The Air Elite Network, backed by World Fuel Services, has now reached 80 members with the addition of three more FBOs.
California-based Clay Lacy Aviation, which recently renewed its fuel supply contract with WFS at its flagship Van Nuys Airport location, has now had its second FBO, at John Wayne-Orange County Airport, accepted as a member. The company, which was selected as one of two service providers at SNA last year, is currently operating from an existing FBO as it builds a new 42,000-sq-ft facility designed with Air Elite standards in mind. It will also have 110,000 sq ft of hangar space on 14 acres.
Two additional Jet Aviation locations—in Bozeman, Montana, and Scottsdale, Arizona, were also accepted into the group, whose members must maintain audited facility and service quality standards to maintain their status. Jet Aviation Bozeman is the closest full-service FBO to Yellowstone Park, Big Sky, and Paradise Valley. It features a conference room, pilot lounge with flight planning room, kitchenette, and concierge services, while the company’s Scottsdale location offers a modern facility with a full slate of amenities for passengers and crew alike in the Sonoran Desert.
