Well there have always been SOs on the 330, normal track ones, just now I have a feeling there will be more of them than before as the 320 has a backlog on training as it is.
Current 320 S/Os are on hold, CTC guys, etc.
I am ONLY assuming that the newer S/Os will be on the 330 though.

Congrats Hamid. Well deserved!

Just curious - can someone describe what an A330 SO position at QR would entail? Is it more of a "cruise pilot" for long haul A330 flights or is it a mix of cruise pilot and actual FO flying on shorter flights? Any examples? An SO position for an Asian carrier can be completely different from one in Europe or one on the ME.

Cheers for any clarification.

Iver,

It's no different than an SO position in QR on the 320 or any other fleet.
The general ground courses everyone does. Type rating, and line training 86-120 sectors.
I could be a little off with the sectors but is within that range.
After that he/she is a cleared F/O.
Not to mention that he won't even have a cover pilot the whole 120 sectors.

Just him/her and a Captain. And he/she logs the hours.
Perfect opportunity, which exists all over the middle east, except QR allow non nationals to be part of the program(limited number).

You out of a job in a week. Call Qatar and tell them. Also contact Etihad and tell them your waiting for a start date with Qatar and you're avalible next week. They may snap your hand off. How is it your out of a job next week.

Thanks

Global01, where did you hear about the conversion cancellations?
Wasn't the original plan to convert them then lease most of them to other carriers in 2016?

I heard it 2 weeks ago from a Qatari Friend who's currently on the A330 NTSO.. He told me that they had a meeting with the CEO, but not sure wether he was at the meeting or not !!!

He said that they'll keep all the 30 A330s until replaced by the A350 ... So NO CARGO CONVERSION ...
