Flying Colours Corp. experiences record increases in maintenance activity
Flying Colours Corp. the US and Canadian based MRO, completions and refurbishment business has experienced record increases year on year in terms of maintenance activity requests and output. There has been a 35% increase in the amount of Bombardier Challenger family and Learjet aircraft type maintenance requests ranging from line maintenance work through to intensive 96 month inspections which entail an exhaustive and comprehensive review of the entire aircraft. The Peterborough facility, which has traditionally been known for its CRJ ExecLiner conversions, has expanded its overall maintenance offering and has experienced a 25% increase in Bombardier Global family aircraft maintenance requests in the last twelve months. The appointment as an Authorised Service Facility for Bombardier at last year’s NBAA has supported this rise in requests and much of the business has come from new customers.
