I was waiting for an interview date to be scheduled back in Oct 2014. Do I need to apply again?

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.
Thanks for helping but as I said i tried many things, as Disabled the Antivirus, Used Explorer 11, edge, and many others but nothing at all I can't open Nuestrohub site to apply.

Ps.Tried now with the Ipad and using explorer but same result.!!!

The only thing i can think of is that you make yourself a hold of another computer and try from it. very weird.

COPA put out an internal notice to its employees for recommendations.
I can't remember the exact number of people they are looking for but it is at or around 100.

So there will be a little bit of movement there in the near future.

Good luck all!

Last thursday in Madrid norwegian OSM held a roadshow and even there minimum of 1500 hours having flown at least 150 hours for the last year.

I guess your post was destined at guys with thousands of hours. But like you said i doubt anyone that already has turbine time is looking at this job.

COPA Process

I just finished the tests and interviews with COPA. Well actually I got the psych evaluation with the Aviation Authority soon, but other than that Im done.

First day of tests was not that hard. Computer test with 6 different part. Go to latetspilotjobs if you wanna prepare for them. There was a computer psychological evaluation, no big deal. There was an interview with a captain and an HR analyst. They were both very professional and polite. No aviation knowledge was asked, just things like "what does CRM mean to you and give us an example of it" or "tell us about a time when you had to make a hard call".

Second day was sim of seneca II. The procedure was a SID with an arc, then a VOR approach then vectors for ILS and a hold somewhere in between, nothing too hard and yet, I know I could have done better.

Then the polygraph and then some blood tests.
Last week I did a Skype call with a person that checks your english level and now I still gotta do the Aviation Authority Psych evaluation.

They have been very professional at all times and I am getting a good vibe from this company!

Now, this process is a bit tricky. How? Well, if you dont suceed for example in the Day 1 tests, you dont go to day 2. If you dont succeed in day 2 tests, you dont get to have the Skype call or come back to panama for the psych eval.

As I understand so far, if you made it to the psych eval, next step is the bridge course. The psych eval is mostly just a requirement of the aviation authority.

I hope this helps!

Thanks Capt4lex!

I just recived the e-mail asking for the documents copies, but in the list is written that the minimum ICAO level is 5 and on the website it is written that the minimum level is 4 (????).

Are you type rated or have jet experience ?

Good luck in your career!

Bridge is a transition course for those that don't have jet/airline experience. You'll have classes about basic jet operation and atpl stuff.

No, you'll be required to convert your licences after you get hired and before starting ground school. Copa will assist you through this (not financially should I say).

I guess the only way is MS Internet Explorer (all other browser doesn't seem to work in the site) and just in case try to disable your firewall... Probably you get a warning about "not safe site" to continue.
Also send an e-mail to [email protected] and you'll get an automatic response with the required documentation.
Greetings...

Has any "Non Panama" applicants successfully applied without 1000h? I heard FAA licensed pilots were being invited with 500h.
