ENRIQUE I did not say fired !!!!

I said let go as it did happen for those pilots from spain since they grounded their fleet and Copa went and interview them at Madrid and gave them a job while they were jobless!!!


And again the pay is known to the public if someone does not like the amount then he/she should not apply and don't just get the job and then start complaining that's not enough!! It is certainly better than the RJ left seat they left behind and or the unemployment line!


A little appreciation goes along ways and that includes towards the spaniards said pilots with 200 hrs that they gave them a job that no way anyone else will let them even close to a 73 with that experience or no experience in better terms and all of a sudden they became gods gifted aviators and bad mouthing Copa !!!!!

By the way I am not a Copa captain for the record! Or a management pilot as a matter of fact the opposite a very Union involved pilot !!!


Saludos!!

Leave the man alone

The whole point of having freedom of speech is for the man to say whatever the hell he wants, and plus this is the internet.

Who the heck are you to say that he should be ashamed about anything.

I dont know where the heck you're from dude but have you stopped for a second to think about why whoever you think doesn't like you, does not in fact like you?

Have you considered that maybe it's something related to your condescending attitude towards others?

If I go to the far east or the middle east or anywhere as an expat pilot I have to be respectful of the law and the culture and customs of the land, the problem is that some expat pilots that come to Panama consider Panama and the other locals to be below them, so therefore they feel that they should rule the land and rewrite the laws and everything.

You are not worth my time talking to you!

I was an expat in panama , never involved and not even a member of unpac since I was an expat and currently back in the USA and yes heavily involved with the unions here.

So don't tell me to be ashamed!!

Respect the job they gave you and treat people with respect!!

Tapita73

Dear Tapita73,

The fact of the matter is that your online attitude is a mirror of your true inner self.

Also, you have the right to freedom of speech while on the internet, and in Panama as well, Panama is a free country. That right includes your right to say stupid things, and to make a total ass out of yourself, and yes that comes included with freedom of speech.

I will quote what you said
You should be ashamed to say that you are involved with the union. It is clear that union members are not uncommon to criticize foreigners pilots, they have never stopped to think that with a real union more things would be achieved for the benefit of all pilots, but the union does not think.
Maybe you don't realize the reach of your words, but to say that someone should be ashamed of of being a part of UNPAC, why is that? why in your opinion is that a shameful thing? Because perhaps you feel they should do things differently? or perhaps because you don't have say on it's matters as an expat? Is it because as you say, they criticize foreign pilots? Should foreign pilots be allowed to be above the law? Should foreign pilots be worshiped as Gods? Should foreign pilots have a different status than panamanian ones? Is that what you are suggesting? So you're saying that the union does not think? Meaning that they're stupid? or that they lack the cognitive and mental ability to run things? really, is that how you feel?

Come on Tapita73, enlighten us with the correct way to run a pilot's union, share your agenda with us, and your plan of actions so that we can follow you, "master!"

You seem to have the attitude of a self-entitled a-hole that is deluded in thinking that he is doing the world a favor by being yourself.

It's funny how a lot of expats come into Panama and they don't know a single union member personally, and they say stupid things about it the way you did.

I feel sorry for you Tapita73. And please by all means show me how to fly, show me and tell me what a real union is, hell as a matter of fact, Tapita73... show me how to live!!!

Copa will not be hiring any more foreing pilots for now. And if they do most likely no F/O because of local pilot development efforts.

The only thing that could change those plans is the fact that a lot of expat pilots are resigning now, going to Qatar, Oman Air, and a lot of guys going back to their country. They are not leaving pleased about Copa and Panama, so think twice....

reveal it tells you the certificate is not secure, with explorer it should allow you to bypass this and with any other web browser it wont allow you to go further.


Propdude, i am, i applied in 2013 but didnt have my uk cpl yet only my FAA , now i have the license and 250 hours more, but i lost my reccomendation letters. So will see what happens. I already send my resumé and received an email stating it has been received so i will hold on, on sending more stuff untill i need to if i ever do.
