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?

Who me? I passed already all the selection process... I got a very disappointing email saying that I passed but at the moment due to changes in the manpower requirements I was put on a "qualified and approved waiting list"... And that they will keep me updated and call me as soon as possible...
While my sim colleague was given a 6 weeks notice for fleet allocation and contract...... Mah

They had 2 assessment groups earlier this week, mostly NTR FO's. Info known about the assessment is still correct.

Day 1: presentation, ATPL test, interview.
Day 2: A320 sim.

Ctc wings/qatar airways cadet pilot program

Hi guys,

I have just perused through this thread and to say the least, I have read a couple of 'interesting' things!

Anyways, I'm SP001, a 23 year old from Nigeria, newly married and currently working. However, like very many of us here, Piloting has been my dream since I could say 'Mama'. The conventional desk job ain't my calling....nah! I look forward to a new day everyday because I can't cope sitting at a 'stationery' desk!

I have just taking a leap of faith in the career of my dream by grabbing the bull by its horns and applying for the above program...surprisingly, I just recieved an email that I was successful in the first selection phase! OMG! I am ecstatic!

Now to why I came here...I need a mentor. Preferably a Pilot working in QR. This thing just got serious and I am ready to put my all in, to ensure I get this GOLDEN opportunity. I know I am a rookie, I know I'm but a baby, and most of all, I know I am black! However, I need someone here, who is ready to look beyond who I am, look to who I can become and mentor me into making my life long passion, desire and dream a reality!

I have passed my GCEs, already have a Degree and Masters in the field of Education. However, like I earlier said, I have no fulfilment doing education. I want to FLY. I believe I can do it and with a good mentor to direct, I will get there!

Despite all I have read, I still want to work in QR. Many of you already employed there may have your different grouses with the Big Boss, however, show me a 'Perfect Boss' and I will show you a company heading down the drains. Despite all the claims, counter-claims and criticisms, QR still seems to be CLIMBING! That speaks volumes of the Airline...they must also be doing something really RIGHT and I want to key into this!

Anyone who has successfully used the CTC program to get their employ at QR should please contact me....I need your councel. Any 'good hearted' Father (Captain) or Brother (F/O) with some good advice for me is highly welcome.

Thanks.

Please contact me on: [email protected]

I'm not a QR employee but all I can say is that attitude will get you nowhere in any airline be it in the Gulf, Europe or America.

And you're in completely the wrong section of PPRuNe to get info on the CTC programme.

@officer kite...
that is not my nature. if you have read this entire thread from the beginning, you will discover there are some 'interesting' individuals hereon. I said that to dispel the notion that anyone can attack my persona with those facts...there are way older pilots here as much as there are some racists, so just to let them know I cant be derailed by personal attacks against me i made that statement.
I concluded that part with this:
"I need someone here, who is ready to look
beyond who I am, look to who I can become and mentor me into making my life
long passion, desire and dream a reality!"
That is who I am!
Thanks.
