When you’re in a business dealing with private jets this already deals with customers at the high-end of the market. While costs will always factor in, it doesn’t involve about the cost of an airline ticket, perhaps more with the cost of aviation fuel.
Desert Jet deals with private jets. It was founded in 2007 by Denise Wilson providing aircraft sales and acquisition services and aircraft management services. The company received Federal Aviation Administration certification as an air carrier. This allowed a number of local aircraft owners to place their aircraft into revenue operations.
This Thermal, California-based company is both a charter operator and an aircraft charter broker giving it access to a worldwide affiliate network composed of hundreds of aircraft. This setup allows Desert Jet to provide lift in almost any place, anytime, and in any type of aircraft. This includes light aircraft such as a Learjet 31A; midsize aircraft like a Gulfstream G200; and heavy aircraft like a Gulfstream IVSP.
The setup enables aircraft owners to offset their cost of ownership and on the other side of the market allows travelers who do not own an aircraft to fly via private jet. Serving both sides of the market has been a profitable venture for Desert Jet.
