Hi guys... at least we can see that they are calling people slowly... some good news as well for our long wait..

By the way... In December a guy that works with me got an email from Qatar to update his experience with a form to fill.... Iīm in the pool as well but I never got the form or the email... could be because he is high in the list of people that they will call soon??

Regards to all

The 787 pilots who came from the 777 are being retrained on the 777, so until Boeing comes up with a fix I don't think many people going on the 777 will be getting a starting date.....

Job Offer

Hi guys,

For info and to give you an idea on the timeframe, a frined of mine who passed the selection in January 2012 as NTFO (He was captain with +6000 Hr) got a starting date for december 2013... no kidding, it's an absolute joke, about two years to get flying again... He refuses as he got a job with Emirates with only 2 weeks of waiting time... One less on the holding pool list. Hope this help to see where you are standing in the queue if still there.

A quick question. I did my interview in FEB 2013 incl sim but not the new aptitude bit. After the sim I have not heard from Qatar in any way shape or form. It's been nearly two months and don't know what their normal procedure is.

In the mean time I have just got another job in the Gulf as I can't risk losing that whilst waiting for Qatar as they may never come. Who knows...

You would be a fool to reject a job that has given you a start date.
Waiting for QR is bad enough, let alone knowing you waited for QR only to not be called/contacted or when you join find out that its not the job they portray in the "information sessions" and the interview.

Good or bad?

Today QR put a new recruitment event for rated FO (A320,330,340,B777).
Is it good or bad for all of us, non rated FO, waiting in the talent pool?

Etihad open but when you try to apply they ask for people with rating on B737, 747, 757, A310 and some others, so itīs not that open... however when you read the minimums in the careers web it doesnīt mention but if you try to apply the step 3 is that...

Too quiet, I wish we could have more info, but I know in the next months they are speeding up the training, and that has been said by the chief ground instructor to one of my best friends during a flight.

Anyway i see I still have to wait a bit more, but I have nothing better to do, so in my case i will wait.

Dash-8/300 hours


I have Dash-8/300 hours, which is 19500 KG MTOW (Not 20,000 KG). Not sure if that qualifies!

"Minimum of 1,000 hours in one of the following categories; Multi crew, multi engine jet aircraft, or command turbo-prop above 20,000 kg MTOW or high performance military jet (Multi Crew Co-operation certificate required)".

Is there any non type rated pilot with Dash-8/300 hours who applied and accepted.

Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

I know 2 guys that are flying the Dash 8 (F/O) that did the interview for FTSO past september, and they have flown the -300 lately but before they used to fly the small one in the bush.

They both failed in the personal interview, they didnīt even make it to the simulator, but they were called and they did the process, so I think this answer your question.

No unfortunately it didn't.

Because I was referring to FO position not FTSO.

Thanks for the response, anyway.
