how to paint a plane

1 Mask and seal First up, the paint team must seal the whole aircraft, including the windows, and close up all the ducts and sensitive equipment. 2 Strip and sand The next step is to remove all the existing paint from the fuselage using a peroxide-based stripper, which is sprayed over the plane. This naturally dissolves the existing paintwork. The bare metal is then sanded. The plane is inspected for any loose rivets, cracks and other defects, which must be fixed before moving to the next stage. 3 Wash and decontaminate Water is run all over the fuselage and wings to remove any debris or contamination, prior to commencing painting. 4 Prime and paint Most planes are painted using very thin layers of spray paint, which is distributed evenly via low-pressure, high-volume sprayers. Using thin layers not…

helping tci’s youth

interCaribbean continues to support the Edward Garland Youth Centre, a safe space that helps the islands’ youngsters develop their life skills. September saw the fourth annual Miss Edward Gartland Youth Centre Pageant, which formed part of the Turks & Caicos Islands’ National Youth Week. The pageant’s purpose is, says the Centre’s director Roxann Wake-Forbes, “to assist our female members in finding their true personality, their own strengths and weaknesses, gain confidence, and prove to people that it is not impossible to have beauty and brains”. As part of interCaribbean’s sponsorship of the event, the airline invited some of the Centre’s female members to have a look around its new ATR 42-500 aircraft.…


At the time of going to press, interCaribbean was set to launch its new service to Guyana. The airline will link to the South American country’s capital, Georgetown, via direct flights from the island of Barbados. With its indigenous name ‘Guiana’ meaning ‘land of water’, Guyana is renowned for its abundant wildlife, lush landscapes, dense jungle, ancient civilisations and rich culture. The only English-speaking country in South America, it is also an important business destination, with its main exports being sugar, rice and bauxite. Meanwhile, plans are progressing well for the airline to begin flying to Port of Spain in Trinidad, which would bring the total of interCaribbean’s destinations to 27.
