The 24/7 Web world is now being formally recognized by the nation's largest magazine association. And AOPA Pilot was there to receive an honorary click.
At the Magazine Publishers of America's (MPA's) inaugural Digital Awards, Pilot tied for second place for the "Best Web-only Tool" category. It competed against such heavy hitters as Wired, Sports Illustrated, Runner's World, and the first-place winner, Popular Science. Pilot was also the only aviation publication to be recognized in any of the categories.
Pilot was honored for its August 2006 special report, " The Top Technologies Influencing General Aviation." The interactive guide explores the latest in general aviation technology from GPS to enhanced vision systems.
"This special report was an all-out effort by our entire editorial and art staffs. We're pleased to be recognized by the publishing industry for the effort, and especially proud to be named among some of the largest publishers in the world," said AOPA Editor in Chief Tom Haines. "The Technology Report is just one example of our monthly quest to provide AOPA members with the very best content possible."
The MPA Digital Awards were devised to honor the excellence and innovation of magazine brands on digital platforms.
