Cross Country magazine has had a facelift.

Issue 141, which is hitting doormats around the world now, has been substantially re-designed, to make it cleaner, clearer, and better than ever before.

The new layout is simpler, more elegant and much more readable. It’s also packed with everything about our favourite sport, including:

> The strongest photography in the sport
> The best in-depth How-To and learning articles
> Inspiring travel and adventure stories
> Exclusive profiles of top pilots
> Must-read columns by Bruce Goldsmith, Mads Syndergaard, Honza Rejmanek and other pilots
> Real-world reviews of harnesses and gliders
> News, new gear and what’s on

Specifically, issue 141 (May / June 2012) features:

> An in-depth article on the latest techniques in SIV
> An amazing tale of travel and adventure in Argentina by Felix Woelk
> A profile of Andy Campbell, who’s planning to circumnavigate the world
