Touching Bases: Clay Lacy, Joe Clark Buy Flight Center at BFI
A fixture at Van Nuys (Calif.) Airport (VNY) for decades, Clay Lacy Aviation now has a second location. Together with Joe Clark, CEO of Seattle-based winglet pioneer Aviation Partners (though that company is not involved in the deal), Lacy has acquired the former Flight Center at Seattle Boeing Field (BFI) and renamed it the Clay Lacy Flight Center. Terms were not disclosed. Lacy said, “We’re going to keep all the good things about the Flight Center, including its great catering, spacious ramp area and 70,000 sq ft of hangar space, but we’re going to introduce a lot more services.” Those services include aircraft management and charter, aircraft sales and full maintenance capability.
