Don't let this happen to your Cirrus SR22

Owning a Cirrus SR22 is a privilege, but maintaining its pristine appearance can sometimes be a challenge. In this video, we delve into the essential steps of cleaning, polishing, and protecting your aircraft to prevent common issues like paint staining and window etching.

One of the most frequent problems aircraft owners face is insufficient protection for their surfaces. Without proper shielding, contaminants such as bugs can etch the paint and windows, detracting from the aircraft's beauty and potentially causing long-term damage.

In our recent YouTube video, we encountered a Cirrus SR22 with stunning paintwork but lacking protection. Bugs had begun etching the windows and paint, emphasizing the importance of proactive care. To address this issue, we turned to a range of high-quality products designed specifically for aircraft maintenance.

Our process began with a thorough wash using Fly Shiny Oil Delete to remove oil residue from the aircraft's underside, followed by Fly Shiny Static Guard to ensure a clean surface. With the foundation set, we proceeded to polish the affected areas using Fly Shiny Polish Pro, a product renowned for its effectiveness and efficiency. Despite requiring minimal polish on the pad, the results were remarkable, with a noticeable improvement in gloss.

However, polishing alone is not enough to safeguard your aircraft against future damage. That's where Fly Shiny Air Guard comes in. This hydrophobic solution not only enhances the gloss but also provides a protective barrier against bug etchings and other contaminants. By investing in Fly Shiny Air Guard, you can prolong the lifespan of your paint and windows, sparing yourself the need for frequent polishing and reapplication.
