Posted 15 July 2014 · Add Comment

African Aerospace editor-in-chief Alan Peaford has been presented with a Lifetime Achievement award in the International Aerospace Media awards at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London

He was presented with the award by aviation legend Lt-Col Marc “Turbo” Grune, the Luftwaffe Eurofighter squadron leader who last year smashed the Guinness world record for the number of flat spins carried out in a single aircraft manoeuvre with 85 complete spins.

The lifetime award is judged by media and industry professionals across the aerospace industry sectors and had a nominated shortlist featuring journalists and broadcasters from around the world.

He was credited by the judges with “changing the face of daily newspapers” for his work over 20 years as consultant editor for Flightglobal’s Flight Daily News as well as being behind the launch of African Aerospace and sister-publication Arabian Aerospace. He is also a regular broadcaster with BBC World and Al Jazeera

African Aerospace was also shortlisted as the best international magazine, and air transport editor Alan Dron was shortlisted for this ‘Pilot Frights’ feature that appeared in the January issue of the magazine.
