“Helicopters in Action” is a special edition of Vertical dedicated exclusively to helicopter photography. At 128 pages, this deluxe, limited-edition magazine features more than 100 spectacular photos from the Vertical archives.
The October-November issue of Vertical is one that many of you have
been waiting for. In our cover story, contributing editor Guy Maher
finally gets his hands on the Robinson R66 turbine, putting it through
its paces in a comprehensive flight test (p.34). As you’ll read, Guy was
impressed — if you like the R44, you’ll love the R66. In another
feature, Guy flight-tests Cobham’s new HeliSAS (p.38). Thought you’d
never hover a JetRanger hands-off? Think again.
The Vertical Photo Contest is back! In our December-January issue, we share the winners of the 2010 Vertical
Photo Contest, our second annual. We received hundreds of amazing
entries this year, and while we can’t come close to sharing all of them,
we’ve devoted 23 pages to them, beginning on p.68.
August-September issue of Vertical, we review a wildland fire season that got
off to an early — and active — start. In our cover story (p.70),
editor-in-chief Elan Head reports on 2011’s record-setting wildfires in the
southwestern U.S. and Alberta. Continuing our coverage of aerial firefighting
operations, Robin Elledge reports on the reinstatement of U.S. Forest Service
helicopter rappelling operations (p.82). And to round things out, industry
legend Pete Gillies recalls wisdom shared by a firefighter in his There I Was
column, “How Much Does a Gallon Weigh?” (p.128).
Vertical June/July Issue
Summer has arrived in North America, and so has the June-July issue of
Vertical. In honor of the upcoming Airborne Law Enforcement Association
annual conference and exposition — July 20 to 23 in New Orleans — our
U.S. cover features a phenomenal shot by Skip Robinson of an MD 520N
operated by the combined Glendale/Burbank police air support unit. In
"Joining Forces" (p.80), Skip describes in detail how these California
police departments have pooled their resources to offer their
communities a valuable service without breaking the bank.
