Grand opening for Flying Colours Corp’s Singapore facility

North America-headquartered completion and refurbishment specialist Flying Colours Corp has inaugurated its interiors facility at the Bombardier Service Center at Seletar Airport in Singapore. The grand opening ceremony took place on April 21, 2015.

John Gillespie, president and CEO of Flying Colours Corp, along with senior management executives from the company, invited Stan Younger, vice president of aircraft service centers at Bombardier, Dominic Ong, head of aerospace and land at Singapore Economic Development Board (which has supported the venture from inception) and Frank Quah, representative of the High Commission of Canada, Singapore, to join them in cutting the ceremonial opening ribbon.

“We are delighted that we can now offer Bombardier owners and operators the option to have interior requirements fulfilled in Asia,” said Gillespie. “Previously they had to fly aircraft to Europe or North America to receive the quality of workmanship expected, but with the opening of our facility, they can now benefit from work being undertaken within the region. It is a very exciting day for Flying Colours.”

Guests took a tour of the facility, which covers 12,000ft² within the Bombardier building. It houses a dedicated gluing workshop, polishing room with down-draft tables, and a sanding room. A humidity-controlled spray room is used for varnishing and finishing woodwork. Numerous workstations are set up for upholstery, other soft furnishings and material cutting. A dedicated design room has also been installed where customers are invited to discuss refurbishment projects, select materials and create new designs.

Flying Colours Corp has already completed its first project at the facility, refinishing the woodwork of a Singapore-based Bombardier Challenger 605. A team of 12 –consisting of local recruits and technicians from Flying Colours Corp’s Canadian facility – is now working on two Asia Pacific-based Globals, refurbishing and refinishing the woodwork on both aircraft.

Interior services available at the Singapore facility include preliminary inspections, removal and installation, repairs, modifications and refurbishment. Being sited alongside an EASA repair station means owners and operators can have interior work, and comprehensive line and heavy maintenance services carried out in one location.
