Key Publishing is a magazine publishing company specialising in aviation titles, based in Stamford, Lincolnshire, England.
Airliner World was launched in 1999. In 2005 it launched Airports of the World, and in the same year it bought PC Pilot (originally launched in 1999), the world's best selling flight simulation magazine.
In October 2009, Key Publishing bought Spain's leading aviation magazine Avion Revue, and its Latin American (Mexico and Argentina) editions, formerly owned by Motor Presse - Ibérica (a division of Europe's largest publishing firm - Gruner + Jahr). This magazine, along with Avion & Piloto, is published by Key Publishing Spain.
In March 2010, it bought the title Aviation News. Aviation News is Britain's longest established monthly aviation journal. Airfix Model World launched on 4 November 2010, in partnership with Airfix.
In March 2012, Key Publishing acquired several magazines previously published by Ian Allan Publishing. Titles included Modern Railways, Railways Illustrated, Vintage Roadscene, Hornby Magazine, Combat Aircraft, Classic Aircraft, and Buses.
As well as its core titles, it produces one-off titles for organisations such as the Royal Air Force. It produces the directories for the Society of British Aircraft Companies and the British Aviation Group. It produces the souvenir programme for the Farnborough Airshow.
