Flying Colours clears the air with ACA
ACA's purification components use ionisation purification to kill pathogens, including the novel coronavirus. Flying Colours believes there is no time like the present to team with the innovative firm.
ACA systems improve air quality and promote safety.

Flying Colours Corp has signed a distributor agreement with Savannah, Georgia-based Aviation Clean Air (ACA), to act as an installation facility for ACA needle point bi-polar ionisation (NPBI) components within the North American region. Flying Colours will be installing the systems on in-service aircraft at its Canadian and USA locations. Installation discussions with several Bombardier Learjet and Challenger aircraft operators are already in advanced stages, with other requests anticipated over the coming months for other business aircraft models.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many owners and operators think about air quality in the aircraft as the need to minimise the spread of the novel coronavirus, and enhance well-being in the air, is now imperative. We have teamed with ACA in response to customer demand for the installation of air systems that will keep them safe and improve air quality. We anticipate the ACA units are going to be extremely popular in refurbishments and completions going forward,” says Eric Gillespie, executive VP of Flying Colours.

The ACA purification components optimise a proactive ionisation purification system to kill pathogens, including the novel coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, in the air and on surfaces throughout the aircraft. The ACA component also eliminates odours and allergens to enhance the overall air quality and make air travel safer. Integrating with the existing environment control system the natural purification process works without producing harmful ozone or chemicals to circulate clean air throughout the aircraft. The components are easy to install and have minimal maintenance requirements making it popular for aircraft of all sizes.

“We are very pleased to add Flying Colours Corp. to our distributor portfolio. It has a great reputation and is known for anticipating and responding to its client needs. As more and more aircraft owners want to have purer, cleaner cabin air, we are signing agreements with companies we know will work hard on our behalf and support customers in their quest for clean air. Its great to have Flying Colours on board with us,” adds Howard Hackney, ACA managing member.
