Flying Colours delivers Challenger 850 to Lily Jet of China

Flying Colours recently delivered
its fourth Chinese registered aircraft, a Bombardier Challenger 850 business
jet to Shenyang
based air charter company Lily Jet last month. The aircraft left the Peterborough in Canada facility and arrived at the
Lily Jet base on 29 November.

“The Lily Jet aircraft is
extremely well equipped and the interior is tastefully decorated,” said Sean
Gillespie, director, Completion Sales and Management at Flying Colours. The
completion included a state-of-the-art cabin management system, broadband
enabling WiFi, a high definition camera system, a mid cabin custom desk, and
coloured LED lighting in the restrooms.”  Flying Colours worked directly
with Lily Jet to have the aircraft fully certified with the CAAC (Civil
Aviation Administration of China). A further three 850s destined for China are currently undergoing completion at the
Peterborough and Chesterfield, Missouri
facilities. These are anticipated to be ready for delivery in 2012.

The 17-seat VIP configured
aircraft was completed at the Flying Colours Chesterfield, USA facility
on schedule.

“Our implementation of LEAN technology management systems has
increased our efficiency and ensures clients receive their aircraft on time and
to budget. This is essential in the current economic climate as business’ are
reliant on their aircraft to raise income,” commented Gillespie.

This latest delivery follows
the refurbishment of a similar two Bombardier Challenger 850 business jets,
which were delivered via Flying Colours to BAA Jet Management Ltd’s Shenzhen
base earlier this year.

Flying Colours recently
announced plans to open a base of operation in the Chinese region that will
focus on interior refurbishment for a range of mid to large sized business
aircraft types including the Global Express series, Challenger types, Dassault
Falcon, Embraer, Hawker and Gulfstream models.  The structure and
logistics for the new base are expected to be announced in late 2012.
