About Us

Who are we, and what do we do?

Flying Colours Aviation's core service is the complete painting and refinishing of exterior, cabin interior and components for civil and defence fixed and rotary wing aircraft.

We are an Australian family owned and operated company, with a successful track record in general aviation, corporate/VIP, airline and defence aircraft painting since 1985 in Australia and the United Kingdom.

The directors, senior management and staff have over 150 years combined experience in the refurbishment of aircraft.

We set the standard among other international providers with our approach to quality, safety, environment and ease of business. Our ability to manage challenging tasks, is equal to our ability to recover from unforeseen circumstances in the ever changing aviation landscape.  Our drive to continuously improve is a testament to our commitment for a successful outcome for our customers.

Our dedicated paint facility at Townsville Airport is capable of accommodating aircraft up to Boeing 757-200, and Hercules C-130J-30, with over 25 slots available per year.


FCA has the capacity and capability to complete one off, to large back to back fleet repaint programs with challenging deadlines and high expectations. Painting services for larger aircraft can be carried out at remote or customer facilities.

FCA currently holds an CASA Part 145 A1 Approval covering Boeing 737 (NG), A320 & Dash 8 aircraft families (100-400) enabling us to provide limited but beneficial engineering support co-currently such as filiform corrosion mapping and removal, flight control balancing, reweighs, NDT Inspections and more. Saving our customers valuable time and maximising potential flight revenue.
