Flying Colours, the maintenance, refurbishment and completion specialist, has been selected by
Conair to modify the interior of six Q400MRs. These aircraft will then join the French Sécurité Civile air service for fire-fighting missions, following a contract signed on 15th January by the Interior Minister
Gérard Collomb and Conair.

Flying Colours will be proposing four different layouts which can be configured according to the
mission: the passenger transport version can accommodate up to 64 people, and 19 for the
mixed passenger/freight version, the cargo version is intended to carry up to 9 tonnes of
equipment, while the medical evacuation version will include up to six stretchers.

The aircraft will also be equipped with a customized Inmarsat Cobham Aviator 700 system, which will enable flexible communications and connectivity via the Inmarsat network that can be adapted for each aircraft mission. They will also feature a modernised version of Conair's retardant/water
airdrop system.

The first aircraft will be inducted at Flying Colours facility in St. Louis (MO) in March and should be delivered in summer 2019.
