Flying Colours Finding Business at Home

 - November 9, 2006, 5:22 AM

Canadian independent completion center Flying Colours, which traditionally finds about 70 percent of its business south of the border, is seeing more Canadian customers this year. According to director of sales and marketing Sean Gillespie, the Peterborough, Ontario, center recently delivered two complete Challenger refurbishments for two Canadian customers. One Challenger interior was strictly executive/VIP, with dark cherry veneer refacing, ultra-leather sidewalls and frosted gold metal plating throughout. The other Challenger went from an executive cabin to a 19-passenger corporate shuttle layout with a customized “airline style” galley.
