They do have the A-7 Hunter Interceptor fighters, predecessors to the A-9s in the New Republic era.

There's stats for them in The Force Unleashed conversion book.

For a shuttle, they could have a light freighter which has been spiffed up with luxury interior. Maybe a Corona Transport?

Per the A-7’s write-up, it was a contemporary of the 1st. Gen. TIE, so it would be a little long in the tooth, too. Plus, there’s no reliable imagery of the A-7.

The A-9 is a possibility, but I’ve never liked the design of it; the engines aren’t properly placed to generate linear thrust. The asymmetrical way they are placed down low on the wings means the ship is way more likely to just spin in a circle than go fast in a straight line.

I'm not a fan of the way they look, either. I was just trying to find a KDY fighter to keep with the theme.

Rather than fighters, KDY has Firespray patrol crafts which could be loaded down with additional weaponry to fill the fighter role, or perhaps they could have a few Lancer Frigates to run anti-starfighter. These are executives for a company with seemingly endless resources, so it could work.
