Looking at their website, it seems like they've increased their requirements for the Fast Track SO option. I remember them advertising 300 hours of jet time before but it seems they want a minimum of 1500 hours of turboprop now. I wonder if they're swamped with resumes/applicants for the Fast Track option. I wouldn't be surprised.

The F/O minimum is 1000 on multi-crew, jet. if i have 900hrs now and can reach 1000hrs within 2months, bearing in mind the long application process, can i apply for this position as i will easily have 1000hrs by the point of employment?

thanks

Qatar Timeline

Hi guys,

I have found the information very informative over the last few months and have decided to add my own. I started the application process in November last year, I received my interview date 10 days later. I then interviewed in late December, got my letter of success at the beginning of Feb, received my letter of offer at the end of March and received my start date yesterday. I am starting at the end of May. The entire process took 6 months from start of application to start date at Qatar.

I found that after the interview, I had to phone Qatar at each stage to follow up on what was happening and then received my answer via email on the same day of the phone call, not to sure if that was just coincidence.

Good luck to all and hopefully we will all meet at Qatar in the near future.

triplese7en,

Congrats! Were you offered a SO or FO position? Also, how soon do you find out fleet type? Do they offer a fleet when you get the contract or is the fleet allocated closer to training?

Great job coming from the Q400 - give many people hope if they are not already flying 737NG, A320s or bigger. Given that the Q400 is sophisticated and able to fly in difficult weather, it should get more respect than it does thanks to the props.

Dhc8 and co: perhaps what you can do is deactivate your account and create a new one. I'm afraid otherwise you stay in the never existing loop.

Like was previously mentioned, maybe try applying again.
I had applied and never received any answer for 8 months.
I then reapplied using any agency, Paramount Aviation,(exact same application-only they want you to use a different email) and got called shortly after.

SUK,


Looks like you're going to get good news too! - deduced from the general trend that the more it takes to get your results, the more chances that you make it through.
Good Luck and do let us know!

Cheers.
