Job Description for Aircraft Painter

An aircraft painter applies paint, lacquer, and epoxy to an aircraft that may be either pre-mixed or mixed by the painter. The painter should be able to use a variety of painting tools such as rollers, brushes, and spray guns. The paint is applied to the inner and outer parts of the aircraft. Prior to applying the paint, the painter may have other duties such as removing the previous paint coat from the aircraft. Also, the painter will have to sand down and smooth the aircraft to make sure that the surface will be smooth for the paint application. Then the aircraft painter needs to perform techniques in order to ensure that the paint adheres properly to the aircraft.
