Cleaning Procedures

AIRCRAFT EXTERIOR
WINDSCREEN - Clean after every flight with Brilliantize and a soft cloth. Use straight up and down strokes. Avoid circular motion, which can create swirls in the Plexiglas. Never use abrasive cleaning pads as they cause damage.
 
LEADING EDGES, COWLING, STRUTS, WHEEL PANTS, SPINNER AND PROPELLER - Clean as necessary with plain water in the bucket and a scrungie and wiped dry with a towel. Do not add soap to the water in the bucket. If the bucket is empty (or the water dirty), the pilot should add/change same as necessary. DC-99 can be used for extra dirty spots.

GARBAGE - Removed.
 
PERSONAL ITEMS - Do you have everything?
