Well i guess there is nothing to worry about.

I applied for the f/o position. I' m also interested to fly for QR Executive. Does anyone know if i have to fill in again the complete form in the QR Ex. Section of the webpage?

Probably yes. But they could ask you during the interview what you want more. They did for me, I have airline and corporate background, but I prefer airline without questions

Can anyone working for QR confirm that the info about QR on PPJN.com is correct? It was updated yesterday and states:

"Only looking for widebody experienced crew. Narrowbody recruitement on hold." and that the requirement is now 500 hours on type for SO!?"

QR have just updated their jobsite and nothing of the above seems like being the case.

only Longhaul?

That seems a bit strange indeed- They just updated their own requirements and says nothing like it. I wonder where ppj have that info from?

av8tordude is right, there is a backlog. So I believe that another dose of patience is needed :-)

av8tordude what is your mate doing while he is waiting for the sim? are they allowing them to study company material / operating manuals etc etc?

can anyone who has a fleet assignment comment on the amount of joining paperwork you have to complete before reporting to doha? i have been planning on spending a month abroad with friends just chilling out before class starts and need to know if that is realistic or not. also i am hearing that QR requires you to pay up front for some things, specifically the 2 medical checks, and they reimburse you later. how much money should i bring to get started up?

Jibba Jabba...I sent my friend an email and just waiting for him to respond. I'll post what I find out.

For those interested...
  1. Qatar will give you QR 1750 for food.
  2. 50% advance pay (QR 10750) is available if you are in need of money, which will be taken out on your next check.
  3. Company van will be available for 1-week to shuttle you between hotel & the training center, after which you must provide your own transportation. Rental cars range from QR 1800 & up.
  4. Bond (18-month prorated) is taking out of your check from day one.
  5. Medical exam cost QR 1436. Qatar will reimburse you.
My friend said he spent initially $2500.00 when he arrived. He recommends to have a credit card at your disposal or have at least $3000.00 to get you through until you get your first check (unless you take the pay advance).
