Our Process

A meticulous paint process made possible by more than 70 years of experience.

1. Evaluation

Before any work begins, you and one of our paint refurbishment experts will inspect and evaluate your aircraft. This is our opportunity to get to know you and your aircraft, ask questions, and understand your vision.

2. Stripping

We’ll begin by masking sensitive areas such as your aircraft’s windows and landing gear, then apply a chemical stripping agent. The released paint will then be removed and the entire aircraft rinsed clean. Now that the skin is exposed, we’ll inspect your aircraft for any corrosion that was previously hidden by the paint.

3. Preparation

To prepare your aircraft for paint application, bare aluminum surfaces are chemically treated to prevent future corrosion and composite surfaces are hand sanded. Surface imperfections are reduced through the use of an aerodynamic filler to ensure the final product is nearly glass smooth. Lastly, your aircraft’s sensitive areas are then re-masked.

4. Painting

Our painters apply a layer of primer, which acts as both additional corrosion protection and a bonding surface for the paint. The aircraft then receives as many as four coats of its overall base color. Once cured, our experienced design painters begin to lay out the stripes and accent colors. While a computer rendering guides our artisans, it’s their keen eye for detail and steady hands that allow it to look “just right” when the paint is applied and the masking is removed.
