Desert Jet, recognized by Inc. Magazine as the nation’s fastest growing privately-owned jet charter company on the 2011 Inc. 500 list, is pleased to announce the addition of a 2002 Citation Encore to its charter fleet. The new addition to the fleet is based at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in Palm Springs/Thermal, California.
The Citation Encore is renowned for its long range capabilities, able to fly flights as long as 1800 miles nonstop at speeds of just over 500 miles per hour.
Desert Jet’s new Citation Encore features a beautiful new interior with warm tan leather seats that fully recline and swivel, and dark mahogany cabinetry. Other features include a fully enclosed aft lavatory, a galley area for refreshments and snacks, and multiple power outlets in the cabin.
The Citation Encore has proven to be an especially popular aircraft with Desert Jet flyers, who collectively flew over 700 hours on Desert Jet’s existing Citation Encore in 2011.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer our clients more of what they want – an efficient, long-range light jet with a beautiful interior, flown by exceptionally qualified and pilots”, said Denise Wilson, Director of Operations for Desert Jet.
