Paramount is a recruitment agency that was doing some of the selection for Qatar. They obviously were told their services are not required for the time being. Whether or not this is an indication of anything is to be seen. As I posted several days ago they were supposedly told that recruitment would slow while they concentrate on clearing out the over-filled pool.

AIRFRANCE PILOTS AT RISK

The article says that the 450 pilot concerned by this are the ones with more than 25 years service with Air France, and it's a voluntary leave with a prime in the pocket , and it is not immediate , to be achieved by 2015 .....

At the moment, QR are not exactly desperate for Pilots as they were last year.
By the end of this year, when a lot of guys are done training, rosters and things should look better in general.
Even the new NTSO are assigned the 330 due to no space on the 320.
Ofcourse they will need Pilots for a VERY long time, but at the moment I personally don't think they need them urgently..
So nobody will be given 9 months leave. IMO!
Ofcourse anything could happen.


Yes benefits for parents, siblings, and extended family.
There is a list in the mail. (brother in law, mother in law, etc.)
10 ID50 and or ID90 total.

SO to 330

Now I wonder why people leave the company..... people with a lot of experience to the 320,, for 3-4 years.... then moving to CAP on the same a320....... 10 years stuck on the a320... WELL DONE QR!!! and they still think why people leave??...

Tail,

It is an unfair industry. A lot of things depend on luck, and that applies to almost everywhere.

Stick35,

If you're in the system, you WILL be called.
These were my assumption from what I see, but guys on holding pool will get their chance.
Don't stress it mate.

Tali,

The word on the street is that the shiny, new 787 fleet will be largely crewed by pilots sourced from the A320 fleet. We will see if that actually happens. Potentially 60 787 airframes at QR would require a lot of A320 pilots down the line (of course not all 787 pilots would come from the A320 - but evidently a substantial number - if plans do not "change").

Again, it will be interesting to see how the 787s are crewed.

Good News

Hallo fellow aviators received my pass email today but they stated that they are
Going to delay my offer of employment and DOJ.They stated that they are putting me in the Flight Deck Pool of Talent. No time frame provided.

Has anyone received such an email? Or is it their standard pass letter.
Please someone give me some info as to the meaning of this.

I am interested to do a 2 hours session on a b777 to prepare for an airline assessment. Anyone could recommend a training centre to do this at a reasonable price?

I know someone who interviewed in April, received the pass letter in May and yesterday a similar delay letter. His also said there would be an update at the end of July.
Sounds like they are at least trying to keep track of everyone. I guess at least they acknowledge your in the pool.... Better info than some have received
