The new title quickly attained the position of Britain's premier aviation magazine.
It was renamed 'Air Enthusiast International' in January 1974, then 'Air International' in July 1974 to reflect its growing readership. The magazine was widely acclaimed for its authoritative, well written, articles and good mix of civil/military and modern/historical subjects. The feature articles mainly concentrated on aircraft types, air forces/airlines and the pilot's impressions of flying famous World War Two aircraft types.
