"The new airport is ""supposed"" to be already finished..it doesn't take too long I think..."
Freddie,
It was supposed to be completed by 2009 or 2010..( initial schedule)!
The opening has been postponed every 6 months for the last couple of years...

What difference does it make what level of experience other applicants have?

They're only accepting type rated applicants at the moment, so if you meet the requirements outlined in the advertisement, put in an application. I can guarantee, you won't be considered for an interview unless you put an application in.

Has anyone else received an email from recruitment asking for an application update due to being in the talent pool for a rather long time?? Does this mean anything, or is it just a general update?

I wouldn't imagine there would be too many type rated F/O's in the world willing to move to the middle east to do the same job they're currently doing, with less seniority and a longer wait for a command !!

Hopefully the guys in the pool will hear something soon

Recruiting type-rated FO's

When you look at their website, career site...
QR is hiring type-rated FO's on all their fleet.
Does anybody know what this mean for all the people in the pool who are not type-rated? Will they jump in front of the queue as it happened in the past with Spanair and Tunisair guys/girls? Or will they be placed in the pool and wait till their time comes up AFTER the current pool has been emptied?
Cheers to all us swimmers.

Simply put, why would they be setting up a cadet program with apparently sooooooo many awesome people in the talent pool?

They realise that they cant keep pilots, especially when the worlds economy's start to produce confidence.
Cadets can be locked in for long periods, are naive enough/or desperate enough to pay big money to be trained without guarantee of a job. And this helps QR keep the perceived competition high, the perceived illusion of 5 star airline equals five star treatment of staff etc. wrong.

If you have been waiting for more than 18months then chances are your not being considered. The way i see it, is bet on the rest of your life, not on waiting for QR to give you some kind of freedom/career! Wasting your life waiting.

Good luck to ya

Hey disagreeable,
What's your story? Why so down and "disagreeable" on Qatar Airways? I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just curious.

They have a "holding/talent" pool full of pilots but will continue to have open days for pilot recruitment this year. I assume CTC has taken the place for any future FTSO or NTSO recruitment.

It looks like Hamilton Pilot School is the lucky one!

Dash-8/300 hours

Dash-8/300 hours

Hi,

I have Dash-8/300 hours, which is 19500 KG MTOW (Not 20,000 KG). Not sure if that qualifies!

"Minimum of 1,000 hours in one of the following categories; Multi crew, multi engine jet aircraft, or command turbo-prop above 20,000 kg MTOW or high performance military jet (Multi Crew Co-operation certificate required)".

Is there any non type rated pilot with Dash-8/300 hours who applied and accepted.

Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

I am referring to FO application not NTSO.

The MPL programme by CTC Wings for Qatar Airways is to train Ab-Initio pilots to end up being First officers only on the Airbus 320.

Qatar Airways Pilot Training - Cadet Programme | CTC Wings (check course milestones)

They should still need NTSO and FTSO on other fleet.

Thoughts anybody ??
