Aviation Reporter - Flightglobal - Remote/Home based


Working at FlightGlobal is dynamic, exciting and not without its share of challenges. We have a can-do culture and, having doubled in size in the last three years, it’s a fast moving business with big ambitions. You need to be solutions orientated with a positive approach to life and work.
We’ve been pioneering aviation insight for over 100 years, providing essential access to the aviation market, insight, data and news. Our extensive range of sponsorship, marketing and advertising solutions connect clients to global aviation professionals across on and offline channels and face-to-face events.  Flightglobal is a Reed Business Information company.


Flightglobal’s Americas bureau is hiring a reporter to cover the aerospace industry, focusing on military aviation programs in development, production and in service. This reporter will provide daily coverage for the web site, craft enterprise and investigative features for the magazine and participate in our multimedia coverage of major industry events worldwide.


The position requires a candidate that can work independently and as part of a team, while balancing urgent and sometimes over-lapping deadlines. Regular travel, including to events outside the USA, is required. Previous experience with journalism and aviation or military topics is highly desired.


The ideal candidate will be a quick-learner on the intricacies of military aircraft, including their propulsion, sensors and weapons. Although the position can be based anywhere in the USA, the reporter must be able to keep track of the budget and acquisition decisions made in Washington DC. At the same time, the reporter must keep an eye on developments in industry and military laboratories, always looking for innovative new technologies and programs for story leads.  


The position will report to and collaborate closely with the Americas Managing Editor. As a London-based publication, the reporter must quickly adjust to British journalism writing style and Flightglobal’s house style for aviation terms. Aviation is a global industry, so it will be necessary to work closely with colleagues in London, Singapore and elsewhere.


Core Responsibilities:


Exclusive and timely news relevant to the FlightGlobal audience

Developing and executing features relevant to the FlightGlobal audience

Participating in coverage of major events worldwide, such as air shows and conventions


Required Functional & Technical Qualifications:


At least 3-5 years of experience with reporting on deadline, preferably about aviation or military issues

Fluency with social media as a reporting and publishing tool

Experience working with the leaders of government agencies and large corporations
