LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - November 17, 2015) - Desert Jet, a private jet charter, management and maintenance company based at the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport (KTRM) in Thermal, California, has selected EPIC as its aviation fuel supplier for Desert Jet Center, its new FBO at KTRM. Desert Jet recently announced a significant investment as it expands its operations at the popular Palm Springs area airport with the construction of a new facility and the formation of a new business, Desert Jet Center.

In addition to many new state-of-the-art amenities, Desert Jet Center will have a 48,000 gallon fuel farm to enable continuous availability of jet fuel to the thousands of business aircraft that visit the airport annually. EPIC will provide both Jet-A and Avgas (LL100) fuel to the operation and the EPIC credit card will be accepted for fuel and ancillary services.

"Additionally, EPIC has a great track-record in providing innovative programs to help FBOs succeed as well as having stellar performance in safety, both of which weighed in our decision to select them," said Wilson.
