12/13/2011 - KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. (AFNS) -- Wingman, the Air Force's official quarterly safety magazine, has a new digital home. Readers can find the current and all future issues of Wingman at www.wingmanmagazine.af.mil.
Due to a Department of Defense initiative for organizations to find greater efficiencies, Air Force Safety Center officials transitioned to the online-only format.
The Air Force Safety Center published its last hardcopy issue of Wingman in fall 2011 and launched a new website Dec. 12 for its award-winning magazine.
"While times are changing and funds are short, we'll never shortchange you - our readers," Maj. Gen. Greg Feest, the Air Force chief of safety, said in the fall issue. "You'll get the same quality of safety information delivered to you online."
With a click of a button, readers can view either an electronic publication, which allows them to turn the pages of the magazines digitally, or download a PDF version, officials said. A Quick Response barcode allows readers to access the Air Force Safety Center's public website www.afsc.af.mil using their smart phones to find the latest safety news.
"Transitioning to a web-based magazine will give us more flexibility with the content, layout and design," said Roberto Guerrero, the Air Force deputy chief of safety. "We're excited about the possibilities."
The Air Force's quarterly journal of aviation, ground, space and weapons safety has been in circulation since 2008 with the merger of Flying Safety Magazine, Weapons Journal and Road and Rec into one magazine. Air Force safety has been producing safety publications for more than 60 years.
