ExpressJet has been a large family to me throughout my 10 years here. As a line pilot, I learned from not only knowledgeable captains professionally, but also from experienced men and women personally. The people here have molded me into the person I am today and I will forever be indebted to everyone at ExpressJet for that.
- Joey Cook, Manager of Flight Operations Hiring and Recruitment
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at ExpressJet. Our industry-leading fatigue, sick call and ASAP programs make dealing with “life’s little surprises” a lot less stressful. The career protection programs offered here are incredible and make me feel secure as a pilot.
- Jonathan Matovich, Captain - IAH
Prior to interviewing, I researched several different carriers to determine which one best met my needs. ExpressJet was at the top of my list because of the Atlanta base. I received the best training possible and get to work with the most professional pilot group in the industry. Five years later, and I am still confident that ExpressJet was the smart choice for my future.

My decision was definitely the smart choice for my future.
