Joining A320 fleet huh? If you have other offer, then you should consider it. A320 fleet at QR is not the best (Compare to other fleet here, we have the worst roster) ex. 80 block hrs with 150 duty hrs

Shortage of 320 crew causes such a hard roster, when they hire more crew roster will be better.
Also hopefully the management will re-consider the fleet transfer policy once they have enough 320 pilots.

So Upgrade now!
And upgrade guys with in the company .Why not. Put all together and start assessments for upgrade 5-4-3-2-1 yrs with the company. Give preference for guys who were captains before maybe.Do something ,but don't hire DECs because QR dont need them now.and the time for upgrade guys current flying A330 or A320 as FO will be faster.

Why hire Decs who gonna be unable to bare with the place? As captain is hard to bare with.As first officer terrible,but at least the guy has a dream to upgrade and he gonna stay for while.

All fleet recruitment use the same email address


or you can visit www.qatarairways.com
but I think that the deck crew hiring page is not working properly at the moment.

"Shortage of 320 crew causes such a hard roster, when they hire more crew roster will be better.

The company can't catch up the the rate of pilots leaving the company (A320 fleet), so we will never have enough pilots on A320 fleet. Management knows those problems, but they are not willing to fix it or willing to compensate.

FYI: A320 fleet has this kind of roster for years, not just recently.

Totally agreed with KRUGERFLAP! upgrade within the company is much better than hiring DEC. Atleast people will tend to stick around more since they have been putting up with this kind of roster

Qatar simulator assessment, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Dear friends.
I will have my sim ride with these guys next month, December, in Doha.
I am a Captain in a BE1900, but the sim will be in an A330!!!!!!!
Of course I’m not that confident since is a big change. From a raw data, no autopilot, 17120 MTOW turbo prop., to this fly by wire, joystick glass cockpit, etc monster. Will see what happen.
My question is if anybody that was interview in the USA like I did, went to the sim in Doha. If yes…Did you get an otter written test like the one they did in the US? Is there an oral test? Or just the simulator assessment? How they expect people like me to perform, I never flew anything above 18000 pounds, or glass cockpit? Will they have some consideration or is Cathay Pacific style?
Thank you for the information!!!!!!!!!!

Relax ! The worst part is after you join and sign the USD 50000 bond and live in Doha.Your sim will be fine and no question asked. Just the assessment.

Enjoy!

Focus on your CRM, Task sharing, and Airmanship.
They will not expect you to know Airbus procedures!
Goodluck!

It must be nice to jump from B1900 to A330
Some other pilots that has more experience with jet time and glass cockpit are stuck on A320.
Does management look at your qualification and experience before assigning you to a fleet? The answer is NO

Hey Milou,

What kind of idiotic reply is this? The guy says he is desperate and in need of a job. Don't be a moron and have some compassion.

You just have to do the sim assesment. You will be in Doha for only 2 days.

If you really want the job I would advise you to rent a couple of hours in the 320 (pretty much same handling and same cockpit as the 330) just to give you an idea of what it is to fly the sidestick and get afeel of the autotrim function.

As far as procedures, the instructors are pretty good in giving you a good briefing and guiding you during the assesment.

I did mine on the 777 and had never flown it before

Good luck

Tintin,

Thanks for the honest reply, If had been a member of that political party, I would probably be on the other side of the equation !

I am very well aware of what is happening there. But I am not a chooser at this point unfortunately.

Once again any info highly appreciated.
