In 2004, the County of Riverside dedicated the Desert Resorts Regional Airport in Thermal in honor of Jacqueline “Jackie” Cochran.  Jackie was one of the most prominent aviators of the 20th century, and is likely the most important aviator in Riverside County’s history.  Jackie held more speed, altitude, and distance records than any other pilot, male or female.
