GoJet Airlines has announced a pilot recruitment initiative, offering bonus opportunities and career advancement pathways, as the US grapples with a pilot shortage.

GoJet Airlines is introducing a comprehensive Direct Entry Captain bonus package, including a $175,000 sign-on bonus and an additional $25,000 bonus for pilots with a Part 121 type-rating.

This offer presents a total bonus opportunity of up to $200,000, paid out within the first 12 months without any contractual obligations.

President and CEO Rick Leach expressed his enthusiasm about the new pilot recruitment initiative, stating: “At GoJet Airlines, we’re dedicated to excellence and the impact of our game-changing product in the marketplace.

“As one of the fastest-growing regional airlines in the industry, with almost 100% contracted growth ahead of us, this robust and industry-leading bonus program reflects our commitment to attracting top talent and providing outstanding career opportunities. This initiative builds upon GoJet’s innovative track record, reinforcing our adherence to continued company success and stability.”

Some of the attractive aspects of GoJet Airlines include the CRJ 550, expedited seniority progression due to company growth, a top-tier regional pay scale, and a direct path to the United Airlines flight deck in as little as two years for DECs through the Aviate programme.

Leach added: “As the aviation industry undergoes a transformative period, the demand for experienced pilots is shifting. At GoJet Airlines, we recognise this dynamic shift and its potential to accelerate our growth plans, benefiting our employees, company, partners, and passengers alike.

“These bonuses represent a unique opportunity in an evolving landscape where such incentives may soon be scarce. Our message is clear: seize this opportunity now, and secure your future with GoJet Airlines, where you will benefit from our significant growth that lies ahead and become an integral member of our Safety, Performance and Quality leading team of aviation professionals.”
