I see Qatar is hiring for first officers again. Does anyone on the inside know if they will consider you if you are typed and current on 73NG?

Yup, do the online app....

I was Rollingtk the online application, I'm type rated and current. But there is a question in which they ask if you also have 500 hrs on type. However in the requirements of the from page do not mention about this requirement.

Don't understand and don't know why they do that...

very bad news for those with more than 1000 hours on jet and no TR... It all comes down to the A320 TR at the end of the day.

PAT TEST

I passed interview last may 2012, I'm in talent pool TR 320 and yesterday I received An email to join Doha for PAT test. I'm current on A320 but I don't fly since october 2011 and when I passed my interview I decline any opportunity around the world because I should to join QR and now QR would pilots this recency on A320 as well. Is it correct?

Learn more about Qatar Airways and then take your first step to becoming a Qatar Airways pilot.

Qatar Airways Pilot Training - Cadet Programme | CTC Wings

95 000 to 100 000. I don't think NTSO's will be needed if this kicks off. May be not even non rated FTSO's

It is all nice that they are expanding and i hope that the swimmers get a job soon. But there is 1 thing i do not understand: is there really a need of the customers from worldwide to fly to qatar? I mean, is there really a marketing investigation done to see if there was really a demand? I have the impression that the goal,of emirates and qatar is just to be the biggest and profitnumbers are not an issue.

iQatar

even if this starts today by the time first batch is ready it will be at least 12 or 18 months the fastes... so thats not an issue for the swimmers and when i did my interview i was told that around 500-600 pilots a year will be needed, so i think they will have to continue with the hiring.

Stick35

From Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi within less than 7-8 flight time you can reach 2-3 of the worlds population, fast growing economies and global cargo markets, so I think they are really in a good position to make profit.

I always see and listen people talking about Qatar, Emirates.... but I think Turkish has a very very agressive strategy as well, and a huge progress in the last years and they expansion plans are even bigger than EK, have a look at the last years and you will see, the only problem they have is Ataturk but they are soliciting for a huge new airport, and Turkish has a big home population plus big touristic potential as well..

that's a very good consideration ... luckily some countries don't know how to use condoms yet!

You mean 1 year and 6 months until receiving a contract? Or until the start date? My guess is that almost all swimmers in the pool wait more than 1 year and 6 months until they finally get their ticket to come to Doha.

Talent pool

I've been reading the thread and I was wondering what exactly is a "talent pool". Can anyone shed some light on it.

The talent pool is where a successful interviewee is placed after having received the "congratulations you have been accepted for employment with Qatar Airways" e-mail...you are placed into the pool until your fleet allocation is completed and you are offered a contract and class date... how long you swim in the pool depends on your qualifications, and training slots available for your fleet allocation...
