The Air Current

The Air Current (TAC) is a subscription-based news and information service for the global aerospace and aviation industry. Our value proposition is based on both depth and exclusivity. Our focus is on reporting actionable, newsworthy intelligence and digging deeper into global strategic trends and their broader implications for global aviation and aerospace. TAC actively leverages deep relationships and extensive industry knowledge to provide a greater level of insight into the business of flying. TAC doesn’t seek to replicate or follow the reporting of other organizations nor does it aim to be a repository for the day’s news.
