Captain Larry Balocca has served in many capacities and has made many friends during his tenure with GoJet. After joining the first cadre class on May 12, 2005, being one of the few who opened our ORD base, Captain Balocca is retiring and planning to help train new pilots.
Officially retiring from flying this month, Captain Balocca was thrown a party to highlight his accomplishments over the years and to celebrate his transition into his new role as a flight instructor.
When asked what he plans to share with young pilots, Captain Balocca said:
“I would tell younger pilots considering making GoJet their home that we have a great training ground. You receive a tremendous amount of experience, so you can upgrade quickly, and advance your career.”
Captain Balocca also enjoys how close he and his airline colleagues have grown to become.
“It’s fun to get to know your colleagues on a personal level,” Captain Larry said. “Working with GoJet has given me one big extended family.”
While he’ll miss flying with GoJet, Captain Larry is proud to continue his passion to train new pilots.
