THE ART OF AVIATION
This year’s badge began with the basic idea of introducing the pilot’s perspective of an airfield and present that to an audience that could both appreciate and interact with as if they themselves were the pilot. By collaborating with the artist of flysurreal.com the idea was taken to a completely new level pushing the boundaries of both art and science into a single badge.
The badge has something to offer for everyone. For the visually inclined the amazing and detailed artwork alone puts you into the pilot seat. For the aspiring pilot there is an interaction that will trigger an AIM 4-3-13 compliant response.
In a similar manner people can interact with the badge to trigger a pilot controlled lighting response in much the same way that the AIM 2-1-9 describes.
Fully aware of the current pop culture, there’s also some playful room for AIM 7-7-4.
