Panama in Need of Trained Pilots
Panamanian airline Copa Airlines needs to hire about 200 pilots per year.
Friday, November 19, 2010
Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines, said there is lack of training in the candidates, which fail to pass the recruitment tests. "There is a great opportunity to be developed in this profession, we are in need of a first class training center in Panama.”
Airlines claim there is a need to improve air traffic management in the terminal, because "there is no point having a new terminal if planes can not reach it."
As of December 9th, Copa Airlines will fly on Tuesdays and Saturdays from Tocumen International Airport to the city of Santa Clara, access point to Cayo Santa Maria.
The Panamanian airline has launched the Latin American Academy of Superior Aviation where they will train pilots needed for their operations.
Given the lack of trained pilots, the Vocational Training Institute will invest $2 million in funding for training programs abroad.
