Greater Palm Springs, California based Desert Jets have had their ribbon-cutting ceremony in celebration of its newly built executive FBO facility Desert Jet Center, located at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport, Coachella Valley, California, on January 13, 2022.
The new state-of-the-art 32,500-square-foot aviation facility features premium amenities, including a luxurious and well-appointed lobby giving business and leisure visitors, their pets, and returning residents an upscale facility to fly to when traveling to Palm Springs and Coachella Valley.
The full-service FBO offers aircraft fueling and ground services, hangar storage, and aircraft detailing. Specialized concierge services such as ground transportation and aircraft inflight catering are also available.
Desert Jet Center also serves as the headquarters for Desert Jet’s private jet charter, aircraft management, and Part 145 aircraft maintenance business entities. And while there are other FBOs in the desert area, none offer the full range of services available at Desert Jet Center that a business jet operator requires.
The ribbon-cutting will be performed by County of Riverside Fourth District Supervisor V. Manual Perez and Desert Jet owner Jim McCool. The Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce, local dignitaries, and elected officials join select guests invited to the event. Music students from the College of the Desert will provide the entertainment playing jazz classics.
“We are pleased to celebrate the opening of our gorgeous new FBO terminal, the first new FBO in the Coachella Valley in 20+ years,” said Desert Jet Chief Executive Officer Jared Fox. “Desert Jet Center has transformed the face of the Jacqueline Cochran Airport, bringing new investment, new technology, and a state-of-the-art centerpiece building. I am ecstatic that we now have a first-class facility commensurate with the five-star service we have provided our clients for years. Desert Jet is well-positioned to continue as the premier FBO, charter, and maintenance company in Southern California for many years to come.”
