Abstract

A color perception experiment was conducted to explore the color requirements of paratroopers for the interior decoration of transport cabin in military missions in order to determine the color design of transport aircraft. 392 male paratroopers in service were volunteered as subjects to choose their approved colors relative to their air-move missions on the basis of visual comparisons with two series of color palettes which are made by aerospace paint producer. The light series of color paint films were chosen for the cabin walls of structure, and the dark series was for the main controllers in the cabin, respectively. It was found that the light gray coded L002 and the monkey gray coded L004 got the top rank in the light color series of paint films while the concrete gray coded D001 was the top followed by the medium gray coded D008 in the dark color series to the exclusion of private color preference in daily life. The colors of paint film approved by paratroopers can be used for environment design of transport aircraft cabin.
