I did!

Just trying to figure out if I stand a chance to be called or not.

Does everyone with the requirements get the invitation?

Yes you do

Is your application still in the system. Did you upload a passport photo ?

@Black Pudding

Yes, in the passport copy I was asked to upload there was also a picture. I will keep the application up to date on a weekly basis with the hours flown, you never know...

@Stick35

How much experience are we talking?

I am by far the least experienced of the lot.
The only thing that I can think of is to keep the profile up do date...

I see people here with less experience than you and me but getting an phonecall. Dont put all your hope on this carrier. I have the impression if u dont hear a thing within 3 or 4 months, just forget it and try to find something else.

Well it's only a week I have put my application, still time to wait.

Maybe they don't value too much experience in GA.
As you know not the best of time for us business jet pilots, unless rated on the big toys...

NTSO

Hello all,

The assesments for NTSO´s didn´t come to a complete stop.
A friend of mine who attended a FTSO interview in the beginning of april was in a batch with FO´s, FTSO´s and one NTSO (the guy came right out of flight school, non qatari.. believe he came from the UK).
All communication regarding NTSO interview results / contracts did come to a complete stop.
I am very happy I got the chance to do the assesment but after almost 4 months of waiting without any results my hope of getting a positive answer is slowly diminishing.

I hope that someone indeed has some intel about the selection / intake of NTSO's and especially about the fact that almost all NTSO's who attended assesments in the beginning of january didn't get their results yet. (Some NTSO from beginning of december are waiting for 5 months+ now, just for their assesment results).

Goodluck to all of you!

Anyone have details on employee pass travel? Does it include parents and siblings? What is the priority like? Could you give some examples of costs?

Thanks

Hi guys,

I received email invite for interview 27th May(FO), but unable to attend that date due prior commitments and work.

Any idea if they just put you onto the next available interview slot, or is it back to the back of the queue? I applied in January, btw.

Thanks in advance.

NT/FT

hello,

If you've done the interview for NTSO and you will reach one of the requirements for FTSO is there a chance that you can join as FT?

After the interview in doha i got hired in a company flying 737's and if i see the waiting times here there is a big chance i'll reach 300h multi engine multi crew.

Kind regards
