Prepare for a Good First Impression

PrimeFlight Aviation Services established PrimeFlight X-Wash as a specialized division of our company, developed to address a highly specialized need in the aircraft cleaning industry.

It's no mystery why aircraft should be washed frequently. Apart from creating a strikingly improved appearance of a highly visible representation of your brand, regular exterior aircraft cleaning extends paint life, enabling longer intervals between repainting. Exterior washing also maintains the integrity of the paint through processes that remove oxidants and potentially harmful chemicals. Our application of a UV protective wax goes even further to protect the aircraft's skin.

These processes — combined with specialty services like the cleaning and disinfecting of cargo bins, wheel well cleaning, flap track and leading edge cleaning — all contribute to a clean, smooth aircraft, meaning less drag, increased fuel economy and minimized corrosion.

Safety First

Employee Safety

We've established a wide-ranging safety training program that is provided to each employee during their orientation, where key safety considerations are taught, tested and drilled upon until each employee is acutely informed on safety procedures.

But we don't stop there. To continually enforce and reinforce the importance of a safe environment, the Safety-Based Behavior Reward Plan gives employees the opportunity to earn additional compensation based on their team's safety track record.

We also form Employee Safety Committees that are responsible for peer safety and oversight. Shift meetings with a "Safety Hot Topic" are held regularly and safety meetings on national and local levels are conducted monthly.

Aircraft Safety

You'll often hear from us that our people are our most important asset. Well they are, and we want to make sure they're working safely with one of your most important assets: the aircraft we're cleaning.

That begins with ensuring our equipment is in top operating shape. All of our vehicles are regularly inspected to ensure that all vehicle lights, brakes, wheel chocks and fluid levels are in proper working condition prior to each day's work. We've also defined the quantity and type of equipment that are authorized to be in close proximity to your aircraft and require all of our equipment operators to pass rigorous testing before they're authorized to perform duties around your aircraft.

Specialty Services

Leather Seat Reconditioning

In addition to exterior aircraft washing, PrimeFlight offers full cabin appearance services. But what truly sets us apart from other providers is our ability to offer specialty cabin services like leather seat reconditioning.

Leather seats are a big investment and require periodic reconditioning to keep them looking fresh. We start by applying a multi-action enzymatic cleanser that has been approved by manufacturers and air carriers worldwide. Then we immediately deep clean the leather, working with a high-speed orbital buffer using a super-soft bush to eliminate the toughest odors and stains. Finally we employ a top-of-the-line leather conditioner and protectant, sprayed and worked by hand to every part of the seat, even inside the back pocket.

The finished product: each seat bright, fresh and truly clean — ready for the next million miles!
