What economic downturn? Clay Lacy Aviation (CLA) announced the highest growth in its managed-aircraft fleet this year since its founding more than 40 years ago, adding 14 aircraft during the first three quarters. “Aircraft owners today more than ever are looking to maximize the value of their aviation operations,” CLA president Brian Kirkdoffer said in explaining the uptick. The company also announced growth in its infrastructure, with the completion of a new 40,000-sq-ft hangar and offices at its Boeing Field  location in Seattle. “Our entire team is committed to providing complete fixed-base-operator services and passenger amenities to meet the needs of our customers,” said Clay Lacy, founder of the Van Nuys, Calif.-based company. CLA is sharing its recent success stories with NBAA attendees at Booth No. 2072.
