North America-headquartered completion and refurbishment specialist Flying Colours Corp. has inaugurated its interiors facility at the Bombardier Service Centre, Seletar Airport, Singapore. The grand opening ceremony, which took place on April 21, welcomed 40 guests including owners, operators, and a distinguished aviation elite, to celebrate the company's latest venture in Asia.

John Gillespie, President & CEO of Flying Colours Corp. and senior Flying Colours management executives invited Stan Younger, Bombardier, VP Aircraft Service Centres; Dominic Ong, Head of Aerospace & Land, Singapore Economic Development Board, which has supported the venture from inception; and Frank Quah, Representative of the High Commission of Canada, Singapore, to join them in cutting the ceremonial opening ribbon. Commenting on the facility Gillespie said, "We are delighted that we can now offer Bombardier owners and operators the option to have interior requirements fulfilled in Asia. Previously they had to fly aircraft to Europe or North America to receive the quality of workmanship expected, but with the opening of our facility, they can now benefit from work being undertaken within the region. It is a very exciting day for Flying Colours."

Guests took a tour of the facility, which covers a 12,000 square feet footprint within the Bombardier building. It houses a dedicated gluing workshop, polishing room with down draft tables, and sanding room. A humidity controlled spray room provides a secure area for varnishing and finishing woodwork.  Numerous workstations are set up for upholstery, soft furnishing, and material cutting. A dedicated design room has also been installed where customers are invited to discuss interior refurbishment projects, select materials and create new designs.

With a capacity for multiple aircraft projects to be undertaken at any one time Flying Colours has already completed its first project to refinish the woodwork of a Singapore-based Bombardier Challenger 605. The twelve-strong team consisting of local recruits and technicians from the Canadian facility is now working on two Asia Pacific-based Global models refurbishing and refinishing the woodwork on both aircraft.   Flying Colours Corp. offers a full range of interiors services including preliminary interior inspections, interior removals and installation, interior repair work, interior modification work and interior refurbishment work at the Singapore- facility. The full service interior offering complements the fully certified EASA repair station enabling owners and operators to have interior work, comprehensive line and heavy maintenance services carried out in one location.  

Flying Colours will be promoting the Seletar facility to delegates at this year's EBACE on Booth G066
