George those paints are incredible.

The Autism awareness jet is beautiful - Having a 6 year old with the condition makes it especially moving.

Just wondering how you go about creating the schedules for what looks like quite a large airline - I would think that would take some planning.

This whole concept has really got me intrigued.

Sometimes when I'm seeing news on separatist countries who are unrecognised, because I am crazy and always thinking on planes, I start to think, "if these countries becomes official, what will their airlines looks like?" And then because I am even more crazy, I decide to paint this. ;D

So before I know, I'm end up making liveries for such nations as Transnistria, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and the SADR. Of course without flightplans, this is just for show.

PS, I don't mean any political opinions with these paints, only curiosity, because I love exotic liveries. ;)
Where's Krakozia!? :heehee:

Yeah. But.. A320's?
I mean entirely fictional liveries should have a maddening number of old or not-so-used aircraft to fill the gaps.
Dc9's, Md80's, Dornier's, Avro's, Let's, Tupolev's, Dc8's, the whole drill.
Maybe even one of the new Atr's might be welcome. ;)

Only if you would want to have something that looks totally unrealistic and implausible in real life. I haven't seen many startup operations in the US using that mix of aircraft.
However, Virgin America is using the A320 family. Skybus (RIP) used Airbus A319's with a poor business model. I could just as easily gone with the Boeing 737 family but wanted something different.
My goal was to create something that was somewhat realistic, even though I knew it wasn't a real airline.

I finally got ACM working again, so I thought I would give it a shot.  I plan on finishing the Big 12 Conference jets this weekend, plus some others.  Any tips/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
