Apparently it’s “world pilot day” today!
- I was only 14 y/o when I decided that I wanted to be a pilot!
No one in my family or anyone I know is flying so it was my idea from absolutely nowhere♀️
I started flying more than 10 years ago and since then it's been a long way to be where I'm today. But it's a great adventure for sure!
Hope all my pilot friends out there are enjoying today just a bit extra, sometimes looking back will remind you how much work we put in to be where we are today. #Happypilotday
Compañia Panameña de Aviación S.A - The meaning of COPA. Founded in 1947 and since early 1980's a regular Boeing 737 operator. They also operated the rare 737-100 version. And currently their fleet has 737-700/800 and Embraer 190.
COPA wears a similar former Continental Airlines livery as the American company owned 51% of the shares of Copa. Now United /Continental owns some shares, but not a major staker anymore. Although still keeping some code-share agreements and even the similar corporate livery.
Trivia: GRU-PTY was one of the longest routes operated by Boeing 737s in the world at that time. It's more than 6h30 hours of flight. But currently we have some 737 flights that lasts more than 8h (LH768 - Privatair on a 737-700) and even Copa with PTY-MVD (7h30). COPA Airlines (Panama)
