SERVICESAircraft Wet Washing
With flaps retracted, the entire aircraft is washed using an aviation-approved cleanser. The gear is safely cleaned using a low-pressure water rinse and special brushes. The entire aircraft is then squeegeed and wiped dry, and we take special take with the windows, using only DuPont Sontara© wipes and Miller Stephenson MS-260© acrylic glass cleaner.
With flaps retracted, the entire aircraft is hand wiped using Safe Wash AL, an aviation-approved airframe wipe that meets the requirements of Boeing and McDonnell Douglas. This product delivers great cleaning power and leaves behind a streak free surface. We then take special care with the windows, using only DuPont Sontara© wipes and Miller Stephenson MS-260© acrylic glass cleaner, unless otherwise specified in the maintenance manual.
This is a perfect economical to quickly get your aircraft flight-ready. We carefully hand wipe high visibility areas, dirt areas, nose, gear, door area, leading edges, exhaust track, and engine nacelles. All cabin windows and windscreens are cared for as well.
Our first priority is safely covering all windows and windscreens by papering and taping these areas. This ensures protection to a very costly and sensitive area of your aircraft. We then systematically hand and machine wax all of your painted surfaces. We utilize orbital polishers, which safely clean and polish the surface without heat build-up or swirl marks. Then, we meticulously hand wipe the entire aircraft to ensure all wax is safely removed. While taking proper safety precautions, we isolate the static ports and pitot tubes from ingestion of the material and ensure those safeguards are removed after the work is fully completed.
We recommend a 12-18 month application of acrylic Teflon® paint sealant to new and freshly painted aircraft.

- Improved laminar flow
- Extended paint life
- Reduce coefficient of air friction
- Increased efficiency
- Reduced wash cycles and ease of cleaning
- Easy exhaust and oil removal–Improve appearance
- No need to wax again
- Increased shine and depth of paint
