What our readers say
I really like the re-launch. Cross Country looks, fresher, more attractive, more professional. Well done!
Still a happy reader after nine years’ subscribing.
The new layout is much better and I really do prefer it. Larger print and no overlaying print on pictures. Well done.
Keep up the great work – no one does better
I read Cross Country for the brilliant flying stories from all round the world and the global news.
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.

If the house starts burning down, Cross Country is the first thing I will retrieve!
Cross Country is an institution. It helps define the sport, and pushes the limits knowledgeably and safely.
Well Done XC. As a relatively new pilot I am starved of information. Keep up the good work.
