Andrew Drwiega - Editor-in-chief Aviation Maintenance

I am delighted to be taking over the editorship of such a strong and vibrant magazine as Aviation Maintenance. Joy Finnegan leaves having set the bar very high and I will have to work hard to match her achievements over the last five years.
I have been a journalist and communicator for over 30 years, the last 15 of which have been spent addressing a wide variety of issues in aviation and defense. Having reported on the international aviation market for many years, I am very familiar with many of the industry leading corporations but also appreciate the vital role that the supply chain holds, which frequently come under pressure as the world economy ebbs and flows according to the political and financial pressures put upon it (I write this on the morning of Brexit)!
My belief in print magazines is a traditional one. While social media and online cannot be matched for delivering breaking news quickly, it also contains much comment by the uninformed and those without responsibility. I firmly believe that in-depth commentary and analysis are key attributes of the specialist press.
Finally I would like once again to congratulate Joy Finnegan on a job well done and look forward to editing the next issue of Aviation Maintenance.
— Andrew Drwiega
