ABS Air Safety Foundation A36 Paint Design Contest

Late in 2016 we announced an ASF A36 Paint Design Contest to our members. We provided a downloadable line drawing of a 1981-vintage A36 (we also printed it in ABS Magazine) and invited members and their families to submit designs. From these suggestions a panel will select a design; Scheme Designers generously volunteered to fine-tune the design to our specifications and digitize it so a paint shop can lay it out on the airplane.

The member or members who submitted the selected design will be honored in ABS Magazine, have their picture taken with the airplane at the 2017 ABS Convention in Wichita, and be recognized by a placard in the airplane itself.

We've received many good ideas, and we may choose features from more than one for the final paint scheme--recognizing those members from whom we took inspiration. Below you'll find three pdfs covering the 31 entries we received. Thank you to everyone who submitted paint designs for the ABS Air Safety Foundation A36.
