La Quinta, CA, September 20, 2010 — Desert Jet, the desert’s premier on-demand aircraft charter service, continues to expand its fleet in response to strong customer demand. A 2008 Beechcraft King Air B200GT has joined Desert Jet’s growing fleet. Balancing luxury, performance and efficiency, the newly redesigned Beechcraft King Air B200GT is the ideal charter aircraft for regional business or pleasure destinations.
Desert Jet’s new King Air B200GT surpasses similar older vintage turboprops locally available for charter by offering the state-of-the-art Collins ProLine 21 avionics suite and luxurious cabin features. The new engines on the Beechcraft King Air B200GT provide a 40 knot improvement in speed over earlier King Air 200 model aircraft, resulting in cruise speeds of over 350 mph as well as increased range of up to 1600 miles.
The pristine cabin interior features leather club seating for up to eight passengers, a fully stocked refreshment center, and an enclosed aft lavatory. Additional sound insulation provides a quiet cabin environment. With expanded cargo capacity that includes wing lockers, you can bring your skis or golf clubs along with a substantial amount of luggage. As with all of the Desert Jet fleet, pets are welcomed and treated like a member of the family.
“With less than 400 hours on this aircraft, it is one of the newest and best looking turboprops available for charter,” said Denise Wilson, President of Desert Jet. “We are thrilled to offer Southern California flyers a beautiful, newer option to fulfill their West Coast travel needs at an economic price point.”
This aircraft joins Desert Jet’s existing fleet consisting of a Citation V and a Citation Encore. The Beechcraft King Air B200GT will be available for charters from dual home bases of Long Beach and Bermuda Dunes Airports. As with all of Desert Jet’s pilots, the crew is highly experienced with more than 8000 hours total time, 3500 hours in type, FlightSafety trained and a perfect safety record.
