NEW YORK, Feb.15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Veteran aviation journalists Tony
Osborne and Cathy Buyck are the newest members of the international team of
editors at Aviation Week (http://www.aviationweek.com), while Frankfurt-based
Jens Flottau has been promoted to lead the Commercial Aviation team. Osborne
joins as the new London Bureau Chief, and Buyck will serve as contributing
editor from a newly opened bureau in Brussels.

Flottau was named managing editor of the Commercial Aviation team, which
provides coverage of airlines, aircraft builders and suppliers for Aviation
Week & Space Technology and the Aviation Week Intelligence Network. He will
direct a team of writers across Europe, the U.S., Singapore, China and the
South Pacific. Flottau has been reporting on the air transport industry since
1992, when he was still a student. He graduated from the Munich Journalism
School in 1998 and began contributing articles to Aviation Week two years
later. Prior to his appointment as managing editor, Flottau oversaw coverage
of Airbus and airlines in Europe, Latin America and Africa. He has published
books on the airline industry, the history of the Boeing 747 and emerging
aircraft manufacturers such as Embraer and Comac. Flottau received the Hugo
Junkers award for Germany's aviation press in 2003 and was named Germany's
Business Journalist of the Year for Tourism/Air Transport in 2010 and 2012.

Osborne has joined Aviation Week as the new London bureau chief, focusing on
the European defense market and the global helicopter industry. Osborne comes
to Aviation Week from Shephard Media Group, where he was deputy editor on two
rotary-wing magazines, Rotorhub—which he helped create—and Defence Helicopter.
He also covered a range of defense issues for other Shephard publications. A
longtime aviation enthusiast, Osborne contributes regularly to Internet
aviation forums. An accomplished photographer, his images have appeared in
aviation publications and newspapers across Europe.

Buyck joins Aviation Week as a contributing editor and covers European
regulatory affairs, commercial air transport and maintenance, repair and
overhaul from our new bureau in Brussels. Buyck comes to Aviation Week from
the Centre for Aviation, where she was senior analyst for Europe. Prior to
that role, she was Air Transport World's European Editor/Bureau Chief, leading
ATW's Europe, Middle East and African coverage for the magazine and the daily
online news. Buyck won the 2010/11 European Regions Airline Association's Hank
McGonagle Journalism Award for her writing on the inclusion of aviation in the
European Union's Emissions Trading system. She served for numerous years as
president of the Aviation Press Club in Belgium.

"We are pleased to welcome Tony and Cathy to their new roles at Aviation
Week," said Aviation Week & Space Technology Editor-in-Chief Joseph C.
Anselmo. "They are great additions to our team and will greatly reinforce our
global and online presence. This decision to move management of the commercial
team from the U.S. to Europe and put it under the seasoned guidance of Jens
Flottau reflects Aviation Week's commitment to providing a more global
perspective in our coverage."
