Exciting things are happening at Air Georgian! We’re focused on continued aviation career awareness and recruitment to prepare for future growth and changes as a thriving regional airline.
Interested in joining our team but aren’t sure what to expect? We recently spoke to our CRJ FO Jonathan Wang to learn a little bit more about his experience as a pilot with Air Georgian.
What has your career path looked like?
I grew up around the airport and always had a passion for aviation. After holding a number of jobs in the industry, including working as a ticketing agent, part of the ramp crew, a flight attendant, and a flight dispatcher, I was looking for another challenge, and decided to take to the skies.
I have always been a people person, am good with communication, and enjoy innovation. In the future I’d like to get involved with the training department and be a part-time trainer!
What do you think makes working at Air Georgian unique?
The growth within Air Georgian is tremendous. I transitioned from flying a single propeller Cessna 172 to working as a First Officer on a CRJ regional jet. I also just recently became a proud Canadian, and there’s almost nothing more Canadian than flying the flag in a Canadian-made aircraft!
What has been your favourite destination?
What would you say to an aspiring pilot looking for advice?
It’s not always easy, but the bigger the challenge, the greater the reward.
There’s a lot of hard work put into the pictures you see on Instagram that many may not realize. If you’re passionate and determined though, you’ll succeed.
Stories like Jonathan’s are not rare at Air Georgian. As a regional airline we offer incredible opportunities for growth, fleet transfers, and new experiences that aren’t accessible at other airlines. Our crew is close-knit, our teams are supportive, and we’re continually looking for new ways to improve the experiences of those working with us.
