The Peterborough headquarters of MRO and completions specialist, Flying Colours Corp., is going “global” as it announces Bombardier Business Aircraft has awarded the Peterborough facility heavy Authorized Service Facility (ASF) status to work on Global 5000 and Global 6000 business aircraft.
The authorization will take effect November 16, the eve of this year’s NBAA meeting where Flying Colours Corp. will be exhibiting on Booth C9340. The news comes hard on the heels of Flying Colours Corp.’s Chesterfield, Missouri facility receiving Bombardier’s annual ASF Excellence Award in the North America category, as well as Flying Colours Corp. confirming Bombardier has also renewed its existing ASF status for a further five years at both its Canadian and USA facilities. The existing Peterborough ASF agreement currently covers heavy work undertaken on Bombardier Challenger 605 and Challenger 850 business jets. Bombardier Business Aircraft originally named Flying Colours Corp. as an ASF in October 2012.
“The addition of Global aircraft to our existing Bombardier ASF status illustrates the confidence the manufacturer has in us to perform work on the Global business jets, and enables us to work with an even greater number of owners and operators,” said Eric Gillespie, Vice President, Flying Colours Corp.
Flying Colours Corp. has invested significant time, money and human resources into maintaining the standards required to retain its ASF status. The 450-strong team will continue to receive on-going training, whilst investment in new tooling equipment will also be made. “This announcement is validation of our team’s commitment to maintaining customer satisfaction and continuing to grow our scope of work on the Global airframe,” adds Gillespie.
Flying Colours Corp. will be exhibiting on booth number C9340 at this year’s NBAA.
