1. Always check the aircraft operation and safety manual before proceeding.
2. Follow the instructions specific to any exterior instrumentation that should not be pressure washed.
3. Donīt use a ladder since the kick from the pressure could knock you off.
4. Use an power washer extension wand instead to reach the highest points.
