PAC International, a Metro Aviation Company, recently completed maintenance and exterior refurbishments on the first of two Bell UH1-H aircraft for the Michigan State Police.

PAC utilized their state-of-the-art soft media blast booth to remove the majority of the aircraft’s original paint. “This aircraft had the original military CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating) paint which was extremely hard to sand. This paint is used on military vehicles to make metal surfaces highly resistant to corrosion and penetration of chemical agents”, said Bryan Fisher, Paint Supervisor at PAC. Once the paint was removed, the airframe was found to be in excellent condition and free of corrosion. The end result is a superior finish that will last for many years to come.
