Peterborough-based Flying Colours has been named an authorized service facility for Bombardier Global 5000 and Global 6000 business aircraft.
Bombardier gave the MRO and completions specialist “heavy” status to enable it to work on the large-cabin jets.
Meanwhile, Flying Colours’ Chesterfield Missouri facility, already a heavy ASF, was named the top service centre in North America by Bombardier at its NBAA display on Wednesday.
“It is the first time we have been eligible for this so we are hugely honoured to win, especially given the intense competition in the North American market,” said Troy Funk, vice president of technical services.
The Missouri facility was acquired by Flying Colours several years ago and it became a Bombardier ASF in 2012.
