Aviation Week

The Allrounder

We realised that Aviation Week Network is a personal favourite when scrolling around in the aviation space on social media, found headlines that grabbed our attention, more than once.

Aero Savvy – Aviation Insight

AeroSavvy brings you interesting, easy-to-read aviation insight from an experienced airline captain.


I was hooked on technology at an early age, writing software since the 1970’s.  Dig deep enough and you’ll find a few articles written by me in the long forgotten “Run” magazine for the Commodore computer.

Geez, that goes way back! Shortly after the tech bug bit me, the aviation bug took hold. I’ve spent over 30 years loitering around the skies of our planet in a bunch of vehicles including the Fairchild Metro (“San Antonio Sewer Pipe”), BAE Jetstream, and the historic Douglas DC-8. I

’m a husband, father of four and a blogger. In my spare time, I’m a Boeing 757 & 767 captain for an international package express airline. There are not enough hours in the day!

World of Aviation

Big and collaborative

The world of aviation is again one of the big guys which makes it a great place to hang out and as the name suggests, is ‘world news.’ Its model is quite clever in that it uses the local knowledge of a region by collaborating with ‘partners’ such as online magazines and stories. We found the layout very easy to follow with one click and able to be followed on all the socials. This pleased us as the social icons were easy to find at the top.

Ideal for: Both the seasoned professional and enthusiast that love a one stop shop. This website is super easy to navigate and there is no aviation story left behind! 

Uniting Aviation

Industry source

We are jumping to the world of blogs here and feel that going to the source of global aviation is needed for the professional pilot. This uniting aviation blog comes from ICAO, the International Civil Aviation Organization. ICAO consists of 192 member countries and is where the direction of aviation globally stems from. Much of local regulation comes from ICAO. Not a bad blog to have in your tool kit for knowing what is coming next, what is being considered, and what the global aviation community is supporting, or condemning. You can also access ICAO TV which is recommended check-in as well if you want to stay informed at a global level.

Uniting Aviation – the blog from the ICAO

Ideal for: Professional aviators where the decisions and debates will affect you directly. It has over 100,000 followers and when you subscribe you can tailor your interest easily with check boxes, however following socials was not readily available.

The Aviationist

 Military watchdog

 We particularly like the name of this blog, being a merging of an ‘aviation enthusiast’ to ‘aviationist’ … cute. This focussed on global military news and in-depth documentary-style stories. It feels like it is a military watchdog covering all types of military aviation. It is easy to subscribe and follow on the socials.

Ideal for: Either current military professionals or simply military enthusiasts.

Hush Kit

A definite follow me website

We found the entertaining collection of articles and interviews on Hush-kit a ‘follow me’ website. Many of the articles are from external contributors and are published with the honour of the writer at heart. With a quirky play on a ‘hush kit’ which is a device for reducing engine noise, this website subscription will ‘declutter’ the noise around you and keep you interested. Not much to find in the way of socials, but we do like their merchandise online store!

“The miracle and wonder of flight, which has inspired poets, philosophers and madmen, has dwindled into a workaday procedure that we anticipate with the same enthusiasm we feel when we visit the dentist.”  – JG Ballard

Hush-Kit is reminding the world of the beauty of flight.

Ideal for: Anyone who loves reviews and articles on military history and current conversations. It has many followers even ex Top Gun pilots! It is your chance to match it with the big boys!

Plane and Pilot Mag

Aircraft ownership resource

This plane and pilot online magazine/website is a one stop place to get up to speed on your current aviation desires fast. A bit like those insurance comparative sites, but in a good way! With drop down navigation (excuse the pun!), it covers all aspects of your dream to own, has plenty of easy-to-follow resources and education, and even a contest for those that like to win.

“Plane and Pilot builds on more than 50 years of serving pilots and owners of aircraft with the goal of empowering our readers to improve their knowledge and enthusiasm for aviation.”

Ideal for: Aviation dreamers, student pilots and aircraft owners like to keep up with the latest stuff … that you ‘need’ of course! Easy to subscribe but the socials are at the bottom … urgh!

AV Geekery

Calling all aviation geeks!

It is ok to call yourself an aviation geek, it is a badge of honour amongst the true aviation tragics! The name says it all and they proudly admit that the information is provided by only the true geeks. This blog is easy to scroll through with much to catch our attention covering an excellent overwatch of the whole aviation industry. We particularly like their review on Top Gun … It will make you feel the need for speed!

 Ideal for: This blog caters for everyone, from the professional aviation geek to the wannabe aviation geek. And yay! The socials are at the top and easy to get connected with.

Jet Whine

Bold opinion and buzz

We like the simplicity of this blog but do not be fooled, beware of the bold opinion! Full of opinion, debate, and conversation on the story around aviation. People, airlines, and aviation history keeps you interested in following when you feel like an aviation fix with an opinion that makes you think.

aviation blogs and websites, jet whine

Ideal for: Professionals and enthusiasts that like to hear the scuttle butt and formulate their own thoughts about a topic that even can spark conversation over drinks! You can follow on Twitter which is cool.

Flying Mag

We are calling this the most enticing online magazine/website as the graphics grabbed us straight away. With easy to select tabs at the top, we feel like this site will settle any aviation trivia quiz! Plenty of enjoyable reading found in the news, about aircraft, avionics, training, careers and even has a podcast to follow. A plus for the commuter that drives to work still being able to stay up to date on the latest aviation whispers.

Ideal for: Aviation lovers that like to have a regular aviation magazine turn up in their inbox. There is a fee but the sweet look and access to information makes it worth considering the spend. Subscribing is online and easy and smartphone ready.


Ok we tried to avoid this well-known pilot rumour network aviation website but feel that it needed to be mentioned. It is a forum for pilots to ask questions, seek answers and get up to date on the rumours. The reason we are a little reluctant on this one is that sometimes it has been also affectionately known as a place for pilots to moan. Having said that, there is plenty to follow and sometimes is a great place to start your search on an aviation rumour you need further information on. It comes with a caveat and that is to not get into any word fights from the sofa. If you keep that in mind, it is a good one to check into from time to time.

The Cranky Flier

My name is Brett Snyder, and I am the President and Chief Airline Dork of Cranky Flier LLC. I’ve had the airline bug since I was young. As a kid, I never missed a chance to go to LAX and pick up airline timetables. My grandmother even took me to an airport hotel for my birthday one year so I could watch the planes land. By the age of 12, I had become a travel agent. Soon after I was volunteering at Traveler’s Aid.

Since that time, I’ve worked in several places in the industry. Today, my main focus is this blog along with my Cranky Concierge air travel assistance service, Cranky Daily news, and Cranky Network Weekly competitive network analysis. I occasionally freelance and consult for other companies, but not for airlines. To see a list of everything I’m doing today, head to my ethics page.

One thought on “Best Aviation Blogs

  1. I would put up there as one of the best Aviation blogs and websites. Much better than some of the above and very factual for anyone seeking job or industry advice, great service from pilots, and helping promote the aviation industry through education and facts.
