sorry for this seems to be an obvious question maybe... maybe not.
Q3 on the application, it asks do you have a current IR? seriously? is this Instrument rating?

Hi all.. Request a bit of info. Does anyone know if QR has any non poaching agreements with other airlines? It means that if you are from X airline and you want to join QR you cant! Its going around... For eg Emirates and Indigo pilots cant join QR.
Is this just a rumour? And even if its true do you guys think if a pilot who has a joining date with QR, leaves such an airline, serves the whole notice period, gets the NOC (No Objection Certificate) and reports to QR to join that QR will still decline them????
A friend of mine is in such a predicament..
Any thoughts on this??

that's right Ironbutt,

"Anyone can fly a round airplane". My crosswind landings are better today because of that plane, LOL !!!

so seriously, does IR mean 'Instrument rating" or 'Instructor rating' or what?

actually I have a bigger fish to fry, but just checking every detail, thx !!

Yes it does mean Instrument Rating and you receive that after completing a License Skill Test (LST). You will have to complete a type rating course/conversion course to get it.

Guam - with your 747 background I am surprised Emirates or that other large UAE airline hasn't picked you up. At QR I would look for a DEC position if I were in your shoes. EK would still be my top choice in the region.

Good luck!

I would have to say you need to click yes to qualify....if you are type rated and captain on 747 you have to have it! An FAA ATP doesn't specifically say IR but that is included and a requirement to hold ATP privileges.

thanks casa,
yes I assumed so. yes, we all have it if we are flying airplanes for a living, but having it on the application questionnaire part and then asking about it here, seemed a bit odd. finally Iver mentioned a LST, which I have no idea what it is. so I must not have it, if it is a GCC thing, or I am missing something.

what have 1000's of pilots done in the past, this cannot be so ambiguous.

LST...

The LST is the "License Skill Test' for the type that you are applying for in Qatar. The LST is essentially your final sim check after you've completed all of your training.

The LST is conducted by a TRE who is acting on behalf of the QCAA.

As mentioned above..LST is the equivalent of a type rating.

WRONG...The LST is the final check-ride leading to the type rating.
