stud7094 I think it's 2 years. So FedEx and ups are out...u still have the majors if anything is left of them.
Only FedEx has this restriction, the reason why none of the other companies including UPS has this restriction is because they carry mail on the lower deck where it is out reach to anyone in flight. There are guys working at UPS that were flying abroad before joining

Sounds Great! Thanks for the info. Don't plan on being able to get hired by FedEx or UPS, but at least the Legacies would still be an option.

MTR congrats, as for me still waiting but it should be soon now because I spoke to a very good friend of mine working as captain and one of the head of recruitment there, and I told him I was waiting 4 months ! So he went to the office and my file was just laying there, no one was taking care of it, because the lady who was in charge was not there (maybe she left).
So he took my file to someone else and now it is processing, they just ask me more documents (family stuff) and hopefully I'll get some news soon.
I was just wondering that if he didn't do that I could have been waiting much longer...

What is the likelihood that Qatar (and probably EK and EY) set up special/group interviews in Madrid/Barcelona in the near future for the Spanair pilots? Many qualified Airbus pilots to be found there I would imagine...

They will send you a list shortly. Its will describe the stages you go through in the joining process...eg visa.

You will do a license verification etc. pretty easy stuff. But get in to it early so your not stressing before you leave.

Applying for Qatar

Hi guys

I'm applying for a pilot position with the company: I flew the B737, A321/1 and A310 as an FO.
Last 12 years I've been PIC in aircrafts mtow 41 tons (GV).
Am I going to expect an FO position or a PIC on the A320?

Can anyone who is working in the company tell me what to expect if joining the team?


Thanks!

I just wanted to say to gukk: That was one epic wait for any progress. I think you currently have the dubious honour to hold the record of longest wait between positive answer and a contract offer. Fingers crossed it gets rewarded somehow hey?


On another note, anyone from the 10th of January group hear anything? Been three weeks now by the way so i realise its early days to be asking. They just contacted me for some documents but no indication of a result yet.

8weeks, no news



So he went to the office and my file was just laying there, no one was taking care of it, because the lady who was in charge was not there (maybe she left).


drfaust, too early...be ready if you're not lucky, everything is possible...

Hi rk303

Me almost 9 weeks no reply. I think we should anticipate for more than 90days. I must admire gdukkoq's patience.
