I picture it being something similar to the cover of "Catch-22." I don't want photographs or cartoons, but something in between. I would like an image of a training aircraft included. Piper Warriors are the type of plane used most prominently in the book, but Piper Cherokees, Arrows and Cessna 172's and 152's are also mentioned in the book. I included some images below of what these planes look like. The planes in the book are old and in poor condition. An image of a flight instructor can also be used, an example is included below. Flight instructors wear a uniform similar to an airline pilot but without the hat and jacket. Also, a learn to fly here sign can be included too, an example is below. Most flight schools have this sign. It doesn't have to have all of these items, it could be just one, or two, but could have all of them if you think it looks good. The book is a humorous mockery of aviation, and is dark at times, think like Airplane the movie, or It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia set in aviation, so the cover can reflect the humor side of it. I don't want it to look too serious, but not cartoonish either. The paperback dimentions are 5.25x8 and I will be publishing with KDP. I don't have the exact spine width yet but will provide it as soon as i get it.
Lo que debe evitarse
no shiny clean looking planes or anything that glamorizes aviation
