Ever wondered why most airplanes are painted white?

Ever wondered why most airplanes are painted white?

Of course there are reasons for this. When you want to make a guess, what would be the first answer you think of? Most of us answer this question as the cost of paint. White paint has a lower cost than other colors. This reason is one of the answers. But not all answers are so commonplace.

Money management is unquestionably the foremost concept for a corporate economy. Minimum expenditure is targeted based on certain standards in order to achieve maximum profit. We are aware of the differences arising between seat classes, lounge differences, dining and drinking fees in any journey. For this reason, it is not surprising that this expense table is kept at minimum cost for aircraft painting. For companies with fleets of 300, 500 or even 1000s, these costs are not a number to be underestimated.

Along with the cost of white paint, there are also extra positive aspects. For example, in maintenance work, any damage to the surface of the aircraft is much easier to detect on the white surface than other colors. Another aspect is that white is the color that reflects light best. To reduce the risk of bird strikes during the flight. White color, which provides better reflection, has a positive effect on birds escaping from the plane.
