Tropic Air unveiled a new look for its planes today, with an eye toward aesthetics and economy.
“We’ve tried hard to retain the essential elements of Tropic’s almost forty years of service and refine them for the future,” said CEO Steve Schulte in a press release. “We’ve adapted the ‘tail fin’ to make it bolder and to reflect a simpler and more elegant shape.”
The look will also save time and expense when repainting the planes, according to the press release: “The painting process has been simplified, using fewer maskings and less paint for a drastic reduction in materials used. The new paint is also more durable so aircraft will require re-painting less often. The iconic, Tropic logo, that appears on all aircraft, has been rejuvenated with a subtle makeover and detailing.”
Tropic Air also announced that the $10 million maintenance and administration structure under construction in San Pedro will officially open in August.
