May 29, 2012 -- It is with great sadness that Flying Colours has to inform you of the sudden passing of a dear friend and colleague, Paul J. Heaver, Vice President Completions & Modifications of their USA subsidiary JetCorp Technical Services. Paul passed away suddenly on Sunday, May 20, 2012.
“Our thoughts, prayers, and support are with Paul’s wife, Jacqueline and daughters Paris and Alicia. Paul’s limitless passion for our industry and his tireless commitment to his profession will leave a lasting impression on all of us. His contributions, kindness, sense of humor, and professionalism will be deeply missed,” said Flying Colours President and CEO John Gillespie.
Over the past few years Flying Colours and its US subsidiary Jetcorp have grown dramatically. Paul made a significant contribution to that growth. He joined Flying Colours in 2007 as Director of Business Development and was promoted to VP of Completions at JetCorp 18 months ago. He has been a stalwart in the industry for over 25 years, working with the likes of de Havilland and Bombardier prior to joining Flying Colours.
“Paul was hugely instrumental in the success of our Bombardier CRJ conversion program and took a prominent role in our green Challenger 850 completions. Furthermore, under his leadership the completions arm of JetCorp has developed into a sizeable and highly reputable organization. This is his legacy,” added John Gillespie.
