Just had an email saying I have been shortlisted for the 787/777 FO but that it is now on hold and I will be called for assessment "when the opportunity arises"

Anyone got any info on what that means and if/when things will move again?

Thanks. PM me if you want.

Agree with Linerider. Get everything in writing and know how you can exit if possible.


With such a big investment, I would personally probably choose to stay closer to home at Easy if I were in your situation. European labor law will not protect you in Qatar. That said, QR could offer a great cultural and flying experience if you are open to it and you know what to expect going in. You want to understand how long you would need to stay to fulfill any obligations at QR in case you don't like it.... Examine the down side before signing anything.

MMOREL,
A little bit of Simple maths:

The bond duration is 36 months(3 years),the amount is 50.000$ For a new type rating.
BUT for the first 18 months they will deduct 50% of the total bond amount from your salary(50.000$/36 monthly, for 18 months).
This 50% will be refund to you after 3 years from your date of joining.( not applicable in your case if you decide to leave before 3 years.

So if you decide to leave after 2 years for example ..you will basically still have to pay (50.000/36)x 12( prorated ) on top of the 50% that has been already deducted from your salary for the first 18 months.

50%+33% = 83% of 50.000$=41500$ that you will have to leave to the company if you leave after 2 years from you date of joining.

salamalikum2 thanks for the info
I thought they will just keep %50 of total bond if you leave after 18 months .

The article is a collage of different events that is made to appear
to have happened to these three individuals. Every event listed in
the article has happened and is accurate in its details. I believe
however that the stories are from several people and not just three.

"I believe however that the stories are from several people and not just three."

And what difference would that make?

Hi all,

Question about the interview process? Are the questions in the 'latestpilotjobs.com' for the QR gouge any good? Or a combination of that, ACE, JAA bank, etc etc... I know it's impossible to know it all. Referring to the 50 question multiple choice tech quiz. Any latest updates? Thanks....
I promise not to stay out late....
