Desert Jet has completed the construction of its new executive FBO at Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in Palm Springs, California.
The $7m facility is the first and only full-service FBO in the area. It offers ground handling, ramp parking, fuel, hangar, aircraft detailing, maintenance, aircraft acquisitions, sales, management and charter. Offering a modern facility that strikes a balance between clean, contemporary design and function, the FBO is set to change the landscape at the Palm Springs airport.
The 32,500 ft² FBO can accommodate aircraft as large as the Guldstream G650 and Global 6000. It features floor-to-ceiling windows in the terminal as well as an observation deck and the only air-conditioned aircraft hangar in Palm Springs and Coachella Valley.
Jared Fox, Desert Jet’s CEO, commented: “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.”
Located close to La Quinta home and club communities including PGA West, the Quarry, Madison Club, Griffin Ranch and the Hideaway, the airport is also ideally located for VIP passengers wanting to access events at the Empire Polo Grounds, such as Coachella Festival and Stagecoach Festival. It’s also within a couple of miles of the Thermal Motorsports Club, the BMW Performance Centre and the HITS Ranch.
