Recruitement

Hi guys,

Any idea if recruitement for FO's and FTSO's / NTSO is still going on (on a very low frequency). What numbers are needed for 2013?? Again 700 pilots or much less? Hope all talent pool guys will be placed.

Is there a flow through of pilots from Qatar Executive to Qatar Airways at all?

Good friend that joined early june on the A320 tells me DOJ assignments will resume towards the end of the year. Hang in there fellas cause I'm in the same boat.

From my understanding you either get hired to the Exec side or airline side. Benefits are almost identical and but I'm not sure if guys go back and forth.

Friend of a friend that's been there just a little over three years on the A320 is going to 777 class this November but still in the right seat though. Another friend of another friend that's been there just under four years also A320 FO is in upgrade class on the A320. Looks like one wanted the PIC turbine while the other preferred widebody type but still as FO. To each their own.

Depends on requirement, possibly 2-3 years, but then expect another bond.

In addition to standard upgrade requirements, Widebody Command Upgrade requirements are:

a) 6500 hrs
b) 2000 hrs are flown on aircraft in excess of 100,000kg (A321 is about 93,000kg mtow)
c) 1000 hrs and 2 years experience on the fleet for which the command upgrade will take place
So an A320 CA would have to go back to being a WB FO before becoming a WB CA?

Have QR started the training of A320 FOs into the 787 yet? Obviously the Boeing delays don't help with training schedules...

Anyone going on 10th Sept??

I heard that they have more than 300 pilots on the pool, how long will it take to clear this, and, are they hiring as much as before??

ArmApp, at the moment you'll do a CCQ the bond is 24 months at $30k, you'll pay 50% of it back for the first 12 months (equal deductions from salary) and then after the 24 months get all 100% of it back.
