Flying Colours Corp. completes contemporary Gulfstream G650 refurbishment

The Flying Colours’ team have completed the refurbishment of a Gulfstream G650 business jet at their Peterborough facility in Canada following a paint job earlier in the year at the same facility.

The paint work of this Gulfstream G650 fuselage is finished in a sparkling pearl/mica Diamond Mine basecoat surface combined with an intricate design incorporating curving stripes and complicated swirling patterns. 

Flying Colors Corp. used a specialty basecoat-clearcoat polyurethane paint incorporating translucent pearl and mica granules that generate a crystal-sparkling effect that was applied after the priming process to achieve striking results.

G650 Interior

With regards to the interior refurbished on this particular visit to the Peterborough facility, the individual seats in the cabin were covered with a new customer-selected pearl-colored leather, and the seat backs finished with a contrasting textured material following a strip down of six single seats, two double seats to the frames and rebuilt with new foam cushions, sanded and painted.

The three-piece divan also followed the same process however was completed in a complementary pearl fabric, a trend which is now appearing in more refurnished and new completion of business jets.

Each seat incorporated a customized stitching pattern, while new seatbelt webbing completed the finish.

Throughout the cabin of the G650 business jet the sidewall panels and ledges were completed in leather to complete the look with the finished seating, and a new Ultraleather cabin curtain was custom manufactured and installed by Flying Colours Corp.

For the flooring the existing carpentry was fully removed and a smoked charcoal colored carpet was selected and fitted to contrast with the pearl leather seat tones.

The tones of cream and grey deliver a modern, chic look, balanced by dark veneer finishes on the bulkheads, galleys and side ledges.

Flying Colours Corp. Executive VP, Eric Gillespie commented:

“This aircraft had previously been painted by the Flying Colours crew, and the customer was so delighted that they brought it back for the interior work. Repeat business is the highest accolade we can be paid, and the gorgeous new interior is as breathtaking as the exterior.”

Flying Colors Corp. work on all types of airframes, and in the last year have worked on an increasing amount of Gulfstream models whose owners according to Flying Colors appreciate that we can offer interior, exterior, and maintenance work all at one location

Following this G650 refurbishment a second G650 arrived at the Peterborough workshop in October to undergo refurbishment further highlighting the company’s growing work on the American OEM aircraft types.
