About Us

Vayu Aerospace and Defence Review, the bi-monthly aviation and defence magazine from New Delhi is now in its 50th year and is India oldest trade publication. Vayu is extremely well respected both domestically and internationally in aviation and defence circles both in India and abroad. We have a large panel of professionals, analysts and an Editorial Team from all fields of the defence spectrum who regularly contribute to the publication. We also regularly participate at all major air and defence shows world over. Besides publishing activities including books on aerospace matters, we also organise many seminars and conferences on the aviation and defence industry every year.

We also publish and bring out Show Directory's and Show Dailies and have done so officially for the first three Air Shows in India- Avia India 1993 and Aero India 97, 99 in Bangalore, and at the first few shows, brought out HAL's and SIATI's Show Dailies as well as ours. Since Defexpo beginning 2002 till today and Aero India since 1993 onwards, we have been bringing out the most widely read and distributed Show Dailies without any break!

VAYU has also been nominated for a total of 19 times (and 11 years in a row) at the "Aviation Journalist and Publication of the Year Awards" organised by the Royal Aeronautical Society (held in London and Paris in alternate years) and the magazine has won numerous awards- the only magazine to be consistently nominated and winning awards from the region and Asia.

Further, from 2019 up to 2023, Vayu was nominated (and won yet again!) for various awards in different categories (by the newly incorporated organisers Aerospace Media Dinner Awards) including the "Best Aerospace and Defence Publication", "Best Young Journalist", "Best Aviation Photographer" and "Lifetime Achievement Award" from India (and again the only one from Asia) at the Paris and Farnborough Airshows!!

We are extremely proud of our in-house team and contributors!!
