I have included several logos and images to spark ideas for a great looking logo.
We like different things about each one of these:
AOPA is an association for pilots and we like their two logos, but we think we like their Air Safety Insitute logo the better than their other.
We like how the "pilot" logo has an airplane cutout in the word pilot. This is actually a very simple logo, but honestly very cool too.
We like all of the variations of wings and/or eagles used in the logos.
I have also included some compass imagery as well as the compass gauges used in airplanes as I have wondered if a compass could be integrated into a design especially if the design was more like a "seal" like the "Federal Aviation Administration" or "AOPA Air Safety Institute" style.
And I have also included some images of airplane attitude or artificial horizon gauges that indicate whether the airplane is flying level.
Lastly, I have also included some airport leader boards with the flip digits.
We're open to your creativity and we'll be giving feedback every day in the hopes to get the perfect logo. You don't have to use any of the above if you have your own ideas.
