January is our second-annual, Annual Reports issue, featuring detailed company profiles. In this issue, we provide a writer and the space for our advertisers to communicate to our readers about what is new or interesting within their company. James Careless has been surveying these companies extensively over the past weeks to prepare this unique special report, which will be bound into the center of the issue. A new feature of our Annual Reports issue for 2005 will be the Executive Outlook, in which we survey the President and CEO's of these companies individually to get a feel for what they see on the horizon for the coming year. Anyone who makes a living in the helicopter market will want to review this special report to learn more about the vendors and suppliers who keep this market turning.

Helicopter Airframe Performance and Perception Survey Results - Every 18-24 months for the past decade and a half, we have been commissioning an in-depth survey of what helicopter operators think about the airframes they operate and the companies behind those machines. And now, it is time again to see the results. A very interesting look at who is on top of their game and who is struggling to keep their customers and potential customers happy.
Plus, we bring you our usual look at What to Expect at Heli-Expo, and our regular columns, PacRim, EMS Notebook and Military Spin.
