GA Aircraft In Airline Liveries?

Thu Oct 26, 2006 2:01 pm

Hello all,

I was wondering if anybody in the a.net community can share photos of general aviation aircraft painted up in the liveries of commercial carriers. For example, TK has applied its colors to a small fleet of training aircraft belonging to the Turkish Airlines Flight Academy (below). I believe that OA had similar Cessna airplanes painted in Olympic colors, though I couldn't find the photos. Are there others, either belonging to the airlines or an affiliated training center, or professional flying clubs, et cetera? I'm hoping for something more vibrant than the TK example: eurowhite doesn't look any better on a puddle jumper than it does on heavy metal--but the tulip does looks sharp! I'd be interested to see some well-known liveries applied to the small GA airplanes, somehow it just fascinates me.

Have a look at this thread:
Little Planes In Large Carrier Liveries (by Birdwatching Mar 22 2006 in Civil Aviation)

Loads on there!

Thanks! The earlier thread started by Birdwatching is great--some really cool airplanes (among other things) from around the world. Sorry I didn't find it before I posted mine.

I believe the Lear 35 is the aircraft that Skyservice began it's air charter services with. I'll check with Russ Payson and get back on this.

Continental Air Lines used to have a Rockwell Saberliner as a corporate aircraft painted like a line aircraft complete with gold tail and meatball. At one time there was a pic of it on airliners.net

Would it be possible for a person with no relation to the airline to get permission to use the livery on thier personal plane?
