What is Aircraft Detailing?

Aircraft detailing is the process of restoring, maintaining, and  protecting interior and exterior surfaces on aircraft to prolong the appearance, value, and functionality of aircraft. Specialized  knowledge is required to prevent damage to different surfaces and flight instruments.

Protecting Your Investment

Protecting interior and exterior surfaces prolongs the life of the aircraft. A clean aircraft allows for more accurate inspections and helps identify potential issues early. Our aircraft detailers are trained to identify and report any unusual, broken, or missing parts found while detailing aircraft.

Prevent Corrosion

Regular detailing prevents corrosion on painted surfaces. When paint oxidizes, it dries out and loses its protective properties. The  compromised paint layer can expose the underlying aluminum,  leading to corrosion. Repairs can be costly and ground the aircraft for an unknown amount of time.

Mirror-Like Finish

The polished metal surfaces are both corrosion preventatives and  aesthetically pleasing. Oxidation and environmental contamination can corrode aluminum. Corrosion compromises aluminum by  weakening the metal. Regularly polishing brightwork removes  oxidation and contamination to leave a mirror-like finish.

Increased De-icer Performance

Ice adhesion increases with surface  roughness. With proper maintenance, de-ice boots remain  conditioned and smooth to increase de-icer performance. We offer  a silicone-based product to lower the adhesion strength between ice and de-icer surfaces to allow ice to shed more easily.

Maintain the Aircraft’s Value

A well-maintained aircraft can lead to a higher price on the resale market due to its pristine condition.

Interior Care and Maintenance

Specific chemicals and cleaning procedures are necessary to  safely clean and maintain interior surfaces. Special care is  needed  for acrylic and pressurized windows. A properly cleaned  cockpit is essential to reduce the risk of equipment malfunctions. Leather needs to be regularly maintained to prolong its life and  appearance. Frequent vacuuming prevents dirt from becoming  embedded into the carpet. Full carpet extraction requires a specific pH and drying procedures to prevent mold. This is a sample of  surfaces to maintain. Properly trained aircraft detailers know how  to safely clean aircraft interiors.
