Aircraft Washing Service Operations Manual

Anyone who is serious about washing aircraft as a full time profession should be prepared to write a manual, which will insure proper procedures are followed during the washing process. Each crew team leader and manager should be well versed and trained in washing each type of aircraft. Many surfaces of individual aircraft vary and within those specific aircraft there will be many types of surfaces. For instance de-ice boots, fabric, aluminum, Plexiglas, fiberglass, composite and even steel and wood.

It is imperative and paramount that if you own an aircraft washing or detailing business that you have proper manuals in place for your teams of cleaners. Below please find an Outline to an aircraft-cleaning manual. You will need to modify this slightly for your aircraft cleaning business, but it is a good place to start. Go ahead and print this article and then cross off those items you will most likely not be cleaning and add in those items which are not found on the outline. Once you have completed this step then you can write up several paragraphs on each numbered and lettered item. This will become the rough draft of your aircraft cleaning operations manual. After you have completed type it up and add in some aircraft graphics and you have yourself a first class aircraft washing service operations manual with proper protocols and procedures to wash nearly any aircraft or aircraft service.
