Hi All,

So - Interviewed in May 2012 - good news July 2012. Holding pool since. Is it time to give up??? Fast Track Second Officer.

Anybody in the know - please shed some light. I have tried emailing and calling and that proves pointless.

"Hi folks,
can anyone tell me info about the medical in QR? I mean, Is allowed a slight color blindness? I know China is a country that doesn't allow any kind of color blind but not sure about QR. Apreciate if one can shed me some light about the medical sight test"

I wouldn't expect to get a job with them if you have even a slight headache.

I, in the past, had a rare but treatable form of Leukaemia (Blood Cancer). I am in total and complete remission. Have been for 5 years, which is in reality the "all clear" stage.

I was asked to provide comprehensive doctor letters, which I did. These letters go into my disease in some depth and are from the world experts. They say I should have a normal life expectancy.

Within 24 hours, a depersonalised generic email says no. Even though I was involved in a personal email process with the charming Brazilian lady.

I'm a type rated, current captain with well in excess of 3,000 on type and multiple other types flown as well.

The woman from recruitment made me feel pretty bad about myself, but of course they won't discuss anything with you. They are above that - or perhaps they realise they are so thick that you'd wipe the floor with their argument.

Anyway, it is their train set and they can keep it.

Good luck, but expect rejection.

They are not looking for reasons to hire you.

They are looking for reasons NOT to hire you,
and you gave them one.

What else needs to be said.

Obbie,

What reason did I give them "not to hire me"?

Your answer is as discriminatory as is theirs. Even if you didn't mean it to be.

I understand it is their choice and it clearly remains so, but be careful how you sound, lest one day you befall something like this.

It isn't a nice feeling.

It's because fully trained robots only know how to say yes or no and not to have an opinion.

That's why the capitalists are trying to automate everything these days.

But to be honest people around these parts don't know anything about courtesy. Most of the people in the GCC are from the 3rd world and life in these parts is basically like living in a Jungle. You just put your head down and try to get to the top, nothing here to do but to make and spend money. Quite sad. Hopefully we'll see better days

@ vinouche33 , there are few from bahrain air whom I know personally , they ARE joining this year. Maybe they didnt take you along And maybe they knew some bahraini finance guy who is qatar CEO's buddy , any bells rringing ? Best of luck. And ethopia yes today I spoke to senior guy and he said that those who have not received joining by the time update mail is generated, they all will receive the delay mail. According to him joinings for FOs have been dished out already. Best of luck to all of us.

medical qcca

Hi all,
Does anyone know how many days after the joining date we undergo the QCCA MEDICAL ?
I'm not talking about the residence permission medical but the class 1 for the QCCA licence.

tks

Anyone been able to join QR with more than -8 dioptries and do they measure it from the glasses or contact lenses.
Do they perform a full medical check (initial requirements) or do they just transfer the JAA class 1?
I am surprised to see the QCAA having this limit, when it is gone from most other CAAs medical regulations.
