RYE BROOK, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 10, 2001

Four contributing editors at Business & Commercial Aviation (B/CA) magazine have been recognized as Aerospace Journalists of the Year by the Britain's Royal Aeronautical Society. The awards, among the most respected in the global aerospace industry, cited the writers for excellence in four separate editorial categories.

Presented to B/CA during ceremonies at the recent Paris Air Show, the four awards are the most ever won by a magazine in a single year, and, combined with awards received by its editors in previous years make B/CA the most decorated business aviation publication in the 136-year history of the RAS.

This year seven B/CA editors were nominated in six different categories. The individual winners were:

 -- John Wiley for Best Air Transport Submission, "Booming Over
 the Atlantic"

 Nature: Gust Fronts"

 "Problem PEDs"
