Desert Jet has announced the opening of our new Executive FBO at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in Palm Springs/Thermal, California (KTRM). They are now in operation from our interim upscale facility while we complete construction on the cutting-edge Desert Jet Center.
Desert Jet Center is the first and only truly full-service FBO in the Palm Springs area offering ground handling, ramp parking, fuel, hangar, aircraft detailing, maintenance, aircraft acquisitions, sales, management and charter.
CEO Jared Fox said, “It is an exciting time for all the Desert Jet companies. We are experiencing tremendous growth in the Coachella Valley and Palm Springs area, with that comes higher demand for our aviation services. Desert Jet is poised to meet the increased demand with our brand-new facilities, additional jets and new executive team.
“Desert Jet has long been an oasis for exemplary service. Our recent additions will ensure we can continue to deliver for our customers and employees. With these new pieces in place, we will be able to capitalize on additional opportunities in the region while maintaining the values that brought us to where we are today.”
Desert Jet Center brings a new upscale look to the airport and a level of service that was once a tradition in the executive aircraft handling industry. Desert Jet Center is changing the current landscape at the Thermal airport with a modern facility that strikes a balance between clean modern design and function that makes a wow statement.
The location is the closest arrival point for La Quinta home and club communities such as PGA West, the Quarry, Madison Club, Griffin Ranch, and the Hideaway. They are also the closest airport for events at the Empire Polo Grounds, such as Coachella Fest, Desert Trip, and Stagecoach Festival. They are within a mile or two of the Thermal Motorsports Club, the BMW Performance Center and the HITS Ranch.
