How to keep QATAR ATPL Valid

Hi ,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to keep Qatar ATPL Valid so we can apply for jobs once the situation is over maybe in three years

I have an A350 type rating, Do I have to come back to Qatar every year to do my medical?

Thanks

The Indian community works pretty well i never had any issues (personal experience ) The problem is that most of the managers are all BABY Qatari captains. As I said, they are busy with silly things like catching WhatsApp groups and yes.... they don't fly

Lease termination:

I found out in my lease agreement it mentioned I have to give them one-month prior notice and there will be a penalty of one month? Is this true?

"With reference to Clause no. 3 of current contract, shall the tenant be obliged to terminate the lease contract before its expiry date, due to the reason of leaving finally the State of Qatar, there should be One month prior notice and payment of penalty equal to the rent of One month except in case the tenant arranges a replacement as per Landlord terms and conditions. In either case, the remaining post-dated cheques will be returned to the Tenant upon the termination of the lease contract based on presentation of cancelled QID or submission of replacement cheques and handover of the premises in good condition."

The QCAA ATPL is one of the least recognized ATPLs in the world and unfortunately considered amongst the least safest ( whatever that means ).
I was told this by a very popular recruitment agency who refused to accept it on grounds of its extremely low ‘safety quotient‘
🙄

Does anyone know given the current situation whether a Qatari license would be accepted in UAE/Bahrain/Saudi?

Finally QR is belatedly implementing a 'No PCR Test - No Fly' policy. Certainly better late than never, but after such wanton profiteering, this will not bring solace to those who were infected (or their grieving relatives as a direct result of unfettered QR travel). And the answer is yes, I do have family and friends affected.

Being a member of any QR related whatsapp group is THE criterion.

I'm surprised they're making A350 and B787 pilots redundant, I thought those ratings would be keepers.

Planeur. It was not an argument. It was a statement.

Ok I will bite. You wrote this drivel " .....dumping many tens of thousands....." ".....this as other airlines cut back....".

Your intention is to give the picture of Qatar Airways sucking up the worlds Covid infected people and forcing (as you say " dumping) them on various cities throughout out the world.

Most of those " infected passengers" were infact your fellow citizens who had been stranded by their booked ailines shutting down operations leaving them abandoned on the other side of the world. I am sure these rescued passengers would appreciate your comments of them being "dumped" into your precious Blighty and going forth to infect their fellow citizens. Many airlines did these rescue flights. But your silence on them is loud and speaks volume on your intent. Which gives rise to the thought that you probably have an axe to grind against QR. You a QR applicant failure, perhaps?

And oh - not for one second do I believe that had it been you and your loved ones taking a holiday in the Far East or Austrslia, and the prospect of being stranded in that country- you would have been active to tell everyone to stay put and see the pandemic out in the foreign country! No - you would have gladly been one of the " infected or about to be infected" people to be flown back to Blighty and been "dumped" on British soil!

I guess you're missing some numbers, I had someone check the rosters in the Company iPad and more than 500 pilots are not there anymore, last weeks they did three more rounds of elimination of about 160 pilots.
