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!

Thanks in advance.

For those dealing with the personality and cognitive tests, just google'em (you got the test names in the e-mail). There's a plenty of 'how-to-do's and sample tests online. Good luck!

Regards to all.

Practice, practice, before you do the test. Try to get the logic on each one of them. I don't have the links here since I did it on my computer at home, but take the tests' names on the email you've received and google'em. There are plenty of websites with the test explanation, samples and free tests for training.

In the personality test, TELL THE TRUTH about yourself. Don't try to play a character. They'll ask you the same question in different manners along the test, so be consistent.

Good luck.

For written Exam- Go through any JAA ATPL Question Bank online..latestpilotjobs.com,aviationexam.com,turbine turbine. etc. It will have 50 questions in 60 minutes.Interview will be a Non-Technical round with personality and situation based questions.For sim nothing extra if you have experience on Jets,just go through some training videos of emergency procedure videos on Youtube of different airlines.They expect you to demonstrate basic CRM,ILS OEI,normal ILS,EFATO,Weather diversion etc.Remeber to be stabilized at 1000 else go around strictly.They will fail you fly an unstabilised below 1000 approach no matter how good you landings are.Use you co-pilot and always communicate.

Hey All,
I have been invited to the interview. could anyone pls guide me on what to wear for the interview. I have only one suit that I was thinking of wearing for the Interview. but Interview and sim check are on two consecutive days, so should I wear the same suit for the sim or should I wear my uniform (it doesn't have a coat) to the sim check. Dress code according to them is business attire.
Guys pls advice.
