Several 777 FOs I have flown with recently were about to start command training and anticipate 787. Maybe there is a swell of FOs that are reaching the upgrade level. I don't know but that would seem a possibility.

Cheers

Somebody mentioned all upgrades( presumably from 777 fleet) will start on 787.... Haven't heard anything officially, but if this is true May explain the hold on outside DECs

The fact that a large wave of senior FO's approaching their
command upgrade was a "unforeseen circumstance", should
indicate to you the level of incompetence that runs this airline.

New Joiner Boeing F/O's...

Any comments as to which fleet 'new-joiner F/O's' might be assigned in the near term?...

We were told that the ones coming from "Boeing" will stay on boeing and there will be no change between Airbus-Boeing pilots anymore, as a "new" company rule... So people with 737 will go on 777. But since I am not in, I cannot confirm it.

U

There is no written rule any of us have seen, and noticed a few exceptions here and there, but in general the Boeing rated pilots tend to go to 777, until last few months joining directly on 787.
McDonnell Douglas, B717, MD11 generally can expect Boeing
Everyone else seems to be fit into Airbus fleet somewhere.

What's the difference between an SO and an FO? Are you considered an SO until you are released not having to fly with a safety pilot?

How flexible are they with starting dates once you've made it through the selection? Can you negotiate it or will they offer a "take it or leave it" date? will you have to redo the assessments if too much time passes?

thank you very much

Hello,

I've had an offer by QR and accepted it. As all you have experienced before, I really worry about the place my family will live in. If you kindly advise any tip to choose the best company housing or to avoid the worst as a fo here and now, it will be highly appreciated.

Sim Assessment

The PNF will most probably be another candidate. They are not particular about check lists and procedures. Just normal handling and some universal procedures.

Are the Boeing fleets like the 787 still drawing FOs from the internal A320 fleet?

ATPL Exam

Hi,

Ive got an assessment coming up in the next few weeks. Im currently looking at the latest pilot jobs stuff, just wondered if anyone knows if the ATPL exam focusses on any particular subjects? Or if the database they use is available anywhere?

There are literally thousands of questions to review so don't want to waste time.

Many Thanks

Guys...

I saw a few pictures of the compound's apartments and they didn't draw much of my attention !

What the majority of pilots do ? Take the company accommodation or opt for the allowance and look somewhere else to live ?

Any chance I could get a nice 2 or 3 apartment on the Pearl or West bay for 13,000 Qars?

By the way, I heard the initial training is pretty intense, is that true ? Anyone has an idea of what's the failure rate ?

Cheers

Failure rate? Do you mean for NTR pilots?
