The Peterborough Headquarters was also awarded heavy Authorized Service Facility (ASF) status to work on Global 5000 and Global 6000 models, by Bombardier Business Aircraft. The existing Peterborough and St. Louis ASF agreement covers work undertaken on Bombardier Learjet and Challenger types, and has just been renewed for a further five years at both locations.

In addition INAIRVATION, the joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and F/LIST that develops business jet cabin solutions, announced that Flying Colours Corp. is one of three partners that has been selected, to install its pre-engineered integrated cabin retrofit solutions on Bombardier Global Express/5000/6000 aircraft. It is the only North American company to have been chosen.

“It’s been a truly memorable NBAA for Flying Colours Corp.,” said Sean Gillespie VP Flying Colours Corp., “We’ve worked extremely hard to achieve the Global ASF status and that has been brilliantly complemented by the INAIRVATION announcement.  We’re also extremely proud to win the North American ASF award following the renewal of our ASF status at both facilities. It stands testament to the hard work of the team and all those involved with Flying Colours Corp.”
