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 that´s 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.

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..

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?
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...

So if QA is now advertising and interviewing type rated F/Os, does this mean the non-type rated F/Os in the talent pool will have to wait until there are no more type rated applicants?

So why is Qatar accepting applications from type rated Fo's if they have pool filled with applicants?

Maybe it's cheaper and quicker for the airline to look outside of the talent pool and hire/train type rated applicants rather than invest time and money on someone with no time on type.

ADAPT - Astonishing Dumb Aviator Piloting Tasks

This is SYMBIDIOTICS tool to acess Pilots !

That was the most crazy tool i ever saw in my life as an Airline Pilot.

5 secs to answer questions while you flying a game (LOCK ON) mission, as a A10 ThunderBolt pilot(single Crew?lol). While you listen a English old fart talking to you over the radio. The acft can`t be trimmed and you have to look 90 degrees to the left to acess the questions.Why i cannot use the second guy(trainer) as a tool to answer the question while i am flying the game? I am sorry Capt. "RAF" but that was a waste of time.Maybe this could be good to acess a wanna be Cadet Pilot,but to acess real experienced pilots over this is a JOKE.
5 secs to answer question whispered to you while you are gave ~ waypoint vectors ~. Symbidiotics is amazing way to loose money Fast. Well Done Qataria for wasting 410 Pounds for each applicant current pilot doing Upgrades / fleet transfer.

My advice 4 an aplicant. Be an Actor!

QR-Villas

I know this has been probably done to death here in this forum and otherwise. But sadly, due to some OS glitch I can't access the search tool. Just upgraded to a new OS.
Oh well.
Can anyone give me information on what kind of accomodation QR gives its new joining wide body DEC's. The ones who join with family that is.
And is there any choice given to the pilot as to location etc. what would be a good location choice.
I believe utilities are looked after to a certain degree.
Sorry for the drift if any. But I'm trying very hard to compare EY, EK and QR.
Seems these days it's quite a close match.
Thank you all in advance.

Thanks

King on a wing,
There was a rumor that the company is gone increase the housing allowance...well i guess it was just a rumor unfortunately...as for the trend ,it looks like the the rental price is going up again...so it means lots if us will have to put our hands deeply in our pocket in order to offer a decent roof to our family.
I don't really think there is a close match between EK and QR...
You can't compare EK vs QR...(as you can't compare Dubai and Doha).

Java,
Many thanks for your candid response. Really appreciate that. Is Pink villas and Ain Khalid the only choices available to captains. Had heard something about some Al Markhiya villas...?
And most importantly Java, is this updated info sir. Just so that I can plan if I have to.
Thanks in advance.
Thank you salamalikum2 for your input.
