Editor’s Note: “Taking Off in Public” is a new digital series written by Craig Fuller, the new owner of Flying magazine. In this series, Fuller will provide insight into his plans for Flying and a first-hand look at how Flying is being built for the next generation.

Starting a new company is like starting a new relationship, except unlike a relationship, you can’t ghost the business when things get tough. While Flying has been around for almost 100 years, the business is new to me and I have lots of dreams regarding its potential.

The thing I have learned through starting various ventures is how important the team is to being successful. In fact, in a media business, the content team is 100 percent of the success.

We are starting to add members to the Flying team. In the past week, we have added:

  • A head of social media
  • Two new editors
  • A head of product
  • An account executive
  • A journalist to cover pilot education and training

We’re now looking to fill four new roles in editorial, including journalists to cover:

  • Aviation news
  • Military aviation
  • Business-to-business news
  • Corporate aviation

A pilot for more than three decades, Craig Fuller is owner and CEO of FLYING parent company Firecrown Media.
