Editorial Policy

Rotor Review (ISSN: 1085-9683) is published quarterly by the Naval Helicopter Association, Inc. and is intended to support the goals of the Association, provide a forum for discussion and exchange of information on topics of interest to the naval helicopter community, and keep membership informed of NHA activities. As necessary, the President of NHA will provide guidance to the Rotor Review Editorial Board to ensure that Rotor Review content continues to support this statement of policy as the Naval Helicopter Association adjusts to the expanding helicopter community.

Articles should be of general interest to the readership and geared toward current Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard affairs, technical advances in the helicopter industry or historical anecdotes. Humor is acceptable...and encouraged.
