Feature Article: Pilot/Owner Maintenance
Keeping an aircraft clean greatly improves both its appearance
and its performance. When you clean an aircraft you learn a great
deal about its construction and maintenance. You become aware
of small defects and maintenance problems. Cleaning protects the
thin layer of paint from the corrosion potential of dirt and airborne
chemicals. Detergent and water are the best aircraft cleaners.
If heavy grease must be removed be sure to obtain something other
than a household cleaner should be used. Specifically, get a degreaser
designed only for aircraft use.
Only aircraft type cleaners should be used on plastics and
Plexiglas. Using a dry cloth on Plexiglas will cause an electrostatic
charge to develop what will attract dust. Washing is the best
cleaning method for Plexiglas.
Oils and solvents from the ground or in the air damage natural
rubber more than synthetic. Light, especially sunlight will affect
the durability and elasticity of rubber. Keep your tires both
clean and out of direct sunlight. Keep all rubber surfaces free
Frequent use of a specific aircraft gives the pilot an opportunity
to determine what normal operation feels and sounds like. Knowing
this makes early detection of abnormal conditions more easily
