Direct Entry Captain

Recognizing experience

At GoJet, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to pilot hiring. Experienced pilots can join the team as a Captain rather than a First Officer. Our program is ideal for First Officers who meet Captain requirements but are facing long upgrade times.
