Desert Jet Maintenance Earns FAA Part 145 Repair Station Certification

Desert Jet MaintenanceAugust 26, 2013, Thermal, California – Desert Jet Maintenance, the aircraft maintenance division of Desert Jet, has earned FAA Part 145 certification as a Cessna Citation Certified Repair Station.

Based at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport (KTRM) in Thermal, California, Desert Jet Maintenance is the only Part 145 jet repair station based in the greater Palm Springs area.  Desert Jet Maintenance’s capabilities include airframe and engine repair, modifications, inspections, and maintenance for all Citation 500 and 600 series aircraft including the Mustang, CJ series and Sovereign.  Pre-buy inspections and maintenance management services are also provided.

Desert Jet Maintenance has 30,000 square feet of hangar space to accommodate maintenance on any size of aircraft.  In addition, Desert Jet Maintenance operates a mobile service unit to assist aircraft based or transient at nearby Palm Springs International Airport (KPSP) and Bermuda Dunes Airport (KUDD) and can assist with AOG support on any type of aircraft.

“In the past, if you needed maintenance while transient in Thermal, Bermuda Dunes or Palm Springs, you had to call in a mobile service unit based several hours away,” said James Silverman, Director of Maintenance for Desert Jet Maintenance.  “Now, jet operators have not only immediate AOG support available when visiting the desert, they can also plan ahead to have inspections completed while enjoying all the activities our sunny desert has to offer.  Golf, tennis, hiking, bicycling – you name it and the sunniest location in the U.S. has it!”
