Clay Lacy Aviation provides comprehensive maintenance, repair, and overhaul services, including full-suite avionics installations, system upgrades and modifications. The company recently completed its 10th installation of the Garmin G1000® NXi avionics suite at their FAA Part 145 Repair Station at Van Nuys Airport (KVNY), where Clay Lacy is an authorized Garmin dealer and has operated an Embraer Authorized Service Center since 2009.

Eddy Diaz, Avionics Manager at Clay Lacy, commented: “This milestone demonstrates the range of our continuously expanding capabilities in supporting Embraer owners and operators. The G1000 NXi configuration is the result of Garmin continuously upgrading its systems with an even more user friendly and intuitive interface improving situational awareness and capabilities.”

The 10th installation took place on an Embraer Phenom 100, but the Embraer-authorized facilities at Van Nuys and McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad/San Diego (KCRQ) offer MRO and upgrade services for the full range of business jets including the Embraer Legacy, Praetor and Phenom lines. Clay Lacy offers Embraer operators services including airframe inspections, AOG support, parts sales, rotable service, avionics installation and repairs, and interior refurbishment and upgrades. Clay Lacy has a team of factory-trained Embraer experts including A&P technicians, IA-qualified inspectors, and an onsite FAA-designated airworthiness representative. 

Dan Lind, Senior Director Aviation Sales and Marketing for Garmin, said: “The G1000 NXi flight deck offers a host of leading-edge capabilities to help pilots fly safer and reach their destinations easier. From enhanced guidance in visual flight conditions to SurfaceWatch™ runway monitoring technology, the G1000 NXi is a comprehensive upgrade for any operator. We’re proud to work with MROs like Clay Lacy to bring the industry’s most trusted avionics to pilots and aircraft owners who will undoubtedly benefit from the faster and more modernized feature set found in the G1000 NXi system.”  

Clay Lacy serves as an authorized Garmin dealer, with manufacturer-trained technicians and direct access to Garmin field service representatives. Garmin has been instrumental in changing how business aircraft are flown, recently delivering its 25,000th integrated flight deck since launching the G1000 avionics suite in 2003. Clay Lacy also offers the G1000 NXi upgrade to Beechcraft King Air operators.
