You would need to get an EASA license and this entails sitting the 14 EASA ATPL exams ... the Qatar cadets with CTC do not sit EASA exams during their ground school

So am I right in thinking they sit the exams under QCAA ?

Essentially in principle if you wished to ever work in Europe again you’d have to re sit the 14 exams and obtain a CPL etc ?

I know someone on a current course who’s certain that it’s as simple as converting to EASA.... however as far as I’m aware it wouldn’t be possible as you’d need 1500hrs however there isn’t currently a conversion in place with any country ?

From EASA to other jurisdictions is more often than not just a conversion. However TO EASA is a different story, you MUST do the 14 EASA ATPLs at some point in your life to hold an EASA license. As for the CPL and flying stuff, I don't know about that.

And yes CTC QR cadets sit QCAA ground school exams.

The Qatar MPL cadets do sit EASA atpl/mpl theoretical knowledge exams however they will receive a QCAA MPL at the end as a result the EASA exams will expire after a certain length of time without having an easa atpl with it.

The MPL is becoming more recognised now and although there is not a set in stone conversion it will hopefully be a much simpler case to convert should you want to

Does anyone have any idea about the re-opening date of QR MPL program?

Just a few notes to help some people out:

The entire process will take 1+ years depending on your application date and is because:

- Selection days usually Jan to spring
- Once complete, Final interviews with the captains is only done when there is enough students to interview, usually 18 or so, and in summer/fall.
-If you pass, your start date is determined based on your app date so you could be waiting another couple months
- due to the blockade and hindered financials, expect delays in hiring - but QR needs pilots regardless due to a large a321 order and general upgrades, look for the app to open up again
- Ensure you have LOTS of work AND school experiences to share, so while you wait ,volunteer or get a job it will help you
- Very competitive - they take only about 36 a year maybe less, so dont be alarmed if on your selection day 1-2 people if at that are successful, they are very specific in what they want and it truly comes down to many factors. You are not competing against anyone but yourself, L3 do a good job on the selection day making sure they get every detail about you down.
-LPJ is good software to get your bearings right but again it depends on your natural abilities - most people fail the interview and group exercises due to lack of communication skills and experience.
- you will be awarded a QCAA MPL with a320 type rating, and you should not pursue this program if you are not willing to commit to QR or live in Doha for the long run

Hi all,

Does anyone have the final interview this week with L3 and Qatar airways? I have mine on Thursday the 8th at 09:30, will be staying near Heathrow the night before. If anyone has had an interview already, I understand they started today, any tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The MPL is solely for QR and there is a 5 year bond once you are a FO. Meanings a total of 6years (1 year SO). A lot of people broke the bond because of the living conditions there.

ComeFlyWithB;

If your friend is inside, why canít you get the information from him? 🤔 I think you shouldnít worry so much and also if you are in the program, L3 or Qr will give the relevant details.

Hi Felix matix does this mean there wonít be any selection assessment this year? Or just that the program will only be starting in 2019?

Selection starts sometime by the end of this year and training starts in the second half of 2019.

Once you are done with a CPL you can technically gain employment anywhere

After the issue of your MPL license you need to be partnered with your sponsor airline and if Qatar gets rid of you , you have wasted your money

You clearly don't know Qatar and the sandbox look at what's happening with alpha and Aby

Burning holes in the sky ?

Lol go get some flight time
can u please give more details about what was happening with alpha and aby?

Early start at Dibden, starts with a couple of introductions and depending on numbers you are split into 2 groups. One group goes to do the group exercises and the other group goes to do the maths and Pilapt. Group Exercises are standard group exercises looking for you to work as a team and get involved, it's not too much of an issue if you "fail" the exercises as a group as long as you worked together to get there. Maths test is 15 questions in 15 minutes I used Pilotaptitudetest.com to prepare that, if you can pass on hard you are safe. The rest is Pilapt, I bought the Skytest program to prepare for the Pilapt and it was really useful.

Then you go for lunch, which is generally pretty nice. After lunch you have the competency interview, if you have never been through a competency interview before you will need to research them and prepare the answers as it's easy to slip up at this kind of interview. What they are looking for is for you to be able to provide concrete examples of situations you have been in that relate to the question.

I got through at the end of last year and got through the final interview in March so should be starting in Southampton in November. Look forward to seeing you in the air.
