Meet Craig Barnett
Craig Barnett grew up in aviation – literally. He was roaming the southern African skies in his father’s Bonanza from before he could walk. He grew up in the back of his father’s Piper Aztec.
As a child, Craig helped his father restore a World War II Spitfire IX to flying condition in the 1970s. As a teen, Craig’s first plane was a 1964 Cessna 150E that he and his father rebuilt. Craig earned his pilot’s license at 17 and flew his Cessna 150E throughout southern Africa.
Craig is a Civil Engineer, artist and commercial pilot with instrument and multi-ratings, and has flown close to 100 different aircraft types.
Craig’s unique background in aviation, engineering, art and business come together as the perfect background to lead Scheme Designers, the world leader in aircraft paint schemes and vinyl designs. Craig leads his dedicated team of five full time designers to embrace higher standards of art, technology and customer service.
