I am new to the lawn service business, but I know that you can dethatch and every once in awhile I see this company driving down the road with a couple of fancy aerators on their trailer. The things are so big thats all they can get on the trailer. I also know that golf courses get aerated (same soil).
I am sure you can aerate. You will need a little moisture in the soil so that it will hold together (I think).

Look at some other outfits in your town as you make your rounds.
Do any of them have aerator machines?
