Desert Jet Center Complies with “Know Before You Go” Standards Initiative

Desert Jet Center, the desert’s newest and highest rated Fixed Base Operator (FBO) located at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport (KTRM) in Thermal, California, was among the first FBO’s to provide fee transparency in compliance with the “Know Before You Go” best business practices recommended by top General Aviation industry organizations.

The “Know Before You Go” best business practices encourage FBOs to provide for all General Aviation and corporate-configured aircraft types, in routine personal or business use, an online description of available services as well as a listing of current applicable retail fuel prices, fees, and charges, so pilots and operators can make informed decisions.

In compliance with the fee transparency initiative recommended for FBOs, Desert Jet Center has voluntarily disclosed its fees in the AOPA Directory. The new transparency standards only complement Desert Jet Center’s passion for providing anticipatory service while delivering the best value to its customers.

“We at Desert Jet Center are very excited to participate in the ‘Know Before You Go’ initiative,” commented Roman Mendez, Desert Jet Center’s General Manager. “Pilots are often blindsided by FBOs charging excessive fees and requiring minimums at a very high fuel cost. This initiative will put the power back in the hands of the pilot. Our goal is to always provide 5-star service at a reasonable cost. We look forward to earning the trust and loyalty of our customers through transparency and fair pricing.”

Additionally, Desert Jet Center has just launched its new Customer Loyal Program. This new program allows customers who had regularly visited the FBO as a member of a fuel discount program, an opportunity to continue saving significantly outside the membership.
