Flying Colours delivers first CRJ ExecLiner to Sharjah
Flying Colours in Canada delivers the first special mission CRJ ExecLiner to Eagle Aviation in Sharjah.
Flying Colours, a Canadian-based completion and refurbishment centre, has delivered its first special mission Bombardier CRJ ExecLiner to Eagle Aviation in Sharjah.
The CRJ Execliner is a converted version of Bombardier’s CRJ200 regional airliner, which based on the Canadair Challenger business jet. Flying Colours has a history of converting the aircraft, which John Gillespie, CEO of Flying Colours, described in a video for Bombardier at NBAA 2011.
The CRJ Execliner was delivered to Eagle Aviation at the beginning of November 2013, following a refurbishment process of four months and incorporated complete Flying Colours supplemental type certification.
The interior of the aircraft has been outfitted with three separate zones that can be adapted for each specific charter request. The newly-fitted aircraft can offer VIP charter, medevac options or a combination of the two.
Sean Gillespie executive vice president, Flying Colours said: “We are already well known for our ExecLiner VIP conversions of which we’ve now completed eleven.”
“However this latest ExecLiner required a completely different style of modification. It demonstrates the flexibility of our team and our adaptability to client specific requirements. We anticipate that we will be making more of these special mission modifications and are already in discussions with a number of clients for these very specific types of interior, added Gillespie.
“The CRJ ExecLiner conversions make a really good option for operators or owners looking to own a specially modified aircraft without the expense of buying new and our reliability means they can expect a re-modelled aircraft on time and within budget.”
