“Sportsman Pilot was published for 30 years by aviation writer and editor Jack Cox. Cox and his wife, Golda, edited Sport Aviation, the flagship publication of the Experimental Aircraft Association, from 1969 through 1999. The Coxes launched their own publication, Sportsman Pilot, in 1981, in part so that Cox could devote more page space to the various historic and technical aspects of aircraft construction, restoration, and aviation history. Sportsman Pilot ceased publication after Cox’s death in 2011. ” – AOPA Website.
