Aircraft charter is the most convenient method of travel for residents and visitors in the Palm Springs area, Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego. With our local airline service only offering few options for nonstop travel, aircraft charter provides an efficient alternative.


Why Charter?

Traveling by aircraft charter is one of the quickest and most convenient ways to travel. When chartering an aircraft, you can utilize over 5,000 airports available nationwide, compared to the only 500 airports used by airlines. These airports are commonly known as general aviation airports, private airports, regional airports or executive airports. Most communities have these smaller airports, which enable you to reduce your driving time to a larger airport. Our desert community has three of these smaller airports; Palm Springs International Airport, Bermuda Dunes Airport and the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in Thermal. In Orange County, the John Wayne Airport is a popular choice for private jet flights. In San Diego, the airport choices include San Diego-Lindbergh Field, Montgomery Field, Carlsbad Airport, Gillespie Field and San Diego-Brown International Airport.

Why Desert Jet?

We are the only charter operator with aircraft and company operations based locally in the desert. Our operations are not limited to just flights to and from the desert, as we have support staff and aircraft located throughout Southern California.  In addition, some of the aircraft in our fleet “float” across the country, and may be available for flights while you are traveling.

You can enjoy the benefit of having your own private flight department by flying on the same aircraft each time, with the same pilots, without the commitment and expense of aircraft ownership or fractional shares.

We offer an unblemished safety record with an active Safety Management System in place. We have been audited by an independent third party under the tightest standard available in aviation – the IS-BAO standard. We also hold the ARG/US Platinum rating and Wyvern Wingman certification.

Our pilots are the cornerstone of our company so we hire only the best. Our pilots are the most highly compensated in the industry, ensuring we attract only the best and brightest flight crews.

We don’t charge extra fees such as fuel surcharges and we don’t require large upfront deposits or commitments.  We strive to develop long term relationships and will work hard to earn your referrals.

Every one of our charter and dispatch team members is available 24/7 to take your phone call and answer your questions or concerns.  We don’t use answering services – when you call us, we’ll answer right away!

If we don’t have the right aircraft in our fleet to meet your needs, we’ll tell you honestly – and then we’ll find and screen the aircraft that fits your needs from our affiliate network of charter aircraft.
