Mark Phelps traces his passion for aviation back to age eight, when he’d fill up on stories of flight’s heroes, past and present, at the local library. After learning to fly after college, he landed a job as an editor at Flying, where he still contributes stories today. With 1,800 hours logged in the air, Mark is an active instrument pilot. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and twin sons.
Robert Goyer has been with Flying since 1994 and has been editor-in-chief since 2010. During his time there, he has written and photographed hundreds of stories. His monthly opinion piece is one of the most popular columns in aviation, and he is the recipient of the NBAA’s Dave Ewald Platinum Wing Award for excellence in journalism. A land and seaplane pilot with thousands of hours in his logbook, Robert has flown more than 200 types of aircraft. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his family.
Inspired by the transatlantic flight of Charles Lindbergh, the Flying brand took off in 1927 as the ultimate aviation magazine for flight enthusiasts, exclusively written from a pilot’s perspective. More than 85 years later, that formula hasn’t changed: Flying still brings its readers comprehensive coverage of personal aviation, including first-person flight reports, industry news, technology trends, and safety guidance, along with award-winning illustration and eye-catching photography.
