Kounis, co-founder of Airventure Publishing and Publisher of Pilot Getaways . “Over the past five years, Pilot Getaways has expanded to cover destinations from coast to coast.

“Pilot Getaways readers will now receive the technical content typically covered by Northern Pilot , and Northern Pilot readers will now receive additional editorial content as well,” said Peter M.
