchasing them.

JOIN American Aviation Historical Society
   Why wait until tomorrow when you can do it today?

If I had not created AeroKnow and if I did not know of an enterjprise that does what AeroKnow does (no such enterprise exists today)
I would be the world's biggest fan of the American Aviation Historical Society. As things are today, I consider myself only one of their biggest fans, and the most I can do is support that fine organization with my dues. I urge all who support AeroKnow to support AAHSl.

TThere is no "one" periodical I recommend to readers because we all have different interests. But if you are interested most of all in American aviation, you should support AAHS by sending your dues $39 for one year; $75 for two years and $180 for three years (US subscribers only) to AAHS, 2333 Otis Street, Santa Ana, CA 92704-3846 and tell those fine people AeroKnow sent you.

The publication rights holder of two respected aviation perodicals, now not in publication, wrote to me asking if AeroKnow ever considered it was violating copyright laws designed to protect the intellectual property rights of those who go to great effort and expense to publish aviation magazines, and hinting of his disfavor of what AeroKnow is doing at this and other pages at our site. I expressed my desire not to violate copyright laws and noted how a local history collection which perserves thousands of volumes, occassionally directs visitors to a nearby copy machine.
    To better understand what I'm sure is common procedure not only in Springfield, but in thousands of collections all over the world, I visited the Sangamon Valley Collection, located at Lincoln Library. I was told by a staff member who stated emphatically that he was not an attorney, that the copy machine is there for visitor use, but collection staff are strictly prohibited from making copies for visitors requesting copies. The visitors must do that themselves and insert coins into the machine to pay for the service.
   After considering the matter, I have decided to propose this:
    1. When you see an article of interest in a magazine whose contents is shared at this web site, write to the publisher asking to purchase a copy of that issue. If the publisher's address is not listed, that is because the publisher is either out of business or not an active AeroKnow supporter. In this case, ask your associates, use a search engine to find publisher's information or consider a new third option.
    2. E-mail me --    -- indicating what article(s) is/are of interest to you, including the magazine title and when published. State in your note that you will pay copy cost and first class postage. If you want me to scan an article, state you will post a link from your aviation web site to AeroKnow, will send me a spare aviation magazine or two or three in support of AeroKnow to 428 W. Vine, Springfield, IL 62704.
    3. I will e-mail with estimated copy cost if you want hard copies made. If you want hard copies, send me your conventional mail address.
    4. Please understand that because of copyright laws, material provided to you via scan and email or via hard copy and conventional mail should be considered a loan. Return it to me if you conveniently can or forget about it. Just be aware that you are responsible for your use of loaned material.
    Your thoughts regarding this method of sharing copies of magazine articles are welcome and may be sent to the email address provided above
