Flying Colours Corp. has delivered a reconfigured Falcon 2000LXS to an undisclosed Canadian client, who has been working with the Peterborough-based refurbishment, completions and MRO specialist for more than 20 years.

“We’re always delighted when a long-term customer entrusts us with a new project,” said Sean Gillespie, executive vice president, Flying Colours. “We’ve performed a dozen projects for this client over the last two decades and their repeat business tells us we offer the range and depth of services that customers are looking for. Our ability to cover all aspects of the refurbishment from design engineering, to interior upgrades and exterior paintwork in a single location is very attractive for owners.”

The Falcon 2000LXS project included significant cabin layout modification, cabinetry refinishing, metal re-plating and a hand-woven carpet installation. Flying Colours explains its design engineering team reconfigured the aft cabin floorplan by replacing an existing four seat club format with a three-seat divan, flanked by new cabinets. Two existing seats from the front of the cabin were reupholstered, and relocated, opposite the divan. Four new production seats, featuring the same leather as the aft, were installed in in the front section.

Flying Colours also added finished wood veneers, featuring what the company describes as a rich recon rosewood colour with a honey stain to complement the brushed nickel metal finishing. The company also points to its work with side-ledges featuring tablet stowage arms, intended to maximize space and productivity. Externally, the jet’s fuselage was stripped back and repainted with a dual colour scheme in Flying Colours’ computerized, climate-controlled paint shop that was opened this March in Peterborough.
