Taviator,

Thank you and congratulations you get a new job
I'm afraid whether they see the company's reputation. It's not something I can change...

The sim lasts 20-40 minutes and you get a short info pack sent to you by email one week prior. Assessor will occupy other seat, so just you and him in sim. You only operate as PF. No tricks or surprises, just lots of "grey areas".

The challenge for my group and a preceding group was that there was no briefing whatsoever before going into the sim (no powerpoint presentation, what was expected of us, how the session would run, sim difference to our current type, basic familiarisation, test condition limitations etc). For example, TAC cannot be de-activated so it could be a surprise to you after rotation if unaware (737 guys)... luckily I asked at 100kts. Take off power set as soon as you're in the seat, should you stop your capt. and insist on a full take-off briefing and before take off check-list (i.e. is your assertiveness being tested). Are we doing checklists (ECL). Nobody really knew.
Only 1 out of 5 passed the sim stage in our group. Only 1 out of 4 passed sim day before.

Having never been to Doha or flown on QR before, it was a very positive experience. You have plenty of time when day 1 finishes to go explore the city. You cannot rely on what people say about the city from 10 years ago and I was pleasantly surprised. I look forward to going back for a longer visit.

try submitting a copy of the LPC next time. I find it hard to believe there is no document anywhere. Ask your training dept to give you a copy of your grades? Or get a document from your local CAA. Someone somewhere has to issue something which demonstrates you are current.

PS welcome on board for the new guys.

FlyingOW,

Thank you for your advice.

Is this the LPC people're talking about and you're given hard copy of this after your proficiency check?
http://hub.easa.europa.eu/crt/docs/v...27e55a4127aff8

Then, I'm sure we don't have such documentation at all. Instructors fill this up, sign and take it to training department, so there isn't any chance to make a copy of it and no 'valid until' or 'expiration date' are written on anywhere.

Would there be any good way to prove my currency at next application?

Is it really that difficult to obtain copies of your training records from your employer? Have you even asked? Should be as easy as an email.

The validity is determined by the date of examination which is certainly stated on whatever document is produced.

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?

They screen on the 787.
As a 737 Pilot you should have no concern and won't need any training whatsoever. You dont need to press buttons and the PFD doesnt really change to the 737 (just a bit bigger).
In fact, its 10 times easier to fly, as it is fly-by-wire. You only need to trim when there's a change in speed (when youll feel the force on the control column)
Hope that helped

You do the Medical in Doha as part of your training after you've joined the company.
You can apply for the housing allowance, however, it may take up to a year or more at the moment.
