Why an aircraft washing roster?
Our aircraft are our purpose. It is vital we care for these valuable assets. The benefits of regular washing and cleaning are numerous. A roster is the best way to ensure this regularity.
This roster is sent to all regular Sling pilots. The HDFC committee believes it is the responsibility of all pilots who fly club aircraft to ensure they are maintained in a clean and tidy manner. Sharing the load benefits all and keeps costs down.
How does it work?
Three people are scheduled on a fortnightly basis. Washing can occur at any time during this period. The first person listed should contact the two below to arrange a suitable time. Book the aircraft on the calendar.
If you cannot perform your duty in the allocated time period you may arrange a swap with another team. Any changes should be clearly shown on the noticeboard roster.
The Slings are to be washed. This can occur simultaneously or one after the other. Division of labour is your choice.
A box of cleaning materials including instructions is in the hangar. Please read instructions especially with regard to Perspex and the Sling. When finished please date and sign the duty roster also found in the box of cleaning materials.
The hangar is full with aircraft in close proximity. Please exercise extreme care in moving aircraft to avoid damage. Pay particular attention to wingtips moving over propellors and windscreens. Ideally three people should be involved with one on each wingtip and one moving.
Please contact Rod Davison if you have any questions or problems concerning this roster. He will act as the co-ordinator.
Thank you for your assistance in sharing the load.
