Flying Colours To Complete VIP CRJ200

Canadian interiors specialist Flying Colours has received a contract to convert a Canadair CRJ200 to an executive/VIP configuration. It is in essence a green completion, with the old airline interior gutted and replaced with an executive layout, including new thermal/acoustic and interior shell packages, a galley, an entertainment system from Audio International and LED lighting from Emteq. It will also feature a new exterior paint job, as well as auxiliary fuel tanks to increase the range.

The airplane was scheduled to arrive at Flying Colours this month, and the Peterborough, Ontario, center expects to turn over the finished airplane to an unidentified client in August. While Flying Colours has done interiors on aircraft of similar size, such as the Gulfstream IV, this is its first executive/VIP CRJ200 job.
