No more 6 months ratings validity to new joiners

A guy who made the assessment this week said that the "6-month rule" of ratings validity has gone for good.

Rating just need to be valid at the date of join.

I'm in the joining process and I've just wrote an email to my joining coordinator asking to confirm that. I was planning to revalidate my rating out of my pocket but I'd be glad to save a thousand bucks. Finger crossed.

I passed in September and still swimming. Some September guys already got a joining date and guys who passed before us didn't.

Don't know their criteria, since there's a mix of TR and NTR guys among these new joiners.

hi everyone,


I am a 25 years old, qualified commercial pilot licensed with frozen atpls, I am very frustrated that i have not even given an opportunity to be interviewed since my graduation last year.
i am currently working in the construction field and it is really difficult when you are being devalued especially when you have worked so hard and invested a big amount of money into becoming a pilot, and build up a career in the field of your interest and what turns out is that all doors are shut.

i would really appreciate if someone can direct me or even advise me find my dream job. i am really feeling down. i have the minimum commercial pilot hours.

Hi Turabi,

You are not the only one. We have been there too. Some have got jobs after 15 years of getting CPL, while working as truck drivers and attendants at fuel stations for survival. So keep your enthusiasm high and do whatever it takes to land in a job. As a thumb rule, take up the first flying job you get, any aircraft.

I suggest investing in a CFI rating. This will help you get your first flying job, stay current, learn more, build PIC and ultimately your dream airline job.


Cheers

During the interview, are there any technical questions? Or just HR related, Personal and situations ?

Many thanks.

I know 3 guys who interviewed in Oct & Nov and they got start dates in Dec & Jan. I guess it all depends on your experience level and type-rating(s) and of course how well you did in Doha, that determine how quickly you join QR...

Best of luck!

Swimming

Hello guys

I've passed also, but I'm also swimming in the talent pool.
One detail: The simulator examiner told me that he would recommend me to the boeing fleet.
Many friends of mine, who were invited / received de job offer recently, were invited to the A320.
Maybe the Boeing fleet are suffering a lack of instructor or SIM slot. That could be the reason of this "talent pool"

Yes it's due to the high demand. Stay patient and flexible, have the paperwork finished!
you might get a short notice offer due to someone not being able to join on their assigned date.

Congratulations by the way!

flexibility

about being flexible...
Based on what I have heard or read here, it looks like that people with a longer-than-normal notice period (say 3 months) have only little chance to join QR. They have a habit of calling people with a DOJ which is a lot sooner than the end of the pilot's notice period. If you want to be fair with your current employer you cannot take the job at QR because they'll always find someone else to be assigned for that training slot you got. What do you guys think about it?

They called me on minimum notice period - after waiting in silence for 6 months.

They also required six month validity on my IR at date of joining - this would have meant me me organising an off-schedule IR.

Quite difficult finding an available type IR examiner at short notice.

They only gave one date opportunity - when I asked them if the had any other dates they said no and withdrew my application as I couldn't make that one date.

@Cuillin Hills

Was you IR elapsed? Normally the first 3 month after expiring it should not be a problem to renew.
