The rumor mill keeps spinning and where it stops... no wait, there are some updates regarding the rumored flyer supplement for 40k. The cover as seen below appears to be fairly legit but until there is an official confirmation it is best to take the rumors with a grain of salt. The more pertinent question, based on the supposed contents of the book, is do we really need this? If we are not getting any new flyers, and by that I mean for codecies which currently do not have them (Eldar, Tau, etc.), then will this really be worth it? Forgeworld released a book dedicated to flyers not too long ago. Having a similar book for the non-FW models seems more like an attempt to cash in on the major role flyers now play in 40k rather than providing something the game could use like getting the older codecies updated. Read on below and then let us know what you think!

Some more light is being shed on the impending release of this supplement:
My sources say this will be a 70 page "compendium".
It will have updated 6th edition rules for flyers:
Stormraven (now available to space marines and BT)
Ork Bomba / dakka jet / burna bomba
Valkyrie / vendetta
Razorwing & Voide Raven
Night Scythe / doom scythe
also dog fighting rules from crusade of fire and a new flyers scenario.
I'm told this book will be a range item and not a limited release.
There is also the following tidbit regarding the release below:
