Meet Your Private Jet Crew

Your Pilots

Clay Lacy Aviation pilots build trusted relationships with aircraft owners, improving onboard experience as well as overall ownership experience. Plus, they are the best-trained in the industry, completing biannual flight training in state-of-the-art, full-motion simulators as well as annual international, extended overwater and onboard emergency training. They always fly your aircraft and fly together, so they’re in sync on every flight and can make the best decisions concerning your trip.

Cabin attendants are trained in corporate etiquette, food preparation and onboard safety.

Your InFlight Services Team

Behind every Clay Lacy Aviation Cabin Attendant is our Inflight Services team. In the skies and behind the scenes, our Inflight Services team ensures every flight you take meets your exacting expectations. On the ground, we’re working to ensure your aircraft is prepared, including arranging catering, preparing beds for overnights and stocking it with your favorite beverages, snacks and more. We routinely source a wide variety of specialty items, from floral arrangements and fine linens, to unique food items or specialty gifts, ready for expedited delivery to your aircraft. We even have our own culinary kitchen and wine cellar.

Our cabin attendants are expertly trained in corporate etiquette, onboard safety and in preparing delicious meals, sourced from fresh, local ingredients. They get to know you, your preferences and work seamlessly as an extension of your flying family. Your inflight experience will surprise and delight with a level of attention and flawless personal service unsurpassed in the industry.
