Desert Jet Adds a Citation Excel to its Growing Charter Fleet

Desert Jet Citation ExcelPalm Springs, California, November 19, 2016 – Desert Jet has added a Citation Excel to its charter fleet.  This beautiful aircraft is based at the company’s Palm Springs/Thermal headquarters at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport (KTRM), and is available for immediate charter.

The Cessna Citation Excel is configured to accommodate 8 passengers with beautiful leather seating in warm neutral colors.  The roomy interior has an aft fully-enclosed lavatory and a galley area towards the front of the cabin for refreshments and snacks.  An additional 9th passenger can be accommodated on the belted lavatory seat.  The luggage area is spacious and can accommodate a substantial amount of baggage, including items such as snow skis and golf clubs.

The addition of this aircraft brings Desert Jet’s fleet to nine jet aircraft based throughout Southern California to serve its clientele.  “The Excel is the perfect addition to our existing fleet of Citation aircraft and fills the niche our clients have requested for an affordable larger cabin aircraft”, said Denise Wilson, President and CEO of Desert Jet.

Desert Jet is one of just a handful of operators its size that hold all three of the top safety ratings, including the ARGUS Platinum rating, Wyvern Wingman status and the ISBAO Stage III registration.

Like all other aircraft that Desert Jet manages on behalf of its clients, this aircraft was added to the Desert Jet charter certificate in less than a week.
