SHERWIN-WILLIAMS AEROSPACE COATINGS PAINTS NASCAR FAVORITE GREG BIFFLE’S FALCON 50
Recently Refurbished Dassault Paint Scheme Now Complements Racing Leader’s Extensive Air Livery
Andover, Kan. – One of the NASCAR circuits leading drivers, Greg Biffle, recently had his Dassault Falcon 50 refurbished and repainted using some of the latest systems available from Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings. The Falcon 50 is one of several aircraft in the ‘Air Biffle’ livery, based at the Statesville, NC airport, which also includes a Cessna 210 and a Bell 206 L3 helicopter.
In addition to flying around the race track at 200 mph, Biffle also puts in his time in the sky. He has a private pilot license for both single engine fixed wing and rotor wing aircraft, and annually flies about 175 hours on the Falcon 50, 75 hours on the Cessna and 100 hours on his helicopter. He is joined on his aviation team by one mechanic, two full time pilots and two contract pilots.
The recently completed overhaul and exterior repaint of the Falcon 50 was done by Capital Aviation, located in Oklahoma City. According to Scot Webber, Capital Aviation Executive Vice President, “We used a complete Sherwin-Williams aerospace coating system, which included a chrome hazard free primer, high solids epoxy surfacer, Fill Bond® filler, and several topcoat colors: Jet Glo® conventional Matterhorn, AcryGlo® acrylic urethane conventional gray, and its metallic colors Seminole red, black velvet, and Windfield bronze. It was all finished with the new SKYscapes® clearcoat.
The Falcon 50‟s new, multi-color paint job was created by Scheme Designers of Cresskill, N.J. Craig Barnett, its CEO, describes how their strategy was to create a look that was unique, beautiful and closely related to the entire family of aircraft. “In Greg Biffle‟s design, we took personalization to a new level by basing the design on the tail on Greg‟s initials. The approach, however, was to make the initials subtle enough so that many people looking at the tail would just see interesting design elements, as opposed to a big “GB” on the tail.”
Barnett adds, “This approach takes a step further on the right side of the tail, where the elements used to create Greg‟s initials are mirrored – in essence – backwards. In this way, the tail design has significant meaning to Greg Biffle, yet retains a degree of anonymity for him as he travels.”
