Seletar Airport, Singapore/13 July 2021– The Flying Colours Corp. Asia facility, based in Singapore, has completed its first cabin configuration change in a Bombardier Global demonstrating a sophisticated skill set that extends beyond traditional refurbishment. The project was completed at the Flying Colours Corp. PTE facility located within the Bombardier Singapore Service Centre at Seletar Airport before redelivery to the undisclosed private customer.
The customer requested that the mid-cabin credenza be replaced by a three-place divan and divan end cabinet. This project also marked the first collaboration of this type between Singapore and its sister location in St. Louis, Missouri. Leveraging the cabinet manufacturing know-how, the St. Louis team was tasked with the end cabinet build, which was then shipped to Singapore for varnishing and final installation. Building the cabinet required weekly status reviews between the two teams to mitigate production roadblocks and ensure design/build conformity.
“This project is a substantial step forward for Singapore’s service capability. The combination of Bombardier engineering and FCC’s manufacturing expertise will now allow full cabin reconfigurations to be offered to their in-region customers,” says Flying Colours Corp. PTE Managing Director, Paul Dunford.
To prepare itself to offer these expanded services and in conjunction with the Bombardier facility expansion, Flying Colours Corp. is growing both its facility and its workforce to better support expected growth in demand for interior repairs, reconfigurations, and refurbishments. The company is revising the facility layout to enhance workflow and efficiently incorporate new high-tech equipment. Recruitment activity has also been doubling workforce numbers
The enhanced workshop and workforce ensure owners in the Asian region have local access to the latest woodwork finishing techniques required for the flagship Bombardier Global 7500, as well as full repairs for existing Bombardier aircraft. This complements the full scope of preliminary inspections, repair work, modifications, and refurbishments, and now cabin reconfigurations already offered to complement Bombardier’s comprehensive line and heavy maintenance services.
