The new service centre status will offer Canadian owners of these models a convenient one stop centre for all their aircraft service requirements as Flying Colours Corp. can provide maintenance, modifications, refurbishment and paint work services under the terms of the ASC.
 
Flying Colours Corp. has a long affiliation with Beechcraft brands, with its first Beechcraft project for a customer being carried out on a Beech 99 in the early 1980’s. In addition it is well positioned to fulfill its ASC status as its team includes 18 licensed technicians that have been working on Beechcraft manufactured products since the company’s founding over twenty five years ago.  The latest Service Centre appointment complements the existing relationship that Flying Colours Corp. has with Blackhawk Modifications Inc. which appointed it as an Authorized Service and Modification Centre in October 2011 and sees it providing specific modification options to Canadian owners.

John Gillespie, CEO of Flying Colours Corp. stated: “The entire Flying Colours Corp. team is very excited to be part of the Beechcraft ASC network as they start the next chapter of their organization’s history. The Canadian Aviation market is an area that we are dedicated to supporting and we look forward expanding our service offerings to our local customer base.”
 
Flying Colours Corp. already operates two fully certified facilities in Peterborough and St Louis, MO., which provide comprehensive aircraft maintenance, overhaul and refurbishment services for a range of jet aircraft. With the new agreement in place Flying Colours Corp. will be continuing to ramp up its offering to the Canadian Turboprop market as it explores further opportunities for expansion in this sector.
