The 2023 Palm Springs Winter Warm-Up
Presented by United Airlines 

February 9-12, 2023

The Winter Warm-Up is the NGPA’s flagship West Coast event, which is held at the beginning of the year and is by far our largest yearly gathering. Warm weather, a uniquely Southwest landscape, and miles of blue skies make Palm Springs, CA the perfect spot for a mid-winter fly-in. A hotel booking link is available below, and registration is now open.


Fly-In Info

When flying into Palm Springs (KPSP), note that there are two FBOs located on the field, Signature and Atlantic. We have partnered with Signature for our members flying in. Signature is located on the south side of the runway near the control tower and the customs building. We have attached a diagram for reference (Signature aircraft parking circled in red). Please note that this is a general reference only, and not to be used for navigation purposes.

Signature is offering the following discounts to members flying in and parking at Signature during the event when you mention you are with NGPA:

  • $1.50 per gallon off avgas

  • $2.00 per gallon off Jet A

  • Overnight rates of $20.00 for a single and $30.00 for a twin

  • No handling charges for all aircraft

For those of you competing in our Queen of the Fleet contest on Saturday, February 11th, aircraft staging will be near the hangars on the west side of the field (area circled in purple on diagram). Signature will move your aircraft free of charge. If your aircraft requires any specific procedures to be moved, please relay those to the staff at Signature.

If your aircraft is not entered in our Queen of the Fleet contest and you would like to compete, please let us know so we can enter it in our system for members to vote on. Prizes will be given out to our crowned Queen and Princess aircraft!

We look forward to seeing you all soon out in the desert! As always, fly safe, and reach out to us if you have any questions.
