“Under the circumstances (family illness), all was great. The plane was better than the pictures showed. We loved the snacks and picture water bottles. Having the pillows and blankets available was a nice touch to. The plane was very roomy and comfortable. The pilots were more than accommodating, caring and professional–smooth flight too. We liked the screens showing where we were, elevation, speed….Mom watched that more than out the window. No one thing to say to improve or change.”

I just wanted to relay that Paul and I were extremely pleased with everything about our recent experience with Desert Jet. Everything from the booking process, the excellent communication, the professionalism of the crew, the outstanding equipment, the extreme convenience for us traveling with our dogs was absolutely top notch.  I can’t say enough about how impressed and pleased we were.  It was even better than we expected. This was the first time for us to fly private, and it certainly is a spoiling experience!

August 5, 2014, La Quinta, California – Desert Jet, the premier jet charter, management and maintenance company based in the Palm Springs area of California, has surpassed three of the aviation industry’s most stringent safety standards and earned several safety certifications by participating in three safety audits.

The three audits were the Wyvern Wingman audit, the IS-BAO Stage II audit and the ARGUS Platinum audit.

The prestigious Platinum Rating is ARGUS’ highest level of safety ratings and is awarded only to those air charter operators who have demonstrated successful implementation of industry best safety practices relative to their operations and maintenance. The Wyvern Wingman audit is considered one of the most challenging standards to adhere to and one of the most reputable and recognized in the industry. The IS-BAO Stage II audit is a globally renowned achievement that focuses on Safety Management System (SMS) development.

“This accomplishment is the result of the safety culture we have instilled throughout the company,” said Denise Wilson, President and CEO of Desert Jet. “I am particularly proud of the leadership provided by Brad Lindow, our Director of Safety, who continually promotes an environment where our team members all contribute to the development of our Safety Management System and the overall betterment of the company.”

Less than 5% of all charter operators in the U.S. have earned the ARGUS Platinum rating, Wyvern Wingman status or IS-BAO Stage II, and less than 1% have earned all three concurrently.

50 Fastest Desert JetLa Quinta, California, April 25, 2014 – Thermal-based Desert Jet, a fast-growing aircraft charter, maintenance and management company, was honored by the Women President’s Organization (WPO) as one of the 50 Fastest Growing Women Owned/Led Companies this week at the organization’s annual conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The annual ranking is determined by a sales-growth formula that considers both percentages and absolute figures. To be included, companies must be privately held, owned or led by women and post annual sales of at least $500,000.

Desert Jet, led by founder Denise Wilson, ranked #30 on this year’s list. Wilson credits the success of her company to the values she has set in place in her company, such as deep employee ownership of the customer service experience and an emphasis on continual improvement.

In total, the companies on the 50 Fastest list generated $4.9 billion in revenue in 2013 and employed 22,000 workers.

“The companies that made it onto our list this year reflect the continued resourcefulness of women-led businesses,” Marsha Firestone, Ph.D., president and founder of WPO. “We saw production soaring, with an average revenue growth of 203% from 2009 to 2013. Not only is the financial growth of these companies impressive, it shows that women entrepreneurs are making inroads in non-traditional businesses, such as information technology and transportation. The growth of these women-led companies is particularly impressive as the world economic recovery struggles to gain traction. Privately held U.S. companies on average ended 2013 with annual sales growth of 5.4%, the slowest rate of sales growth since 2009,” Dr. Firestone added.

The Women Presidents Organization is a nonprofit professional association for women presidents, CEOs and managing directors. The organization has more than 1,600 members and 100 chapters around the globe.
