Clay Lacy Aviation’s Embraer service centre authorisation has been expanded with the addition of the Legacy and Praetor models. The company first gained authorised service centre status in 2009, and its work on Phenom 100 and 300 models exceeds more than 10,000 hours. This includes some of the first Phenom 10-year inspections, performed recently.
Clay Lacy’s FAA Part 145 repair station at Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles, California, now provides factory-trained MRO services for Legacy 450, 500, 600 and 650 models; Praetor 500 and 600 jets; and Phenom 100 and 300 aircraft.
The new 152,000ft² (14,121m²) service centre provides heavy airframe inspections, engine and APU maintenance and light line maintenance. On-site capabilities include a multi-million-dollar parts inventory, warranty administration and a Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR).
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 – as well as for Honeywell, Garmin and other avionics manufacturers. Additionally, custom interior design and refurbishment services are available at its on-site interior shop. Clients can minimize downtime by pairing interior upgrades with scheduled maintenance events.
The company also offers 24/7 mobile AOG support from four US sites.
“We have been an authorised service centre for Phenom aircraft since 2009, and are honoured by Embraer’s continued trust and support,” said Ed Mirzakhanian, Clay Lacy’s vice president 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.”
