Too Hin Wee is the new general manager of Flying Colours Corp Asia, which is based at Singapore’s Seletar Aerospace Park. The previous general manager, Paul Dunford, has been promoted to a new position as managing director of international operations, to support Flying Colours’ global strategy.
As general manager for Flying Colours Corp Asia, Singapore-born Hin Wee is responsible for providing overall leadership, overseeing daily operational standards, as well as determining vision and direction for the future. With the expansion of the Bombardier Aerospace Seletar facility, and the subsequent announcement of the renewal of Flying Colours contract to provide interior services, Hin Wee will also be responsible for increasing the Singapore team numbers in alignment with the OEM’s growth. Wee has some 20 years of aviation technical and maintenance experience, extensive knowledge of Bombardier Challenger and Global programs, and aviation project management experience.
“We will be working with Bombardier for at least the next five years which means we have to grow our team and operational capacity,” said Eric Gillespie, executive vice president at Flying Colours. “Hin Wee’s experience with Bombardier, the product and the customers makes him a valuable addition as we enter the next phase of expansion here in Asia.
“Asia has always been an important region for our company, and we are pleased to have developed a fantastic team here. With the planned facility expansion and the knowledge that many of the Bombardier fleet is coming up for 90- and 120-month checks, we anticipate we have a very busy time ahead and are confident that with Hin Wee at the helm we will continue to meet partner and customer expectations.”
“It is an exciting time for business aviation in Asia as the sector continues to advance,” said Hin Wee. “I’m looking forward to working with the Flying Colours senior executive team to develop successful strategy, implement new efficiencies and execute our business objectives for the region.”
Housed in the Bombardier Aerospace Singapore service center, the Flying Colours facility became fully operational in early 2015. The business offers interior services including preliminary inspections, removals and installation, repairs, modifications and refurbishment. The interior offerings complement Bombardier’s line and heavy maintenance service capabilities at the facility.
