Our founder, Clay Lacy.
Entrepreneur, airline captain, military test pilot, air race champion, aviation record-setter and aerial cinematographer, Lacy has accumulated more hours flying jets than anyone on Earth. He has logged 50,000 flight hours in more than 300 aircraft types, set 29 world speed records and performed over 2500 film missions. While still a pilot at United in 1964, Lacy earned his Learjet rating and became the Learjet salesman for the western United States. Lacy leased a Learjet in 1968 and founded Clay Lacy Aviation, the first executive jet charter service west of the Mississippi.
