Desert Jet Center located at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport (KTRM) in Thermal, California, will host the upcoming 2021 Citation Jet Pilots Annual Convention on October 20-23, 2021. The event marks the first time CJP will hold its annual convention in the state of California. As the CJP FBO of choice in the Greater Palm Springs area, Desert Jet Center will be welcoming Citation jet pilots, board members, guests, exhibitors, vendors, and an estimated 120 aircraft flying into the Thermal airport during the 3-day convention. With the high volume of jet traffic typically experienced by the airport during peak season with golf and tennis tournaments, equestrian events, modernism week, art shows, and music festivals, the CJP convention will draw the highest number of Citation jets to the airport during the event.

CJP’s annual convention, now in its 12th year, has grown into a multi-day event featuring an unparalleled combination of educational and social opportunities, against the backdrop of historic and luxurious venues and for the first-time ever, the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, California.

In keeping with its mission to promote and represent the interests of members who are owners and pilots of all series of Citation jet-powered aircraft, CJP's convention features an excellent line-up of guest speakers, seminars, partner and vendor displays, a Safety Stand Down, and expanded companion training programs during its convention.

“We are grateful to the Citation Jet Pilots Association for their decision to bring their annual convention to the Greater Palm Springs area and selecting Desert Jet Center as the host FBO at KTRM,” said Desert Jet Chief Executive Officer Jared Fox. “They are helping to support our local businesses and communities with their event. While we are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase our spectacular facility and exceptional team to our guests, we are equally excited to welcome one of the most influential and respected associations of aircraft owner-operators in the world to our desert oasis.”

“Our members who fly to the Palm Springs region continually praise Desert Jet Center’s reliable service, luxurious facilities and commitment to a fantastic customer experience,” said CJP Chairman Randy Broiles. “As our association once again gathers in person to celebrate CJP’s annual convention, I’m incredibly pleased to have such a fantastic host FBO.”

“I cannot think of a more appropriate or welcoming venue to greet CJP members flying to our annual convention,” added CJP Chief Executive Officer Trent Corcia. “I know that everyone will enjoy their time in Indian Wells as their Citations are in the expert care of Desert Jet Center.”
