Sales, design and installation work for
the Flying Colours Challenger 850 project is the responsibility of Mississauga,
Ontario-based MC2, which has had a long and successful relationship with Flying
Colours performing avionics updates, redesign and installation for cabin
avionics/business communication systems. In addition, MC2 has been actively
promoting True North's products since 2009, when it completed the first
certified installation of its Simphonee OpenCabin system in Canada. "TrueNorth
technology is not only user-focused but also has proven itself from the
standpoint of installation, integration ease and basically working as promised
from day one. We have had great success with them and promote their products
with confidence to our clients like Flying Colours," stated Bill Arsenault, VP
of MC2.

With facilities in Canada and St. Louis, MO, Flying
Colours serves customers in North & South America, Europe, Russia, the
Middle East and India, offering green completions, aircraft refurbishment and
modification, executive conversions and maintenance, among other services.

"Meeting the needs of the discriminating operators who work with Flying
Colours, Simphonee OpenCabin solves the problems of substandard voice and
data management that plague many hardware-centric airborne phone systems," said
Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth's president.
