They have rejected FTSOs. The NTSOs are still in the pool.
Reason for rejection ... Can't say!

And as for 2014 ntso applicants - they won't be called soon. Reason - there are ntsos still waiting in the pool to join. Some of them have joined, some still waiting.

As a turboprop captain with 1500PIC on glass. I'm now eligible to apply for the "non type rated FO position" that was recently advertised. Does anyone know which fleet, given I have no jet time I would be placed on if successful? Thanks

Ftso - fast track second officer
ntso - normal track second officer

I assume, you mean the individuals who were called for assessments in 2014, selected and now placed in talent pool --- Well they are calling people to join in a slow rate. I can't say exactly before june ( actually no one can say that) but first it will be for those who are waiting from a long time and then the new ones.

@ boeing777er

just go through few pages back and you will know that QR has appointed HIRE RIGHT. Anyways, just go on an answer them. They are from QR to do your background checks. Dont worry!!!
Also, congrats as I guess you are the among the few FTSOs who have received their offer.

@pilot4eva

ME IR doesn't need to be valid at the time of your assessment but your medical should be.
Interview - To be honest, it could be anytime. This is QR. Anything can change anytime. But as of now it won't be anytime soon.

I read this one on Pilotjobsnetwork, does that mean you can't take more than 10 days of your annual leave days per month?

"Roster no more than 10 Days Off a month for ALL fleets. Further no more than 6 days in a row."

The six days off in a row does seem to be a restriction, and they normally do not allow more than 10 days off per month....this is not referring to leave as you can take 3 weeks in a row, or often I take 1 week with a day or two off in the front and rear and have 10+ days off in a row.
The six days off refers to bidding a block of days off each month.

Fd Talent Pool

There are several things about this talent pool that are very surprising and disappointing, and clearly prove mismanagement on part of this airline. They put too much emphasize on type rated pilots, without acknowledging that there are other major important factors that makes a good pilot; their total time, PIC time, CRM skills, leadership skills, their adaptability, decision making, and basically the overall package that the pilot offers. Everything is left out and type rating became the main issue! Despite the fact that they provide training for their airplanes, I don't understand why lack of TR is a problem? I know this, because, I know 6 other people in the pool, that are highly skilled pilot, but don't have TR, and the airline called low time pilot with TR. This is not such a poor airline in Middle East or Africa with a poor training facility desperate to hire type rated pilots to cut costs! This airline like Emirates hired lots of non type rated pilot including captains in the past, trained them, and they are part of their pilot group now, and this was done when the airline was not even in such an advanced state as it is today. By keeping this pilot on hold and hiring outside people, they are damaging their reputation, which is really hard to repair. As they are thinking hiring those pilots was a mistake, what they are doing now will be their tomorrow's mistake, since they will lose/already lost many of those qualified pilots, that they spend a lot of resources and money to interview them! Please make better decisions in the future!
