What is the focus of your stand?
We plan to highlight our capabilities by
showcasing our latest VIP refurbishment
using the latest in 3D technology, courtesy
of AllWays3D. The Boeing 737 was delivered
earlier this year, and is used for private
charter. The 3D technology enables visitors
to move freely through each meticulously
refinished room and enjoy an eye-level
vantage point from locations including the
pilot’s seat and the dining area. Most notably,
the tour will give our customers a front seat
to before and after images, allowing us to
better illustrate how we can offer top-notch
solutions to update their aircraft interior.
How do these innovations respond
to current industry challenges?
The appeal of 3D technology is that clients
are able to engage in the tour as if they were
physically walking through the interior. We
recognized the added benefit for our charter
customer in connecting with their clientele, so
it became a multifaceted tool to allow us both
to reach our target audience. Furthermore,

MANAGER, AERIA LUXURY INTERIORS
the 3D engagement offers an entirely
unedited and detailed look at the aircraft,
allowing us to demonstrate the quality and
detail we have built our reputation on.
What trends are impacting you?
Aesthetically, a more residential atmosphere
has taken centre stage.
A growing number of clients
are expressing a desire
for a striking and stately
lounge offering the
level of comfort found
in their homes or luxury
yachts. Aircraft interior
designers are faced with
a number of certification
challenges to create the
desired space, and decompression
and weight factors often pose challenges.
However, through careful planning by our
highly experienced staff, and the use of
3D printing technology, Aeria experiences
little to no issues in these areas. Having
in-house 3D printing capabilities allows our
craftspeople to focus their efforts on
the quality of the products.
What are you focussing on for
As we continue to build a strong catalogue of
successful completions programmes we are
looking at ways the market is improving in
either technology or design, so we can
incorporate the latest advancements
into our portfolio of services.
As business aviation becomes more
digitised, Flying Colours plans to attract
more connectivity customers – and so
will detail how Ka-band, Ku-band and
GoGo Avance L3 and 5 installations are
part of its daily workscope. With the
North American ADS-B Out mandate
due in January 2020, the avionics
experts will also explain why operators
and owners should focus on booking
the last few remaining slots to install
the necessary equipment.
To support capacity growth, the
company is currently expanding the
footprint at both its North American
facilities. Flying Colours will invite new
and existing clients to discover more
about the full spectrum of services it
offers across all areas of maintenance,
refurbishment and completions.
Marking 30 years in 2019, Flying
Colours will celebrate its experience in
special-mission modifications, interiors,
avionics, design engineering and
paintwork, and highlight how its flexible
approach emphasizes the benefits of
having combined workscopes completed
under one expanding roof.
