Narrow body time only helps when upgrading to the A320.

My head is swimming after reading the last 50+ pages... I know I saw answers/figures somewhere that answered my questions so I apologize for re-stating these questions here and now.
What can a potential newhire expect to make per month?
If a pilot is unable to take vacation allotted within a year are they paid our for the remainder of the allotted vacation?
If an applicant has ~500 on the A320 or B737/MD80/DC9 could they expect a particular fleet? Or is it simply based upon company need at the time of hire?
To answer any other questions that may help here are my credentials.
4800TT
~1000 TPIC (Turboprop and light jet)
600 heavy-ish jet (150,000lbs+)


I know 3 people at QR and (based upon their reflections/experience at QR) for a single 31yr old this seems like a logical place to progress in my career for the next 3-10 years.
I am open to your thoughts, questions, and criticisms.

Applied for A320 DEC (8000TT and 3500 PIC) in Dec 14 and was asked to update my medical in Mar 15 but heard nothing since. Want to know if they are still actively hiring for the 320? My application status is still "NEW"!


Wondering if holding a Level 4 Eng is hurting my chance of getting an interview. I had 5 until last year then almost everyone in my company who had 5 was downgraded to 4 including guys who had 6 on their EASA license!

Just been informed that I'm in the holding pool/waiting list for A320 DEC just like you. Will you let me know once you've gotten the contract. Thanks.

Hello guys.
I went for the interview late March for DEC 787 NTR.
2 weeks later got the apparently standard letter that I've passed but due to man power changes I have been placed in the waiting list.
That wasn't what they told me during the interview. They said they needed lots of pilots this year so I dont know what are they playing at.
Any one in the pool been contacted lately?
Is it a stardard procedure and spect a contract at later date?
For sure they also said that are at full throttle with all the training going on and maybe dont have the capacity.
Anyhow I got other things lined up but it would be nice if they were a bit more honest about it

Its very a simple

Do the work, smile and be positive and you will have no problems at all.

Make sure you read what you have to, Part A, FCTM, Part C and MEL bits and know your SOPs and scan flows. Be prepared.

Horror stories are normally from those that expect to be spoon fed and have an axe to grind. Those that don't have any problems simply get on with life and don't waste time or energy here posting crap.

If after you arrive you find this place is not for you, simply do your time and move on. I work with many who have been her 10 years plus and who are happy have no intentions of leaving.

If you plan to come here and bitch, make sure you have someone to bitch too as many are not interested in listening to anyone who is not mature enough to deal with their own crap. Deal with it or move on.

Been here 6 years now and have no reason to look elsewhere yet. Take each day as it comes. I am happy with my job (320 fleet)

Best wishes and good luck to all wanting to come here. Hope you receive good news sooner or later.

Nice post black pudding.

I share your point of you but I understand that people have different needs and expectations.. Sometimes even induced by a well done propaganda made by airlines to attract possible employees that at the end are not well mantained.

i am looking forward to leave Europe and its slavery low cost airlines.

As one just finishing training I agree completely. Training is no harder here than at any other airline. In fact, it is easier than my previous airlines (several). They have given us more than enough time to study and get our stuff done. I would describe the training pace as relaxed. Most of the instructors I had were outstanding. They knew their stuff, knew how to teach, and were genuinely interested in our success. I am very happy to be here.

The requirements for the Fast Track F/O are at the time of joining.
If you join before obtaining the Fast Track F/O requirements then you will considered as a normal F/O and have to follow normal F/O upgrade procedure and requirements.
With your 3100 total turbo prop/jet time I do not think it would make a difference if you join QR now or after you obtain the requirements because by the time you get your hours from your employer or with QR you will have spent the same amount of time, about 3 years.

@sambca..RE: training
As others have said I found the training a more relaxed pace than my last 2 companies( both USA) and the instruction was top notch...most were very nice and very good instructors.
