If you join with the hours what is the predicted upgrade time on 777 or 787?

also how much is a 1 bed in a nicer area of town to rent?


Cheers

While it may be little quicker on the Airbus fleet, especially the narrow body I would say upgrades are in the 5-7 years range on the Boeing fleet.
starting next year the new 787-900 start arriving at a fast pace so may have some affect.
generally speaking a one bedroom in Westbay or Pearl Qatar can be around 9000-11000 Qr per month.

Is there anyone who went through the pre-selection and got invited to the screenings for Boeing type-rated first officer recently?

Greetings anonymous PPRuNe handles!

I’m looking for some guidance, more so advice on any information pertaining to the sim assessment aspect of the selection process expected in Doha (due to go over month end), So my questions are;
  • Any idea what simulator the SFIs/TREs use to conduct the assessment? Or is it potluck subject to 777/787 availability?
  • Another concern, being a NTR (738NG RHS) candidate, I want to be better prepared due to the obvious lack of familiarity with the 777/787 flight deck layout/set-up, and also to get some clarity on handling characteristics, the FBW trim ops etc. Barring hiring out a 787/777 sim for practice and going broke in the process, can anyone recommend any helpful resources that I could use for prep in order to to ease the nerves in a vastly unfamiliar sweatbox?
Any additional advise/tips on the above posed queries would be much appreciated!

Thanks

E.M

Hey all two quick questions, seriously considering Qatar, I would apply today but would be quicker for me to wait in my current position and join in a few years as DEC than to join now and wait for upgrade...

How does the schooling work? Do you get an allowance and does this cover the actual cost of sending kids to school and is there a limit to how my kids it covers? Also is there any difference here in terms of CPT or FO allowance? Currently have two in primary and in negotiations about another one! 😂😭

Lastly how strict are they re the 6000 hours jet time for DEC? By the time I have 2000 jet PIC I will have well over 6000 TT but likely only 4000+ jet time if that makes sense. All answers appreciated

Is medical part of the assessment in Doha or after you are offered the contract?

Does QR still providing housing allowance?

Nope, youíll be issued with a Qatar QCAA license. I suggest you keep your home country license valid

To those in the know.

What is an approximate wait to hear back from Qatar?

Completed the application 6 weeks ago for DEC B787 and got the following reply-

"This is to inform you that we are currently processing your application and will update you in due course."

Do they give feedback if they are not interested in the initial application?

Has anyone been invited to interview for the same position recently?

Thanks.....

Are you taking an interest in joining Qatar seriously ? Itís very simple, you pass and move onto the next stage. You fail, application ceases.

Pass fail rate is 50/50. If you prepare for it, should not be a problem. Maybe someone on here can advise you were to research for preparation.
