Earlier this month, GoJet had the opportunity to sponsor the Aerosim “Be a Pilot Career Expo” at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York City. The museum is centered around the USS Intrepid, an aircraft carrier de-comissioned in the 1970s. The event gave aspiring pilots the chance to learn about career opportunities in aviation against a backdrop rich with aviation history.
The agenda included an informational presentation on GoJet airlines, as well as a talk by Aerosim alum and GoJet Captain Eric Christensen, who spoke about his path from Cadet to Captain. Given the industry’s current demand for pilots, Captain Christen told attendees that it’s a great time to be a pilot, and encouraged them to believe in themselves, embrace uncertainty and be fearless in their pursuits.
Those in attendance were also able to experience the NYC Fire Department’s, “Blessing of the Fleet,” which was took place at the same time. The Firefighter II boats gave a stunning water display to the crowd, complete with fountains of red, white and blue water spraying from their water guns. The water display provided the perfect finishing touch to an already great event.
