Boeing Rated

Any chances of the Boeing rated assessments to resume in the near future ? Seems like all focus is on the A350 induction

Vast majority of the pool seems to be Boeing although quite a few Airbus guys also waiting.

The question is... When will the guys in the talent pool start getting assigned joining dates?

So you're all in the holding pool after passing the assessment and just waiting to start the type rating? Or you mean you're still waiting for an assessment after applying on the website?

QR assessment preparation

Hello all, I am preparing for QR assessment.Does any one know where can I find the best resources? I heard from few of my friends that ATPL questions from Latest pilot jobs are not anymore reliable, so is there any other websites where I can find the latest information?

QR rumors they are giving a 5 week bonus pay post Covid and World Cup......after withholding 15 weeks pay, voluntary of course or get fired, during the lockdown fraud. 10 weeks pay in the ether....Good times.

shall we add that for the THIRD year in a row, they are “withholding” the overtime?

it’s been almost 4 years since I left but previously involved with pilot recruitment.
yes normally it was one year limit but if was their fault or their delay, ie. they weren’t able to call earlier I’ve seen them extend it.

Some people have gotten a call to get updates on their currency.
Last flight. IR expiry. Notice period.

And this is after months of radio silence.

So either there’s some impending movement or it’s just them updating their databases.

I believe recruitment will speed up soon as there is a huge number of pilots heading to Riyadh, emirates or the US.
the more I fly, the more I meet people disappointed by the overall treatment received post covid/World Cup/1000h flown.
I see fireworks in the near future around here!

(Forgot to mention the pile of logbooks in the licensing office , labeled “fakes”… )
recruiting is becoming a very hard job

It’s not the outlfow of pilots that’s driving the recruitment or lack thereof.
I know guys who have joined end 2022 still in training.
There’s a severe backlog which has prompted a slowdown.
Nevertheless, hope your opinion is accurate.

It’s the outflow of pilots that drives the number recruited. The speed is regulated by training. Training is the bottleneck
