Flying Colours brings its expertise to Asia – five newly completed Challenger 850s headed East


Flying Colours Corp, a global aviation service company, is visiting Asian Aerospace at WorldExpo-Asia in Hong Kong this week, hard on the heels of a successful delivery of a Challenger 850 to the Asian region.


The North American based company is getting ready to deliver its second Bombardier Challenger 850 into the region by the end of March. This luxuriously equipped aircraft, acquired by a private Chinese individual, will be delivered to mainland China.


Its first completed 14-seat executive configured Challenger 850, delivered green to Flying Colours in May 2010 was handed over to the customer at the end of this past year.  (See photo attached)  It is being managed and operated by Hong Kong based private jet company Metrojet. The aircraft features a premium digital cabin management system, including custom touch screen cabin controls and large cabin LCD displays. Flying Colours also installed a True North Global broadband system, enabling clients to enjoy high-speed connectivity inflight.


“We are very eager to increase our activity in Asia,” said Eric Gillespie, Director, Flying Colours. “The market for VIP completions and conversions has shifted and we are seeing an active growth in the area. Today, up to 75% of our new green completions are going overseas and China is leading the way. It is our first time as visitors at the Asian Aerospace event and we are looking forward to visiting with the many established companies represented at the show.”


Hand in hand with its growing international client base, Flying Colours has appointed specialist boutique aviation PR Company Emerald Media to help raise its profile. Based in the UK, Emerald has offices in Germany, Spain and the USA and through its LeadingEdge Communications arm, is represented in Asia and Australia.
