Flying Colours achieves CAAC approval
Flying Colours is the first Canadian MRO company to achieve a full CAAC maintenance approval.
Flying Colours, the Canada-based maintenance, completions and refurbishments company, has announced that it has become the first Canadian MRO to receive complete airframe and specialized service CCAR 145 MOC.
The certificate, which was awarded on 10 January 2014, is awarded to foreign companies that already hold their own national CAA approvals and complements the growing list of approvals held by the Peterborough based business.
The approval enables Flying Colours Corp. to conduct full airframe inspections, repairs and scheduled maintenance, along with specialised services including sheet metal work, composite repairs, paintwork, interior completions and modifications on Chinese registered aircraft at its expanding Peterborough, Ontario facility
Glenn Williams, VP Maintenance for Flying Colours Corp, said: “We have received an increased amount of requests from our Chinese client base as many of the customers for whom we’ve already completed aircraft, now want us to work on other aircraft they own. Most of these aircraft are B-Registered so the approval is very important for developing future business for Flying Colours.”
“This is a great achievement for Flying Colours Corp,” added Williams. “China is a significant business aviation region that continues to grow. With our new approval we are well placed to support this expanding market at a crucial time. Being the first Canadian MRO to achieve complete airframe and specialized approval also speaks volumes about our international ambitions and expansion plans.”
In addition to the Peterborough-based activity, Flying Colours provides mobile maintenance work in China and the new approval supports this growing part of its business activity.
