The Right Equipment

This issue is our annual Worldwide Directory, which includes 26 pages of GSE manufacturers and service providers, plus a product cross index that runs the alphabet from “Air Starts” to “Vehicle Lifts.”

While there’s more than 300 listings included in this issue, one of the best pieces of GSE is the magazine itself.

We recently polled our Ground Support Worldwide readers for their thoughts on the magazine.

Ground Support Worldwide beat out the next nearest trade magazine by almost a 3-1 margin when we asked which publication helps the most in understanding ground support responsibilities.

The survey will also help us publish the types of stories our readers want to see in future issues.

For example, the chart below ranks what topics readers consider the most important to their businesses. On a related note, here are the Top Five topics readers said they wanted to read more about in Ground Support Worldwide:

  • Ground Handling.
  • Technology.
  • Maintenance.
  • Best Practices.
  • Products.

We also recently ran these top votes by our Editorial Advisory Board for specific examples and left the meeting with some very good ideas.

As always, however, we certainly want to hear more from any reader who has any ideas on the matter. And these days, there’s no shortage of ways to get in touch:

• Phone: 920-563-1644.

• email:

• Twitter: @GroundSupportWW.

You can also find us on Facebook and LinkedIn.

Incidentally, our survey indicated that two-thirds of our readers are regular visitors to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Our LinkedIn group seems to be the most popular; over the past 12 months, our group has increased five-fold.

So park this piece of GSE close by to make your next buying decision. But remember that you can also always go to for even more information on companies and products dedicated to the aviation industry.
