I got a telephone from the agency telling me that I made a small mistake in my A320 Captain application but that other than that, all was ok with it.
I suppose I will be called for a selection sometime soon. I read the post in the beginning of the thread but can anyone tell me more specifically about the selection process:
a) is there technical testing on the A320 or is the technical test about general ATPL knowledge? b)Is the sim test on the A320 and is it LOFT type or general handling / stick and rudder style? (I am asking because I saw in the agency's site that A320 rating is prefered but not a requirement) c)Is there Pilapt style testing? d)Is there a group exercise
I have an interview coming soon with Qatar Amiri. I realised Qatar Amiri now works under the Diwan and not Qatar Airways anymore. Could anyone give me some info about what it is like to work for Qatar Amiri flight? Work environment for crew and in the office, new management etc.

I just spoke with the CP last week and the operation still desperately needs A320/330/340 captains.
Mods, I don't now whether this post could be construed as advertising but I hope my advice can help some pilots secure a decent job. Just delete it if my post contravenes any guidelines.
If you have over 8000 hours total including at least 5000 hours in command with some on the Airbus, pm me and I'll see if I can get some hopefulls seen. If you don't have these numbers, please don't clog my inbox!
BTW, we have recently recruited from all over the globe including Brits from the majors, Aussies, Kiwis, French, Italians, Eastern European etc. and as far as I know, the "new recruits" are happy with their choice to come. I guess this is a positive reflection on the operation.
Got 15000 total hours, 10000 heavy jet, 5500 330/340 with about 3000 command, 3000 current command 777...but not current 330/340.1000 707 and ex military qfi and VIP fleet trainer ..(PMs popes the Queen etc ).
What is the package on offer... Currently Ek captain so has to beat that ... PM me for a CV if you like,
Rumour from our last EK captain to join is that the Amiri package is better (rumour only) and he is very happy to have made the move (fact).
If you can live with "sleepy" Doha and be comfortable with being on call 24/7 and fly to ad-hoc destinations anywhere in the world, then you could be happy here. I am not aware of any of our current expat pilots who aren't happy here and I don't think any have regretted the move.
I am now invited for selection for QR Airways main line. It took awhile after my application, about 3 months, but they came through with invitation. I have NO idea what I would fly but first, hope to get pass the process and get a job offer. A friend of mine there says he really likes it and encouraged me to apply so I did. Sure, they have brand new planes but what amazes me is how low the salary is to fly for a major carrier. I mean, even 11k a month is not very good for captain, and more so for wide body captain. Anyway, will give it a go and see what happens.
The today, I got a call from agent about Amiri flight asking if I was intereted for the A320 and I said yes. One guy hit it on the head when he said if you dont have another job, then give this a go and I need a job so soon I will know if I get invited to this as well. Not to sound like a whiner, but once again, the pay is poor for this kind of position. I know a guy who flies in ME on A320 who makes 15K US tax free per month, and rotates 1 month in and 1 month out, with all the trimmings. Now this is more like it but not many of these around. I think at least 15K is more like it, or even higher. I mean us x pats go away from our homes to do a job for them and they have tons of money, and yet we get paid low wages for this type of work. And then to be on stanby around the clock, forget going our for a night on the town for some serious beers. So, I see drawbacks to this operation in a few ways, but I need a job and if offered, likely take it.
