Atlas Air and GoJet agreement.

The worlds largest operator of 747 cargo aircraft Atlas Air has entered into an agreement with US regional airline GoJet Airlines that will guarantee interviews for GoJet's pilots with just two years experience.

The deal will also be open for GoJet First Officers with military flying experience, who will be eligible for an interview with Atlas after just one year of service at GoJet.  "We are delighted to begin this special relationship with GoJet," said Atlas Air President and Chief Operating Officer John W. Dietrich. "Aviation is at the centre of today's modern global economy. And its continued ability to provide access to markets, serve as a catalyst for international trade, and propel economic and social development will benefit greatly from innovative partnerships like this one, which will help ensure a solid pipeline of attractive candidates dedicated to a career in aviation."

"Our new partnership with Atlas provides an excellent career progression opportunity for our pilots," said GoJet Chief Operating Officer Terry Basham. "Given Atlas' healthy economic outlook, our pilots will find it an ideal place to build a long-term career.  This agreement opens the door for GoJet pilots to potentially fly the Boeing 747 or 767, among the most storied aircraft in aviation history," added GoJet Director of Flight Operations Randy Bratcher. "The opportunity to join the Atlas team and operate big Boeings all over the world is a very attractive career move for our pilots." 

Current GoJet pilots with the requisite time in service may immediately opt-in to the Atlas guaranteed interview program, while new GoJet pilots may do so as soon as time-in-service requirements are met.

With GoJet mentoring and a guaranteed interview, pilots invited to join Atlas can look forward to advancing their careers with a growing global air carrier, the opportunity to fly wide-body Boeing aircraft, and airline transportation to and from their base.
