Six Aviation Week editors took home honors at the 2022 Aerospace Media Awards in London on July 17.

Executive Editor for Technology Graham Warwick won the prestigious Bill Gunston Technology Writer of the Year Award. Accepting the award, Warwick noted that Gunston’s prolific writing has served as a model for him during his 44 years in aerospace journalism.

The award for Best Commercial Aviation Submission was won by Executive Editor for Commercial Aviation Jens Flottau, Senior Propulsion Editor Guy Norris and Senior Business Editor Michael Bruno for their joint coverage of AerCap’s takeover of Gecas.

Pentagon Editor Brian Everstine picked up this year’s Best Young Journalist award. In addition, European Technology Editor Thierry Dubois, who also serves as editor-in-chief of Aviation Week’s Show News, received a special commendation for his coverage of how hydrogen propulsion is taking root in Europe’s aviation industry.
