Desert Jet Center
Executive FBO

Desert Jet Center is proud to announce the brand-new, cutting-edge designed Executive FBO facility at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in Palm Springs/Thermal, California (KTRM) is open and welcoming travelers to the Coachella Valley! The 32,500-square-foot FBO facility features an upscale terminal with floor-to-ceiling windows, state-of-the-art amenities, gorgeous observation deck and the only air-conditioned aircraft hangar in the entire Palm Springs and Coachella Valley.

Desert Jet Center is the first and only truly full-service FBO in the Palm Springs area offering ground handling, ramp parking, fuel, hangar, aircraft detailing, maintenance, aircraft acquisitions, sales, management and charter.

Desert Jet Center brings a new upscale look to the airport and a level of service that was once a tradition in the executive aircraft handling industry. Desert Jet Center is changing the current landscape at the Thermal airport with a modern facility that strikes a balance between clean modern design and function that makes a wow statement.

Our location is the closest arrival point for La Quinta home and club communities such as PGA West, the Quarry, Madison Club, Griffin Ranch, and the Hideaway.  We are also the closest airport for events at the Empire Polo Grounds, such as Coachella Fest and Stagecoach Festival.  We are within a mile or two of the Thermal Motorsports Club, the BMW Performance Center and the HITS Ranch.



We are located at the best location on the airport, towards the approach end of runway 17, with ramp space that can accommodate aircraft as heavy as a Boeing 757, with direct access to/from runway 17/35.  Our brand new state-of-the-art 22,500-square-foot hangar, the only air-conditioned hangar in the desert, will accommodate aircraft as large as the Gulfstream G650 and Global 7000.
