And how would one get a job as an aircraft cleaner. (I am not trying to be rude and disrespectful, I just want to know)
Because If I do not make it as a pilot, I would like to be an FA, a Aircraft loader, Aircraft cleaner, or a Aircraft ramp guy.

During part of the time I was a ramper @ FL, a/c cabin cleaning was part of the ramp crews' responsibility @ ATL. I cleaned the following types:


RON a/c would be cleaned by a company called Skyclean.

And how would one get a job as an aircraft cleaner. (I am not trying to be rude and disrespectful, I just want to know)

It depends, as some airlines (and ground handling companies) do have their own cleaning crews (Usually is part of the catering department, but at some, it is part of the ramp crew), while others contract it out to companies that specialize in cleaning.

I was a cleaner for a few months in 2001 and had following aircraft:

Dash 8-100 (C9, IQ)
Dash 8-300 (C9, IQ)
Fokker 50 (6N)
Beech1900 (6N)
MD-82/83 (AY)
MD-87 (IB)
A319/320/321 (IB, AY,IWD)
737-400 (UX)

My first aircraft was IQ's D-BHAS, now idea why I still remember that...

I used to work as an aircraft cleaner (or as some people like to call it, aircraft groomer) at MAN and in that time i cleaned :

Virgin 747's
Delta MD-11's

I can't remember if i also cleaned Monarch or the then titled Air 2000.

I'll never forget almost being knocked off my feet when i was cleaning one of Virgins 747's, i was reaching for a seat pocket to check it and the tug driver began towing the aircraft onto the stand. I ended up 'headbutting' the seat!!
One day i was in the cockpit of a Delta MD-11, and there were THREE flightcrew in there. So as i'm vacuuming in there, the 3rd flightcrew member is sitting there eating crackers spilling most of it on himself and the floor!!!!!!

I got the job by checking the airports website, plus in the UK we have 'jobcentres' where lots of jobs are posted so that always helped when i was searching for a job at the airport.
