Mick Oakey
Managing Editor mickoakey@theaviationhistorian.com(Please contact Mick for queries relating to subscriptions, advertising, marketing etc and to submit readers' letters) Between them, the founders of The Aviation Historian - Nick Stroud and Mick Oakey - amassed 39 years' experience on renowned historic-aviation monthly magazine Aeroplane before its sale to new owners in 2010. Mick Oakey - Managing Editor Mick Oakey The son of an RAF wing commander pilot and a former American Overseas Airways stewardess, Mick has been passionate about aviation since early childhood in the 1960s. In 1979 he became a Ministry of Defence Student Engineer at RAE Farnborough and Bedford, and embarked on an aero-engineering degree course at Imperial College, London; but his predilection for the history and romance of aeronautics led him in 1981 to change direction and become a junior curator at the Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon. Two years later he joined Aeroplane, and in 1998 he succeeded Richard T. Riding as Editor, a post he held until he retired in 2010, after 28 years on the magazine. He is a member of the Royal Aeronautical Society's Historical Group Committee, and in 2011 he received the Air League's prestigious Scott-Farnie Medal from HRH The Duke of Edinburgh for "most meritorious work in the field of air education" in recognition of his work on Aeroplane. On the odd occasions when he is not absorbed in aviation history, he is absorbed in Egyptology; he is a member of the Egypt Exploration Society and a founder member and committee member of Sussex Egyptology Society, a registered educational charity. Married to Mick, Lynn has had a career in financial services, working originally for Barclays Bank before moving into the sphere of life assurance. They have worked with Mick Oakey for 11 years, creating websites for Aeroplane magazine, Sussex Egyptology Society and now The Aviation Historian.

Why did the half-plane, half-helicopter not work? - BBC News

"The idea was ahead of its time," says Michael Oakey, managing editor of The Aviation Historian magazine.
"It was a good idea but and if modern materials, such as carbon fibre, had been around to make it lighter, it could have been a fantastic success," and less noisy, says Oakey. "The helicopter's remained a sort of short-haul equivalent of the executive jet," says Oakey.
