Desert Jet has grown over 200% each year since its inception in 2007 and gives back to their community by volunteering the use of their aircraft to various causes such as Angel Flight West and the Special Olympics Airlift. Some recent missions included the transport of abused dogs rescued from puppy mills in Missouri, flying children to Camp Laurel, a summer camp for children living with HIV and AIDS and flying a group of Special Olympics participants to the National Games in Nebraska. Desert Jet has also donated their aircraft for use in fundraising auctions benefiting the Boys and Girls Club and other local charities.
