The Cutaways are a globally recognized product and benchmark for detail and accuracy.

According to Nielsen Media Research, Flight Daily News had the biggest share of all the advertising placed in show dailies at Paris Air Show 2005 and Farnborough 2006.

Flight Daily News' sister publication is the Flight Evening News. Launched at the 2004 NBAA convention in Las Vegas, a new concept in air show daily newspapers was born. Traditionally, show dailies have appeared in the morning, covering the happenings of the previous day. Flight Evening News re-invented the concept, publishing instead on the same day. National Business Aviation Association or NBAA, is a non-profit and nonpartisan 501(c)6 corporation based in Washington, DC. The Association has existed for over 55 years and as of this writing, represents more than 7,000 companies. ...

Journalists cover stories from press conferences, the exhibition floor and static display throughout the morning. The newspaper is designed and printed in a matter of hours, and handed delagates leaving the show late that afternoon. Flight Evening News is the only daily publication to follow this format, and it markets the information it provides as "today's news today".

Flight Evening News can be found at NBAA, as well as its European equivalent, EBACE.
