Overview

    Our unique Direct Entry Captain program allows experienced pilots to join GoJet as a Captain, rather than a First Officer. In addition, we have a Direct Flow/Path to United in 24 months. This program is ideal for First Officers at other regionals who meet Captain requirements but are facing long upgrade times. At GoJet, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to pilot hiring, and you'll find that GoJet pilots come from a wide array of aviation backgrounds. Flying for GoJet means joining a diverse pilot group that includes military pilots, high time pilots, and recent flight instructors who have transitioned into commercial flying. We look forward to welcoming you to the GoJet family!
