California-headquartered Desert Jet has added a second Cessna Citation Bravo to its charter fleet. The aircraft will be based at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional airport and is available for immediate charter.

Designed with a quieter cabin and leather seats that swivel and recline, the Citation Bravo comfortably accommodates up to eight passengers. It also features an entertainment system with a video monitor to display Air Show and inflight movies, and there is a fully enclosed, private aft lavatory and a galley area for refreshments and snacks.

The Bravo has a longer range compared to other light sized private jets and excellent short runway capabilities. Multiple baggage compartments with a combined capacity of seventy three cubic feet can easily fit several suitcases, golf bags and a few sets of skis.

The new charter aircraft joins Desert Jet's charter fleet mix of super mid, light and very light private jets based throughout Southern California.

“The Citation Bravo continues to be a popular jet for many of our charter clients,” says CEO Jared Fox. “The addition of a second Bravo to our existing fleet of beautiful, newer light jets enables us to serve our clients' travel needs as well as other on demand charter requests.”
