Will the initial 350s be staffed internally or is it possible for newhires to be assigned it? Is there a lot of internal interest in bidding the 350 so far?

The new airport opened on April 30 for ten low cost carriers...fly Dubai was first scheduled flight to arrive. I am surprised at the lack of press( maybe they didn't want to chance it might be further delayed). I drove over and walked in airport, it seems very nice and with the extensive landscaping and being built out in the water it had a nice atmosphere....felt more like Southern Caifornia. The 10 airlines operating there probably don't account for enough traffic to change much as far as congestion in the old airport though....I guess every little bit helps! Per a notam from the QCAA all airlines are to be operating there starting May 27. The transition will be difficult and probably messy but we desperately need it!

Talented Swimmer

Succesfully finished interview and PAT two weeks ago and got email for swimming pool today!
A phrase from the email I got today;
"Our next planned update will be issued mid of the year and in the interim please communicate any changes that may affect your start date to "

Does it necessarily mean that I shouldn't expect anything(email, employment etc.) sooner than July?
By looking at NinjaStars journey, should I expect 5 months to start?
Anybody less than 5 months in the talent pool?
ciao

Joining journey

Hello again. In my case, I am Boeing rated, 737NG to be exact. I know at least about someone else who interviewed succesfully before me but no date yet and he is airbus so i figure that must have somethig to do with it.

That's what I was told during my interview too. They need people at Boeing side ( actually interview captains from 777 told me they were short of pilots). For Airbus, I was told just the opposite. Over-staffed at the moment.

Before you guys convince yourselves that you'll be flying 350s and Boeings in a few months, realize that many 320 pilot training bonds will start expiring soon and they are offering fleet changes to the people who have earned it. With all the movement expected on the Airbus fleets i expect that most of you will go there.

Pilotbcp

If it is so, Why they say that they are recruiting for 777/787?

And on my interview they also told me they have a need of pilots on 777.

I am rated 767 and placed on pool yesterday.

Thanks
Tiago

How many days ground induction.
Time to get RP.
When do you get to fly the aircraft.
How much time to line release.
How many days/weeks to get RP for the family.
Lots of more questions.
If somebody who is already there can answer / PM.
Thanks

It will take 6 months before you are released to the line.
Leave family at home until you are released to the line.

There are no exact answers here for anything, you better be the type
that doesn't get bent out of shape if things don't go according to plan.

Question

Hi All. So much information here and very little time to search through.

I am now a Qatar wings Cadet Pilot and will start training in September. And will be on the 320 in 2 years.

Please could someone help me and answer what these supposed strict rules are?
I'm not worried, just curious.

Also any other information in terms of contract, hours etc. would be greatly appreciated. :-)

Greatly Apreciated,
Dora

Hi all,

Mostly for the new joiners. Company called hireright contracted to carry out background/security checks on behalf of QR. Does anyone have an idea how long after you submit everything, that QR then sends you a letter of offer for employment? ( Assuming all goes down well!!!)

Thanks

You will received it within 2 weeks. I actually got my letter of employment while hire right were still conducting there little interview on me. Give hire right more than enough information to keep them busy and if they can contact all previous employees. You will not have a problem.
Your on the home stretch...... Hire Right last hurdle.
