J. Kevin Lacey


Kevin's aviation career began in 1973. He earned his Private Pilots license in 1974 and repossessed his first airplane in September 1975.

He earned his Airframe & Powerplant Mechanics license in 1976 and while working as an aircraft mechanic, he went on to earn his advanced flight ratings which ultimately led him to the cockpit of a Cessna Citation as a corporate pilot.

In the maintenance department, Kevin has served as Director of Maintenance of FAR Part 135 jet charter operators, General Manager of a Part 145 Repair Station, earned STC's, performed Import and Export Conformity Inspections, managed maintenance and preservation events.

As a pilot, Kevin has flown nightly cancelled check runs, skydivers, corporate executives, executive jet charter passengers, cargo, air ambulance, and served as Director of Operations under FAR Part 135

He has also navigated the Federal Aviation Regulations and created both a Part 135 Jet Charter Operation and a FAR Part 145 Certified Repair Station.

This unique combination of skills, experience and qualifications make Texas Air Fleet an invaluable resource for the aviation finance community.
