Hi Guys,

Does anyone know what the deal is with the hold pool at the moment?

It seems things have started moving again as Ive been invited for interview after not hearing anything for about 9 months after applying.

Also, does anyone know if its still completely random as to which sim you'll do the assessment on or are they putting Airbus guys on Airbus and Boeing on Boeing?

Thanks

Sally,

Last year wen I did my SIM, they put me on the B777. I am B737 pilot. I was the only Boeing guy at the time. My FO, unfortunately, was from the Airbus and he had to deal with it.
What position did you applied for?

Good luck!

Rated Boeing FO position, I fly the 737 also.

I have a few mates who did selection last year, they all fly Boeing however a few did their check on the 320 and a couple got lucky and were in the 78.

Anyone know how long things are taking to progress at the moment, as in date of joining after passing selection? Are guys swimming for a long time or has the wait gone down?

Thanks

Applying with Frozen ATPL

Guys I require your advise...

If I go ahead and apply online for the FO position with a frozen ATPL would that be detrimental in my chance of getting an interview if I have enough hours on the Airbus?

Also can I ammend my online application from a frozen ATPL(CPL) to an ATPL when I get the ATPL license in a couple of months?

Do you have the requirements to apply now. If so, simply apply and stop wasting time.

Regard BP

Thanks Black Pudding!

I'm leaning towards that.

But, would applying with a frozen ATPL be detrimental where I am chosen to operate a particular aircraft (e.g. A320) and not the other (e.g A330, A350)? (Where I have the hours on the wide body)

Slash:

Qatar Airways provide temporary accomodation when you join however you can request permanent accomodation if you like or choose to take the allowance to chose something you like.

A320CaptDav:

The policy is upgrade on the same fleet. I heard rumours of uprgade on other fleets but usually the company prefers to spare the TR cost in such case.

Captaintoocool:

As long as you have the hours you'll be fine it won't be detrimental to you.

I don't know if you can't amend your online application but even if you get your practical ATPL meanwhile you can inform your joining coordinator that you have an ATPL license when joining the company they are very efficient so relax.

Just applied for DEC Boeing. I see the position has been placed on hold. Anyone else apply recently and get the same response? Anyone with info on whether this is expected to be a lengthy hold period?

Has anyone, especially F/O's, recently been invited for an interview? If so, kindly pm me.
Also, approximately how long is it taking to hear back for an interview date from the time one applies?
And lastly, what fleet can be expected? I am applying for first officer airbus position as I am currently flying the A320 with 1500 odd hours on it.
Thanks alot. Appreciate the info.

Are any A320 DECs being recruited directly on the A330?
