Does anybody know what are some A320 destinations, or where the A320 destinations can be found?

A21 9th Sep 2011 09:45

Well I got a position as FO and I am not rated (DC-9 rider).
Any one got some info about the routes with A300.

QR Assessment Experience
Previous posts are pretty spot on: Interviewed August 2011, First Officer

Business Class to Doha, everyone on staff I encountered was extremely gracious, courteous and nice. These attributes were perpetuated by the hiring managers and pilots that conducted the assessment in Doha.

Day One:

8 am refreshments and coffee served as the 10 of us waited near the conference room to begin.

Logbooks, medicals and documents taken for review.

Short introduction to Qatar Airways by one of the airline's Airbus Captains. Informational session that includes description of compensation package, accommodations, medical benefits, transportation allowance, and other similar details.

3 Phases for the assessment

Phase 1
Written test:
50 questions JAA/FAA ATPL questions, most gouges you come across are spot on regarding these questions. Study them along with the ATPL test bank and you'll be fine. .

Phase 2:
Panel Interview:
2 pilots, and an HR professional, this was the most relaxed of any phase. GIVE SPECIFIC EXAMPLES when asked about certain experiences while flying for your company. The capitalization in the previous sentence should suffice as to how you should approach the questions posed to you.

Phase 3:
Simulator Assessment

You will be sent the profile prior to traveling for the interview. Image or chair fly and learn the pitch and power settings (important to have at least a ballpark target). I had no prior Airbus experience, I studied the profile and listened to the evaluator about how to decipher information on PFD. The airbus side yoke is particularly sensitive, just try to stay calm and rely on basic skills to help you. That was it. Also try to rest up as much as you can during your break between panel and sim. You may have to enter the sim pretty late and fatigue is the enemy of a decent sim ride, specifically if you don't have Airbus time.

No word yet, hopefully the hiring managers are planning classes and are waiting to assign aircraft before they send a decision.

pm me for more details.
