Hey there ! does someone know if Qatar wings take women ? (or only one or two to say : look ! We're opened-minded even if we still force women to wear a headscarf )

Did you manage to rearrange Selfmade?

I'm interviewing on the 19th also. Anyone else?

As far as applying or not applying for this scheme goes, I decided to take one step at the time. I've applied and IF I get offered a place, I will make my decision on whether to carry the offer through to the end based on what I know from the assessment and anything else I might have been able to pry out of CTC/Qatar Airways by that time.

I can see everyones point of view and from the limited information we all have at the moment it does seem like an incredible financial risk!
But maybe there is a silver lining....

Time and more information will tell.

Lucie_c :

Yep they have taken several female cadets over the years, one or two from Jerez and some cabin crew who wanted to move up to the drivers seat, they've also hired female direct entry FO's and captains, even husband-and-wife teams

Obviously just being a woman and living in that country has some major issues, but to be fair to the airline they don't seem too hung up on sex discrimination.

Hey, so has anyone actually gone to the Qatar/ CTC assessment yet?

As I rightly remember there was one on the 13th and another on the 19th. I'm booked on to one on the 6th August as I was in LA for both the other assessments.

From what I remember reading they hold a question and answer session in the morning session, just wandering if anyone has any information from this?

lucie_c I'm also a female applicant and been accepted for interview so I'm guessing they are hiring females

There are lots of females working for Qatar. It's not an issue at all. You get treated like everyone else.

Thank you for your answers, that's what I thought but as Luke SkyToddler said I am a bit worried about woman's living conditions in that country. I will probably finish my application and try to learn more about it if I'm selected for tests and interviews.

Don't know if anyone has mentioned this but on this course you do not actully get a PPL etc. only a MPL and hence couldn't go down to your local airfield and take a plane up by yourself (seems a bit stupid). (Went to the Qatar Wings open day in NZ last weekend)

The same has applied to all CTC integrated courses for quite a while now. On the traditional wings course you get a ME CPL so you would only need to add a SEP rating in order to hire out a light single.

Didn't realise that I just know that the CTC Jetstar course in NZ gives you PPL, CPL and ATPL so thats all good for me

Perhaps it's something to do with that's where all their aircraft are? It's a pretty cool place to fly around in as well to be honest.

Jimmy, I doubt very much CTC will get you your ATPL, Jetstar or not!

Sorry I should have been clearer, you do your ATPL exams, and then put onto the line with Jetstar where you will do your ATPL once you have the hours to do so

stage 4

Hi my son has got through to stage 4 but has not got a date yet but has been told it is in Qatar Has anyone else been told the same? Is there anyone on here who works for Qatar now ? that can say how the previous students who work for the airline are coping. My son is only 19 and if the company is looking for students in there mid 20s as with easy jet he doesn't want to waste another 1000 going to Qatar for an interview. does the figure of 105,000 include the cost of going for the interview I guess there is no discount off the flights either...

Hi, congratulations to your son!
I don't think his age matters as they are looking for 18 to 28 year olds. It will be really good for him to get out there to decide if it is right for him, on the website it states all travel and accommodation will be paid for so it's essentially a free trip which will provide him invaluable insight into his potential future home!
Good luck to him for the final phase!

Unless they have gone back on their word according to the CTC website the cost (if necessary to go to Qatar) will be covered by Qatar themselves so subject to clarification from CTC on that point you should not have to worry about paying for a flight.

I actually went to a selection day for Qatar but did not make it to stage 4. Salary details were given in the selection day presentation so unless they were missed off the day your son went he should have been told them. I forget off the top of my head the numbers but I thought they looked pretty good. The only potential downside is that obviously the line training wage is much reduced and there is no definite timescale for when line training will be complete - previous posts in the thread suggest that the CTC cadets who went to Qatar a while ago still have not completed.

Did you have to go to Qatar? We were told at my selection day that it would not be necessary.
