Clay Lacy Aviation has added a Gulfstream G650ER, a Dassault Falcon 7X and the east coast's first Pilatus PC-24 midsize jet for charter to its northeastern US fleet.
All three aircraft are based at Waterbury-Oxford airport, a short flight from Teterboro, White Plains, Farmingdale, Stewart, Newark and other local airports serving the greater New York City area. All three jets are equipped with wi-fi, satellite phone and other amenities. With cruising speeds approaching Mach 1, the ultra-long-range Gulfstream G650ER can quickly transport passengers up to 7,500 nm in quiet and luxury, while the Falcon 7X is ideal for transcontinental and transoceanic journeys. For destinations throughout much of the US and Canada, including airports where other business jets cannot land, the PC-24 is the solution.
“Our clients throughout the northeast can easily find the perfect jet for any journey,” says VP of charter services Veriar Collins-Jenkins. “Whether their flight is regional, transatlantic or worldwide, our growing fleet can accommodate their business or personal travel needs in the latest, most modern jet aircraft.”
Travelling up to Mach 0.925, the 16-passenger G650ER sleeps nine in three double and three single beds. The fully equipped forward galley features a refrigerator, ice drawer and sink, oven and microwave, coffee pot and Nespresso maker. The forward and aft lavatories feature granite sinks. Other amenities include Airshow moving map, Apple TV connection, external cameras, three monitors and power outlets at every seat.
The 7X can travel 5,590 nm at speeds up to Mach 0.80. The spacious cabin features executive chairs and divans, complemented by polished wood veneers and natural light throughout. The divans convert to beds which sleep four in comfort. Other amenities include Airshow moving map, Bluetooth audio, two large monitors and power outlets throughout the cabin. The full galley has conventional and microwave ovens, ice drawer, chiller and Nespresso coffeemaker. The aft passenger lavatory has a full vanity, and there is a forward lavatory for crew members.
With a nonstop range 2,000 nm, the PC-24 is the only business jet that can operate from even unpaved surfaces as short as 2,930 ft. On board this PC-24, the airy cabin has six executive chairs, upholstered in light-gray leather, four of which convert to beds. Tasteful, dark wood veneers add a further touch of elegance. Passengers will enjoy domestic high-speed wi-fi, international satellite phone, two iPads and Airshow moving map. Every seat has cabin environment controls, USB and power outlets. Additional amenities include a refreshment centre with chiller and coffee maker, as well as an enclosed lavatory with vanity.
