Managing Editor, Leeham News and Analysis
Scott Hamilton is the managing editor of Leeham News and Analysis. Having spent more than three decades in the aviation news industry, he was named Best Aerospace Journalist of the Year in 2009 in the Regional Airline Category and served on the Board of Directors for Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance from 2010 to 2013.
Before creating LNA, Hamilton co-founded Linkraven Ltd. in 1989. Linkraven published the internationally distributed Commercial Aviation Report and Commercial Aviation Value Report; and organized conferences in Asia, Europe and the Americas under the Commercial Aviation Events banner. During the 10 years Hamilton and his partner owned and operated Linkraven, their publications and events became internationally recognized for their breaking news reporting and high-quality conferences. The influential publications regularly beat larger and more established magazines and newspapers with news and analysis about the airline industry.
Hamilton is known for his straight-shooting, call-it-like-it-is take on news and events and applies his decades of industry experience to offer perspective and analysis. Broadcast and print media frequently call him for expert analysis about the issues of the day. LNA regularly breaks international news that wire services and other media pick up.
As a regular speaker and moderator at aviation conferences and corporate events, Hamilton has recently teamed up with Airfinance Journal to produce another series of conferences that bring his stimulating, conversational and interactive format back to the industry.
