MIAMI, Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gearing up for a second decade of aviation coverage, Airchive.com has tapped industry veteran reporter Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren as co-editor-in-chief. Dwyer-Lindgren, who was most recently on the senior staff of NYCAviation, takes the wheel of the 10-year-old website, blog and online aviation museum on September 3, reporting directly to founder/president Chris Sloan.
"After reaching this important milestone with Airchive.com, I could not imagine a more fitting and qualified candidate to expand on my vision for the site, and lead us into our next 10 years, than Jeremy," said Sloan, in making the announcement. "His coverage of our industry is spot on—loaded with that perfect combo of insight and historical background synonymous with the Airchive.com brand."
Before joining Airchive.com, Dwyer-Lindgren spent three years with the aviation site NYCAviation, finishing as co-editor and chief correspondent.

Dwyer-Lindgren was responsible for managing the site's team of correspondents and handling its communications/public relations with industry stakeholders.
As an aviation reporter, he has flown aboard every type of currently airworthy US World War II bomber (17, 24, 25, 29). Dwyer-Lindgren is also a freelance photographer who has covered everything from vintage airplanes to Major League Baseball. His photos have appeared in magazines and websites around the world with recent credits including the Seattle Post Intelligencer, Getty Images and the Historic Flight Foundation.
