Just curious what type of notice is normally required to be given to your employer in Europe or other countries.....seems 3 months is common in Middle East so not sure if that has something to do with them planning joining date 4 months later.......in my case I said I need to give my employer 2 weeks notice and my joining date was 3 weeks after contract received.

The same here...

Applied in March, if I'm not wrong...

4000TT, 3200hrs on the 737 (500 CL + 2700 NG).

I just got e-mails requesting my Translated ATP Certificate, even after sending it.

A friend of mine who applied after me and has exactly the same qualifications wasn't requested to send the certificate and already took the PSA (unfortunately he failed).

I think the pace of your process will depend much on who is analyzing it.

They give more priority to guys with widebody experience ie 767/747s after that only they consider guys on the 737/717/MDs who applied for the 777.

Hi guys,

Any other SO requested to do the PSA (Pilot Suitability Assessment) test? I've been asked t do it early this month, no new received since then. I hope it's good news as I am patiently waiting for my turn to get a DOJ! ;-) Any other feedback would be appreciated, thanks!

For info: I have passed the selection tests in Doha early 2012, as normal track second officer. I'm in the holding pool since mid-july 2012, and didn't receive my "mid-year" update yet.

Regards

@Paparoach

I don't think the "middle of the year" update is out yet.
normal track second FO
Did you mean a fast track second officer - FTSO or a non rated first officer?

I meant "Second Officer". I'm NOT fast track, and I'm NOT type rated.

There's no such thing as second FO. Either FO or SO. First and second officer respectively.

Best of luck

Indeed, my bad... I meant "Second Officer"...

Looks like my brain wasn't at its best at work today ;-)

I will edit my previous messages for the sake of clarity!

Its good that QR is now asking the the SOs in the pool to do the PSA. SOs have to pass the PSA. You dont want to fail now!!

My A380, My girls, My airport.......in his little mind he is the only one
at the airline that matters.

This airline is finally starting to really become something, it has out
grown the little trash talking mouse and now needs a real CEO that
doesn't humiliate it every time he opens his mouth.
