Now well into its fourth decade, Defence Helicopter's unrivalled reporting is respected and read by those involved in military and parapublic aviation. From the strategists to the pilots who fly the missions, from airframe researchers and developers to weapons and equipment users and designers. We also feature 'after-action' reports from those who were there, read by those who may soon take their place. DH informs, analyses and provides the facts.

Complementing the magazine's expanded editorial coverage is www.Rotorhub.com, a major daily news and information resource for both the civil and the military communities. Shephard provides the international helicopter community with its most comprehensive portfolio of specialist information services and an array of cost-efficient sales and marketing opportunities.
