Question A320 Fleet - SO Position?

Could anyone tell me if there is a SO position in A320 fleet? Particulary in Qatar Airways!
I ask this because a guy from a recruitment agency asked about my SO time on A320, and I told him have no time as SO on 320. He get back to me and said that observer block-time shoud be recorded as SO time. Is it true?
I mean 320 is a 2 men crew a/c, so how can I record my obs flights as SO time?

This paperwork is killin' me... I mean it!

JOHN555 wrote: thx TwoTone-7 for reply ,,, but can you please explain what is the different between ID50 and ID90

and even the annual ticket will have less priority then commercial pax

Difference between ID50 and ID90 is that ID50 has priority over ID90 regardless of Seniority or Position thats it...
Example: A senior Captain traveling on an ID90 and and a Junior FO on a ID50, the junior FO will have priority... So if you know in advance that the flight is almost full and many staff on waiting list and really need to be on that flight, thats the only time worth buying an ID50 as its much more expensive than an ID90 unless if you are guarenteed a jump seat!

Annual ticket has priority over both...
If you book in advance and you re lucky enough to get a confirmed seat in H class then you shoudn t be offloaded for any reason even if its a commercial pax...
But if you are not confirmed but just on sby annual leave, you ll still have priority over ID50 and 90 but not over commercial pax...

Thats what I know from my own experience...
Cheers

Anyone have any idea whether the Medical is done upon arrival, or once current JAA Medical 1 expires?

upon Arrival 330 airbus.
They don't use JAA class I medical here.You do need the QCAA class I.
Flightstats: no joining allowance.

DEC Pay

Please could someone clear this up for me.

The road show info was that Captains pay was just over QR 31000 p/mth plus the transport allowance. I have since heard of someone joining as a DEC on 11,300 US$ p/mth.

The numbers are not the same and I am guessing the second figure includes all per diems etc based on 'x' hours flying.

I am type rated on the 320 but prefer to get back into longhaul so am just considering the equation at the moment; getting the pay clear would help me.

So what is the definitative 'money in hand' figure on pay day?

Hello everybody,

I've asked this question on another thread, but obviously I didn't receive a clear answer.

How much time did it take for you guys since receiving the "you have successfully passed the selection process" email until:

1) You've received the official offer of employment and fleet allocation.
2) Your date of joining.

The reason I'm asking about that is because I need to sort out lots of things before moving to Qatar and I don't want to start finalizing things that I won't have enough time to complete. Also there is a rumour saying that it takes lots of time until the recruitment guys get approvals from the management, and again to arrange for a relevant training course.

Thanks.

Thanks

Thanks a lot airbus330 and patrickr82. I have sent an email to them and just waiting for the answer. You said they have changed the tech exam to 25 Qs but is it still from JAA question bank or some other stuff?

DragOverLift,
They work a lot !!!
QR is hiring a lot of guys and there are so many assessments and things to arrange, visas, tickets, hotels, etc... that they simple dont support so many pilot at the same time.
This is so because we "new applicants" must be patients.
Good luck for you!
Cheers!

It soon gonna be 4 weeks without any feedback since the sim... My sim instructor told me they should get back to me within 3 weeks, and if not I should contact them. Well I've been trying to get the pilot recruitment office since yesterday and no one ever pick up the phone...
