Flying Colours Aviation is located at Townsville Airport's Northern Australian
Centre of Excellence (NAACEX), in Queensland Australia.
Townsville is the forth largest city in Queensland with a population
of approximately 195,000. An average of 300 of sunshine per
year ensures a stable climate with average day temperatures
of 28.9°c (84°F), night temperatures of 19.8c (67°F) and 61%
humidity makes it a perfect location to take advantage
of the natural climate for aircraft painting. Doing so
means we do not have the expense and impact
associated with full climate controlled facilities,
naturally minimising our environmental footprint.
Our geographical location means there is an
extremely low risk from natural disasters such as
volcano's, earthquakes or other weather events.
With its close proximity to Cairns and Brisbane
International airports, Townsville Airport is either an
existing revenue port or short ferry flight away for
domestic and international airline operators, opening the doors for back to back repaint
programs without the expense and network impact of costly ferry flights to a non-revenue port.
Townsville Airport is also unique, in that it is a joint user airport shared with the Royal Australian
Air Force (RAAF) and Australian Army. The Australian Defence Force (ADF) and other international
defence allies can leverage the infrastructure and support available at RAAF Townsville while having aircraft repainted at FCA.
With one of the seven natural wonders of the world at our door step, The Great Barrier Reef is a constant reminder to us of the responsibility we have to ensure our operations are carried out in the most environmentally responsible manner possible, protecting the reef so it can be enjoyed by generations to come.
