Flying Colours has recently completed and delivered its first Global Express refurbishment and maintenance project for a Malaysian customer. It is the fifth Global Express refurbishment project Flying Colours has completed in the last twelve months and reflects the company’s developing focus on this aircraft type.
The latest project was completed and delivered to a Malaysian client in early July 2012. The completed interior underwent a full refurbishment of all interior soft goods, woodwork, and numerous IFE upgrades which focused on modernizing the aircraft with iPad holders, and a Honeywell iPod dock.
A particularly unique element of the refurbishment was the modification of the aft cabin to enable the installation of a permanent custom-made bed in the aft cabin which is located opposite two new single seats and next to a customized side-ledge. This was the first time such a modification was undertaken by Flying Colours on a Global Express and was accomplished under a new STC, which will be validated by the Malaysian authorities.
