Today I was way out in the desert, in a place called Thermal, California. I decided to check out the airport there, and what did I see? A half-dozen G4's, a couple of Falcon 900's, and (I'm not making this up) Bill Gates's Global Express. The parking lot had some new Maseratis, several Benzes, and a Lambo.


Any idea what these planes are doing here? Thermal is a run down dirty little town, with very little money evident.

PSP is just 30 miles away; maybe PSP was full and stuff at TRM was overflow?

Thermal is actually closer to major Golf Resorts, including the famous La Quinta Golf Resort. It is also away from the papparazzi who would haunt you at PSP

TRM is a nice airport. I did my solo cross-country there as a student pilots. There is a high VOR there are well hidden behind all of the trees on the southside of the ramp.

Watching the corporate flights out of DAL, most flights going to Palm Springs (5-8 per day on average) use either TRM or UDD (Bermuda Dunes) instead of PSP.
