"future wife"
"future ex-wife" not recommended at the interview, no time for site seen, the time line is pretty tight!

"future ex-wife" hahaha, magari per te o magari preferisci i maschi

Well maybe not during the interview but I would like to stay few more days with her to enjoy the sun as where we leave there is none

Any constructive comment would be appreciated, thanks.

Loc is right, better plan your trip in DOH without waiting the HR to organize your romantic holiday. You'll end up being right in the red-zone and this year the forecasted temperature seems to be a little bit higher compare to the historic shown!



My 2 cents...no wife at the interview let alone girlfriend, but surely you'll not be the first and not even the last!

Thank you guys, really nice, thank you. A simple answer yes or no would have been enough.
Fortunately google is my friend, it is not permitted to stay in a hotel room with a girl unless you are married, marriage certificate will be required at check-in.

So, I will go alone to Doha!

She will come with me to Dubai for my Emirates interview the month after

Enjoy the warm weather as this seems to be the big issue for you

First day of the open day in Athens today and the lady from the company said that is better to go for screening with your wife for just checking the life in Doha. They said also that this year some FO will take the upgrading with just three years in the right seat!!!!

That upgrading only applies to A300 F/O did she tell you guys all the f/o s who are bypassed for stupid reasons, or the silly new rule that 2 consecutive Qcaa standard grade in a manuenuevr and you be bypassed on either seat swap or fleet transfer. New idea by CPF and FM320 to stop the exodus to other fleets or other airlines. Also any report by a cabin crew for any stupid reason that goes directley to accoutable manager of the airline and your bypassed as well.
As for 320 Captains, if you delay a flight for the wrong reason, your fired

Hi!

I know there is a seperate thread for QR Second officers but is has gone silent for a while.
Does anyone know how the recruitment of SO's are going?

I know the airline interviewed many low hour pilots a few years ago, but how is the situation at the moment?

Thank you,

Dan

Hey guys,

Wondering if anyone here knows the deal for the Qatar SO fast track?

I understand that as the "SO" you are actually acting as the FO, except flying with a training captain until you complete the required cycles, to become a normal FO, and come under the normal FO T&Cs? What are the T&Cs like until that time?

What equipment are they likely to assign you? Also, what is the experience of guys who have entered Qatar as "SOs".

Thanks for any information guys, appreciate all honest info.

That is how I understand it as well B767PL.... I am also going to apply for the fast track program.

Not sure how much exp they really want... I meet the requirements but who knows eh? Can't hurt to try I guess... Only 40 sectors line training too so that is pretty quick? FO within 6-12 months, sounds alright.

I keep thinking "SO" = cruise FO, really need to get out of that habit haha. What does Qatar to for Cruise FO's anyway??? cadets??? 200hr pilots??

Widebody fleet maybe? Hope so

Doha really isn't all that bad as they say.
If you're comparing it to the life (night life etc) to the US for example, of course it isn't the same, but neither is any other GCC country.
Agreed Doha is a little behind even compared to other GCC countries, but if I could get a job at the world's 5 star airline, i'd take it anyday!
Not as bad as they say..

Cadetpilot:
for your info:
The so called "5 stars" is related to business & first classs PASSENGER's treatment only..nothing to do with CREW treatment/condition.
