Our Promise

We promise to go above and beyond in our service commitment to you.

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 to your home airport in your own aircraft, or in 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 via the airlines. Should you decide to stay onsite, we can arrange for you to have fun in our desert sun – from a day of golf, a motorcycle ride through our mountains on a Harley, or a day relaxing at a local spa.

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 accurate, the first time, with no surprises.
