'FLIGHT HISTORY' Print Magazine Using Only Historical Images - No Modern Images

This Kickstarter campaign is for the 'premier issue' of Vintage Aviation... your support will help launch this all new high-quality print magazine. $15 gets you the premier issue and some stickers added in.  If we are successful getting this first issue launched, we plan to be back in January with another Kickstarter campaign to find backers for a four-issue subscription for the year 2020. The four-issue subscription rate will be in the $48 range, making each issue only $12. PLEASE NOTE: this current campaign is only for the single premier issue of Vintage Aviation. 

I'm Martt Clupper and Vintage Aviation is a print magazine project that mixes my life-long passion for aviation with my genuine belief that 'print is not dead'. While communication has changed a lot in the last 25 years, print has shown that it will indeed be around for the long haul.

I've also learned through the years that the fantastic world of aviation has many enthusiastic followers that aren't pilots, and may not be actively involved with aircraft or flying in any direct way... but their interest and fascination is strong and true.

Vintage Aviation aims to bring flight history education and entertainment to anyone who has active interest in the first 60 years of aviation. By looking at the span between the years 1900 and 1960, V/A will be tapping into a never-ending collection of stories, events, and people who dreamed, engineered, constructed and flew humanity into the sky. V/A will also have little or maybe even no advertising... a great reader experience is the goal!  

My interest is in all aspects of aviation history, so the magazine will look in-depth at all facets of the world of flight, and will also journey into design and engineering, as well as construction and manufacturing. I believe the best future we can build for aviation is one where we know as much as we can about the past, and use it to shape our future. 

This campaign is for the single, premier issue of Vintage Aviation, but if this succeeds, I plan to move forward with the attempt to produce four issues of the magazine in 2020, with the goal of eventually becoming a monthly magazine.

But your help is needed to get over the first hurdle... 

I've pulled together several items, in addition to the actual premier issue of Vintage Aviation as rewards... the stickers and magnets are a great way to not only show support for the magazine, but those words also show that you love the old world of flying machines. And the leather patch hat is both retro and very today all in one.

The T-Shirts with the V/A logo also give you the perfect opportunity to show your support of the magazine, and aviation history all at once... and then, I'm especially pleased with the mechanic shirt which has both a V/A logo, and the name of your choice embroidered above the right pocket.

Of course  'Angels of Support' are wonderful, so I've provided a couple opportunities in case some of you have the means, and are really interested in supporting the effort to get this magazine off the ground so it can have a positive impact on younger generations. The world of aviation has an incredibly rich history, and V/A seeks to be an effective tool in reaching the younger generations.  

Risks and challenges

I believe there is an audience out there for this magazine, but the challenge is in connecting with them. I have various methods I am using to promote my effort, and hopefully they will drive enough interested people to the campaign, and hopefully they like what they see.
