Default Cleaning an Airplane

Can I use Cleaner wax for the paint of the airplane? What about the windshield? Can I use Plastic Polish?

Your input is truly appreciated.

Cleaner Wax is fine for the body.

You'll need to confirm the makeup of the windshield, and that it's not coated.

There is a challenge with polishing plastic airplane windscreens that is similar to polishing motorcycle windscreens -- a challenge that is very different from polishing headlights, for example.

The biggest challenge is to maintain optical clarity that improves vision and won't distract the eye, since the pilot or rider is so reliant on that optical clarity over a broad area.

Also, on an airplane or motorcycle you also do not want to polish through any coating it may have, or in other ways compromise the coating's integrity. In other words, some scratches may not be feasibly removed.

Beyond aviation polishes that are similar to our Plastic Polish, there are some specialty light cleaner products available in aviation shops that may be more suitable for routine maintenance.
