The cognitive test has 4 sections-
1) sequence figures
2) maths test
3) dice rotation test
4) memory test

Total time 1hour.

Hi everyone...

Just to update on my process:

Applied as a Non TR FO 787/777 (3300hrs on 737, 4100 TT) back in march and yesterday I received an email saying I didn't make thru the PSA.

Seems quite confusing ! They look to be crazy after new applicants, but the failure rate still pretty high, even in pre-simulator stages (the same happened to 3 friends of mine with similar experience). Anyway, looks like I don't meet their "psychological profile"...

Maybe in 6 months from now I'll try again (in case I'm psychologically changed ).

Good luck guys...

Well I did read the post..n to be honest,the pay structure, I mean flying allowance, deadhead on EY,blablabla doesnt really shocked me tho..it is what I get in my current airlines n mind you,im flying a national carrier..and for some of what QR give u,i know some other non middle east national carrier do practice the same..so for me it all really do depends on what u seek by making the big leap to the dessert..be well informed and make well informed decision..after all being a pilot we r trained n expected to be accountable for all our decision and action..so make ur studies b4 u decide to join,do join if u think its a right move and dont whine while u draw ur paycheck every end of the month..it is indeed an open sky out there..middle east is not the only place where u get to fly airliners..and I do appreciate the fact that it is not fairytale out there in the dessert,especially QR..

Well said Winter

You do your homework and then it's your decision to join!!!

We don't see many posts about a certain airline in the Middle East ! Wonder why? Oh, it's forbidden to write about them!! Talk about iron rod!

Joining Qatar Airways (QR) - all you need to know about it (threads merged)

Just a quick one, got told I have an interview in Doha in a few weeks for FO 777/787, currently on the 738 in Europe with Europe's so called favourite low cost carrier. I know roughly what to expect from the computer testing side although I did see someone mentioned number sequence! What's that? If anyone has done the sim recently would appreciate a personal message and heads up as to what the approximate sequence was and what they thought of the whole process and Qatar in general. Also if you are a boeing guy, did you do the sim in a boeing or an airbus? Good luck to anyone going soon.

B-777 sims

Does anybody know where the B-777 TR sims take place lately? I heard London and Singapore. Anywhere else?

Wolf, buddy, not anymore.
We have now two 777 sims in Doha, and all the training is done in-house.
Cheers!

@ Wolf....RE 777 sims
London, Singapore, Mumbai, and Dubai have all been used recently.
As mentioned, with the second 777 ,mostly in house, but would expect a few to be outsourced if during busy period.
I had heard once the new sim was running well that they would update the older sim which would take several months.

Hi Guys
Anyone knows how long it takes to get your assessment result after you have done the sim ride?


Your feedback is appreciated.

Re: sim profiles and interview....lots of info in last 300 pages here but my advice is "latestpilotjobs.com". They have a paid interview prep with latest info for about 40$

Re: 787 sims.....there are two 777 and two 787 sims in Doha so most of the training is in house....as the 777 fleet is bigger and one sim may be down in future I would expect some of the full type ratings to still be sent out to Sin/ London
