About Pan Spatial

Pan Spatial spawned in 1989, as a fictional brand I added to an illustration of a fictional aircraft, alluding to a potential technical backstory and new functional purpose of the vehicle.

‘Pan Spatial’ became a driving point-of-view and catalyst for infusing a hefty portion of both technical realism and creativity into every technical design I created.

The very first "Pan Spatial" branded concept vehicle: a pen and marker on paper artwork of a single-seat, midwing aircraft, powered by two propellers that emerge through the fuselage, attached to shaft running through the fuselage center. PAN SPATIAL prominently titles the image, which is signed "02 • 89 Alfaro"

The very first Pan Spatial concept vehicle. 1989, 11″ x 14″,  pen and marker on paper.

Over time, as I gained real-world aviation experience, the exercise of leveraging realism and fiction proved valuable for knowing what to fuse together – and what to leave out – for a range of fictional and non-fiction efforts

In 2015, I started doing business as ‘Pan Spatial Aerospace Concept Design’ because it represents a unique and valuable capability I can stand behind and continue to improve.
