I would like to ask you a few questions regarding Qatar Airways position of the Type Rated Boeing First Officer which is currently open. I am from the USA and I hold a FAA ATPL and have a current and valid B737 type rating and its the aircraft which I am flying as well for my company. However, I fly both the Boeing 737 classic and the NG aircraft as my company operates the 737 fleet of 300series/400series/NG. My total time on the 737 itself is over 1000+ both classic and NG combined. I was reading the min requirements for the Type Rated Boeing First Officer states that you must be currently flying the NG series and/or EFIS version of the 737. The classics in our fleet are all EFIS screens, so before I apply, i want to make sure that since I am current and flying on both EFIS 737 classics and NG series, i am eligible to apply. Because in one of the previous posts on this forum i was reading that Qatar doesnt accept classic time unless its for the NTR position. So I dont want to apply and get a rejection and not be eligible for six months. My second question is, what is the latest interview prep gouge out there, I have been seeing latest pilot jobs.com but would appreciate any input on that. Please feel free to post here or pm me, I will certainly appreciate it. Best Regards and good luck to all that are applying .
I am also in the US, I would apply if I was you, Qatar and Emirates are looking if you are interested in wide body, also Flydubai would be an option for you.
you work for your money but you are compensated pretty good, the 2 big ones give you accommodation as you already know.
Looks you I am on the same boat you are... Unless you belong to the Luck sperm club to e picked by a legacy here in the US, in my opinion you are better off overseas and you can save some money if you play the cards right.

I believe we are. I have put my dues in with the regionals here in the US, and im just done and dusted with the hiring system here. I mean I am not saying hire me as everyone is qualified in their own capacity, but some of the people getting hired in the US majors, dont even deserve to be in a cockpit. And yet the ones that do, are waiting for years. Thats why I have shifted my focus to the Gulf carriers and yes your right, saving money and building for the future is the way to go and that can happen only in the overseas expat route.

I am current B737 UBer driver. I am applied to Qatar. I got a reply they want you as long you are current. They are looking for. Non typed and typed on b777 and b787 only. Typed on the b737 is not typed. You be under Non typed.

Don't worry just apply its free, put in your documents, let the recruitment ladies do there job. If you fit the requirements you be selected for interview. If you fail you can apply again in 6mths. You will always get a reply if you qualify or not.
​​​​Because there is a BIG LIST of toys of B787 and B777 on order,

Its a good package for single and married people. Schooling, house, pension etc included.

hardest is the interview tech quizz. Its not FAA questions. More of. EASA type. Start with latest pilot job website where you can purchase a package of the interview gouge.

There is interview in Miami. But I heard they stop interview until next March.

or there Emirates. There a lot spaces because pilotsare leaving Emirates and fly Dubai due to the intense roster.
just apply better than Swift..

Hi colleagues,

currently, Im an FO with Lufthansa, A320. As command upgrade will be far away, lets say 12-15 years due to seniority, Im considering QR. Heard good and bad about it. Im wondering how long it takes right now for upgrade - still 4/5 years? Any impact due to the blockade in the gulf? How about your wife - is it easy for her to work or will she be bored very soon in the sandpit?

thanks for your replies

QR does not offer any form of pension, only end of service. Pension obligations are all on you.

Piece of unsolicited advice incoming: I wouldn't leave a long term career in a flag carrier like DLH for any ME carrier. If you told me you are Ryanair or some other toxic psuedo-airline then it'd be the completely opposite story. Aside from that: command is really overrated, if that's your main reason.

Wouldn't worry too much, I applied back in August and heard nothing for months only back in November did things start moving.
