I would like to fly the triple seven, the questions I have are about after completing the pilot screening if they call me to fly the 777 or 787, can I choose any of them? What about the time for upgrating for a captain position there and the requirements? What is the salary base and top and how much per hour in USD for FO? Do they have eCrew system or something like that where I can request flights for some destinations? (the company I am right now I can bid some fligths, for example, if I ask JFK, that is gonna be a bunch of JFK`s on my schedule for the next month). Talk about the benefits on the country and for flying back home or leisure flights. Thanks.

No, youíll be put on any fleet they require you and this could be after you arrive and not the fleet mentioned on your offer letter.

What about the time for upgrating for a captain position there and the requirements?

Cant comment as itís company policy. For new joiners anything below 5 years is a bonus. I would plan on 5-6 years but it changes as time goes by.

What is the salary base and top and how much per hour in USD for FO?

PPJN is pretty accurate

Do they have eCrew system or something like that where I can request flights for some destinations? (the company I am right now I can bid some fligths, for example, if I ask JFK, that is gonna be a bunch of JFK`s on my schedule for the next month).

Yes we do and also a flight swap request application

Talk about the benefits on the country and for flying back home or leisure flights.

Can earn good money, see the world. If you join here, you should plan to live here and accept the country. Itís not difficult. Many have been here for years and have no intention of leaving. Some love it, some hate it and some tolerate it. Those that hate it only last a couple of years and then thankfully leave.

You say you would love to fly the triple ? Really, why ? If flying the triple is more important to you than anything else, I suggest you think long and hard before coming here.

Why? The T7 not being assigned to new joiners?

Hi guys
I did the online psychometric tests 5 weeks ago.
No results received up until now. Only a confirmation that the test was completed on the day I took it. No more communication after this.... really strange and depressing.

​​​​​​Anyone who can clarify? Is this waiting time normal? They don't react when you fail?
I applied for Cpt A350....

I finished the application online, and the next day I received an email asking me to upload my CV, valid instrument rating, and copy of the last two pages of my logbook. I have an electronic logbook (excel spreadsheet), so i took a screenshot of the last two entries and stitched them together in photoshop, and my instrument rating is on my ATP. Is there any advice on how to get this done? I emailed them asking for guidance, no response yet. I'm in the US.

Also, I saw a Qatar Cargo 747, are they flying the 747 and hiring into it? Just curious about it, nothing serious.

Evening gents,


A few questions for the knowing....

What paygrade does one start at if joining as a DEC on the 320? And how much is it?

Is the housing allowance sufficient if one wishes to rent an apartment for two people in a decent area?

Thanks!

Paygrade 1, I think it's around 32.5kQAR plus flight pay and some allowances. Housing allowance should cover a nice 2-3 bedroom in a nicer area or a villa further inland. However expect company accomodation for some time

Thanks!

In light of the salary being taxfree the base pay seems ok. I just wonder what the flight pay can amount to.

Rgds,

Ramrise

Probably the unmentionable one as they're currently sacking people according to rumours

The tech exam is somewhat harder now than it was 9 months ago. I used the latestjobsnetwork exam database and it didn’t help that much. I did my ATPLs 20 years ago, and the terminology has changed somewhat. None of us thought we’d passed it but thankfully all but one did. Be prepared.

Is there anyone who has gone through the pre-selection for QR7700 Type rated first officer Boeing only with B737 experience?
I have 1,900 hours on B737NG, valid ATPL, ICAO level 6 and class one medical. So I thought I met the requirements, but I got this email;
we regret to inform you that you have not satisfied our pre-selection screening criteria and as such, your application cannot be taken any further.
I would much appreciate if someone explains this.

The minimum requirements at the moment are;
  1. Type-rated and currently flying on B737 (EFIS) &or (NG), B787/B777/B767/B757//B747-400/800 with a minimum of 500 hours on type. -> I attached the last 2 pages of my electronic logbook.
  2. Valid ICAO ATPL or Frozen ATPL (ATPL Theory passes/credits) -> I attached my ATPL.
  3. Valid Instrument Rating (IR) -> It's written on ATPL and I don't have a separate certificate for IR.
  4. Valid Class One Medical -> I attached my medical certificate.
  5. English language proficiency level 4 or above -> It's written on ATPL.
  6. Not older than 55 at the time of joining Qatar Airways -> I'm okay.
  7. Holds a current LPC and has flown in the within the past 12 months commercial airline prior to joining Qatar Airways -> My country/company don't produce such thing. We just do the annual sim check and if you pass, that's it. No certificate or documents are given.
  8. Minimum of 1,000 hours in Multi Crew, Multi Engine jet commercial airline experience. -> I have.

Yes, I have. I had 1015h only on B737 and passed everything, starting in october.
Maybe your current company has a bad reputation or they're not looking for low hour FOs anymore?

Anyway, I recommend you to try again in 6 months!
