they don't know my FAA ATPL means im instrument rated..

Hey are there any pilots applying to QR with an FAA ATPL?

I have submitted all my paperwork and they replied saying "please provide proof of an instrument rating" and placed my application in an 'incomplete' status.

The FAA ATPL, doesn't specifically say "Instrument Airplane" because it is already a pre-requisite to have an instrument rating to get an FAA ATPL...

A friend there said that its probably an un-knowledgable office assistant that won't let my application go further until they see the actual words "instrument airplane"

Has anyone ever heard of this problem with QR before?

There is or was a link on the FAA.gov website that allowed you to pull up your airman certificates etc...I remember the ATP rating saying something about the instrument rating not being listed seperately as that is a prerequisite and understood....
You might want to get a copy of that but as someone mentioned, if you use the dates from your last proficiency check, it should work

Holding pool

Respond to a previous reaction about the holding pool.
The holding pool is NOT empty, because I am still in it.
I passed the assessment in Feb 12 as a FTSO. Which according the latest update is not requirement anymore.
In the mean time I am a captain on the turboprop.
To be honest, I lost hope being called anymore.
Good luck to all of you!

Exclamation Application form!

Dear All,

I've submitted my application long time ago and every time I get a feedback that my application is incomplete because of a missing document.

Now, I've submitted all the required documents and I got an email from them says that: "This is to inform you that we are currently processing your application and will update you in due course.
We appreciate your interest in our company."

and I never heard from them again. When I try to log-on my application it allows me to go and edit what I've submitted while I wasn't allowed before. Did they change my application status to "incomplete" because I can edit it?

Any advice?
Thanks!

The 10 days off is not a guarantee, but at least on the triple 7 that has been the norm for me, at least since I finished line training end of May.
I often see pilots just going to Thailand or someplace for few days to get out of town


Thanks for the info..Yes I can see that on the 777.I will be on the 320. Spoke to a pilot the other night on SKYPE and he said the small bus is a whole different ballgame.Its the workhorse and you will work..ALLOT!! Oh well if I can get it, its a job.......it is what it is.

Thanks bro,

but did they send you any email informing you that your application is not completed?

I haven't received any email from them except the confirmation email.

But they should send us an email to inform us about the missing documents!

I sent Cazar an email but the reply wasn't useful
