The Guernsey Director of Civil Aviation has approved Flying Colours to carry out maintenance work on business aircraft registered on the territory’s 2-Reg registry. A full range of regular and line maintenance work can be undertaken at Flying Colours’ headquarters in Peterborough, Canada. The approval was given on 28 October 2021.
Flying Colours is also approved to undertake continuing airworthiness and maintenance work on a wide set of airframes, including all those listed under its Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) approval. These include Bombardier, Gulfstream and Dassault models, amongst others. This validation also grants Flying Colours the privilege to sign Certificates of Release to Service for 2-Reg aircraft, which it said supports a faster re-entry to service after maintenance work is completed.
“More and more operators are using the 2-Reg aircraft registry for its efficient services, streamlined approach, and ease of obtaining personalised registration marks for their aircraft, so we are delighted to have attained this approval,” said Eric Gillespie, executive vice president, Flying Colours. “We can now support even more aircraft in their maintenance needs, including the 2-Reg aircraft falling under our TCCA approvals. For customers listed on this registry and operating in Europe or North America, they now have another choice in terms of maintenance services. For reduced downtime interiors, avionics upgrades or exterior paintwork services can be conducted in parallel with the maintenance. That is very attractive to many owners, particularly in the current dynamic business aviation landscape.”
This latest approval adds to the existing broad range of maintenance approvals that Flying Colours has achieved. Current approvals include CAAC, Cayman Islands, GACA, FAA, EASA, the Isle of Man, the State of Qatar and Transport Canada. These certifications enable the business to offer ongoing services to private aircraft entered into these registries.
