Over the course of 40 years as a full-time aviation magazine editor, Nigel Moll has written countless articles and taken tens of thousands of photographs for three publications - Flight International (1973-1979); FLYING Magazine (1979-1995); and Aviation International News (since 1995). He has also written/photographed four aviation books, including the award-winning Reno: Air Racing Unlimited and Confederate Air Force: Past Perfect. Passionate about aircraft since he was a child, Nigel earned his glider pilot certificate at age 16 and his private pilot certificate a year later (six years before getting a driver license). Nigel has flown 150 types of aircraft, and his ratings include instrument, multiengine, helicopter, seaplane and glider. Among his logbook entries are flights in a two-seat Supermarine Spitfire, the left seat of the British Airways Concorde simulator (and seven cockpit jumpseat rides in the real thing before it was retired), a catapult shot off the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln in the back seat of an F/A-18, and a fling in one of the first Russian Sukhoi Su-26 single-seat competition aerobatic aircraft imported into the U.S. Nigel also built and flew a Kitfox two-seat sport airplane. No longer holding an FAA medical, Nigel has turned his attention to driving, photographing and reviewing high-end cars for sister publication Business Jet Traveler (ranging from the diminutive Lotus Exige to Bentleys and Ferraris and the $2 million, 1,001-horsepower Bugatti Veyron) when he can take time away from his duties at Aviation International News. With the full-time role of planning and overseeing the creation of each issue, Nigel strives to keep AIN Monthly relevant as the most topical, accurate and readable way for business-aviation professionals to stay current in a world of constant change.
