Our location at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in the sunny Southern California desert community of Thermal is nearby world-class golf and boasts some of the best weather in the country.  Bring your plane to us and enjoy a day or weekend of fun in the sun in Palm Springs, La Quinta, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and Rancho Mirage, all just minutes from our facility.

With our staff of qualified Citation pilots, we can deliver your aircraft to maintenance for you at your request.  We can also fly you back home in your own aircraft or one of our Cessna Citation charter aircraft if you prefer to deliver the aircraft yourself.  We have convenient airline service at the Palm Springs International Airport should you prefer to drop your aircraft and return home.

We communicate with you at the end of each milestone of your inspection to ensure there are no surprises.  We obtain your approval before correcting discrepancies and provide you with your options for parts replacement when necessary.

When you return to pick up your aircraft, it will have been run through its systems not only by our maintenance technicians, but also by our own pilots, to ensure your aircraft is delivered in perfect working order.  Your aircraft will be cleaned by our professional aircraft detailing crew and returned to you in as good or better condition as when it was delivered to us.

Your invoice will be ready for you at delivery and correct, the first time with no surprises.
