July 16, 2015 – In Anticipation of EAA AirVenture, Oshkosh, Wis. Earlier this year, Quest Aircraft Company (AirVenture Main Aircraft Display #263-264) rolled out a new, interactive, three-dimensional online paint selection tool to assist customers in selecting paint schemes and color combinations. The new tool also allows users to specify custom registration numbers as well as optional exterior styling. Users can also view the Quest color pallet to look at color combinations before selecting the final colors for their aircraft. In addition, they can select and view what their aircraft would look like with optional equipment such as amphibious floats and a cargo pod.
Quest Aircraft began working with Scheme Designers (AirVenture booth #3056 in Hangar C) late last year to develop the highly detailed, multi-dimensional selection and configuration tool. Quest has relied on Scheme Designers to develop their unique, factory standard paint schemes, and with KODIAK buyers worldwide seeking a custom paint scheme, since the aircraft’s development.
“This paint configurator tool is very accurate,” said Steve Zinda, Quest’s Vice President of Sales for Europe, Middle East, China and Africa. “Most web-based configurators are more general and almost generic. We wanted our customers to have a more personal relationship to their aircraft, so they see it exactly as it will be when they take delivery. This tool also lets them select options, such as amphibious floats or the external cargo compartment, so they can see how their aircraft will look with those options and the selected paint scheme.”
The Quest configurator takes the iconic KODIAK paint design, and allows the customer to select from six factory standard colors and forty optional colors. They can then also further customize “their aircraft” by including a tail treatment and specifying pinstripe colors and logos.

“Quest is such a fantastic manufacturer to work with, both as a partner and as a client. The whole team is dedicated to helping the customer make choices about their aircraft that will delight and lead to their long-term pride and satisfaction with their KODIAK,” said Craig Barnett, President of Scheme Designers. “This unique tool will certainly set the Quest KODIAK apart and engage existing Quest customers and airplane aficionados at a whole new level in general aviation.”
The Quest KODIAK Paint Selector is on display at the Scheme Designers booth #3056 at AirVenture in Hangar C.
