  • CRJ Corporate Shuttle rendering

Flying Colours Corp., the Ontario, Canada-based aviation company has
been granted a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) by the European
Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for its new CRJ ExecLiner Corporate
Shuttle programme. The STC, which was confirmed in June
2013, covers the interior modifications for the CRJ ExecLiner Shuttle
format developed internally by Flying Colours Corp. This latest interior
is designed to accommodate 16 passengers in a spacious business class
environment. Some available interior options
include coloured LED mood lighting, high speed data & wifi
solutions, IFE installations, and updated galley & lavatory designs.

This latest EASA STC complements the STC awarded by Transport Canada
for this specific shuttle conversion in 2012 and the Federal Aviation
Association (FAA) will confirm its STC approval in the near future.

Flying Colours Corp is already working on nine Corporate Shuttle
ExecLiners for  three undisclosed international clients.  Until now
Flying Colours Corp. has focused solely on business jet completion and
refurbishment but is receiving increased interest
in its Corporate Shuttle offering from long standing owners and
international operators. "The Corporate Shuttle ExecLiner is becoming
increasingly attractive for the market owing to its cost-effective
proposition. Pre-owned CRJ aircraft are very competitively
priced, operating costs are comparable with other regional aircraft,
the high quality interiors means that refurbishment costs are not
excessive and the CRJ type is adaptable for a range of specific mission
profiles for regional operators," said Sean Gillespie,
VP Flying Colours Corp.

In addition to the conversion work Flying Colours Corp. can provide
clients with a full scope of purchase support from airframe acquisition
through to pre-purchase inspections and sub-sequential delivery
organisation. Once at the facility Flying Colours
Corp. covers all aspects of the refurbishment from paint work and
maintenance to interior design, avionics and communications
implementation under one roof. "The capacity to provide the full service
in one location is very attractive to potential clients as
it can reduce project management time in addition to simplifying the
communications and administration involved.  We are being contacted by
those in the American, Russian, Asian and European markets who
understand the value the Corporate Shuttle ExecLiner
offers and working with just one completion centre," continues

This latest CRJ conversion programme further strengthens Flying
Colours Corp.'s CRJ offering as the business now offers both VIP and
Corporate Shuttle options that  when finished match new OEM quality
completions. In addition the new STC provides a wider
variety of options for potential European owners and operators seeking
alternatives to buying new aircraft.
