Hi all, like a few people here I'm wondering if anyone has any recent knowledge of the ATPL Tech exam questions? Again it would be greatly appreciated for any information available.

Hello everyone,
Regarding the ATPL questions. I took the ATPL test, group exercise, panel discussion and interview at a road show in europe recently.
I found that using the Qatar Airways ATPL question bank on LatestPilotJobs, and really studying it made this test fairly easy. pretty sure i scored near 100%

During the group exercise, i really just tried to work with the others without being too overbearing. I can be really determined and want to take charge so this was very hard for me
The panel discussion throws up topics for you to answer. You are meant to give your best answer, then discuss with group, then finally tell them if you want to change your answer based on new information.

Finally the interview topics are covered pretty well on LatestPilotJobs.
Take this seriously, use a few days to study and formulate honest answers to the "HR-style" questions like strengths/weaknesses etc. and you will do fine
Best of luck!

I paid for interview coaching from pinstripe solutions. Spent an hour on Skype with a specialist. The questions were not exactly the same, but the answers I prepared for the Pinstripe questions were relevant in the interview. They also helped me present myself well and avoid common mistakes that I have made at other interviews. https://www.pinstripesolutions.com/
(I passed the interview process in November, and was offered a class date in April.)

Does anyone know if they ask you technical questions before the simulator assessment?

If you mean right before the sim, no. But during the personal interview, yes they do.

Sudden increase of available DECs may have an impact.

I was patiently waiting for a joining date since I was placed in the talent pool 11 months ago, but unfortunately yesterday, got this email from QR:

After careful review to the holding pool and the number of projected joining slots, we regret to inform you that we will not be able to offer you a date within the validity of your application.

Has anyone received a similar reply before?

Anyone thinking of joining, beware.
Terms and conditions frequently change with no discussion and never for the better.
They fly to places and in airspace that most airlines avoid!
They fire people routinely for things that in other airlines might merit a debrief or a sim session.

Think carefully before joining!

Pilots are a fungible resource.

Yes, It’s a real eye opener to work without union protection or even the legal rights afforded to most employees in many countries. it was certainly an eye opener for me.

But yes, my friend, that’s how it is,

Before taking ANY contract job it is very important to read all of the fine print, and assume nothing.

If job security is what you are after, “ex-pat pilot” is probably not the right tree to be barking up. , ... But if in spite of your better judgment You still want the thrill of running with the big dogs... (or just need the job), well then, you have to keep up, keep your head down, keep your mouth shut, make friends and allies, don’t step on the other dogs’ paws, and really, just run as hard as you can, for as long as you can...

Believe me. there are plenty of other dogs waiting to join the pack

and we are very replaceable.

Hello all,

Recently submitted an application around mid January with nothing but the standard auto-reply saying the application is being processed. Anyone else in a similar situation?

Did you perform the initial computer based tests? Or have you not received those yet?
In either case it may be to raise a query on the web portal
