Cleaning Polished Aluminum

My CH 750 is mostly polished aluminum and it got caught out in a rain storm for a few hours. With the rain a bunch of ash from the wild fire also came down. I pressure washed the plane the next day with clear water and all the loose ash came off but left some nasty stains. I tried the cleaners that I have on hand but nothing seems to work on this stuff. So I thought I was going to have to polish it off that doesn't work very well either and is going to be a huge job. I was hoping someone on…See More

Well I made it! I flew C-FPQO from High River AB to Oshkosh. It was 7 legs, just under 1300 miles one way, over 3 days on the way down and 2 days on the way back.

Three days short of three years since I picked up the tail kit from the freight depot I have a flying airplane. Everything went according to plan, no surprises, thanks God.

Hi Vance,

Great to hear from you, I am still in FSJ. I started building a CH 750 on August 28th this year. I am building it with the assistance of Skytek Aviation Services in Vernon that is a Builder's Assist Shop and they are a great help in working on my airplane. I have been down for two one week sessions to work with them on the plane, they usually work on the plane when I am back in FSJ.

Give me a call and we can discuss our projects and get caught up on other news.

Best Wishes O'Brian
