Have you done phases 2 & 3 yet? I'd worry more about that interview if I were you. That one lasted an hour and I was asked a lot of competency based questions ie. "Give me an example when you worked well as a member of a team?" etc. My Phase 4 interview was 10 minutes long.

Nope, selection days recently went out for the end of jan . Apparently they're being held every 6 weeks.

Qatar Wings

Hi Guys, is there anyone here who has gone through the scheme and is now training or flying in Qatar? I managed to pass phase 4 and am planning to apply for a BBVA loan however I could do with some realistic times and figures as to what the training durations and pay figures are. More specifically im looking for the duration from the start of initial operating experience to becoming a fully qualified first officer with higher salary figure quoted during phase 2&3 of selection? Please PM me if necessary!

Ahh, that's not a bad timeline if it is to First officer. My understanding was that once line check is complete you're a first officer. What's getting me worried is the fact that the interviewing captain told me I'd be flying as a second officer? What does this entail exactly? Is this simply the name given to trainees on their IOE - pre final line check? Or does one end up as a second officer for a long while? Also what is - 'fast track Second officer' and non fast track?

Excuse the hail of questions, I'm just having a last minute major worry before i send of the loan application, And Internet searching aren't helping at all.

second officer pay and duties

Hi Gents,

I have news from a very good source that the road to FO after arriving at Qatar is 1 and a half years currently instead of 6-8 months. QR does provide accomodation, or if not they will give you housing allowance, which seems like a big amount but is not much in Qatar apparently so you may have to share. I was also told the job security is excellent as long as one follows company and cultural rules. If not, as you may expect things will deteriorate very quickly.

I thought the message received was very positive, If you would like the full message regarding this PM me. Just thought id let you all know so you can make a better informed decision. Essentially if you take out a loan from BBVA, you will just about be making ends meet until you're an FO, at which point it jumps massively to the figures given here (not sure how accurate this website is mind you: Qatar Airways pilot jobs, payscales and entry requirements. )

How can you be so sure though?
I think Qatar airways is a well known airline that wouldn't give fake promises, if it says 6 months then it will be 6 months.

Hi all. I passed stage 2 and 3 back in October 2013 in NZ. I am from NZ and am now waiting for my phase 4 interview. I hear there are hardly any other Southern Hem candidates that are at the same stage as me so Qatar recruiting won't send someone to interview yet, not even at CTC NZ. I have to wait. In the mean time they are continuing to interview in the UK and fill courses. Anyone have any other ideas of how things are going and how long I may have to wait? It is so frustrating not knowing.

Well said


Other than that, it is very good opportunity to start up your career in one of the best airlines in the world.

The risk of spending 105k and then having a 50/50 chance of Qatar Airways taking you on is enough to deter me. Subsequently then being trained on Qatar SOP's and practices making you unattractive to other potential employers is a huge risk with the debt then looming over you. What happens if you are not selected after 18months of training and have BBVA banging the door for 12k per annum or Mum & Dads 3 bed semi?

The quantitive data on the actual wages and the time it takes to get into the flightdeck is not communicated (even at the selection stage 2) and effectively you are at the whim of a government backed employer in a country with very limited or little employment legislation.

Unfortunately I don't have any better ideas but I have come to look at this from a realist's perspective and understand it to be just immersed in a lack of detail, luck and overall poor management.

The idea is great, the execution poor and the risk simply outrageous.

If you fail, you get 69,000 pounds back which is enough amount for CPL training in USA or somewhere.

Then, you have PPL CPL and some full flight simulator time(which is considered to be the same as jet time)

Anyway, I am not a type of person who think negative thing first.

More risk, More achievement.

This is how I live

A PAT test with 105,000 (+ Living expenses) riding on it?

Good luck all, you'll need it.
