Everyone is throwing dates out there, but no one is bothering to state:

1. Where did they do the interview
2. What position are they applying for
3. What they are currently flying/experience.

There are dozens of factors guys, and hundreds of applicants.

Good evening Gents three questions still linger in my mind, If anybody would kindly enlighten me i would be very gratefull.

1. If you are a DEC typed in the A320 but for any reason you get assigned something different are you still bonded?

2. After getting accepted and assigned a type whats next what are the next steps after you get to Doha?

3. Is there any mobility between fleets for DEC?

Thank you!

If you are offered a different a/c i.e Boeing - You will be bonded for 3 years.

If you are offered A330/340 then there is a shorter bond for CCQ and short course guys. Yet, there is still bond.

After you get to Doha you will do the administrative stuff, get you resident permit, caa medical etc and wait for a start date for the TR course - if need be.

Question

@TwoTone-7

QA has any specific interest in recruiting Type Rated pilots, or it doesn't matter if you are rated or not?

Slightly off topic

I am updating my logbook to scan and email with applications to a few middle east airlines and they are wanting up to the last 3 pages in my logbook

now I really really cant be bothered to put in every sector or every day as not done it for a year, I was wondering if it would be acceptable to put in months hours on one line and send it that way or if it would come across as bad form?

Logbook

zerotohero

I think that you must be as much orginized as possible logging sector by sector day by day. It will help you specially to validate your licenses for QCAA.
The Airlines are very concerned about fake logbooks.
Try to get and fill your log in a detailed manner and you wont have any problem.
Cheers!

The interview invitation is sent by email or they are calling?
I remember I thicked "phone" as preffered contact method and now I'm thinking of change it to email. Would it be a good ideea, or I should jus live it as it is?

Devine Wind - can I just ask if your 747 time was as in command. Good luck with the decision.

After carefully reading the massive threads on pprune regarding QR, a few questions.

- Are there any cases known that people have been contacted after the 90 days period? I am quite aware of the amount of work QR recruitment has, and we have to be patient, but i'm closing in on the 90 day mark. Still no reply. Are they very strict with that limit?
- Been to the recent roadshows, very informative, very friendly gents, but has anybody heard anything regarding those days?

For extra info, I tick all the requirement boxes of QR, just shy of 2200 hours TT, all on TP, so applying as Fast Track So. I know the demand for cpts and f/o are higher currently. Just wondering if the FTSO is slowing down a bit? Thanks so much! Looking forward in joining!

Regarding the roadshows recently at Heathrow and Manchester I went along myself and haven't heard anything back if it helps and I'm 2850TT on 737.

Tell them it's 777 PIC or no show, you might succeed.
QR A320 PIC is really no option for someone with your experience.

That's double-edged! I know the HR guys at QR very well.. They could simply reply by asking "Are you joining an airline company or a fleet?!". Well, of course both... But the intent of the question is not so nice, is it?

You can strictly demand the 777 only if you are not so keen to get the job.


Good luck.

John don't known the figures for second officers and number of scale if there is..
But for
-F/O, senior F/O have 5 scales..means you gone have an annual salary increase on your basic(3..4%) the First 5 years in your respective grade,after that no increase anymore
F/O basic salary goes from 21500QR(entry salary) to 24190QR (after 5 years)
SFO goes from 24200QR to 27240QR(after 5 years)
1 year= 1 scale. and related to your Basic salary.

-Captain haves 10 scales..means they gone have an annual salary increase for the first 10 years: goes from 31000QR(entry level) to 40460QR(after 10 years of being a captain,).

-Flying allowance: F/O:90QR/H SFO:105QR/H CPT:120QR/H
-Utility 300 QR/Month
-Transport 1500QR/month

Anytime you change of grade F/O->SFO->CPT you go back to scale 1 for the respective grade(entry level).
In other words if you become Captain after 4 years or 10 years , i won't make any difference in your initial Basic captain salary, you go back to Scale 1 captain salary.
Hope its a little bit more clear..

I received an offer for an interview 2 weeks ago. I replied the day after the offer accepting the interview and again 9 days later. I have not received any response from QA since the offer. Is this the norm?

Also, are there any good study guides for the interview?
