Hi Guys, does anyone know how long people are waiting for a ground school after being in the holding pool? For the Airbus fleet.

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.

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
Belated thanks on the sweat box feedback Taviator, I’m sure it would have helped immensely had ‘Sods Law’ not thrown a curveball last minute!

So there I was at the Sim centre in DOH, fully prepped post research on all things Dreamliner via YouTube’s, SIM enthusiast forums, Avgeek apps and what have you, when BOOM! Sim schedule change (went tech I think) last minute & they end up putting us (3 RHS NTR guys) on the Triple & guess who went first?! *Gulp*


As for the Sim profile it was pretty straightforward:
  • Manual Take off (No FDs but A/T on) follow SID off RWY 16R
  • Outbound on climb out, ding from the cabin, passenger heart attack scenario!
  • So with the decision making mouth music part over and done with, we returned to DOH, on vectors (I got given some really tight intercept vectors) for the ILS 16R, both AP failed= Raw Data ILS (honestly I found this bit the hardest, it is,Ly over controlling as I couldn’t gauge the FBW trim ops, so I held the force on the column & just stubbornly danced my way down on the LOC/GS keeping them within limits praying for the sight of PAPIS. Finally broke cloud at minimums (CAT1 preset Wx) landed...a little firmly mind, ahem (do not use the 737 FCTM landing technique, flare earlier)
  • Reposition - EFATO (much easier then the 737, no rudder trim required once airborne ). Flew a decent V1 cut profile, accelerated & levelled off & then flight freeze.
  • Reposition - 12NM intercept for a S/E ILS, this time with FD available & A/T (hallelujah), all the way to minimums for SE G/A.
The End.....I was personally ushered & evacuated back to the main reception area with the quickness where my transport back,to the hotel awaited me.

Overall core competencies assessed were - Problem solving, Decision making, Workload management, Communication & finally Flight path management - Manual handling skills. One thing I’ll say is in sim, make sure you make full use out of the other guy in a PM roles, use your companies SOPs, checklist flows, application of procedures during the whole ordeal & involve the other guy throughout when needed, if you don’t speak,ask,say,request anything, then expect the other guy to remain mute as a mannequin!

Thankfully, the verdict I received at the end of October was of a positive note *phew* , Swimming for now awaiting fleet allocation & DOJ details etc, does anyone have any idea of how many lengths in the pool before you get paperwork formalities via email etc?


p.s: I think out of the 6 (including me) chaps that were at the SIM stage, only 2 got the ‘ yay you made it’ email. So yea, good luck guys and girls, make sure you prep well, especially if you make it all the way to the Stimulator stage!
