Canadian completion and refurbishment center Flying Colours has received an interest-free loan of $900,000 through the Canadian government’s FedDev Ontario prosperity initiative program. “Our government is committed to giving businesses and communities in southern Ontario the tools they need to innovate and grow,” said Peterborough Member of Parliament Dean Del Mastro.
Flying Colours, a Canadian independent completion and refurbishment center, is knee-deep in cabin finish work on Challenger 850s and conversions of CRJ200 regional jets to executive use. The Peterborough, Ontario-based center delivered its first Challenger 850 completion under contract to Bombardier in December 2009, has another six in various stages of cabin finish work and is awaiting arrival of an eighth aircraft.
On the strength of contracts with Bombardier to provide executive cabins for three Challenger 850s, Canadian interiors specialist Flying Colours is moving into the business of green completion work.
