QR will send you home if you don't have a valid license. Not their rules, but QCAA.

An expired type rating is not the same as not having a valid license.

Hi guys,
just an info please: I received the good news talent pool email few a weeks ago, (I'm A330 Type rated FO) but a bit worried because I'm not flying since January and the TR is expiring on November... do you think I should renew it at the SIM before joining QR ? I know they do provide a couple of FFS before line training regardless of you're type rated or not: do you think that it should be better to keep it current until joined or not? Thank you very much in advance , Cheers !
If this was my situation I would revalidate my typerating before joining QR. It will give you a brush up of the aircraft without having QR instructors eyes on you and when you finally get to do the training with QR you will have capacity to focus on QR procedures, instead of having to get comfortable with the plane again.
It might cost a bit of money, but it is for your own benefit and not QRs, and they might appreciate your effort in keeping current.
Just keep in mind that they might give you another aircraft when you finally join.

Congrats on being in the pool and good luck.

Exclamation

Until you sign the contract you are not in QR, so don't play with your future and keep your licence and TR up to date, in this business you never know...

@ rain dance maggie

Hi,

I received the offer of Employment (a320 FO) in May, and the Holly M.
in May as well.
I have managed to speak with my coordinator in the beginning of
June, she told me to wait for a week or two to hear something from them, but
haven't heard from them since....

All the best to you, and hopefully we will meet in Doha soon.

Hi Guys!!
Signed my contract 25th of april for FO A320 and I am still waiting for the contract to come back. Reached my coordinator a couple of days ago by mail and got the answer have patience we will get to you shortly . Of course I have also received the Holly M mail a month ago and replied to that also.
Seems that Q have a lot of pipelines in and they all are slow at the moment.

Cheers

@woodman

Thank u for your response,we' re almost through the same situation.
Hope we meet soon...

@aviatoreboy

What do u mean by ''I am still waiting for the contract to come back.''?
I do not think that the ''Offer of Employment ''(not the contract) must come back to u.
You just have to sign on it and state the target joining date only.Then u send it back to them and wait....

Thank u

@CMDGreen

It can be as short as 1-2 months from the date you have received the mail to as long as (more than) a year and the waiting can keep on going. But hang in there, not so far now.
By the way, when did you receive your short listed email?

Hey Rain Dance Maggie

Thought that you would receive some kind of response from the company one way or another after signing.

Has anyone been shortlisted, or called for an interview since the talent pool was started?
There have been rumors that they have their numbers for the next year( which doesnt make since if they are still calling people for interviews)
Hopefully as they start to get the 787 and few other aircraft that we will see the pool start to drain!

"CBs in Vicinity" What fleet are you going on?

Maybe your future office at QR? Picture of first QR 787 at Farnborough

Not bad! Total of 60 787 on order and optioned. Someone said that after an initial 5 airframes in 2012, and then starting in 2013, QR would receive a new 787 every 3.5 weeks... I'd take it if they offered me the right seat up front...

Ive.

Thank you for the picture, very tempting. I can still smell that new plane smell when we sat on that simulator. I remember, when sitting outside the machine, waiting for our turn, a friendly Captain who was passing by, telling us "have fun guys but it will be a long time before you'll get to sit on the real one."

Any idea, guesses, how they plan to fill in those seats?? Existing bus drivers or tripple seven ones? OR the fresh recruits???

Cheers.

The 787 are going to be flown by QR pilots who have worked their asses off for the company for the past 4-5 years. Mostly the guys from the 320. New joiners, you will most likely be put on the 320 and you will work your asses off for 3-4 years before you move onto something else.
