A320

Hello Every1. I am new to this thread. I wanted to ask if QA considers second officers with basic experience of 220 hrs(single+multi engine) + Type rating on A320(MCC included). If yes, what is the right way to start.

All replys and advices would be highly appreciated.



Deep Regards
MIR

QR just announced that the A320 is going to yet another "Cream Spot" This time in Libya. I have been offered a PIC slot on this Machine, but it seems like life on the A320 is not much to brag about besides having to live in the Sandbox.
Coming from the left seat of the 744 and other Heavy Machines, QR told me that the A320 is the aircraft they need people on right now as a lot of guys recently quit. So this is what they offer.
I have asked in previous posts if someone (PIC's) on the A320 could enlighten us on how quality of life is on this machine but so far Nothing.
So far what I can gather is 90 Flight Hours a month and 160 Non-Payable Duty Hours approximately, max 8 days at home and max 3 in a row. Some European destinations, but don't get to fly there often, and not many layovers.
(correct me if I am wrong)

I am asking....is a PIC position on the A320 at QR better than a PIC job on the B737NG in Asia ?

Anyone please?

D-Wind
actually a public answer to D-winds questions would be great!
Seems like its a good gig (QR) but still needs to compete financially with EK! Still, it is slightly better than airlines in Oz, except possibly virgin?
I am waiting for the confirmation email, I assume I will be on the 320 as a f/o, as it seems they are very short in this area. I am mainly going for the experience, and hopefully wont get worked to death, but its looking like thats what is going to happen on the 320? Any current 320 roster would be great and news on the training slots and time from fast track s/o to f/o.

Also if you take company accom, do you still get the allowance?

your mostly correct.

the only thing i would say about that is, the Asia contracts are great right now, but they are just that.. time limited renewable contracts. The job a QA has no limit. You have a job as long as you keep doing it to standard, it all depends how long you can do it or how long they will put up with whatever it is you dish out (if anything).

jibba_jabba
if you take company accom, do you still get the allowance?
seriously ?? are you really assuming that would be the case. it really does not have to be said but the answer is obviously NO.

albacantik
its all what you make of it. As i have mention countless times in the past, i have been here a decade and its all ok. Living in this region can be somewhat challenging for some. This is definitely not the worst place to live, but then the same argument can be made that its also not the best place to live either. One thing is for certain, it is extremely safe, probably the safest place i have lived to date. as for the airline, Yes they work you to the limits at times, Yes the goal posts change all the time.. whats applies today will not apply tomorrow. The airline does not care about your personal issues in anyway. The basic mentality is that you come here to work, and thats exactly what they expect nothing more nothing less. Families make life much more challenging in this region. I see some people make a good time of it all and i see some struggle to no end.. again, its all what you make of it. make sure you have a 4x4 for desert getaways, a boat for tranquility at sea, and take full advantage of the unlimited ID90 travel (best done off peak times) then its not so bad.

thanks for posting sample 320 roster.
What do the ======= (arrows you say) mean?
Can F/O's expect similar roster?

if you take company accom, do you still get the allowance?
This was asked because I assumed that if you get company accom then the cost of the accom was deducted from the 12000 Riyal and you get the difference, but thanks for clearing that up.

Hi there Devine Wind,

the first flight is QR 482, so Istanbul. Are you at the end of the workingday, so DOH - IST - DOH, at home or will you stay in Istanbul and then going to DOH, an do the flight 110 (Dubai)?

I doubt it is:
Day 2: DOH - IST - DOH (Total of 9 to 10 hrs I think)
Day 3: DOH - DUB - DOH (Total of 5 to 6 hrs..)
And then 3 days standby.. not the worst deal I think..?? Or did I something wrong?

Qatar

I am in the same boat as you are. They are a little behind due to the Ramadan holiday and their growth factor. They will get around to you though.

Listen up Mate,
you best understand that if this airline finds out anyones true identity on this forum that person will be subject to immediate termination if not worse. having said that, if that was indeed someones month schedule it would be extremely easy to find out who is giving away company information and thus subject to legal investigation. In the middle east working for a state run airline, thats the last thing you would want to have happen.

The Wife

They encourage you to bring your wife but, you must pay for her ticket and arrange for her visa.
