No, it's called a fleet transfer, and they are lined up trying to get
off the 320 onto something better.

One rumor floating around is that the 320 would be the joining aircraft for everyone.......I personally don't think it is possible as that would triple their training for an already over- stressed traing department.

What is the difference between a FTSO on the 320 and a DEFO on the 320?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but my understanding is a FTSO, once checked to line, is an FO. How is this different to a DEFO once they're checked to line?

Does Qatar Airways accept FO with zero hours on A320,just type rated, or they ask for a minimum experience?

They want 500 hours on type, or you have to do the whole type rating again.

YES,I do confirm, the entry level salary for a F/O is 21500 QAR.
The value mentioned by JGSE(24200 QAR) is for Senior first officer( after 3 years as a operational F/O in the company,(based on your final line check))

hello gentlemen, does anybody knows if pilots who applied for second officers fast track and had been waiting in the talent pool for more than 9 months will be called at some point?

cheers

Sorry I'm talking about what you mentionned regarding the Qatari's salary, what I've heard is the contrary, they don't have 60% difference that's why many of them are leaving for the army where they get that 60% increase of salary

No, Qatari's get extra salary from the government, not from QR. All Qatari's get a share of the wealth of the country.

As for leaving for the Air Force it's because they get an even higher salary and their job consists of them flying around in a mirage or alpha jet for a maximum of 2 hours a month and then going home and relaxing with their gigantic paycheck. Definitely beats minimum rest turn arounds and the crap that goes with commercial aviation.

Hello again everyone,

From what I understand so far, the joining fleet for an experienced A320 First Officer will be the A320, so how long it takes to progress to another fleet (WB)?

Thanks a lot!

If you are already rated ( lets say A320, and you join the 320 fleet)you will be frozen for 2 years on the fleet before being eligible for transfer.( 3 years if you are not rated),

Back to the money issue, apparently the 2013 housing survey ,shows that residents are feeling pinch from rising rents..( Doha news)
Here we are again.
Seems Unfortunately that the rumor about house allowance increase has evaporated with the summer scorching temperature.

Fleet transfer ?!

i know some one ( 320 captain ) with more than 5 years of flying with QR and didn't get a fleet transfer , he said he was begging them for the last 2 years to go to any WB fleet ...and he also doesn't see it coming soon ...he said for now and also for the next years they wouldn't be able to do it !! they are already over-stuffed with new joiners who can not be trained ( lack of Sims , lack of training/safety pilots ...etc) and this issue will get more complicated as they will keep getting their new airplanes .


any body here has any info about ( fleet transfer) currently in QR ? do you know anyone got it recently ??

What are the chances if any, of changing your fleet allocation that has been posted on your offer of employment?

Changing fleet

Hey Speedhold,

So you asked HR? And chances are zero?

I was just about to write hr a mail and ask, no point I see

I heard that in the past one guy got the a320 in the contract
and when rocking up in Doha he went on the Boeing.

But I dont think this happens alot.

Cheers,
Jack
