Just came back to the forum after a year or so. Like most of you here, I used to constantly swarm here looking for any bit of knowledge about the course itself etc. I am well 2 months from finishing my QR MPL course with L3 so feel free to PM and shoot any queries regarding the course itself

Hello QRAviator,

Firstly, thank you for your hospitality and congratulations for making it this far.
I have a few questions I hope you can kindly entertain -
- Are there any batch of L3 Qatar MPL cadets after yours which have just started training not long ago?
- Are you experiencing any delays in regards to training phases?
- Is there any news of a holding pool of cadets with QR on your end?

I have recently passed all stages of selection but waiting to start the course.
I'm sorry I cannot pm you, I don't have the adequate post counts. If you'd prefer you can provide your email I will communicate with you there.

I can't thank you enough and I hope to hear from you soon!

Actually people who are already in the program now. There is a patch which should start this month but they postponed it and told them we donít know when you will start due to the current problems in Qatar. they donít say that itís not gonna open again but at least will take alot of time.

Yes sadly.. I was due to start in November but they told me that they'd postpone for an unforseeable future. You should count yourself lucky you're only at stage 1. Go out and put your apples else where cuz i don't think they'd open up anytime soon, minimally a year.

They have their own national cadet programme open until 30 September at the moment and I can only guess that they want to stop hiring expats and take in their own nationality.
​​​​But we can only wait and see

Qatar will never stop hiring exapts due to itís very low population, they have been doing there national cadet programs for years and also doing the other one with L3 and hiring direct entry expats, Qatar Airways eill never satisfy by only locals.

Thats very true. But currently they are facing a bottleneck situation in both STAA and L3 in terms of starting line training and we can only wait and see how it pans out. As far as I know they have about 50+ cadets on hold at the moment.

Hi Black Pudding, as you are pilot instructor at QR would you mind sharing your view about when it may or may not open and what's the possible contributing factor of the closure of the mpl? Based on my research I've found the most probable cause is line training delay.
And if that is the case, I have seen that QR has recently signed an agreement with Air Malta to train cadets on line and a few batches are currently doing so at the moment since mid of this year and if it goes well as planned could the MPL potentially reopen in a few months?

Many thanks

I don't have the answers. What are your circumstances ? Have you started your MPL training yet ?

Finish your Bsc, get a job, save money and go Modular at any place that will,give you an EASA License.

Until you have a flying job, you have no flying job. Don't wait for a remote chance you'll get an offer of an MPL place with Qatar, it may never happen as you might fail the selection and wasted time waiting for it.

​​​​​​Waiting to sign the LOI with QR. Was due to start in November but they told us QR has put our batch on hold and did not give us any time frame on when they'd reopen again as QR does not know it themselves

Many thanks
