Clay Lacy Aviation has added nine aircraft to its Part 135 charter certificate, opening more availability for charter customers in US locations and expanding the reach of its large and ultra-long range business jets.

Since Q2 2022, nine privately owned Gulfstream and Bombardier Challenger aircraft in the Northeast, Pacific Northwest and Southwestern US have joined the Clay Lacy private charter fleet.

“These aircraft allow us to meet client demand in key markets and follow our model of strategic, organic growth that is supported by continued improvements and investments in our FBO and MRO services,” says SVP commercial operations Joe Barber. “We continue to welcome premium privately owned aircraft, where we can guarantee the customer will receive a legendary aviation experience.”

The nine additions are: a Gulfstream G500 based at Bozeman Yellowstone airport, Montana; a Gulfstream GIVSP based at Waterbury-Oxford airport, Connecticut; a Challenger 300 based at Tacoma Narrows airport, Washington; a Gulfstream G650 and GIVSP based at John Wayne airport Orange County, California; a Gulfstream G450, GV, G550 and a Challenger 300 at Van Nuys airport, California.

Charter customers in the northeast US will be able to take advantage of Clay Lacy's expansion of its Oxford facilities, including the opening of a new FBO this winter that features 120,000 sq ft of hangar space with 29 ft tall hangar doors, private office suites with direct access to the hangar floor, covered auto parking and a certified carbon neutral facility. The Waterbury-Oxford airport provides access to Connecticut's longest general aviation runway, US customs and less congestion than other New York or Boston-adjacent airports.

“The steel structure has now gone vertical on our Oxford development,” says SVP FBO operations Buddy Blackburn. “We are actively accepting LOIs for hangar and office space in the new facility, scheduled to open this winter.”
