Hey guys. I'm interested in applying for the B737 FO position with COPA, I see they've got a large fleet and a big 737 MAX order. Just trying to find out a few details if anyone can help me with providing the info:

1. Do you have to be type-rated or can they type rate you?
2. What are the FO and Captain salaries like now for 2022?
3. Any idea on time to command?

Thanks!

Does anyone have any news about copa calling again?
I heard that they will receive more aircrafts and that there are a lot of pilots on flydubai and ryanair screening.

It can be really exhausting, several days off in a row are hard to get. However flights are easy to bid for to have some layovers at MVD or EZE.

They are looking once again for both Captains and FOs.
Any idea of the T&Cs?
How is the training in Panama?
Any training bond?

Thanks

The email I got stated they are opening up vacancies for 2024 and I must update my information. They asked if it was for FO or Captain.
I have no idea on the T&C.
I don't know about training.
Last I heard it was 1 year, but I am not too sure about that.

Hi Luca!
Where are you from? If your answer is Bolivia, ECUADOR or Peru you will get the email.

Cheers

Received an email in August to update my info. Haven't heard anything since.
I was wondering if any of you who have been through it before could share your experience with the timeline. How long did it take for Copa Airlines to make a decision after the assessment?
Your insights would be really helpful!

Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone. I applied since January and I first received an email saying that they postponed the recruitment due to the delays of the 737MAX orders, but recently (1 month ago a little more) I received an email with a form to fill in my personal info and flight time. I have at the moment 939TT non panamean, I know I'm not yet on the minimums but I'm applying to get my curriculum on the cloud. I'm also actively flying on a jet operation (737CL). A good friend of mine working at Copa told me that they are recruiting now and are in need of pilots. I suppose it's harder for us FO applicants as they are now taking almost all of their FO's from their flight school ALAS. I'm shooting my shot anyway!

Good luck for everyone
