Challenger 850s enter service in Middle East and Russia
ExecuJet Middle East has taken delivery of a Challenger 850 completed by Ontario-based Flying Colours Corp on behalf of a private customer.

ExecuJet Middle East has taken delivery of a Challenger 850 completed by Ontario-based Flying Colours Corp on behalf of a private customer. "We have already experienced some success with our Execliner CRJ conversion in the Middle Eastern market, but this is the first time we have delivered a green Challenger 850 to a customer there," says Sean Gillespie, director of sales and completions for Flying Colours. "We anticipate this will be the first of many as we understand Middle Eastern clients prefer larger aircraft."

The recently finished aircraft featured luxurious and elegant interior furnishings, including euro-burl veneer, customised gold inlays, and fine leathers and fabrics. A full selection of in-flight connectivity includes the installation of True North Simphone broadband Wi-Fi capability and iPad functionality.

A second completed Challenger 850 was delivered to Russian aviation business Ak Bars Aero in late July. Both aircraft were certified into the specific countries in conjunction with the respective operators.
