B777 April roster

Showing 11 days off with another 2 days "infringed" by an hour or so. In no particular order.

A three day pairing with days off on either side.
Two three day pairings back to back.
A four and three day pairing back to back.
And, of course, some training.

Altogether not a bad month of work. The roster appears quite flyable.

B777 pilots have the "option" of freighter flying. For the very long pairings, Qatar Airways keeps a letter on file from the pilots willing to undertake these operations.

@ Phshoe:

That's what I was told too, 3 years ago... Then QR kicked me out of the holding pool. I applied for the position FTSO.
Have a back up plan.

Cheers,

cccc

QR joining

Hello everyone!

I went for the assessment in Doha on 15-16th March. Got a mail from them on 24th March stating that I cleared the selection process.
In the interview, I had informed them that I am already serving a notice period in my company and will be able to join Qatar as early as May, 2015. How long till they send out the official contract to me on mail(with the Date of Joining and Fleet allocation). They said the formal offer letter follows within max. 6 weeks. Will I have the formal contract letter by 15th April OR they will actually be taking the 6 weeks(or more ) stipulated time to inform us? When does the medical happen? Can anyone shed some light upon it.

Does Qatar normally try and accommodate your preferred dates for joining.

Kindly advise.

PS: My PPC is due in April. IR is valid till Oct 31st, 2015. Hence, I am trying for May joining. They said we need a minimum of 5-6 months on the IR to cater for any delays during conversion.

Anyone got the contract offer recently for type rated A320, CPT?
Just to know if this "manpower requirement changes... " is affecting just me or the whole A320 fleet.

QR Screening Sim Type

It seems the A320 is the sim they use for the assesment these days can anyone who completed the screening at QR this year confirm that is what they used as they state its either the 777 or A320 in the preamble??

kickback i think it varies due to availability.
Looking at the last 3 months, 8 of my friends took it on A320 and 3 of them B777. However i think the majority takes it on A320

Sim Check

The simulator check for my batch on 16th March was on the Minibus. However, I would like to add that there are two assessors and they do check on the availability of the 777 and 787 simulators. On that day, both the 777/787 were booked for training.

Of course you should apply to any and all carriers that you may be interested in. Don't just pick ONE and hope.....

When did you apply flyboy? I applied back in Feb. Status just says 'new'. When do you usually get asked for further info? Or is this the beginning of QR going through the NTR applications?
