No poaching agreement, couple of guys have switched and joined QR from there. Go ahead and apply.

Hold File

Hi All,

First post on PPRuNe. Recently went to doha for interview and was put on the hold file few days later. Guy flying 767 got a decemeber joining date.. I am on the NG. Are they favoring 767 guys?

Anyone recently been put on the hold file? The HR guy said they need 600 pilots, but looks like they have been saying that for couple years when you read through here!

I went in the hold pool one month ago, also NG, and in the Middle East already. I think it's just sit tight

Hi All,

I've been accepted for a 777 slot starting later this year, if anyone has some info for me it'd be great to get some feed back.

I've had a good look at some of the FO rosters and they look quite intense, certainly a lot more than what I previously flew in long haul. Are they as hard as they look? Does it get any better as a captain? (I believe the rostered P1 logs the whole flight?)

I'm quite young still at 35 and my sums show I need to do at least 15 years before I can contemplate retiring. How many guys make it that far? Anecdotally it seems most seem to reach their fill after 8-10 years

If I recall correctly, they don't give you a starting day according to time entering the pool,
You get a start date depending on your previous experience and how well you did on the interview. It's not only a pass/no pass, you get graded by the assessors hence why some people get a date shortly after the interview and some have to wait for a year.

They're requiring 6 months of the type rating validity before the DOJ. Be careful with it before quitting boyz....

As others have said - be very careful as to meeting their requirements when you decide to put your notice in to your current employer.

Even the joining e-mails are vague in this respect. You need to ask the right questions to the joining team. I am thinking, in particular, of licence currency (LPC - they don't seem to be aware of ATQP in Europe where the IR is signed every 12 months) and release letter from employer (very vague on the e-mails).

Particularly relevant if they give you a start date that is just over your notice period to current employer.

Welcome to the Middle East.

Fleet transition

Hi Folks,

may I ask is there any chance for NG rated FO to join Airbus fleet? If yes, what's the bond if any. I'm 3000h TT and 2700h NG.

Thank you.

Hi folks,

Anyone attending interview on sept 25/26th? (If positive, PM me). I've applied in June, made the online psychometric tests an got the invitation few days later. I'm 737NG F/O, 1.400 TT, 1.100 on type.

We could share some study material. I'm basically studying by EASA ATPL summaries and doing a lot of exercises (Latest Pilot Jobs interview gauge and The Airline Pilots.com).

Anyone with troubles dealing with all the paperwork? In advanced candidate site, it's required a "Copy of NOC - Qatar Airways Group Employees". Where can we get it?

Thanks and good luck for you all!
