Go back to your Basic ATPL subjects.
Just the base of them and don't go to deep in any particular subject..
That's the best way to describe it. You just need to study the basics again. I hope that makes sense...

I remember you as NTSO right? So you’re still waiting…no other NTSO had DOJ since this summer ? I was curious to know on which fleet NTSO waiting will be sent.
But for the NTSO waiting be careful guys. I think that due to the low importance of NTSO in the recruitment process they won’t have time to give you information regarding your case. But I would like to advise NTSO to try to contact QR by all mean to get information on your file if you didn’t have any.It paid off for me like an other guy who had reach the age limit previously.Our requirements is different from other qualified pilots candidate.
After 9 months of wait, I find out myself disqualified this summer for a very specific reason that’s surprised me a bit.(no family relation with a QR pilot…so game over)
Only those who received an e-mail with an update expected soon should wait. For others…well … I hope that you have something else than pilot licences to get a life just in case of…You can have one outside aviation too.

RK303, you did your assesment and you passed but finally you were disqualified because you didnt have family working for QR? I find that very hard to believe. I think 95% of those NTSO's waiting has no family in Qatar..

JeanPaul, What I told is exactly what I've been asked by phone by the QR RH. And I've been informed that I have to be a QR pilot relative otherwise no slot available for me.

Since the begining I tried to get the results of my assessment.I don't have a reason to lie about it,this was just an interview and some people in this forum kindly helped me to contact the RH due to lack of information regarding my case. For the rest of NTSO I don't know.I can only talk about what I've been told regarding family connection.Perhaps there is something else but this is all about the conversation I had with the person who hold my file.

It’s ok, there is no drama, I took it as a bet, you win or you loose. But at least l can say that I tried, so no regrets!
But my message is to always keep in mind to get a decent job, having a life and family projects. Which are other interesting tasks to complete ,that may balance the frustration of not being a pilot.

It is normal for experienced pilots to fight for their job because they are already professionals in their discipline. But for a very young guy with 250 hours, you never been a professional and all you know is your dream and passion. You have to try but You have to think about your life if it not happen! Do not wait 30years old to ask yourself questions.

Good luck to everyone! Hope your wishes come true INSHALLAH!

On the move again then? Had enough of the Far East.?

A friend of mine who was a F/O in same company as me some years ago on the B767 when I was in Lauda Air has just joined QR as B777 Captain.He joined as a current B767/757 Captain. Currently line training. If you like I can give you his E Mail address.

Hey all long time lurker.. I'm wondering if anyone knows about the application site being down. I've looked back through the past few previous pages and seen nothing on this. The site I'm trying to apply through is Flight Deck Crew | Qatar Airways. Every time I click on apply now it says the page no longer exists. This has been for several weeks on both Macs and Windows machines. Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks for the info.

Not being disrepectful, but are senior 777 FOs not also offered 787 Captain slots as those airplanes begin to arrive? We have heard from several posters on this thread that 787 slots will be given to the A320 pilots - but I assume senior 777 FOs will also be offered Captain slots on those airplanes as they arrive - no? Not sure how that works in terms of pecking order and who gets offered what.

No doubt the DEC scheme would be maddening and super-frustrating for anyone on the edge of upgrade at any non-western, non-seniority-secured airline like QR or EK. But with significant upcoming fleet growth at QR, can a Senior 777 FO bid open slots in other fleets like an open A330 Captain slot - or are those slots reserved primarily for senior A330/320 FOs?

If you are hired into the 777 fleet today, is the expectation that you will remain in that fleet and not move to another at any point? Or can you bid/request another fleet after a certain amount of time?

This fleet transfer question has always been a bit vague. Cheers for any clarification.

I hear some people have been given DOJs in November & December.
No idea of their fleet or ranks though. It seems they interviewed in Feb/ March, so there is some movement within the pool.....

Do you know when these DOJ's were given?
I know some NTSO's who received contracts / DOJ's in July.. they're joining in Sept/ Oct / Nov and December on the A330.

Does Qatar have a limit on how long someone is in the pool before they are no longer accepted? It seems from reading the threads that some have went more than a year and were successful?
