CUSTOMER REVIEWS

“Desert Jet is our top FBO for the Palm Springs area for a lot of reasons. Great facility, safety culture and pricing. Also, and added bonus is the fact that they have maintenance on site with a very knowledgeable team lead by Jonathan Schaedig. We have had some maintenance issues while in Thermal with our Citation Bravo and Jonathan has always taken great care of us.” – MJ M (Aircraft Manager/Pilot)

“Great friendly staff, super nice place to fly out of! Highly recommend.” – Chad B (Aircraft Owner/Pilot)

“I’m very pleased with the service your personnel and shop have provided to us on our CJ1 on several different document inspections recently. We are comfortable with the level of care and knowledge your crew shows while working on our aircraft. We appreciate that your crew understands our pride in the level of maintenance we wish to maintain on our CJ1. On our recent “quick turn” visit to the Coachella Valley it was nice to feel as though we were among friends and greeted on a first name basis. We look forward to continuing our relationship with you and the entire staff at Desert Jet Maintenance and Desert Jet FBO services.” – Judie N. (Aircraft Owner/Pilot)

“From the Request For Quote all the way through to the Return To Service date, Desert Jet Aircraft Maintenance was undoubtedly the right choice for our heavy inspection. As a part 91 corporate flight department we benefit from doing business with those who understand our operations, as well as our aircraft. Initially we set out to RFQ multiple shops because we were ready for a change in our maintenance provider. From the very beginning, Jonathan Schaedig and staff were out in front of the situation the entire time, which gave us great confidence in their abilities as well as making the choice to take our aircraft there an easy one. His technicians were knowledgeable and easy to talk to and always had time to answer my questions. They say that attitude is everything and in this case it certainly is. I had never worked with someone that was as eager to earn my business as this guy was. We formed an industry friendship and I am so glad that we chose Desert Jet to maintain our Citation V. We now have a new maintenance provider.” – Craig G. (Director of Maintenance)

“Desert Jet hosted Angel Flight West for a cocktail reception for our pilots, board members and others. They were gracious and couldn’t have been better hosts. We appreciate all they did for us!! I also saw their staff in action and they worked so hard for the aircraft coming and going all day long! Thanks Desert Jet!” Josh O. (Executive Director)

“The new building is super nice and the people working here are courteous, quick, and professional. We will be back plenty more.” Jf F. (Aircraft Owner/Pilot)

“A first class operation with personal attention and follow-up with every detail. It is always a pleasure visiting Desert Jet for fuel, maintenance and charter service, with the best prices in the desert. The new facility is magnificent, a tribute to the spirit of free enterprise and benefit to the aviation and the local community.”
Tony D. (Pilot)

“The hospitality received while arriving in a Cirrus was remarkable. It felt as if I was arriving in a Global. Took a tour of their new FBO being built. I’m excited to go back and see it opened. Desert Jet for the win!” Kyle V. (Pilot)

“Great service all around. Timely, professional, extremely courteous and know what they’re doing! Been in aviation for some time and this is a quality organization.” William S. (Pilot)

“Just started using this FBO. Great hidden gem in the desert.” M E. (Aircraft Owner/Pilot)

“One of my best FBO experiences ever. I fly approximately 400 hours a year for my business. They currently have a temporary facility but their service is incredible. I departed KSMO with a squat switch that had been broken by Atlantic because the line guys exceeded the turn deflection on tow. Did not know this until I was at 500 feet turning to 265 over the pacific trying to deal with SoCal departure and gear that would not come up. This was Saturday and I guess A&Ps don’t work on Saturday in Southern California. I am empathetic to this but it was frustrating. I tried 20 shops before these guys responded. I grinded over with fixed gear and they fixed my squat switch, fueled me with inexpensive Jet A positive and filled my snack drawer with treats. All in under an hour. Can’t wait to go see them again for Coachella.” – Robert R. (Aircraft Owner/Pilot)

“Quick and easy! Great place to stop for some fuel.” Mark R. (Aircraft Owner/Pilot)

“Desert Jets is thoughtful, courteous, general and professional. A month ago we landed at night right before closing in a single piston and they treated us like jet royalty. Everyone from the line to front desk was super nice and helpful, they helped us find a hotel and even lent us a car for the night because they had no crew cars. The next day we were delayed 4 hours for weather and they were nothing but kind and thoughtful. Offering us water and fresh oranges. I truly appreciated the attention of the staff and the facilities (they’re building another building next door). World class service, I will be recommending them to everyone I meet!” Odanys V. (Aircraft Owner/Pilot)

“I had a chartered flight with Desert Jet to San Diego a few weeks ago. It was the most incredible chartered flight experience I’ve had, by far. My pilots Dillon and Tyler were very welcoming, kind, and made sure I was comfortable. I would absolutely recommend Desert Jet to anyone that is looking for a private flight experience.” Lauren P. (Charter Customer)

“I wanted to take a minute to both thank and rave about this team. A friend and I bought a 10-hour ‘ride’ with them at a fund raiser for The Girlfriend Factor, a local charity here in the desert that helps young women get resources for going to college. We flew with them this last Saturday May 6, to Las Vegas for the day and into the evening. The staff was fantastic — professional, helpful, communicative, knowledgeable, everything you could want. The ride was great – beautiful interior, plenty of drinks and snacks, as smooth as possible here in the desert. They had donated their time and costs for the cause — so it really was a win-win, and we had a fantastic day!!” Barb B. (Charter Customer)
