Also received request for hours update. Previously B737 f/o and since Feb A320 f/o with 315 hours on type. Should have at least 500 hours in next three months if that is the requirement.

I hear the tests focuses on ATPL theory, but did any of you rated FOs with 1000+ hours on type get technical questions about your aircraft type?

Did they give you any other reason or just that management explanation?? I read in the other foro that a guy was told that becuase he was above the age limit fro NTR FO he was remove from the pool.

Anyway its bad, every time I ask my friends inside Qatar they say that they are really desperate to get people, they need too many but im not sure what to believe.

Have they called any NTR FO or FTSO???

Frenzo - may be a blessing in disguise for you. I would try the 2 big UAE carriers. Not sure about EK given the RJ type (whether competitive), but you may want to try the other big UAE carrier.

Good luck

Hello Guys
I had filled the online application a week before for TRFO. I m TR on 320 n 2000 plus hours on type. I got a reply from their team saying my application is incomplete and I need to attach my CV, references Academic Qualifications ....

But to my knowledge I have attached all the prerequisite and had sent the application. Dont know why its says incomplete.

Any comments & help needed

Thanks guys for some of the reply. Yes of course Im trying the others 2 in Me.
no explanation what so ever. I dont believe is an age issue bc Im 38. unless thats a problem for them. Also I never call them or bother them like some other guys that have been taken out of the Talent pool. Anyways Good luck to those of you that actually make over there.

Sadly, You were all warned

I have avoided posting for the longest of times as this thread can be very circular, covering the same Q's many many times.

Unfortuneatly its a shame for those waiting for long time to be removed from hold pool. Believe me, many more have been removed, but not told.

You were all warned by my and others many hints at this situation, so in essence you cant blame QR as you did give them supreme control over your hope.

Move on with your lives and dont hold outfor this place.

A/C orders does not equal good airline.

QCAA medical
Hy, do anybody know where can we pass the medical class 1 in Qatar ? if you have adress and number it will good.
Thats the strangest of Question for a person who tell that he knew pilots in QR and lived in Doha.

Hi there.

I know that you are most of the time right and its a pleasure to have someone to really speaks what he knows even if its bad news, many of us have been waiting here for a year or so and now been told thank you and good from QR is so frustrating and unprofessional, very bad for the image.

Anyway, are they removing people randomly or they are following some criteria?? Are they going to call anyone else from the pool of FTSO, NTR FO??

I can be consider myself lucky because im still working but I know some guys that are just waiting for QR to call and not doing any pilot job, even if in the email was clearly stated, "Do not resign from your current job"..

Any info will be highly appreciated.

Hi All,

Anybody who went to the ADAPT assessments in the recent few weeks heard back yet?

As for removing people from the pool - Ive got a feeling that if anybody, those who are SOs would be since they don't need expats for this role. But surely, surely they should be telling the guys....

While I have to admit the hiring process has been very frustrating.....lack of information and long wait times, and now many people being kicked out of the pool after waiting so long, I am still mildly impressed that they continue to call pilots that have been swimming for almost 2 years.
Even the better airline from across the way has been less than perfect in its hiring process. Many people in the pool were told they must re-interview after swimming for a year, and some DECs were told their offer was no longer valid...unless they wanted to be FO.
I don't think they are intentionally trying to screw anyone....just poorly executed plan
