Qatar

Hi guys

I have an interview lined up later this month. I would be very grateful if anybody could send me any info on the tech quiz??

Before I'm whipped/shot .............I have read all of this thread back to front! Also searched and trawled through other forums and threads/ google etc

Im also aware of the difficulties and underlining unrest in posts on this website ref Qatar. Ive been flying for a while now, and know enough to still want to join.

So if anyone can shed any light (ATPL's were a good few years ago for me!)I am willing to pay the bar tab.

Cheers in advance

Thanks Leo that was most helpful, sounds spot on compared to what another guy said a few pages back. Hopefully I will be given an interview date soon, but by the sounds of it I should start studying now!!

Congrats

Jester2,

Nevertheless, you don't want to be whipped...

Some of you are really unbelievable

Licence/Medical conversion?

Hi everyone, thanks for all the info on this thread.

Can anyone tell me if you need to convert your licence and medical upon joining? Do you also need to do a full medical checkup when you get to Doha?

Thanks,

W

Yes.
-You do need to convert your licence into a Qatari licence. Qatar airways will do it for you.
-Full Class I medical check up as well here in Doha.(blood test,X-ray, eyes,ears,ECG...)
-Small medical check up (blood test,X-ray..) for your resident permit as well.

Housin Allowance

Hi,

I am also new here,

I am planned for an interview for F/O on 20th Sept, anybody else ?

So, question is: Are you allowed to get housing allowance and choose your own house, or do you have to live in designated housing area? What is the current policy?

Thanks in advance.

Leo thanks for the info.

Bike

You obviously are someone who cant help yourself, why bother? Just overlook the the fact I'd been off the thread for a couple of hours on another tab, and the one with pprune on it had not updated at the time.

But thank you ever so much for taking the time to show me the error of my ways. When i grow up I hope to be just like you.......

"some of you really are unbelievable"

Dont bother to reply to this, I really dont have time for anyone like you ....

I found quite a few in my test or very similar one. Go through that and Ace (where you'll find almost all the answers) and you should just be fine, it worked for me
Good Luck

I had not seen this till today. Sure it's a recent addition to the site:

http://www.qatarairways.com/global/eFlight Deck Crew Selection Process Guide

The Qatar Airways Flight Deck Crew Selection Process is a one-day multiple stage process. If you meet the requirements at each stage, you will be invited for the next stage.


You will go through the following exercises:

Technical Exam (General knowledge) for 1 hour.
Competency interviews for 1 hour.
The simulator test. This is done using Qatar Airways own flight simulators.
If you are successful, we will contact you to make you an offer of employment within one month.n/flightdeck-selection.html

Found this website, it outlines the pay for all the major airlines, should put an end to all the questions about remunerations.

Qatar Airways jobs, payscales and entry requirements.

FasterStronger,

If I am not mistaken, QR SO's are just FO's under extended training with a safety pilot. I am not sure how it works with long haul though
