Meet future GoJet First Officer Ky Miller. Ky is currently in training and is a familiar face at GoJet, having interned with the Flight Ops department in the summer of 2014. When asked what made him decide to return to GoJet to launch his career, Ky credits the $10,000 signing bonus, the St. Louis base, and the company’s close knit, family vibe that he experienced first-hand during his internship. Ky has the distinction of being a second generation GoJet employee–his mom has been a GoJet flight attendant since 2006.
Ky grew up in Springfield, Missouri and obtained his private pilot’s license while he was still in high school. Later he attended Saint Louis University’s Parks College of Engineering, Aviation, and Technology and graduated with a degree in Flight Science and a minor in Marketing. After college, Ky earned hours by flying traffic watch in a Cessna 172 for two local St. Louis radio stations, AM 1120 KMOX and AM 550 KTRS.
Outside of flying, which is Ky’s main go-to hobby, he likes to play golf and baseball, and is a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. During the summer, Ky can be found water-skiing and fishing at his family’s lake house at Table Rock Lake. When asked if he had any advice for future pilots, Miller said, “Don’t ever stop making connections and meeting people, and don’t ever stop going the extra mile to achieve your goals. In the end, it will all be worth it.”
We couldn’t be happier that that Ky has chosen to launch his career at GoJet. Be sure to welcome him to the GoJet family when you meet him on the line!
