Flying Colours Corp., the North American MRO, completion and refurbishment specialist, has announced the first of eight CRJ 200 conversions, will be re-delivered to Joint Venture partner Sparkle Roll Jet (SRJ) before the end of April.

The multi-class format required a new STC for China which the Civil Aviation Administration of China, CAAC, certified at Flying Colours Corp.’s Peterborough facility. This is the first time that a B registered CRJ aircraft has been reconfigured outside of China, and then returned on the same registry with the approvals taking place outside of China.

The interior has been reconfigured from a regional aircraft formation to a 29 seat, multi-class, shuttle format. The aft section features 20 economy seats with an aft toilet, the middle incorporates four business class seats in two double club layout in the middle section, and the front cabin featuring a double club business class seat with facing three seat divan. In addition a small forward galley incorporating ovens and coffee makers, has been completely refurbished and modified.
