FACT OF THE DAY:

Some Pilots Are Using Their Flight Paths to Draw in the SkyUsing a flight tracking program called CloudAhoy, pilots around the country have been drawing some intricate designs in the sky for a contest to see who can most effectively merge their skills in the air with their creative flair.

The contest, called the Wild Blue Doodle and put on by aviation company Lightspeed, challenged pilots to “create a work of art in the sky” with their flight paths, as tracked by the software, for a chance to win a new headset (worth $850). Pilots around the country took advantage of the chance to show off. The large-scale designs include a sneaker, Snoopy in his “World War I Flying Ace” guise, a howling wolf, and even a self-portrait of sorts—one pilot flew his DA40 plane in the shape of a DA40.  Creating these images took some careful planning. Brian Danza, the pilot of the DA40, told Flying magazine that he used Photoshop to create the outline of the plane, then traced that outline in Google Maps to get the coordinates of all the turns he’d need to make after taking off from Leesburg, Virginia. He then uploaded those coordinates to his aircraft’s GPS system, which guided him through the 80-mile-wide image.

After judges pick the top 10, based on artistry and challenge, other users of the software will then vote to see who gets that high-end headset, or one of the fancy leather flight bags for second and third place.

This howling wolf flight path took just over two hours to fly.    Snoopy, piloting his doghouse.
