Paint It… Black?

Once, “Alpine White” was the only base color to paint an aircraft. And the only relief, and sign of personalization, was pin striping from nose to tail or perhaps a special N-number on the nacelle or vertical stabilizer.

Today, advances in chemistry and application techniques have improved paint’s protective characteristics and heat reflectivity, so you can exercise your creativity on virtually any exterior surface of your aircraft.
