SO keep doing it bro! I am Sorry! This test is nothing related on being honest in your life .If you wanna get in! You need to LIE! Or did you said that you like to be a F1 rider , skydiver? or That you don't like to work in a group? Etc
They ask the Same questions in differents ways 5/6 times. You must study the test!

Best of luck in another test!

Well Yeah, its complicated.

" Would you like to Party or read a book? "

Sometime I would party and sometime I would rated read. How to put it in? no ways you can.

The selection process was fair though. My ATPL theory test, cognitive tests and interview went well. Flew the A320 spot on immaterial of no experience. But still I didn't make. Got the bad news late. Really don't know what they are looking for or what went wrong.

Hi Eccmt ,

I had the same situation as yours. I ve offered LHS position (B737NG) in my current company . But I decided to go for QTR 777/787. (My current company pays well and no bankrupt on horizon , expanding all time) The reason is quite simple I think. You will not fly as FO for infinity . One day you will definetely become a captain. Go for long haul. See new places. Experience different operaitons. Long haul rosters are much more better than narrow body ones. And Qatar will be the only 7 star airline in the world. I also read all positives/negatives things. I will leave my own country. It is more harder. Good luck.

Screening process

Hi there,
I did my PSA a few days ago, the following day got the good news on the result and an invitation to interview with no date, stating that they will get back to me within a few weeks (no rush to me).
My question here is if anyone has received the next text and actually taken the time to fill up a second application requested by them ...Please note that as an advanced candidate you now have access to the QR Group Advanced Candidate Zone (longstory short more s1t to fill up)

Are the still going with Hire right? Cause I haven't received any questionary from those guys.

Anyway regarding the PSA To me it was easy just stick to your answers and be relax, a beer may help

B777 monthly roster


I would like to ask how many trips a month a B777 pilot could expect to fill up his schedule. Would it be, for example, five long haul flights, with two or three days off in between (back in Doha)?

(I've spent a lot of time researching the thread but can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Any comments on how many 'trips' a guy could expect a month would be appreciated.)

Azzuri, the number of flights is about right, the only difference being that in between, you often get only 24h, regardless of the direction of the flights. Sometimes you even get only minimum rest, which means arriving at some 6am and takin off 9pm on the same day. You must not forget to add to it 4 or 5 days on stby, from which you have good chances to depart.

As the hours are factorized, and being short on manpower especially for FOs on the 777 lately, you should expect to fly over 100 hours a month these days, plus stby. 130 hours flight time month is not uncommon as well. You will not have more then 9 days off in any given month.

Lets hope a change is coming, because fatigue is becoming an issue.

Dear geronimoapache,

Thanks for the quick response; I appreciate it.
Do you guys run the B777's with three guys, or are there four of you? And as an F/O in a heavy crew, do you guys log the entire sector from Doha to NYJFK, for example, as 'Second Pilot'? I ask as perhaps you spend a percentage of the flight out of the RHS and may not be entitled to record the full sector.
(I'm a B738 guy that does some long-haul, but seldom with augmented crews and therefore not too familiar with how Qatar would crew their 777's.)

On the so called superlong and ultralong flights such as US and AU, its double crew, 2 cpts and 2 FOs. FOs always log only half the time, thats why I mentioned factorized in the post. For Cpts, they log all on one sector, being crew A, and half on the other sector.

Other routes, some 8-11 hours flight time, depending on the start of duty and some other factors, its 2 cpts and 1 FO. You then log 2/3. If only 2 pilots are needed on one sector and 3 on the other, one poor cpt deadheads on the sector (without being paied, an issue presently being adressed).

So on a typical roster as an FO, you may get some 100 hours flight time, but log only 60.

I dont know how long this practice will last though, as I heard in UAE its being fazed out. Pls someone correct me if I m wrong.
