What our readers say
I read Cross Country for the brilliant flying stories from all round the world and the global news.
Hey guys, want to congratulate all of you on the quality of the writing. Laughed, cried, got inspired, learned. Superb. Cheers.

There’s no other mag like it. Thanks for filling my bookshelves since 2000 and inspiring us to fly higher, further and with big smiles on our faces.

Cross Country is an institution. It helps define the sport, and pushes the limits knowledgeably and safely.
It’s simply the best English-language flying magazine out there.
Eye candy, great articles, inspiration, shared knowledge, and guidance. Love it!

Love the technique articles
I love the new format of the print magazine. Beautiful to look at and much easier to read.
The magazines are great. They keep me going when I’m not flying.
The new layout is much better and I really do prefer it. Larger print and no overlaying print on pictures. Well done.
