Editor Jay Smith jays@modelaircraft.org
In the past year we have added much additional content online at www.ModelAviation.com. This allows us to expand on articles and event coverage beyond what can be printed in the magazine.

Although it’s obvious that a large number or readers appreciate the digital content, we are taking it a step further and are bringing you a version of the magazine for Android tablets and the Apple iPad.

Our cover this month should indicates how excited we are to offer you tablet version of the magazine, completely free! Wherever you take your tablet, Model Aviation will be with you!

The tablet version is viewable horizontally and vertically and offers functional links to all websites and email addresses. As in the magazine, the font is sized to be easily readable and will feature some full-page graphics.

The Publications team has been working hard to bring you a quality product you’ll be sure to enjoy on your tablet with a lot of interactive features, not simply a magazine you flip through in a digital format.

Once you’ve had a chance to experience an issue in this format, please don’t hesitate to provide me with your feedback.



The Library (Formally Known as “the Archives”)

Have you ever wanted every issue of Model Aviation from 1975 to the present at your fingertips? Better yet, what if it was searchable so you didn’t have to flip through a stack to find that one article that eludes you?

The Library, an AMA Members Only benefit, will provide you with all of that and more. Completely searchable, it will be updated as soon as each issue of MA is released. This is the place to read articles or entire issues, new or old, online. A link to the Library is on www.ModelAviation.com.

The Library is currently in Beta release as we continue to fine-tune 37 years’ worth of data. Please provide us your feedback so we can make it even better and easier to use.



Columnists

I want to take a moment to thank all our columnists. Without their expertise, knowledge, and support, my job as Editor-in-Chief would be much more difficult. One of the best things about Model Aviation is our ability to provide coverage for all disciplines of modeling. Providing such a broad scope of knowledge would be impossible without their contributions.

We have added Scott Stoops to pen our new “Flight Training” column and Gordon Buckland will be replacing Lee Estingoy as our “RC Soaring” columnist. Ted Kraver will replace Bill Boss, the “CL Scale author, who is featured in this month’s "I Am the AMA.”



That’s all for this month. I hope you have a great summer filled with flying!MA
