No interview again; one size fits all. But you most likely have do undergo the infamous PAT up the backside if you haven´t already.

If it is the case that QR are presently hiring noTRd then your new hours figure should make their eyes sparkle. You need to make them aware.

I don't understand why the advert is for non rated FOs but that you must be current on some other kind of Boeing with 500 hours, might as well say be rated?

What about those with more than enough TT, but no Boeing rating?

If the PAT test is still the adapt test they were talking about a year ago i think i'll manage it, have done the same test as selection for my flight training.
Their conclusions were wrong in the end anyway.
I did had contact with them and they would see what they could do.

fleet specific route maps

I'm quit sure I've asked before but i can't seem to find my own post again.
Around 1.5 years ago i found a website with the routes for each aircraft (330/320/319lr)
Does anyone knows if this site still exists or where i can find the routes for B777 and B787

Adapt test

As the flying apple mentioned, this test is subjective , unprofessionally conducted, biased and the OWNER is well connected (the elderly chap).
They underwrite conduct which is not delivered , on none of the promises. To neither party! The psycho's are full of them selfs. While the 'operational' guys ARE all the opposite from the above. Since they're checking tangible properties of a candidate and are objective , once they reckognise 'talent'. Now go tell them this and let them critisize this as PRO's. Oh and btw I would tell them this in tha face. Especially the lady.

Flying Apple,

Don't know of any fleet-specific route maps, but you can now add EDI to the 787 routes effective next Spring...

So is a B-27 Stratafortress, but they are not accepting that either.

Training expects you to be glass proficient before you start.

A guy in my class was Dec on 777 and had no glass experience, although he had 25 years on 74 classic.
I think they often make some exceptions, but don't know what to tell you other than try.

It has happend recently, but don't expect more than the A320 not to be disappointed. Everything is about the requirement they have at the time of your joining.

Fast track Command

Does QR really practice fast track command. As of what I know if one completes 18 months and achieved 5000 hrs...one will be considered
And 2000hrs wide body and total 6500hrs to get wide body command
My question is....does this really happen in practice?
Your replies would be appreciated

I don't know if Qatar had a fast track command before....there was a company notice that they were starting fast track command about 2 months ago, but don't know how many people have started since then

Fast track

I would really wanna get info on that...coz at my present company I'm expecting command in around 8 months, but I've been offered long haul with QR and heard that u would have a choice to stay on long haul and get your command as long as you meet the requirements.
If that's true...I'd rather prefer going to qr wait for another couple of years and getting my command on the big bus
