A streamlined pathway to a First Officer position

The path to a career of becoming a commercial pilot can seem overwhelming, especially for student pilots just starting to earn their hours. 

That is why GoJet Airlines offers aviators a streamlined pathway to a First Officer position.  This is a program for ambitious, career-minded pilots who want to get a head start on their commercial aviation careers.

GoJet Airlines’ Wingman Program provides promising pilots currently enrolled in a professional pilot training program an early preview to a Regional Airline career. Upon completion of R-ATP or ATP minimums, Wingman participants are given priority in the First Officer recruitment process and training date selection. Flight benefits and company badging are provided upon acceptance into the Wingman program.


Entry into the program includes a two-day, all-expenses-paid visit to GoJet’s corporate headquarters in St. Louis, MO. Participants get the opportunity to sit in on a new hire pilot class and get a feel for the Part 121 Operation ground school experience. In addition, Wingman will get the chance to meet with GoJet Management, tour HQ, and GoJet’s maintenance hangar. Best of all, the Wingman Cadets are given the opportunity to fly in a full-motion CRJ simulator.
