Flying Colours Corp. to achieve full CAAC approval
Flying Colours Corp., the Canada-based maintenance, completions, and refurbishments specialists, reported that it has become the first Canadian MRO to receive complete airframe and specialized service CCAR 145 MOC, (China Civil Aviation Regulations 145 Maintenance Organization Certificate), approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the CAAC. The certificate, which was awarded on January 10th, 2014, is awarded to foreign companies that already hold their own national CAA approvals and complements the growing list of approvals held by the Peterborough based business. The approval enables Flying Colours Corp. to conduct full airframe inspections, repairs and scheduled maintenance, along with specialised services including sheet metal work, composite repairs, paintwork, interior completions and modifications on Chinese registered aircraft at its expanding Peterborough, Ontario facility. The initial airframes approved for work include the complete family of Bombardier Global Express aircraft (BD-700-1A10), the Bombardier Challenger (CL 600-2B16) models, and the Challenger 850 type. Flying Colours Corp. will continue to add to the model types listed as customer demand requires.
