Sorry, I just read this.
I was in Panamá this past week...

Everything it's just like whats on latestpilotjobs you can prepare the advance compas test, and have an idea of what the interview/poly test are gonna be.

This is what we gotta do on sim.
Frasca sim, flying Seneca II. Dont even worry about this, you can even fly it as its a single engine. What they are looking for is ifr nav/procedures.
MDSD rwy 17. Take off and intercept 170r outbound (almost runway heading) and climb to 3000.
4nm arc (right or left) with your HSI, but you can be checking your RMI. Cross 90 radials and thats it.
Then, vector for ILS. They vector you to a point around 2nm before the FAF and descent to 2000. On DA go around and shoot a missed approach as instructed by ATC. Do a holding and then CAVOK! So VFR landing on rwy 35.

They can not do ir easier, I have nothing to say about their screening. In addition, really nice hotel for you to rest and study. Good restaurant with lunch and dinner included. Transportation always on time. Everything as schedule. So prepare your self and good luck!!!!

Hi there,

Sure I can, in fact, a bit more than just feedback. Take a look at this (Spanish translation).

Good luck there!

Question

" Sure I can, in fact, a bit more than just feedback. Take a look at this (Spanish translation).

Hi there,
am interested in taking the test in a few months, and i was searching for some other questions besides the ones in the ATPL and found this forum but can't find the link you shared for the LPG.
No previous experience at all in aviation, am looking into applying for the flying academy.

I don't know why, but it didn't uploaded the pic that I sent with all the Q&A. PM me with your email and I will send it.

I don't know their flight academy open positions rather than flight instructor... What you are looking for, to do flight training or work as a flight instructor?

Sorry i can't DM since my accout seems to not have enough privileges. If you could DM me i'd be happy to reply.

Am interested in flight trainning to become commercial airline pilot.
I've been reading that the academy requires a previous test known as Compass with some basic knowledge but not sure how to get prepared for the ATPL

Yes they are, but an additional english evaluation will be required during the screening process for those with ICAO 4.

They are interviewing pilots on a weekly basis and have thousands of applicants from all over the world coming in for interviews. If you get an immediate reply, you're probably lucky! It's tough but you have to be patient. At some point you'll hear from them and chances are if you meet the requirements, they'll set up a date for the assessments as soon as there is a spot available for it. Good luck!

Panama City Meet and Greet

Hi Everyone,

I am a Panamanian/US dual citizen currently working on my private pilot in the states and am in Panama on Vacation with Family. Anyone in town at all between Jan 3rd and Jan 6th that wants to grab a beer? My goal is to eventually move back to Panama and make copa a career for about 5-7 years before I head back to the states. My cousin and a few friends are going out for drinks at Casco Viejo on Saturday the 6th.

Hope someone that works at COPA can make it as it would be awesome to network!!!

Pedro

That's encouraging news in light of all the talk about a worldwide pilot shortage.
