The RenegadeAV8R and Flying For Liberty
We have been trying to correct the confusion for some time now. As our social media grows, our radio show becomes more popular and our participation in airshows becomes more routine, I felt it was time to do some explaining. I hope this will clear up any questions.
We ARE RenegadeAV8R. Flying for Liberty is the old, “US”. You will see the old logo and branding from time to time on old photos, blog posts, etc. Our Race 707, the L-29 that raced several seasons at the National Championship Air Races, Reno, NV had our “Flying For Liberty” branding. We only recently removed “Flying For Liberty” from our really cool…if we don’t say so ourselves….”Skull Logo”. Look below to see how our logo has changed over the years with the last one being our current logo!
So there you have our branding progression. When we started out as “Flying For Liberty” our whole premise was to promote liberty at our events, air racing and airshows. Not just the “political” aspect but our goal was to encourage anyone to live their life on their terms. Live life FREE, at full throttle. Believe it or not, we got push back from schools and other organizations over the “liberty” concept. God forbid we would want people to live their lives without someone else telling them how to do it!
One thing was certain. David Costa has always been a Renegade. He has always been “ethically” breaking rules or barriers and has encouraged others to do the same. You can search our website for more information about David Costa and his story, but for now, why the skull logo? Dave has been an avid motorcycle rider and the three rocker patch is designed to look like a Motorcycle Club Patch. Dave had is oldest daughter, Tatiana design the patch and it stuck! It fits us better, so we are going with it.
RenegadeAV8R is a bit in your face. A bit edgy and dedicated to the “club” mentality. If you love aviation or love airshows or want to get involved. Join our club. You are brothers and sisters in aviation with us. RenegadeAV8R is “In The Air and On Air”. We combine everything we do into the promotion of aviation, for sure, but more than that. We promote excellence, overcoming huge obstacles and achieving big, gnarly goals.
Well, now you know more than you ever wanted to know about our logos. Bear with us. We are working to change our social media to reflect our latest branding. We don’t have a massive staff, and dealing with some social media is more difficult than others. We have put quite a bit of time into our social media presence and are getting ready to push it into afterburner. So we want to do right by the social platforms and the fans we have.
This IS David Costa, I AM The RenegadeAV8R, See Ya!
