As an FO in copa you will make about 85 thousand a year. The captains are making 17 to 20 thousand a year. Great work rules and conditions. Hurry up get your stuff in before they close the hiring window!
Huh? FOs are making $85,000 and Captains only $17-20,000? Makes no sense.

Captains are making around $103,000 a year, while FO are around $48,000 with the CPL and $60,000 with the ATPL.

What the upgrades looks like??? 3 years/15 years??

Do they upgrade by seniority or performance??

And in the SOP's can you fly manually the aircraft??


thanx

Hi guys. I'm having some trouble with Copa's web application system. It seems that the page where I'm supposed to attach the required documents is missing the "attach file" button. Has anyone else had this problem? The system will not allow me to complete and submit the application without attaching at least one file... Any suggestions?

Yes funny site. 'Truly user friendly'. Or was it fiendish...

You've got to go first to the applicant home, where you will find the attached files place. Put your stuff in and supposedly you will be done...

Good luck

Keep waiting, it takes around 2 wweks or more. There's so many pilots who have been called so they are organizing the interviews.

So here I am, at Tocumen airpot waiting for my flight back to Buenos Aires in a few hours and today I finished with all the interview process.

The simulator was fine. A COPA captain gives you a briefing about what he expect to you to do on the test, and all the things you will have to do. To me was a SID from Guatemala Airport, holding on a fix, DME arch and published approach, missed approach, and another ILS approch with a landing. Other pilots took off from El Salvador.

The poligraph it's easy, a little bit creepy, but fine to me. Just a few question about drugs, money laundering, criminal records and falsifications.

Labs it's urine and blood examples.

The interview is with a COPA captain and a girl from Human Resources. They don't ask you anything rare, just a few minutes talk; what do you think about COPA, why COPA, Why do you think they must hire you...and things like that. Then you have to show them some of the original documents.

The COMPASS test is on a computer and you have to do 6 diferent test including 30 ATP questions most of them referred to big jets. Some of similar test you can find it on this page Computerized Pilot Tests-Latest Pilot Jobs

The psychological test it's also in the same computer and you have to choose one of the two options of common sentences, and are 225 questions.

That's all guys. Good luck to everyone who applied.

Regards.

I traveled from to far to Panama, 6.5hs flight. So I chose a 3 days date. I arrived on sunday morning and I had all day free. then had my dates on monday and tuesday until 4:00pm and my flight back was at 21:40pm. I had time to go to know the Panama Canal and the city.

I don't know from where are you going to, but more time it's better to relax and be fresh for the tests! Of course that's only my opinion.

Very good luck! Regards!

EDIT: HAHAHA sorry, you're from Nicaragua, just a few minutes flight! And I bet you already know Panama...nothing to say! Good luck!!!

No worries MikeCharlie. I went to Panama city once to catch a concert (Soda Stereo), but I only spent that one night there. Pretty short flight 1:10.
thanks.
Update here with any news

Hey Guys,

I'm also having some trouble with COPA's web site. When I try to register, there is a box that requires a "ID Document Number". But no reference as to where I can find this?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!
