As a former air traffic controller, I’ve always fascinated by the beautiful moment when air lifts a plane up to sky. The Aircraft Takeoff Visualization Project, taking B737-800 as example, focuses on the transformation of various metrics on aircraft takeoff performance, which includes Lift, Takeoff Length, Load Capacity, Air Density, Altitude and Temperature. I collected meteorological data for 12 cities around the globe as of May 2017, and calculated the 6 aforementioned metrics. The cities were selected for their diverse altitudes.
After the previous steps, I came to the idea of designing a branding for a hypothetical airline: Yunnan Airlines. I chose Yunnan as Yunnan Province, whose capital city Kunming was studied in previous step, is one of my favorite places in China.
