Our commitment to excellence has not gone unrecognized. In 2006, only four years after Vertical started publication, publishers Mike and Linda Reyno received Helicopter Association International's prestigious Excellence in Communications Award, given to the individual or organization achieving the most creative and distinct dissemination of information about the helicopter. Vertical was founded with the goal of providing the industry with an outstanding editorial product; the Excellence in Communications Award was confirmation that the magazine had achieved that goal in a remarkably short period of time.
In the years since, Vertical has only built on that legacy. Four of our contributing editors — Shawn Coyle, Elan Head, Guy Maher, and Ken Swartz — have also been recognized individually with HAI's Excellence in Communications Award. This is in addition to the countless awards that individual contributors have received for their achievements and positive impacts on the industry. At Vertical, we're focused on our readers, not awards, but we're proud each time that our magazine and contributors are recognized as outstanding.
