Flying Colours Corp. Peterborough, the Canadian MRO, completions, and refurbishment company has received approval from the Bermuda Department of Civil Aviation to carry out maintenance work on business aircraft listed on the popular Bermudan registry.

The approval, which was awarded in late May, enables Flying Colours to undertake heavy and line maintenance work on a full range of Bermuda registered aircraft, including Bombardier, Falcon, Embraer and Gulfstream aircraft as listed on its Transport Canada Civil Aviation, (TCCA) Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) certificate.

A dedicated maintenance team from Flying Colours Corp. will begin work on its first Bermuda registered aircraft at its Peterborough facility in July. The Bombardier Challenger will undergo maintenance inspections, external paintwork, and interior modifications.

“This addition to our growing list of international approvals is really good news for us. It makes it easier for clients with aircraft on the registry to bring aircraft to us for work, and on completion we can redeliver back to the client under our existing AMO. We know that the Bermuda registry is popular worldwide so this provides an opportunity to continue developing our international client base,” said Eric Gillespie, Executive VP of Flying Colours. 

The latest addition bolsters a growing list of maintenance approvals held by Flying Colours which currently include certificates from the CAAC, GACA, Qatari CAAC, Transport Canada, FAA, EASA, and Cayman Island. Combined, these approvals enable Flying Colours to offer on-going services to a broad spectrum of private aircraft across a range of international registries. It also complements its status as a Bombardier Business Aircraft Authorized Service Facility and preferred completion center.
