Good news but I wouldn't hold my breath...... If either Skywest or Mesa decides they'd fly the 550, it's CYA G7

This article says Gojet has a 10 year contract to fly the 550... can this be canned if skywest or mesa step up?

United doesn’t want Mesa to do it. Skywest doesn’t seem to have any interest. If GoJet can convert the 700s they should be in good shape.

Contracts mean nothing when you’re a FFD carrier contracted with a mainline. See GoJets brother airlines Compass and Trans States as an example

They are hiring A&P’s the ad on Facebook says.
And the total contracted to be converted so far is 74. They have 38 flying and as it’s been said on a few forums they’ve started converting the Mesa planes as we speak. That contract for those through Mesa is 9 years. 10 years through Skywest. 9 more years on the 10 year contract with United.
I would say hiring pilots by June if air travel keeps going the way it is. The April schedule released has a lot of 550 flying and it’ll only increase as more and more get converted.

There is a facebook post that specifically says pilots...

Damn I should’ve actually logged onto Facebook before posting that. That’s a recent post on their part.
They should prob actually open the application process if they’re going to post that. Smh

If OO wanted to fly the 550s, they'd be flying the 550s. 10 year contracts don't matter if they can't pay for their airplanes...
