  • dreams;
  • determination;
  • the vast sky ahead, i.e. a great future;
  • freedom;
  • wanderlust.

The airplane is associated with a flying bird. The choice of freedom-loving people who do not tolerate the framework and principles of society. Any bird has always been considered a living embodiment of something unattainable and beautiful flight, so the idea of an airplane symbolizes that any dream today can be realized by human hands independently, the mind today prevails over the air.
