Embraer Expands Clay Lacy Service Center Authorization to Include Legacy and Praetor Aircraft
Embraer expands Clay Lacy Aviation’s Service Center Authorization to include Legacy and Praetor business jets. The company’s FAA Part 145 Repair Station at Van Nuys Airport (KVNY) now provides factory-trained maintenance, repair and overhaul services for Embraer Legacy 450, 500, 600, 650 models; Praetor 500 and 600 jets; and Phenom 100 and 300 aircraft.
Established as the first Embraer authorized service center on the West Coast in 2009, Clay Lacy has performed over 10,000 hours of work on the Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 models and recently completed some of the first Phenom 10-year inspections.
Clay Lacy’s new 152,000-square-foot service center provides heavy airframe inspections, engine and APU maintenance, and light line maintenance. Onsite capabilities include a multi-million-dollar parts inventory, warranty administration and a Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR). Clay Lacy is a long-time authorized dealer for Rockwell-Collins, including Pro Line Fusion® avionics, Honeywell, Garmin, and other leading avionics manufacturers. The service center provides avionics, Wi-Fi connectivity, cabin entertainment, and interior modifications and upgrades. Additionally, custom interior design and refurbishing services are available at Clay Lacy’s onsite interior shop. Clients can conveniently minimize downtime by pairing interior upgrades with scheduled maintenance events.
24/7 mobile AOG support is also available from Van Nuys Airport, John Wayne Orange County Airport (KSNA), McClellan-Palomar Airport (KCRQ) and Seattle’s Boeing Field (KBFI).
“We have been an authorized service center for Phenom aircraft since 2009 and are honored by Embraer’s continued trust and support,” says 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 specialized tooling to provide superior service.”
