La Quinta, CA, September 25, 2010 — Desert Jet, the desert’s premier on-demand air charter service, has acquired a Hawker 1000 for one of its clients, and has added the aircraft to its charter operations. This makes the second fleet addition for Desert Jet in the last month, doubling the size of their charter fleet.
The super midsize Hawker 1000 has a range of over 3800 miles, capable of nonstop flights coast-to-coast. The Hawker 1000 is larger, faster and has more range than the popular Hawker 800/800XP/900XP family of aircraft, seating nine passengers comfortably with increased cabin and luggage flexibility.
The beautifully appointed cabin has been recently refurbished, featuring leather seats in a neutral sand color and exquisite maple woodwork. The seating capacity for nine passengers consists of six individual seats that berth and a three seat divan that converts to a bed for longer flights. Amenities include a hot galley with microwave and coffee maker, Aircell satellite phone system, DVD/CD entertainment system, Airshow 400 moving map system with 2 viewing screens and individual seat monitors, power outlets at each seat, a privacy door separating the cabin from the flight deck, and full private lavatory with vanity. Baggage is stored in a pressurized, external baggage compartment that is accessible during flight through the aft enclosed lavatory.
This aircraft joins Desert Jet’s existing fleet consisting of a Citation Encore, a Citation V and a King Air B200GT and is the only Hawker 1000 available for charter in Southern California. The aircraft is based in the Palm Springs area and available for special one-way pricing between Southern California airports and the New York/Tri-State area. The pricing for the Hawker 1000 compares favorably to midsize aircraft available for charter. As with all of Desert Jet’s pilots, the crew is highly experienced, averaging over 10,000 flight hours and perfect safety records.
