I see that there are alot of orders. They say they need 600 pilots for this year only. How many planes will come and at what pace?

Just been through the interview / sim phase and awaiting outcome.
They told me, this was 3 days ago, that they have no spare training capacity for new hire BOEING, there will be hold pools for some time.
Airbus different story, wanting people to start in August. That is of course for Type Rated Captains and F/O's. I guess any NTR's will be hired onto bus predominantly 330 it would seem.

I tried to attend the open day that Qatar held in IST but i couldnt go,though a close friend of mine working for THY was there. He is heavily experienced on the 738 and TRE/TRI .They told him that they have enough applications from type rated captains on the Boeing fleet and the chances for 737 guys to be hired within the next year are slim .

On the other hand a couple of expats FO type rated on the 777 and flying for THY were told that the selection process for them will be fast .

its a fact that Qatar is looking for 600 pilots within the next 12 months .

Any advice on time to left seat on the Boeing for a new hire with a bit of previous non-Boeing PIC time?

Was this for FOs on the Boeing as well? I know that for captains, things are moving slowly on the Boeing side.

My impression was, all Boeing into hold pool. But to be honest I was more interested in the Airbus deal, so may have missed the info.

don't think so but can't be sure.

Send in online app, they then ask for your CV etc and get you to do an online fruit loop test!
Once done you get an invite, assuming you not fruit loop, to Doha.
Day 1 is a HR briefing on salaries and benefits etc, then all do a 1 hour 50 question multiple choice tech exam, which is non type specific and covers anything you might have done in your Comm ATPL exams.

IF.. you pass that you get to go for interview with 2 pilots. Questions cover non type specific events in your flying career where they like you to give as much detail as possible. i.e., did you ever fly with a difficult captain and how did you handle it.

Not everyone got through this bit, but if you do, you get invited to sim check next day.

This could be in 777 for Boeing people or 320 for Airbus.
If you NTR you seem to fly a different scenario to TR who it would seem really had a good workout with failures TCAS' etc.
NTR, for me at least was all raw data manoeuvres followed by a sick pax scenario after take off.

No feed back from sim guys allowed, I guess we get the 'don't phone us we'll phone you' in a couple of weeks.

Tip, if you paperwork or logbook is not perfect, you get binned straight away, no tech quiz no interview.

I did the pats test last week, normal psychometric test, and a quick verbal reasoning and quick pattern recognition.

Both the verbal and pattern recognition it gives you a sample test to try

They are now advertising for "Cargo" Captains and FOs on 777 and 330. Strange to hear that lots of you are still in hold pool and waiting when they are still recruiting. Are they actually operating split pax / cargo operations?

CP
We were told, on 10 April by HR rep at interviews that if you join you do both, Cargo and Pax.

As for now the 777/330 fleets do both cargo and Passenger operations. The passenger flights are normally the bigger portion of your schedule.....but can expect about 1 cargo flight per month. I believe they are seriously looking at splitting the operations, although not sure why?

Can anyone ( Casablanca???) give me an idea as to what a A320 skippers roster is like.
Just been offered the job, A320 skip..... but I am current A330 with current employer and need to see if there is a major difference in the lifestyle.

Thanks
