Aviation Week Network is the largest aerospace and defense business information, intelligence and services company globally, and our award-winning content continues to attract several millions of visits each year. The majority of content on AviationWeek.com is only accessible to those with a subscription to our publications, although we do open up a small selection of content to the wider community.

As part of our commitment to better serving our professional audience, we recently surveyed subscribers to understand what’s important to them when it comes to comments on our website. We’ve taken that feedback on board. Going forward, the ability to make and read comments will be limited to subscribers of Aviation Week Intelligence Network, Aviation Week & Space Technology and Business & Commercial Aviation. If you are not a subscriber, you will no longer have commenting privileges.

We haven’t taken this decision lightly. Community is at the heart of what we do. But with comments limited to professional subscribers, we expect the quality of comments on our website to be focused on intelligent discussion and bright ideas that help the industry grow.
