Flying Colours Corp. has delivered a reconfigured Falcon 2000LXS. The work was performed for a long-time customer and represents the twelfth aircraft project the Canadian owner has entrusted to Flying Colours in twenty years. A thirteenth project is already in the pipeline. The full scope of work included significant cabin layout modification, cabinetry refinishing, metal re-plating, and a new, hand-woven carpet installation.

The Flying Colours Corp. design engineering team reconfigured the aft cabin floorplan by replacing an existing four seat club format with a three-seat divan, flanked by new cabinets. Two existing seats from the front of the cabin were reupholstered, and relocated, opposite the divan. Four new production seats, featuring the same leather as the aft, were installed in in the front section.  Complementing the cabin’s neutral palette are newly finished wood veneers featuring a rich recon rosewood colour with a honey stain that perfectly complements the brushed nickel metal finishing. Side-ledges feature tablet stowage arms, with the overall design intended to maximize space to create a cabin that enables productivity or relaxation on long-haul flights. On completion certification services to obtain Supplemental Type Certificates from the Federal Aviation Authority and Transport Canada Civil Aviation were completed by the Flying Colours Corp. team.

Externally the fuselage was stripped back and repainted with a striking dual colour scheme - white on top, and a desert sand hue beneath - in the fully computerised, climate controlled paint shop which opened in March this year at Flying Colours Corp. Peterborough headquarters.

The aircraft, which is new to the owner, joins a private fleet.  “We’re always delighted when a long-term customer entrusts us with a new project. We’ve performed a dozen projects for this client over the last two decades, and their repeat business tells us we offer the range and depth of services that customers are looking for. Our ability to cover all aspects of the refurbishment from design engineering, to interior upgrades and exterior paintwork in a single location is very attractive for owners,” said Sean Gillespie, Executive VP.
