Flying Colours, the North American maintenance, repair, overhaul and completions business has broken ground as work starts on building its largest hangar to date. Industrial construction company Vicano Construction Ltd braved the cool Ontario weather to formally begin the fourth phase of expansion plans at the Canada-headquartered business aviation company this month. 

On completion in mid-2019 the new building will house a a climate controlled, dedicated paint-shop, a spacious hangar large enough to hold up to A220-size aircraft, as well as offices, customer meeting rooms, interiors workshops and a board room. The investment of approximately CAD$25 million will add a further 100, 000 square feet to the Peterborough footprint.  

“Our business has grown significantly over the last twelve months and we were running out of space to accommodate all our clients’ requests. Once the building is complete we will be using it to provide additional capacity for completions, refurbishment and heavy maintenance work scopes on large jet airframes,” said John Gillespie about the expansion.  At the company’s Chesterfield, St. Louis facility a fifth hangar, a leased building, is undergoing preparations to open for business in January 2019 adding a further 40, 000 square feet to the KSUS facility. 

More than 100 team members are currently being recruited across both sites to bolster the increased demand as the search for maintenance, interiors and paint expertise leads the recruitment drive. 

With facilities in Canada, the USA, & Singapore, global aviation services company Flying Colours Corp, brings over 25 years of experience to every facet of its business, which includes Green Completions, Interior Refurbishment & Modifications, Heavy Maintenance, Exterior Paint, Special Mission Modifications, and Avionics Installations. 

Flying Colours specializes in all mid to large sized business aircraft, including the Bombardier Global Express and Challenger families, Dassault Falcon, Beechcraft/Hawker and Gulfstream models. Flying Colours is an Authorized Service Facility for Bombardier and a Bombardier Preferred Completion Center.
