Sherwin-Williams found the best-of-the-best, from business jets, general aviation and helicopters, with both classic and custom-painted designs, to feature in its 2019 Aerospace Coatings Calendar. The calendar recognizes the outstanding work of aircraft painters across the country that rely on Sherwin-Williams Aerospace topcoats in their MRO and OEM facilities.
“With all the submissions it was extremely difficult to narrow it down to only twelve,” says Julie Voisin, Sherwin-Williams Global Product Manager for Aerospace Coatings. “We were blown away with the quality and variety of the submissions we received, from kit planes to military aircraft to large, multi-million dollar jets.”
The 2019 Aerospace Coatings Calendar features projects from the following companies:
• Dumount Group – Gulfstream IV

The calendar showcases designs with bold colors, overall metallic and pearls, military camouflage and classic overall white styles with sleek striping. The Sherwin-Williams aerospace topcoats featured in the designs vary from single stage (monocoat) systems such as Jet Glo, Acry Glo and Jet Glo Express and basecoat-clearcoat systems such as SKYscapes and SKYscapes General Aviation.
“We wanted to do something that recognized the craftsman in our industry,” says Voisin. “It is truly amazing the design quality and what the painters are able to accomplish. We are very excited to release our calendar, and looking forward to the aviation industry enjoying these works of art.”
