757 Business Jet - Case Study by Warren Bertschinger

Thursday, May 07, 2015

 

Permagard Brisbane received a request from Hawker Pacific in Brisbane to provide a quote for an external wash on a B757 business jet.

They provided the contact details of the Director of Operations and after further discussions with him, We were able to extend the wash request to include the leading edge brightwork.

We inspected the aircraft on arrival and as expected, the aircraft was in excellent condition.

We had limited ground time to perform the scope of work, so it was agreed that we would perform the external wash and landing gear clean and defer the brightwork to the next available ground time.

Hawker Pacific were extremely happy with the results of the wash and We took the opportunity to discuss their requirements for the cabin interior deep cleans and Permagard application.

They did not require a full deep clean or leather protection at the time but requested a wipe down of the seats and full clean of the galleys (3) and the 4 toilets on their return.

Once we started on the brightwork, we found that the upper wing leading edges were badly marked. They had assumed that it was just water marks but in fact it was corrosion.

We were able to buff out most of the effective areas but due to the extra time spent on the wings, we had to defer the engines & tail section to a later date.

We also highlighted a few issues in the cabin (stains/marks and ingrained dirt) which had been there for years that we were able to remove.

As mentioned, the team did an excellent job and a credit to Kevin Goodwin and his his team for their exceptional attention to detail.

The jet's owners have not finalised their plans but they are looking at repainting the aircraft early next year and have requested a quote for a Permagard application.
