Clay Lacy Aviation has added seven aircraft to its growing fleet at three Southern California airports in the USA in order to meet the growing demand for corporate aviation services and to provide access to the most diverse selection of private aircraft available for charter in the region.

The Global Express, Gulfstream G550, Falcon 900EX EASy, Phenom 300 and Hawker 800XP will be available at Los Angeles’ Van Nuys Airport. The Phenom 300 arrived from the factory at the end of December 2015 and features Embraer’s latest enhancements and technologies. The aircraft offers seating for eight passengers, a full lavatory with vanity, satellite telephone and a high-speed wi-fi connection.

The 10-passenger Global Express recently received an all-new interior and exterior paint scheme. Its well-appointed cabin features three separate seating areas and a stateroom that can be converted into a bedroom.

At John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, customers will have access to the seven-passenger LearJet 60XR, while at McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, San Diego County, Clay Lacy has added a Learjet 60 to its fleet.

“Our clients are showing continued excitement about owning and flying business aircraft,” said Veriar Collins, Clay Lacy Aviation vice president of charter and managed services.

“Business aircraft save valuable time, enhance security, increase productivity and help our clients succeed in a highly competitive marketplace.”
