Painting an aircraft takes hours of painstaking care and preparation. While most of the attention goes to the design and glossy exterior, the paint creates a thin, protective shell that’s the aircraft’s only line of defense against the elements. When that shell begins to fail, the aircraft is at risk of corrosion—meaning the structural integrity of the aluminum skin is in jeopardy. To maintain the bottom line, owners and operators may be enticed by lower costs, but what they don’t know is that savings may cost more in the long run. That’s where the cost-benefit analysis comes into play. Our Industry Benchmark Forum: Aircraft Paint team gathered to discuss processes, products and how to produce the best product for the customer. This document is the result of that brainstorming session that spanned OEMs and MROs.
Duncan Aviation continuously strives to be the voice of clarity in the acronym-happy aviation industry. Our free whitepaper Field Guides are an aircraft operator's source for information about important topics in business aviation, and are written in clear, concise, no-nonsense language.
Since the 1990s, we have been publishing the slightly more technical Field Guide documents to address complicated avionics mandates and other industry initiatives. Our goal is to educate customers so they can make the most informed decisions possible for their aircraft, passengers and company. Authored by Duncan Aviation’s technical experts, operators can call and speak with these experts anytime they wish for clarification for more information.
