Flying Colours Corporation, based in Peterborough, Canada has broken ground on the first phase of a $3.5 million expansion plan to its facilitate which specialises in providing maintenance and completions services to business jets.

The first part of the plan will increase Flying Colours footprint at its Canadian headquarters. With the steel framework now in place, 20,000 square feet is being added to one of the company’s existing three hangars. The existing hangar is currently accommodating a long term project that will see eight Bombardier CRJ 200 regional airliners converted to 16 seat corporate shuttle configurations.

Phase one is due for completion in the first quarter of 2014.

Sean Gillespie, executive vice president of Flying Colours, said:“This is a major step in the application of our future strategy for Flying Colours Corp. We have built an extremely robust business, with an international client base that values our full service offering in terms of completions and maintenance.”

“We have quite simply run out of space to accommodate all the requests received so have implemented this extensive development project to accommodate current and future work load. When phases one to three are complete the additional hangar space will enable us to work on the Airbus ACJ fleet, Boeing Business Jet family and the state-of-the-art CSeries models. We are adding a total of 65, 000 square feet to our facility and are very excited about the new possibilities,” added Gillespie.

Phases two and three, which are expected to complete in 2015, will incorporate further additional hangar space of approximately 45,000 square feet and will incorporate an additional large cabin hangar.

Once the final phase of building is completed at Peterborough, the company will explore the options for expansion at their US facility.

Flying Colours Corp. and newly renamed sister company Flying Colours Corp. KSUS  (formerly JetCorp Tech Services Inc) will be exhibiting at this year’s NBAA 2013.
