Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. today said that its Atlas Air, Inc. unit and GoJet Airlines have entered an agreement guaranteeing GoJet pilots an interview with Atlas after as little as one to two years of service. First Officers with military flying experience will be eligible to interview with Atlas after just one year of service at GoJet, while all other pilots will be eligible to interview after a minimum of two years of service.
The world’s largest operator of modern Boeing 747 all-cargo aircraft, Atlas Air Worldwide is widely recognized as a leading global provider of outsourced aircraft and aviation operating services. With a focus on express, e-commerce and fast-growing markets, the company is in an era of significant business growth and development, with opportunities to expand its cargo and passenger operations with existing customers and with new ones.
“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.
