QR Fast Track Command

A new was issued recently about fast track command in QR, which means that the company is looking for Captains due huge expansion in the company, but in the other hand the company created this Pilot Aptitude Test to make things not easy for those who have the minimum qualifications.


So What the F** is going on?

One has to keep in mind, this is fear mongering!!!! While this rumor may be true (although no evidence has been provided), QR is not a company that has intentions on terminating pilots without cause! Secondly, I can tell you, base on my own experience, adhere to QR's SOPs, you won't have a problem...PERIOD!

I'm baffled as to why people continue trying to stoke the fear in people who may have an interest in flying for QR. QR is a rapidly growing company that needs pilots! If you meet the qualification (not just flying experience), you will be hired. If you have an attitude that does not fit the culture of this airline, don't be surprise about the results. QR wants professional pilots!

As for the country, well it ain't DXB! But lets be real, are you coming to the middle east to grow roots and retire or make some money and re-patriot yourself back home?

Ghost Rider,

I knew a girl once who had the best looking t!ts in the world...so I married her.
That turned out to be a bad idea, as would be yours.

AV8or it's not fear mongering if it's true!!

Do you seriously claim that SEVEN captains got kicked for "SOP breaches" in one single week, and that's nothing for new joiners to be concerned about?

If it's true, then surely you must agree that QR has either got a very very serious problem with training and SOP adherence among its captains, or else it has a very very punitive culture that sacks people for the slightest and most minor of infringements.

Which is it do you think?

av8tordude..you are a genius.
Where do you want to go back to? Home?
Mate.. if geniuses like you keep going to work for slaver airlines like QR that in turns come to steal passenger to western carrier with the low fare they can offer just because of the total absence of social costs and taxes ( no pension, no union, no human rights, no nothing..) and because you haven't any frikking right down there in the frikking desert if not the right to frikking work and frikking shut your mouth..mate better you can get used to Doha and its fantastic weather.. because you will have no job to return to.

75% percent are failing the PAT, hence fast track.

Man PAT isn't a pass/fail test. It's just to get to know you better. Ask them (QR).

I recently heard the percentage of those failing PAT is closer to 85%...!!
And this includes the new joiners, internal upgrades, internal transitions and managerial movements.
No comment on who should pass or who should fail. Just a stat I heard.

Until you provide evidence to support your statement or you know all seven of the pilots who were terminated and they told you their subjected version of their termination story or you were in the office with them when they were terminated then...its FEAR MONGORING!!!!

So...were you one of the seven they terminated????

Again...Did you even take the time and actually read what I wrote????? I never claimed anyone was terminated for SOP breaches! Let me highlight it for you....

That being said, if your statement is true (Although no evidentiary support was provided), then it can only be concluded that SOP's was the problem. Unless, these pilots were a behavior problem.

Which is it do you think?
Since I have not flown with ALL the pilots to draw an unbiased opinion, I can not say there is a company-wide SOP adherence problem. What I can say, I've flown with many pilots who have been with the company 5, 7, 10 years. Although completely irrelevant, some of them are western pilots. But if a pilot can not comply with company SOPs, do think this pilot should retain his/her employment??? As for minor infringement, please give an example that would cause a pilot be terminated.
