Beechcraft Corporation announced today at the annual Sun ’n Fun International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland, Fla., that it has appointed Cutter Aviation in Phoenix and Flying Colours Corp. in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada, as authorized service centers (ASCs) for the company’s King Air, Baron and Bonanza products.
Cutter Aviation, founded in 1928, has a long affiliation with Beechcraft brands and currently operates a network of eight locations in seven major cities in the Southwest. Its facility at Phoenix Sky Harbor (KPHX) is a full-service, fixed-base operation that joins two other Cutter locations that already serve as ASCs: Albuquerque, N.M., (KABQ) for all Beechcraft products and McKinney, Texas, (KTKI) for Beechcraft’s piston line.
Established in 1989, Flying Colours is based in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada (CYPQ) and is globally recognized for providing maintenance, repair, paint, refurbishment and modifications. Flying Colours has extensive experience with the Beechcraft product line and is a good addition to the company’s customer-focused ASC network.
Headquartered in Wichita, Kan., the company’s Global Customer Support (GCS) organization is dedicated to improving the value of both Hawker and Beechcraft aircraft by employing products and services to simplify aircraft ownership, reduce operating cost and increase resale value. GCS is comprised of five functional groups that include Support Plus (cost predictability/warranty programs), Hawker Beechcraft Parts & Distribution (genuine factory parts), Hawker Beechcraft Services (factory-owned service centers), Technical Support (Field Support Representatives, Hot Line specialists and Technical Publications) and Global Mission Support (government business and special mission maintenance / training support).
