The Air Force Magazine website, www.airforcemag.com, has undergone a complete redesign to provide a more user-friendly and interactive experience for aerospace professionals and all readers of the magazine. Air Force Magazine is AFA’s flagship publication and one of the world’s foremost publications in the fields of defense and aerospace reporting. From Air Force operations, programs, and people to the exploits of Air Force heroes, Air Force Magazine reports on important aerospace news and developments and provides authoritative background material. The new site features comprehensive in-depth articles, the Daily Report, Airpower Classics entries, Air Frame photos, special collections, congressional testimony, documents, transcripts, and the Air Force Magazine archive. Readers can also more easily share Daily Report entries across Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. The new site includes a members-only area that makes some online content available to AFA members only. For AFA members who have established a login for www.afa.org, the same login will give access to Air Force Magazine website content.
The F-35 Joint Program Office has officially announced plans to issue multiple sole-source contracts to Pratt & Whitney to upgrade the fighter’s F135 engine—a widely expected move after Pentagon officials indicated they would do so earlier this year instead of developing an entirely new engine.
