Palm Springs, California, April 12, 2017 – Desert Jet has added a 2009 Challenger 300 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 Challenger 300 is one of the most popular corporate jet aircraft due to its versatile capabilities and comfortable cabin. It can fly to Europe from practically any U.S. city with only one stop, and can access more short runway airports than any other aircraft in its class. The Challenger 300 features the largest cabin in the super-mid category, with a stand-up cabin of over six feet, configured to accommodate 10 passengers.
The roomy interior has an aft fully-enclosed lavatory with sink and the forward galley includes ample room for meal prep and storage for refreshments and snacks. The seating configuration consists of beautiful new leather seating for six, a large three-seat divan in warm neutral colors, and a tenth optional seat available in the enclosed lavatory. The divan converts into a bed on longer flights, opening destinations such as Hawaii and Europe to Desert Jet clients. The galley prep area includes a microwave for freshly prepared, hot meals on longer flights. The spacious luggage area can be accessed and can accommodate a substantial amount of luggage, including items such as snow skis and golf clubs. Inflight wifi is complimentary and satellite phone service is available. An inflight entertainment system allows for movies onboard as well as listening to your music playlist over the aircraft’s sound system. In addition, a cabin attendant is provided for longer flights and on request.
“We are excited to offer this beautiful aircraft to our customers who want the comfort and convenience of nonstop flights to the East Coast,” said Denise Wilson, President and CEO of Desert Jet. “With complimentary wifi, inflight satellite phones and an advanced inflight entertainment system, the Challenger 300 is the perfect super-mid corporate jet for both business and pleasure flights”.
In addition to adding this aircraft to its charter certificate, Desert Jet acquired this aircraft on behalf of its new owner by scouring both on and off-market aircraft for the aircraft that would best meet the buyer’s needs. Once located, Desert Jet managed the entire acquisition, inspection, acceptance and delivery process for the buyer, saving the buyer over a million dollars on the transaction as well as implementation costs.
