Bangalore Aviation is always on the lookout for writers focussed on aviation. We welcome co-authors who will commit to writing at least 2 or 3 articles per week for a long term (a year or more), or guest authors who would like to send in a story at their convenience or who would like to remain anonymous.
All contributors are welcome, as long as you write with an agenda-less passion, relying on truth and offering a straightforward analysis -- the hallmark's of Bangalore Aviation. Ideally submissions should be within 450~650 words. Any less will fail to enthuse readers. Much longer will bore them. Write an article, you would enjoy reading ............. as a reader.
