Embraer has expanded Clay Lacy Aviation's service centre authorisation to include Legacy and Praetor business jets. Established as the first authorised service centre on the US west coast in 2009, Clay Lacy has performed over 10,000 hours of work on the Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 models, and recently completed some of the first Phenom 10-year inspections. The company's FAA Part 145 repair station at Van Nuys airport provides factory-trained maintenance, repair and overhaul services for Embraer Legacy 450, 500, 600, 650 models, Praetor 500 and 600 jets, and Phenom 100 and 300 aircraft.
Clay Lacy's new 152,000 sq ft service centre provides heavy airframe inspections, engine and APU maintenance and light line maintenance. Onsite capabilities include a multi-million-dollar parts inventory, warranty administration and a Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR). 24/7 mobile AOG support is also available from Van Nuys airport, John Wayne Orange County airport, McClellan-Palomar airport and Seattle's Boeing Field.
The service centre also provides avionics, wi-fi connectivity, cabin entertainment and interior modifications and upgrades. Clay Lacy is a long-time authorised dealer for Rockwell-Collins, including Pro Line Fusion avionics, Honeywell, Garmin and other leading avionics manufacturers. Additionally, custom interior design and refurbishing services are available at Clay Lacy's onsite interior shop. Clients can conveniently minimise downtime by pairing interior upgrades with scheduled maintenance events.
“We have been an authorised service centre for Phenom aircraft since 2009, and are honoured by Embraer's continued trust and support,” says Ed Mirzakhanian, Clay Lacy's VP of maintenance. “We are excited to support all Embraer owners and these outstanding aircraft with our growing team of factory-trained experts, and continued investment in specialised tooling to provide superior service.”
