Clay Lacy Aviation is More Than an Aircraft Service Provider, the Company is an Experienced Aircraft Operator

Founded in 1968 by a living legend, Clay Lacy Aviation is one of the world’s premier aircraft charter and management companies. Over four decades ago, Clay Lacy Aviation introduced the private jet to the West Coast. Today, the company delivers a complete spectrum of aviation services, including private jet charter, aircraft management, aircraft maintenance and repair, avionics installations, interior completions, sales and brokerage, and aerial cinematography.

In addition, Clay Lacy provides a unique view of aviation operations to its clients, as the company has owned, operated and managed small, medium and large cabin aircraft worldwide for more than 43 years.

“Our sales team has nearly 50 years of aircraft transactional experience and is well-versed in the complex new and pre-owned private aircraft market,” says Tila Silva, International Acquisitions Expert with Clay Lacy. “Whether a client is buying or selling an aircraft, our industry expertise and reputation for building strong, long-term relationships provides our clientele a level of service unique within the industry.

“Our priorities are safety and customer satisfaction,” Silva continues. “We embrace our work with character, pride and the utmost respect for all who come our way.”  

Based at Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington, Clay Lacy has been a member of the National Aircraft Resale Association (NARA) since 2004.  

“Over the past eight years, we have enjoyed many benefits of being an active member of NARA,” Silva says. “The semiannual meetings are very interesting and informative, with speakers from the aviation industry and others that are not directly involved in aviation, but present topics of interest. The major benefits of being a member is getting a chance to meet in person all of the other dealer/brokers and the associate members. It affords all of us a great opportunity to network with each other and to get to know the individual members on a personal level.”
