About Publications


The premier magazine for extensive, in-depth coverage of the civil helicopter industry in North America, Vertical Magazine, which is published six times per year, is the industry’s “insider” publication. Our timely, relevant stories are written by some of the leading voices in the helicopter industry – providing a front-line, in-the-air, on-the-ground perspective by the people who are the news.

Backed by stunning photography and ground-breaking design, we focus on the sectors, operators, and equipment in the world of rotary-wing flight that interest and affect you most. Regular features include helicopter operator profiles, industry reports, flight test profiles, maintenance articles, product reviews, and avionics and industry news.

Created to be North America’s preferred trade publication, Vertical informs key decision makers – including government personnel, managers and flight operations personnel – of the latest trends, technologies and issues affecting their operations and careers.

If you work in the industry, Vertical works for you.

Vertical 911

Launched in 2008, Vertical 911 is the industry’s first helicopter magazine devoted exclusively to first responders in the emergency medical services, law enforcement, fire, and search-and-rescue sectors in North America.

With its dedicated focus on the parapublic helicopter industry, Vertical 911, which is published four times per year, delivers the in-depth reporting this sector wants: from informative articles on broader trends and industry developments, to insight on tactical issues and operating procedures from industry experts. Each issue of the magazine is also jam-packed with parapublic news, product reports and accounts of the real-life rescues that make this sector standout.

If you’re one of the people in the helicopter industry helping to deliver last-minute medical care to those in need, assisting in the apprehension of criminals, rescuing people from cliffs in challenging conditions, or helping to extinguish fires that threaten homes and lives, Vertical 911 was created for – and in honor of – you.
