Flying Colours, the North American maintenance, refurbishment and completions company that does business in the Middle East, has confirmed the appointment of Trevor Knox as Director of Maintenance. Knox, who takes up the position with immediate effect, is based at the company's Peterborough, ON.

Knox is responsible for administering and managing all day-to-day operations relating to maintenance activities that Flying Colours undertakes at the Peterborough facility. In addition, Knox will be responsible for further developing the capabilities of the growing, dynamic, maintenance team, implementing progressive training for the engineers, and ensuring that the AS9100 quality standards, which Flying Colours already holds, are adhered to.

Knox joins the company following a 24-year career within the maintenance sector of the aerospace industry. His extensive knowledge of Bombardier aircraft, holding endorsements for the Challenger and Global types, also contributed to his selection. “We’re very pleased that Trevor has taken on the role. His experience across a range of aircraft models that we regularly maintain brings real added value to the business,” said Tony Barrett, Senior VP Flying Colours, about the appointment. Knox’s customer facing experience also positions him well for the customized nature of Flying Colours business, which places a strong focus on client satisfaction.

“With the upcoming ADS B-Out mandate, and our growing customer base for maintenance services, we are going to be increasingly busy, and I’m looking forward to the challenge. There are a limited number of companies that can offer such high standards of light to heavy maintenance, as well as interior upgrades and avionic enhancements all under one roof. Flying Colours is one of them which is one of the reasons I’m excited to be a part of the mix. I plan to maintain and improve these standards, as well as contributing to the company’s continued growth,” said Knox about his appointment.
