The new edition features a distinctive combination of the most elaborate and classic aircraft paint schemes.
Sherwin-Williams has presented the winners of the 2023 edition of the Aerospace Coatings calendar, which features a distinctive combination of the most elaborate and classic aircraft paint schemes produced in North America in the past year.
The annual programme recognises the exceptional creative craftsmanship of aircraft painters and designers that rely on Sherwin-Williams aerospace coatings in their maintenance, repair and overhaul and original equipment manufacturer facilities.
“This year we saw a record number of submissions – 40% more than last year. No doubt this year’s calendar demonstrates one of the most inspiring collections of aircraft paint schemes, and we are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2023 Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings calendar contest,” has declared Julie Voisin, the segment manager for Sherwin-Williams. “We are honoured by the market’s increased response to our annual platform and the pride so many aircraft painters take in their work. The vision and use of colour in the winning submissions truly showcase how art can fill the sky.”
The 2023 Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings calendar
cover features a Gulfstream G550 designed and painted by West Star Aviation in a split base black and silver with distinct gold metallic stripes down the centre – just one of the dozens visually arresting paint schemes showcased in the annual collection.
The oversized wall calendar showcases Sherwin-Williams aerospace topcoats featured in designs that vary from single-stage systems such as JetGlo®, AcryGlo® and JetGlo Express™ and basecoat-clearcoat systems
such as SKYscapes® and SKYscapes® General Aviation.
“In addition to several of our previously featured MRO customers, there are a number of new shops that were selected. The designs chosen for 2023 represent all sizes and types of aircraft, as well as paint shops from all over the country,” has concluded Voisin.
