“The increase in cabin overhauls really exemplifies the change in demand from the maturing Asia and Middle East markets as savvy owners and operators recognise the benefits of acquiring pre-owned aircraft,” says Paul Dunford, General Manager of Flying Colours Corp PTE.
Our team is well-equipped to tackle minor repairs, through to full completion work scopes and has built a reputation for producing results equal to the mature markets in North America and Europe. We are now well known to the Asian and Middle East-based customers.”
“This has stimulated a need for high-level refurbishments and demand for complete customisation has increased.” Flying Colours is meeting the charge providing highest standard interior services to a widening customer-base. Its 20-strong team now supports Bombardier and aircraft owners in Asia and the Middle East by mirroring its North American facilities in providing full refurbishment services while aircraft are in the hangars for maintenance.
“A few years ago, the Asian market preferred to buy new, but we are seeing more purchasers looking to buy pre-owned and style it in their own look. Our team is well-equipped to tackle minor repairs, through to full completion work scopes and has built a reputation for producing results equal to the mature markets in North America and Europe. We are now well known to the Asian and Middle East-based customers.”
The latest project is becoming the norm for the Flying Colours Corp PTE team. “There are more than 300 Bombardier business aircraft in the region and many are nearing their 96-and 120-month inspection intervals. We believe this is a great opportunity, as we can fully support an operator’s interior refurbishment needs and deliver a customised, high-quality aircraft, in parallel with the maintenance work. We anticipate a very busy year in 2019,” says Dunford.
