About us

The goal of Airpressman is to present articles, news, images and information about the diverse world of aviation; both civil and military. The articles are extensive and contain a lot of technical information – we like to be thorough – therefore indicated for our readers who are most eager for details. For those who like aeronautical photography, our chronicles are extensively illustrated, meanwhile we will frequently publish exhibitions of images of the aircraft highlighted in the notes, in our Image Galleries.

We began our task in South America, however, we plan to expand and spread our wings to other corners of the region and the world. Therefore – please – return frequently to visit our site!
