No one seems to want to answer any questions about Clay Lacy....

Anyone care to share some insight? I'm interested too.

I've heard some 3rd and 4th hand horror stories.

Only 10 hours into your 14 hour day when your back at base? Go do Jepps for 4 hours then you can go home. Stuff like that.

how hard is it to get a SEA or VNY basing??

I thought the Jepps was the FO's job while flying (apart from shifting the gear lever!!) that sucks. Any idea on the pay / QOL / flying, the usual stuff.

cheers!

Jepps have to be done. It is not Professional to leave them for the next crew. When and how you do them is not important. Getting them done is. It is a pet peeve of mine. Getting an airplane with a handful of Jepp envelopes stuffed in the binders, undone.

My cousin's Husband worked for Clay out of VNY was a young guy low time CFI. I advised him not to go work for him based on it really is a small industry but the thought of flying beat up old GII or LR28 seemed better then Instructing up in SEA. 3 years later after being treated and paid poorly and I think he kept being passed over for upgrade as Clay was hiring all his line crosser buddy's as off the street captains he quit and took a contract job up in BFI on a CL604.

So I think it is fair to say that there are better places to be then with Clay Lacy. Oh and I hear he is really scary to fly with as in Altitude bust of +/- 1000. :eek: I guess he's still living in the past he's definitely not in the same league as Chuck Yeager or Bob Hoover even though he thinks he is.

Be careful now, or Avbug will be on here explaining how Clay Lacy is the patron saint of aviation, how well respected he is, and what a great pilot he is based on the success of his business!

All his airline pilots flying for him quit back after the strike. Most of his pilots honored the strike he didn't so had no respect for him or his operation. He lost the respect of all airline pilots when he worked during the strike and can never regain it ever.

Apa

The office at TAC Air is not occupied. If there is another office at APA then I am not aware of it.
