Thanks for the info. I would like to repeat three major questions from all of us who have been waiting in the pool since last June (or more?) 1. Will we all be given a contract and start date at some stage? 2. Any estimate about when QR will start to give DOJs again? 3. Is this pool working as a "first come first serve", or TR guys have priority to be given a DOJ?
I find it hard to believe that while hundreds of people waiting for crucial questions to be answered because their career is on hold at the moment (some of them without income and not knowing if they will be able to survive next month! ) there is an interruption in their posts from someone who is very worried if he will be able to 'get a wave' or not. This shows selfishness which is a very common attitude these days especially amongst pilots or might be some kind of humour that I did not understand.
well, i am just glad that there is someone like starright who is going out of his way to give us information on what is happening at the moment. I applied 6 months ago and havent heard anything yet but more than meet the minimum requirements.
Like a few people have said, everyone has their own reasons for wanting to go and lets try to be supportive of each other here rather than making some personal attacks.. who knows, you might end up flying with the guy you attack here someday!
Go back to your Basic ATPL subjects. Just the base of them and don't go to deep in any particular subject.. That's the best way to describe it. You just need to study the basics again. I hope that makes sense...
I remember you as NTSO right? So you’re still waiting…no other NTSO had DOJ since this summer ? I was curious to know on which fleet NTSO waiting will be sent. But for the NTSO waiting be careful guys. I think that due to the low importance of NTSO in the recruitment process they won’t have time to give you information regarding your case. But I would like to advise NTSO to try to contact QR by all mean to get information on your file if you didn’t have any.It paid off for me like an other guy who had reach the age limit previously.Our requirements is different from other qualified pilots candidate. After 9 months of wait, I find out myself disqualified this summer for a very specific reason that’s surprised me a bit.(no family relation with a QR pilot…so game over) Only those who received an e-mail with an update expected soon should wait. For others…well … I hope that you have something else than pilot licences to get a life just in case of…You can have one outside aviation too.
RK303, you did your assesment and you passed but finally you were disqualified because you didnt have family working for QR? I find that very hard to believe. I think 95% of those NTSO's waiting has no family in Qatar..
JeanPaul, What I told is exactly what I've been asked by phone by the QR RH. And I've been informed that I have to be a QR pilot relative otherwise no slot available for me.
Since the begining I tried to get the results of my assessment.I don't have a reason to lie about it,this was just an interview and some people in this forum kindly helped me to contact the RH due to lack of information regarding my case. For the rest of NTSO I don't know.I can only talk about what I've been told regarding family connection.Perhaps there is something else but this is all about the conversation I had with the person who hold my file.
It’s ok, there is no drama, I took it as a bet, you win or you loose. But at least l can say that I tried, so no regrets! But my message is to always keep in mind to get a decent job, having a life and family projects. Which are other interesting tasks to complete ,that may balance the frustration of not being a pilot.
It is normal for experienced pilots to fight for their job because they are already professionals in their discipline. But for a very young guy with 250 hours, you never been a professional and all you know is your dream and passion. You have to try but You have to think about your life if it not happen! Do not wait 30years old to ask yourself questions.
Good luck to everyone! Hope your wishes come true INSHALLAH!
On the move again then? Had enough of the Far East.?
A friend of mine who was a F/O in same company as me some years ago on the B767 when I was in Lauda Air has just joined QR as B777 Captain.He joined as a current B767/757 Captain. Currently line training. If you like I can give you his E Mail address.

Hey all long time lurker.. I'm wondering if anyone knows about the application site being down. I've looked back through the past few previous pages and seen nothing on this. The site I'm trying to apply through is Flight Deck Crew | Qatar Airways. Every time I click on apply now it says the page no longer exists. This has been for several weeks on both Macs and Windows machines. Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks for the info.
