Actually, I would like to know if, let's say, any 737 rated pilot was unsuccesfull during his line training on the 787 or 777...

Just as a matter of curiosity !

I heard rumours of guys having a had time during their line training...

Cheers

With respect to 737 pilots having difficulty during line training, if it is in fact true, it would likely be due to the various longer haul trips that could be significantly different from typical 737 flying. Typical 737 flying is good prep for widebody boeing aircraft handling experience but not very helpful for gaining the other necessary multi continent traversing experience.

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

Unless things have changed the pnf will likely be the evaluator / sim operator.

Exactly WrldWide...

You went right to the point !

You painted the scenario that I'm worried about.

On the other hand, I'm pretty confident that this is the kind of difficulty that can be overcomed with some study and, of course, a few sectors.

Best regards,

B787 NTR

Hi Everyone,

I appeared for the QR NTR Captain interview in Nov 2015, and was informed about 3 weeks ago that my application was successful. My Joining date in in October 2015 on the B787.

My colleagues who went for their selection in Jan 2015, haven't received any news of their selection. The unsuccessful ones received an email, but the rest (assuming they were selected) haven't heard a word from QR.

What I have heard is that there has been a major reshuffle with the HR at QR and all selections, fleet allotments are on hold. Its also said that all pilots applying for the Direct entry NTR B787 jobs will be getting the B777 fleet, provided they have 8000+ hrs.

If I get any further info, I shall pass it on.

Meanwhile, i really want to know from the pilots who are there if its really a good and "happy" place to work and live for a childless couple in their late 30's?? I have read enough to put me on the back foot, but would still appreciate some other views...the more realistic ones, good or not so good.


Cheers.

Today I received this mail:

Good afternoon!

We are delighted to inform you that you have successfully passed the Qatar Airways Selection process.

Unfortunately, due to recent manpower requirement changes, currently we do not have the adequate position to issue a formal offer letter of employment at this time....etc...


Anyone knowing what is going on?

I also applied a month ago and just got a mail saying my application is in. That was for the NTR A320. But las night wanted to go on and update my application and it said that my application is being considered and for fairness I can't make any changes. Don't know if that's a good thing or a standard thing.

During the assessment we didn't pass through the medicals... Isn't it a little bit strange? How does it work in Qatar? Are pilots having medicals there or they are doing it anywhere they want?
