The deal, which was ratified in August, follows a long-standing
relationship with Flying Colours St Louis, USA base which has been a
Honeywell authorized dealer for many years.

Under the auspices of the appointment, Flying Colours Corp. will be able to offer Honeywell’s broad product range, including its Ovation Select Cabin Management System (CMS), to its business aviation clients both in Canada and across the globe. Honeywell’s technical team recently visited Flying Colours at Peterborough to showcase the benefits of Ovation Select on a Gulfstream 550 aircraft and to demonstrate the installation process.

The Ovation Select system features seamless in-flight connectivity providing passengers with enhanced in-flight entertainment and maximum business productivity. Flying Colours Corp. is renowned for its ability to install the latest in cabin management technology, in-flight connectivity and cockpit avionics upgrades and this latest agreement with Honeywell Aerospace serves to further expand its existing offerings. The Flying Colours team is already in discussions with a number of clients about the opportunities presented by Honeywell’s products.

Eric Gillespie, VP for Flying Colours Corp. comments: “We are very honoured to be appointed as an authorised Honeywell distributor. Their innovative products are highly regarded across the globe and as such, this is an important agreement for the company. We are continually being asked by our customers for options for CMS and In-flight entertainment upgrades on all types of mid to large size business aircraft so the new arrangement will enable Flying Colours Corp. to considerably broaden its offering.”


“We were pleased to appoint Flying Colours Corp. as an authorised dealer. Flying Colours St. Louis facility has also demonstrated added value to our customers and it’s a natural progression to formulate an agreement with the Peterborough facility,” said Mike Beazley, Vice President of Aftermarket Sales, Honeywell Aerospace.
