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.

We buy the fuel, mark it up $0.25 a gallon and sell it at that price until the tank is empty. No up and down pricing. We have single point and all of our jet fuel has PRIST.

This operation is a joy to go to. I operate a p46t and you save me $800 from faculty fees and price of 100 gallons at PSP. Whoever you are Thank You.
From Dick Welsh
Excellent fuel stop with the cheapest fuel in the Coachella Valley.
From John B
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!
From James Price
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.
