So you love the planes and you want to start an aircraft cleaning service? I can not blame you, as I did the same thing. After cleaning Thousands of aircraft over the years, I paid my flight school, first aircraft and then started a franchise washing of aircraft as a module of another franchising company I established. Named Aircraft Wash Guys that we learned early on what it takes to satisfy aircraft owners, FBOs Fixed Based Operators and Chief Pilots. We are always expert in washing and cleaning aircraft We clean thousands of private airplanes, corporate jets, flight clubs, flight schools and helicopters. My Car Wash Guys company was originally established over twenty years ago and started as an aircraft washing service.
As you know, aviation people are serious about flying and the clean airplane becomes more fun and enjoyable. You need Corporate Survivors to maintain their positive image. When in aircraft washing business you do not just wash the exterior of the airplane, you also need to have carpet-cleaning capabilities. Many of our crewmembers are private pilots and pay for pilots as part of your employee. To learn more about washing the aircraft, I've put some additional ideas online to help you.
