Six large jets join Clay Lacy charter fleet
Clay Lacy Aviation continues to expand its charter fleet to meet unprecedented demand for private aviation services in three key US markets: the East Coast, and northern and southern California markets.
The Gulfstream G550 will serve the southern California market.

Clay Lacy Aviation has received certification for six wi-fi equipped aircraft to enter service, bolstering capabilities in the New York, San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles markets.

The aircraft, which entered service in the first two quarters of 2022, serve a variety of missions and private travel needs. They include a Global 5000, two Legacy 600s, a Falcon 900EX EASy, a Gulfstream G550 and G650ER.

“With additional aircraft to choose from, Clay Lacy is supplying greater charter availability to meet the private travel needs of its customers,” says VP owner and charter services Elizabeth Nagy. “Whether people need to travel across the country or overseas, they will have more options to experience Clay Lacy's legendary charter jet service, with the personal touches and professionalism for which our flight teams are renowned.”

Located in the northeastern US, the Falcon 900EX EASy seats 14 passengers and has beds for four, and benefits from an ultra-quiet environment with a thermal-acoustic insulation system. Also on the East Coast, the Global 5000 is an ultra-long range jet that seats 13 and sleeps six. It has a three-zone cabin with a forward double-club for meetings, a centre cabin zone with a four seat dining table and an aft-cabin with divan and club.

The Gulfstream G650ER operates in Silicon Valley at San Jose International airport for domestic and international charter destinations. The most spacious cabin in its class, the G650ER seats 16 passengers and flies up to 7,500 nm at close to the speed of sound. A sophisticated interior and a wide range of electronic entertainment and communication options serve the charter customers.

Three aircraft are entering service for the southern California market. Two Legacy 600s, each seating up to 13 people and sleeping six, have a range of 3,090 nm and come equipped with a full-sized galley. And a Gulfstream G550 provides ultra-long range capabilities, with seating for up to 16 passengers, who are connected to homes and offices with high-speed wi-fi communications.
