When I applied for Type rated captain, my 737NG hours counted. I see they've now been deleted for all those in the same position.

I still have an FO application in and that's still "under review", a month later. When do most people hear from QR?

Requirements for the DEC Type rated Boeing changed. 737NG hours were accepted, this has been removed now, as you can see on their careers website.

Hence why the Captains application says screened and can't be withdrawn I guess. Ho hum, FO it is then.

I know it's a piece of string, but roughly how long under review to phone call?

AFAIK, you must have no pending training bonds from former employees when joining QR. They even ask for proper documentation (release letter).

787 Ground School and Simulator Training

Brief question: Where are the initial training and simulator sessions taking place (787)? Doha or abroad? Thanks.

The last friend of mine who went to the 787 did his inital training in Singapore... To tell the truth, I think all them went to Singapore at first(787 fleet). There's an Alteon Training Center there !

What I heard is that the inital training abroad is much more relaxed than the one "in the house".

Yes not accepting NG hours now for DEC, if you are in the training system you "maybe" ok, if you have a DJO as a Captain, based on NG hours but didn't start the training probably change to FO. No outstanding bonds accepted. 787 training in Singapore.

For Boeing training you have many options:

1) In house in Doha, STAR course mostly.

2) Gatwick or Singapore, Full Course with Boeing instructors then QR OCC back in Doha.

3) Same as above, but short course with QR instructors.

Regarding DEC coming from NG, for as much as I know they just closed the application. If you have passed the assessment you should be ok on the 787.

Silver68 is correct, latestpilotjobs site says 737NG
Avenger is correct, Qatar website doesn't include the 738NG

I would guess Latestpilotjobs is using a old advert

A few people I know recently did the QR selection and used The AirlinePrep App from AirlinePrep's website. They said it was very comprehensive with all the feedback questions.

Thanks and good luck to all of you ;-)
Hi guys,

I'm just reposting my old post which hasn't been answered.

Any kind soul around to share the entry salary breakdown for an A320 FO ?
I haven't been invited yet in Doha so I don't know what they offer.

Thx ;-)

Hi guys,

I had a stomach surgery on feb 2016, and I didn't fly for 3 months because of the surgery, does that mean I cannot apply for the A320 captain position since in the listing it says "Hold a current LPC and has flown the A/C in the past 18 months prior to joining Qatar Airways"

Thanks
