When did they start mmorel? Before or after, March when the PAT started?

Does this mean ppl in the talent pool will be invited back to Doha to do the test or will they do it when they join?

I think those who were interviewed before 1st april or march 2012 were offered letters.and when they signed then they are not bound to go for PAT . those who did after that are undergoing pat. Any TR waiting since 2012 ?

September update

Hi All!
Just received the September update.
No major changes compared to the last one.
Basically they only need type rated people, ocassionally a non type rated one. No requirement for SO, nor FTSO. But... it can change.
The next update is in January.
I guess I won't be seeing you in Doha, but...it can change.
Cheers

Almost same email again, at least they are calling people.

Hopefully if they solve the problem with the new airport we will see faster hiring rate, but I'm not sure when we will see that.

It's not the first copy and paste email, I think they should started being more accurate after all of this months of waiting.

Hi all,
today I recived email from FD Talent Poll with update like you, I'm very curious to know how many pilot we are, I understand that not all pilot that passed the selection program in Qatar read on PPRuNe, but I ask all to report a brief note about:
-date of interview
-rank
-which aircraft

I estimate that the Qatar Recruitment are calling pilot at least march 2012.

So that's my situation:

-04 june 2012
-FO
-B767

September Update.

I know we prefer a detailed report or update....but the way I look at it, getting any type of update is a good thing for me (and I can only speak for me) because it lets me know at least I'm still 1 of the many pilots in the pool...so any update is a good one for me....and again (I CAN ONLy SPEAK FOR ME)

Ladies and gents ..please move on...
Are you gone spent you entire live smashing your head on the wall and waiting for an answer from Qatar airways and put all your eggs in the same basket?
I do understand QR might be the only opportunity for you to get a job ,or to fly a jet aircraft..but I'm also afraid Qatar airways will continue to play with your nerve like that for a long time...
Not worthy.

As far as not receiving an update.....really that is anyone's guess!
I would say it does not automatically mean anything good!
On the other hand I didn't receive the Nov 2012 update, but in late December was offered a class date for January, so it may mean you are somewhere in limbo other than the pool?

I think that if you don't receive updates, you are a step forward....waiting for a call pretty soon. I understood that they advise you when you are removed from the pool for any reason. Obviously this is only my opinion; the point is that we all need to go for the PAT before joining if interviewed after april 2012. Talking. About FOs....do you agree?
