Desert Jet Center Supports Angel Flight West Volunteer Pilots

Desert Jet Center, Fixed Base Operator (FBO) located at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport (KTRM) in Thermal, California, announced it will waive all ramp fees for all Angel Flight West volunteer pilots conducting flight missions in and out of the Palm Springs area and Coachella Valley.

Volunteer pilots donate their time and aircraft to assist the nonprofit organization, Angel Flight West (AFW) by providing free, air travel transportation for children and adults with serious medical conditions or other compelling needs. In support of the program and the philanthropic work of its volunteer pilots, Desert Jet Center is waiving ramp fees for all AFW missions arriving at the executive FBO in KTRM. The savings will help pilots minimize their personal costs associated with their donated flight.

Desert Jet Center’s founder, Denise Wilson, flew her first Angel Flight West mission in 1998. Looking back, flying for Angel Flight West had a significant influence on her appreciation for the impact volunteer flying can have on both the pilot and the passenger.

With the construction of Desert Jet Center’s new terminal and hangar facility nearing completion, the FBO will serve as a warm welcome to the many pilots who graciously volunteer their aircraft and time to assist those in need.

With Desert Jet Center’s designation as the CAA Preferred FBO at KTRM, pilots who are CAA members can also receive additional discounts on fuel costs, saving their out-of-pocket costs further. Voting to renew the FBO’s preferred status at KTRM will begin July 1st.
