Aviation Week Vet Lands at Forbes

It would be mighty nice to belong to the target audience addressed at the tail-end of today’s Forbes announcement.

But last we checked, the FishbowlNY private jet was still at the approval stage:

“Whether your company is interested in buying aircraft, or exploring the many other options such as jet cards, fractional ownership or charter, Forbes will share the ins and outs and show how business aircraft can get you where you need to be, when you need to be there, for a true business advantage.”

To bolster its Forbes Business Aviation coverage, the publication has snagged a true subject matter superstar. For 23 years, Tony Velocci covered the beat for Aviation Week. He actually retired last year, but evidently, Forbes made him an offer he couldn’t refuse, and-or he decided retirement wasn’t quite the ticket.

Most recently, Velocci was editorial director of Aviation Week Group and editor-in-chief at Aviation Week & Space Technology. He was twice named Aerospace Journalist of the Year by UK’s Royal Aeronautical Society.
