Participants eligible for $10,000 in tuition reimbursement and recruiting bonuses
GoJet Airlines is pleased to announce that it has signed a pilot pipeline agreement with San Diego Christian College.
The Wingman Pipeline Program provides promising pilots currently enrolled in a professional airline training
program an internship at GoJet while they build flight hours. Program participants become GoJet First Officers
upon completion of ATP minimums.
Participating students represent GoJet on campus and at recruiting events, and are mentored by GoJet pilots
throughout the duration of their internships. Additionally, the program prepares student pilots for the GoJet First
Officer training program by providing course materials months in advance.
““We are blessed to have the first-ever Go Jet agreement that includes CRJ ground academic training at SDC and
a Wingman mentoring program paralleling our missionary pilot program,” said Dr. John Marselus, Director of
Aviation at San Diego Christian College.
The internship also includes a two-day visit to GoJet’s corporate headquarters in St. Louis, where participants have
the opportunity to talk with new pilots who are actually in systems training, as well as sit in on a new hire class
to get a feel for what their training will be like. Students are also exposed to the departments within the GoJet
Ops Center that they’ll interact with when flying the line, including Dispatch, Crew Scheduling and Maintenance
Control. Best of all, interns have the opportunity to fly in a full-motion CRJ simulator.
“We want our pilots to come to GoJet and do well,” stressed Brad Sargent, GoJet’s Chief Pilot. “That’s why we
start preparing them for success well before their first day of class.”
In addition to $11,000 in tuition reimbursement, participating students can earn $2,500 for each successful pilot
they refer to GoJet during their time as an intern (funds are banked until the students become official GoJet pilots).
Other benefits include limited flight benefits and jump seat privileges.
“This program is a win-win for everyone,” said Randy Bratcher, Director of Flight Operations at GoJet. “Program
participants have a First Officer job with a premier regional airline waiting for them when they finish their hours,
and GoJet has a pipeline of high quality and well-trained pilots from San Diego Christian College.”
