Desert Jet | Desert Jet Receives 5th Consecutive Friendly Flyer Award

Desert Jet, the premier full-service business aviation company based in Greater Palm Springs, California, received its fifth consecutive Friendly Flyer Award presented by the Van Nuys Airport and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).

Each year the Friendly Flyer Award is presented to jet operators that meet or exceed the VNY noise abatement program criteria during the award year. The voluntary Fly Friendly/Quiet Departure Program for jet aircraft was first established at VNY in 1994 to address the community’s concerns regarding jet aircraft noise in neighboring areas.  LAWA created the “Friendly Flyer” award in 2012 to acknowledge operators who complied with all noise abatement policies and procedures and had the highest level of success in adhering to the voluntary No Early Turn and Fly Friendly/Quiet Departure Programs.

Desert Jet | Desert Jet Receives 5th Consecutive Friendly Flyer Award“We appreciate the recognition by the Van Nuys Airport and LAWA of Desert Jet’s commitment to flying friendly in the San Fernando Valley,” said Jared Fox, Desert Jet CEO. “Receiving this award for five consecutive years demonstrates our pilots’ professionalism and high regard to being a good neighbor to the local communities surrounding the airports they visit.”
