Flying Colours and CAE mark first joint project


Flying Colours Corp recently welcomed executives from CAE to its headquarters in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, to mark the start of a new business relationship between the two Canadian companies. In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Air Force 419 ‘City of Kamloops’ Squadron, CAE agreed to facilitate the repaint of one of the Hawk aircraft serving the NATO Flying Training in Canada program. During the visit, Flying Colours unveiled the CT-155 Hawk that it has painted in World War II commemorative livery (pictured), designed by artist Jim Belliveau.

“Flying Colours was identified by CAE as a high-quality, good-value provider of aircraft support services in Canada,” said Mike Greenley, vice president and general manager, CAE Canada. “We are proud to add the business to our pan-Canadian team of partners and sub-contractors who we work with across the country. As a native of Peterborough myself I am particularly pleased to begin a new business relationship with them.”

CAE has teamed with Draken International to bid a fleet of A4 Skyhawks to provide adversary and aggressor air training to the RCAF as part of the Contracted Airborne Training Services program. If CAE is successful in its bid, Flying Colours will provide MRO services to CAE.
