Keep reading to see the incredible work our team was able t accomplish!
When the owner of this Air Tractor approached us about a potential new paint job, we wanted to get started right away. The aircraft’s paint job was in pretty bad shape. The plane flew well, but the paint was chipped and had air pockets and extensive fading. The owner knew that they could trust Norfolk Aviation to give his aircraft a stylish new paint job, while protecting the plane itself against future erosion and rusting.
Once the design was finalized, it was time to get started. Our team stripped the aircraft down to bare metal and began blocking out the basis for the design. We stuck with the original color scheme, a navy blue on a nice, vivid yellow background, with black accents for a little more color variation. The design features long, thin lines which accentuate the shape of the aircraft.
Our team, and the owner were both very happy with the finished design! It looks clean, modern and incredibly eye-catching. Not to mention, the planes body is now more protected than it was in the past – with added protection against erosion and rusting due to use of the highest quality materials. The owner is beyond satisfied with the aircraft’s new paintjob and can’t wait to get back in the air!
Did you know that a new aircraft paintjob can make your 10-year-old plane look like a brand-new aircraft! Not to mention, if you’re considering selling your plane, a new paint job will not only increase the aircrafts value but promotes longevity due to its protective qualities. Our team is properly trained and led by experienced aircraft painters.
