Bombardier has appointed Flying Colours of Peterborough, Ontario, and its subsidiary JetCorp Technical Services of St. Louis as authorized service facilities (ASF) for its Learjet and Challenger business jets. Flying Colours is known for its new green Challenger 850 completions as a Bombardier- authorized completion center.

As part of the Bombardier ASF appointment, the Flying Colours workforce, currently more than 350 employees, will benefit from enhanced training. Further, it will maintain a strict set of operating procedures led by the Lean system it already adheres to at each facility.

Flying Colours is already equipped to handle a full range of aircraft services beyond just maintenance. Both facilities can support completions, interior refurbishment and modification, interior design, exterior paint, component service and avionics installation programs on a wide range of aircraft.

JetCorp began maintenance on its 35th Challenger 300 in September. The job includes a full 96-month inspection, interior refurbishment and new exterior paint.
