Los Angeles-area aviation services provider Clay Lacy Aviation has opened a new 24/7 aircraft MRO facility for its Part 145 repair station at Van Nuys Airport. The complex occupies more than seven acres and features a 66,000-sq-ft hangar and 86,000 sq ft of office and shop space, including an expanded parts and rotables department, interior design suite, battery refurbishment center, client offices, and conference room.
It will provide light and heavy maintenance and repair; avionics and cabin entertainment upgrades and installations; cabin design, modifications, and refurbishment; as well as AOG support for the Southwest U.S. Employing more than 70 technicians, the repair station is able to maintain business jets from Gulfstream, Bombardier, Dassault, and Hawker, and is an authorized service center for the Embraer Phenom 100 and 300.
“We leveraged our 50 years of aviation experience to create the best one-stop aircraft maintenance center in Southern California,” said Ed Mirzakhanian, the company’s vice president for maintenance and business development. “Our new Van Nuys facility can accommodate as many as 15 large-cabin aircraft, and the needs of every client, from general inspections to airframe repair, domestic and international Wi-Fi installations to cabin management systems, and complete interior upgrades.”
