What's the bonding arrangement for upgrading a QR FO? The website mentions a reimbursement training bond for command upgrade..

30 pilots in 8 weeks ? Maybe

Maybe some failed training, maybe some did stupid things and got fired. Some may have been really really unlucky ? I don't know

Nearly 1500 pilots here with lots starting every week due to the expansion and filling the gap of those deciding to leave of their own accord. So 15 a month, 3-4 a week may be true. I am sure its not the norm.

Do I go into work in fear, nope. Simply do my job to the best of my ability and try to stick to the rules of the company, how hard can it be.

You make it sound as if its a place where everyone lives in fear. Its not.

30 does seem a little high a figure and I am not so sure thats true

So just to confirm. Some of you have been waiting for upwards of 8+ weeks and you have heard nothing from Qatar?? I applied about three weeks ago and have heard nothing as well.

Is this normal with Qatar or are they going through a transition period wrt hiring? How do they 'get in touch' with you? Phone, email? With a heavy military background and 3000hrs - can I expect a look from the company? Hope to hear something soon.

Be patient

Yeah, I can confirm that I waited more than 90 days for any response and, a few days ago, finally I got an invitation for interview. I think they are working flat out and it just takes time to go through everything with all the applications. Obviously I dunno this for sure but I believe patience is required- and update your application once in a while won't hurt either.
They contacted me by email.

Partner, girlfriend...

Is it possible to have your girlfriend on a visitors visa in Doha...stay for a month in your (captains) accommodation, and then either leave or get another stamp on passport for example flying to Dubai and back? Are there any problems either in immigration, or getting in and out of the compound or any other issues?

At immigration is it OK her to say she will stay "with a friend" in Doha...

I am desperate anyone to shed light on this...

Thank you in advance...

stuck forever on A320


can anybody tell me an exact figure for last year how many guys captain A320 have been transferred to other fleets?

Just got an offer to start on the Airbus 320, but don't want to be stuck on the Airbus 320 till I retire

With transfers do they look at previous experience or is it just pure luck?

No joining date yet, I suspect around june or july (with current backlog in training). My contract is FTSO 320. But again I most probably start as FO since I am very short of FO minimums. We keep u update since I've been faithful to this forum for the last 7 months.
