Fleet Expansion Continues at Desert Jet; Citation V at Bermuda Dunes Airport is the Latest Aircraft Added to Charter Fleet

April 2, 2009, La Quinta, California — Desert Jet, the desert’s leading on-demand aircraft charter service company, continues to expand its fleet in response to strong customer demand. A Cessna Citation V based at Bermuda Dunes Airport has been added and will be flown under Desert Jet’s FAR Part 135 operating certificate.

“The Citation V is a very popular aircraft and will meet a variety of travel needs for both residents and visitors to the desert,” said Denise Wilson, President of Desert Jet. “The aircraft’s ideal location at the Bermuda Dunes Airport will allow us to provide our clients that live or work in Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage and areas adjacent with a convenient departure location.”

Well suited for business and leisure trips, the Citation V features an eight-passenger configuration, delivering a comfortable, smooth and quiet flight with speeds up to 500 mph and a maximum range of 1961 statute miles. Unlike other smaller Citation aircraft, this aircraft can fly to most places in the United States, Mexico and Canada nonstop, yet still access shorter runways that bring you closer to your destination.

“Adding premier aircraft to our fleet allows us to add strategically positioned aircraft at each of the desert’s three airports,” continued Wilson. “We are committed to offering our customers access to the most popular aircraft models to meet their requirements. The Citation V is the perfect addition to Desert Jet’s fleet, offering a fast, comfortable travel option with the economical pricing of a light jet.”
