2 MD-11 aircraft in Freeland National Airways and Yeetair livery


2 MD-11 aircraft in Freeland National Airways and Yeetair livery

These 2 MD-11’s showcase the original 2 liveries of Freeland Airlines and Yeetair in the mid 1900’s.

Freeland Airlines (then known as Freeland National Airways or FNA), adopted this livery in 1962, as a new look entering the jet age, and painted it on all their aircraft. The bright colors not only represented the Flag of Freeland, but also gave the airline a kind attitude. They stuck with the livery for a long time until 1988, when they changed it in a corporate rebrand to regain the people’s trust in the airline amid a huge accident.

Yeetair, despite entering the jet age at the same time as FNA and the other airlines, kept their old livery until 1966, when they changed it to show that they were modernizing. The livery, albeit a simple one, was easily recognizable because of its abstraction. The livery, unbeknownst to people, was like that as it was cheap and easy to make, but still not like other airlines. They stuck with the livery until 1990, during a change in leadership.

Let me know what you think!



    Pro tip: use Medaviations templates for your liveries. Noreebos are kinda s***

    Which program are you referring to?
    I use Ibis Paint X for IPhone to make my liveries.

    Photoshop, preferably. Photopea and GIMP are two free alternatives that function just as well. These do require computers, though.

    However these will make your liveries better looking. If you want to go further you can try Airplano21s templates.

    Oh ok.
    You got any more tips or ways to make the current livery better?
    I am very new to this kind of stuff
    Also I just suck at drawing

    Thats okay! We all start from somewhere.

    Experiment with paths and dynamic shapes. Make a background for your liveries. Work on the little details like registration and colors. I would recommend taking a look at what users like airplano21 and GJ do to see what kind of quality this site likes.

    Dont be afraid to experiment, either. Again, we all start from somewhere and there is always room to improve.

    Thanks man.

    Adding on to what Crossfire has said, I have a couple more tips that might help further enhance your liveries.

    Firstly, it would be wise to add in a registration. If you ever plan to make liveries from real nations, there is a whole Wikipedia article about registration prefixes from every country in the world. As for this, I'm assuming this is from a fictional nation, which means you might need to make up your own, which shouldn't be hard to do (just a random jumble of letters/numbers, really).

    As well as this, warping the fuselage titles to match the curvature of the fuselage would also help your liveries look a bit more "real". I'm not familiar with Ibis Paint, but if there is a function to "flatten" the titles (reduce their vertical height), I'd recommend doing that. Alternatively, you can access Photopea on mobile devices, so that is also an option to use.

    Keep it up, hope this helps!

    Idk if Ibis has a flatten feature but I’ll try and see.

    Thanks for the tips
