51 Hoffmann 8 H 36 DIMONA Aircraft Handling and Servicing 8.4 STORAGE: For hangar storage the wings can be folded as in Par. 8.2. The wing tips can be hung from the horizontal fin with the provided support fixtures. The rear shear bolts on the fuselage should be padded to protect the wing skin. Should the aircraft be placed in extended s 3rage, it is recommended that profile cushions be placed under the wing as in Par. 8.3.3. The storage room or hangar should have good air circulation in order to preclude moisture build- up. 8.5 CLEANING THE AIRCRAFT : The entire surface of the DIMONA is painted with a weather proof two component paint. Regardless, the aircraft should be protected against excessive moisture or dampness. The aircraft should not be placed in open or unprotected storage for long periods of time. Dirt, insects etc. can be removed by washing, using warm water and a mild detergent. For stubborn spots an automotive paint cleaner can be used. For best result the aircraft should be cleaned after the day’s flying is ended. The lower fuselage surfaces should be inspected for oil and exhaust stains. These can be removed with a cloth moistened with Stoddard solvent or dry cleaning fluid. The areas where oil is present, i.e. breather tubes should be inspected to insure that the oil has not damaged the paint finish. Polishing the aircraft can be done by using a good quality automotive wax. The Plexiglas canopy should be washed with warm water and a mild detergent. Final cleaning is done with a chamois or a soft cotton cloth. Do not rub or polish dry plastic! Several good anti-static plastic cleaners are available at Aviation Supply Houses, and can be used. 8—5

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
