    Clay Lacy Aviation is alot closer now to becoming net-zero with their carbon footprint. This is so after the installation of a 500 kW solar panel system covering over 30,000 sq ft of roof space at the company's Van Nuys location in California. They also installed 200 new LED lights as well as 44 charging points for vehicles.

    A bit more on this. TAG Aviation Hong Kong will be providing servicing to the Falcon 7 and 8X models as the authorized service center. "We look forward to providing our high-quality maintenance support to Falcon operators in the region," said TAG Aviation director of maintenance Phil Balmer. "This welcomed service center status further increases our existing range of maintenance and cleaning services." Also, "the new Hong Kong line service capability is the latest of a series of measures intended to reinforce our worldwide Falcon product support network," said Jean Kayanakis, senior v-p of Dassault’s worldwide customer service and maintenance network. "It will provide further service options for our Falcon 7X and 8X customers while strengthening our longstanding relationship with TAG Aviation."

    While not a business jet MRO MAAS aviation has opened a new set of paint booths to cater to the painting of up to two narrow-body commercial jets (up to A321 size) at a time. The new facility is located at Kaunas Airport (KUN) in Lithuania. All MAAS Aviation facilities are certified to EN9100, ISO9001 and ISO14001 standards. According to Tim Macdougald, CEO of MAAS Aviation, the central/eastern European location of Kaunas was chosen as a result of several influencing factors. "It was the universal willingness of the Lithuanian authorities to bring a new industry to Lithuania" says Macdougald. "I’d particularly like to mention Invest Lithuania and the Airport Authority of Lithuania for supporting a project that spearheads the development of aviation services at Kaunas; and to FL Technics for committing to build a partnership with MAAS to combine our services with theirs for the benefit of airline and lease company customers; and to Ryanair for its continued business and trust in being our launch customer at the site."
