Clay Lacy Aviation of Van Nuys, Calif., has been named an Embraer-authorized service center for the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 jets in Southern California. Clay Lacy is an FAA Class III and IV certified repair station. Adam Elzinga, director of facilities, told AIN that the 80,000-sq-ft facility is ready to accommodate the newest aircraft in Clay Lacy’s maintenance line-up. The company is offering inspections, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, paint touchups and interior shop services for the Phenom 100 and 300. “We are excited to work with Embraer, whose creativity and experience brought the Phenom to the market in a timely manner, at a competitive price and with performance greater than originally specified,” said Clay Lacy, founder and CEO of the company. “We see this as an opportunity to strengthen our relationship with one of the premier aviation manufacturers in the world, since we already operate its aircraft.”
