Thermal Self Serve

 
Designed with the pilot in mind, we are a FBO providing all the tools to fuel, store, and self serve your aircraft. Because of our self serve model, our prices are the best in the valley for 100LL and Jet A Aviation Fuel. We are located at Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport (KTRM) in Thermal, CA near Palm Springs, Bermuda Dunes, and the entire Coachella Valley.

We offer a pilot lounge with a kitchenette, full bathroom with shower, free water and ice, couch, and Wi-Fi access. We provide a Jet Porter and a golf cart to tug your aircraft to and from your hangar. There's even a putting green to practice your golf game.

Who better to service your aircraft than you, the pilot? The self service model allows you to maintain the aircraft your way, and allows us to keep our prices lower for you. Call or stop by for a tour of our FBO.

  Fantastic fuel or overnight stop! Dan and Derek were super helpful when we stopped in for an overnight with an oily old T-28; they helped with fueling, parking, and getting a power cart start the next morning. These guys are awesome and have cheap gas to boot!

  If you require tie downs, those are located at the next ramp to the East. Since the weather was nice, we just had the guy’s park/chock our Mooney next to the pump and the putting green. Our rental car was driven to our aircraft. Great service and wonderful Av Gas prices. We departed a few days later before the office opened. We just parked the car and dropped the keys in the lock box. Great experience.

  Beware that the Philips 66 branded self serve does NOT accept the Philips 66 aviation credit card!

Response from Dan Obradovich, Owner, Thermal Self Serve
We take Phillips 66 card during attended hours and we give a $0.10 discount for using it. Come to the office and let us know.

  First class service at self-serve prices! My vote for best FBO in the west. I'll take cheap fuel, a knowledgeable tug driver (tough to find these days) over cookies and fancy building, any day. Derek made us feel extremely welcome, helping with luggage, car and fueling. Thank you!

  Flew in March 20. Derek directed me to the self-serve, and assisted with fueling. Then, got me excellent hangar space, and a nice rental car on site. Very friendly and professional all the way. Everything was done pleasantly and efficiently. Highly recommended.
 
From Sally Gist on 08-Sep-2016

 
  Our second visit to Thermal and the service was excellent. Derek Fife brought the rental car around (we recommend Desert rental cars), fuel for SoCal is cheap, hangar is available. We have been to other airports but not anymore.
