Mexico’s Civil Aviation Agency, AFAC, has authorised Clay Lacy Aviation’s FAA Part 145 repair stations in San Diego and Los Angeles, California, to offer maintenance services on Mexican-registered aircraft.
The AFAC approval authorises Clay Lacy to provide full maintenance services on business jets at its Van Nuys Airport (KVNY) and McClellan-Palomar Airport, San Diego (KCRQ) locations. AFAC is responsible for civil aviation safety throughout Mexico and for Mexican citizens and aircraft traveling abroad.
“This authorisation allows even more business aircraft operators to take advantage of Clay Lacy’s outstanding MRO services and facilities,” said Henry Hage, director of aircraft maintenance operations, Clay Lacy. “We look forward to the opportunity to serve Mexican-registered aircraft owners at a convenient location and allow them to enjoy the benefits of factory-trained experts and more than 50 years of experience of maintaining every make and model of business jet.”
The AFAC authorisation adds the large number of Mexican-registered aircraft as potential Clay Lacy customers to an existing list of international authorisations. Clay Lacy provides MRO services for Europe-based and Canadian-registered business jets, as well as USA-based aircraft.
Clay Lacy has full MRO facilities in California and Connecticut, performing light line maintenance, heavy airframe inspections, jet engine and APU maintenance, avionics and cabin entertainment upgrades and repairs, and complete interior modifications and repair services. It offers more than US$3.4m in parts, warranty administration and AOG mobile jet support teams.
