In 1966 he founded Jet Air, the first Learjet dealership in the Northwest. His career in aviation grew quickly with marketing and sales assignments for Gates Learjet and The Raisbeck Group. In 1981 Clark teamed up with Milt Kuolt to form Horizon Air, a highly successful regional carrier that was later sold to Alaska Airlines. In 1986 he founded Avstar, Inc. and established a worldwide sales system to market ex-military jet training aircraft to American companies and private individuals.
