@Liberace, according to their website and other info, 2000 PIC on aircraft over 100T is required...thats the minimum, the reality is anyone's guess...

Hi all,

I have been invited for screening at the end of May.

I have a scheduling conflict with my current company and am desperately trying to get hold of Qatar HR to try and re-schedule my interview. Usual story though - no response to email and the phones just ring and ring.

What is the best time from your experience to try and call them?

Oh, happy Day
Guys, aft 4 months i received my " pass" email.
Applied for FO!
Am very happy and wanted this to share with my fellow candidates still waiting.
Be strong, it will come!

BRILLIANT MAN... BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!! i can imagine how happy you must be now..... WELL DONEEEEEE :ok::ok::ok::ok::ok:
a long wait--- but worth it....

dirk85 29th Apr 2012 12:39

I understand it's a stupid question, but I ask anyway... :}

I barely have the minimum for FTSO, 1100 TT, 700 multipilot jet time, (10 tonnes).

My current job is quickly going to s**t and I expect to be unemployed pretty soon.

Does everyone that meets the requirements get a shot at the interview, or still they can afford to be picky and only call a percentage of the applicants?

I am afraid I already know tha answer, but still... :(

Congratulations to all who have been offered a position with QR recently.

I am thinking about applying, but would ideally like a 777/330 FO position. I am already flying a narrow body jet and would rather fly something bigger if I choose to leave the company I am with at the moment (would have to be for the right offer)

Are QR still chopping and changing their rating offers or have they stuck to their original offers of late?

I have heard stories of people being offered 777/330 but then given a 320 rating on arrival.

Regards, Flyer

Whats your total time on narrow body? Airbus or Boeing?

flyer19832007 29th Apr 2012 14:25


Neither type buddy, but a modern jet none the less over 30T. 2500hrs total 500 jet. I have no intention of applying until I have 1000 jet anyhow (to fulfill FO requirements)

So basically will be 3000hrs TT 1000 Jet before I even apply.


flyforfood1 29th Apr 2012 15:09

Without putting a downer on it, you'd prob get 320. It seems the current flavour is wide body time or over 3500 jet time total to get a chance at wide body in QR, the 330 is a pretty stagnant fleet, not much (if any) projected growth, although there maybe a few transfers here and there.

Note. This could change at any time though and I stand corrected if its not the case.

flyer19832007 29th Apr 2012 15:23

Yeh figured as much, will probs just throw in an application and see what happens
Having read other threads, by the time I hear back if im successful ill be knocking on the EK requirements door!

Be interested to see how the arrivals of the 787s effects fleet allocation (most likely onto other wb). Might get lucky! Stranger things have happened!

You can and should apply for Fast Track Second Officer


dirk85 29th Apr 2012 16:09

I did!

Just trying to figure out if I stand a chance to be called or not.

Does everyone with the requirements get the invitation?

Black Pudding 29th Apr 2012 16:13

Yes you do

Is your application still in the system. Did you upload a passport photo ?

Stick35 29th Apr 2012 16:20

Hi dirk85

I do meet the requirements but i did not get an invitation. Almost 5 months ago i applied. Don't know how they select people.

dirk85 29th Apr 2012 16:39

@Black Pudding

Yes, in the passport copy I was asked to upload there was also a picture. I will keep the application up to date on a weekly basis with the hours flown, you never know...
