Ready to start your new budding career with the desert's fastest growing aviation company? Desert Jet Center is the place for you! Don't worry, no experience is needed, although it doesn't hurt. Can you imagine working day in and day out with business aviation professionals and aircraft? You get to see aircraft take off and land and even service them every day. If that isn't exciting, I don't know what is. Our Aircraft Service Technicians or Line Service Technicians are the first point of contact for all scheduled and unscheduled aircraft that come through the facility. Technicians have the opportunity provide Desert Jet Center’s WOW experience for the customer.
