"36 - What would you do if the captain decides to descent below minimums?"

There's a right answer for this one? Or it's situation dependent?

You would be surprised as to how many people feel minimums are a guideline more than a rule...!

Usually a a call on the radio of a go around tends to solve this issue, after you bring ATC into the mix it forces the miss approach. And then place the astronaut on your “no fly list”

Any Luck

Hoping to hear from any expats that may have had some luck with Copa? Just hit the 1000 and thinking of putting my hat in the ring.

Hey STVNBRKBCK,

Great and useful info! You are very kind.
Their website however states that they need the online website application as well, yet I could not find the link. Previously I did apply online but now there is no web surface that I could find.
I assume they previously did not get back to me because I do not speak Spanish, yet I even had a reference from inside. Applied as FO, with piston 1,700 hrs.
Now I have 2,500.

I am an expat here in Panama, flying for Copa. They hired a lot of pilots all over the americas and europe this year, and the company still hiring people, daily we see a lot of new pilots doing the pilot screening process. Here is a good place to fly, they pay us a good salary, we fly good airplanes B737NG/MAX - EMB190, they give us transportation from home to the airport and airport to home. Panama City is a great city to live, there are a lot of restaurants, supermarkets, shopping malls, schools. They schedule is really good, you can choose your destination, if you want to fly a lot or few hours, that system is really good.

Copa is a non-commuting job. Expect to fly around 90h per month.
Depending on where you live in the Americas you might be able to go home when you have a block of days off, but don't count on that happening every month.

The good thing is that, as Copa's network is quite large, you might be able to bid flights to your homebase.

Heh heh. Do pilots in Dominicana also make jokes about "Captain So and So, astronaut"? In Mexico we have a ton of "Capi astronauta facts" on the model of the Chuck Norris ones...
