This font was designed to simulate the lettering on the hull of the U.S.S. Enterprise from the 1960’s TV show Star Trek. It is more closely related to lettering seen on the hulls of ocean-going ships than to that found on aircraft.

This is the latest version of Airborne, a font I created for hull lettering on TOS-era ships. This version includes several minor corrections, such as shortening the “hooks” on the C and easing back the diagonal stroke on the 7. The four variations currently available are:

  • Airborne, the original font based on the decals on the Enterprise
  • Airborne Pilot, which has alternate versions of some characters, for use on Pike-era ships
  • Airborne II, slightly narrower and lighter in weight than Airborne
  • Airborne II Pilot, the Pike-era version of Airborne II

All of the fonts contain full Cyrillic, Greek and Hebrew alphabets, as well as dozens of diacritcs and other special symbols. (Charles Casimiro)
