With flaps retracted, the entire aircraft is washed using an aviation-approved cleanser. 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 care 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 Boeing and McDonnell Douglas requirements. 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 service to quickly get your aircraft flight ready. We carefully hand wipe high visibility and dirt areas, nose, gear, door area, leading edges, exhaust track, leading edges, and engine nacelles. All cabin windows and windscreens are also cared for.
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. We then meticulously hand wipe the entire aircraft to ensure all wax is safely removed. We take proper safety precautions to isolate the Static Ports and Pitot Tubes from ingestion of the material, and ensure those safeguards are removed after the work is completed.
We recommend a 12-18 month application of acrylic Teflon® paint sealant to new and freshly-painted aircraft.

Specific benefits include:
- 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

We recommend this paint polishing process for paint that is starting to show staining and oxidation. Utilizing a line of 3m paint-polishing compounds, we safely remove oxidation and imperfections, and then seal the paint with Nu-Power II by Nuvite Chemical.

As part of this process, all cabin windows and cockpit windows are protected by paper and tape to avoid polishing residue.
