Friend of a friend that's been there just a little over three years on the A320 is going to 777 class this November but still in the right seat though. Another friend of another friend that's been there just under four years also A320 FO is in upgrade class on the A320. Looks like one wanted the PIC turbine while the other preferred widebody type but still as FO. To each their own.

Depends on requirement, possibly 2-3 years, but then expect another bond.

flying apple 26th Aug 2012 20:48

does anyone have a link to a website where you can see which fleet flies to where?
i found one when i was preparing for my interview but i cant find it anymore
it also had the destinations for the subtyp's (at least 320fam)

Excuse the thread drift chaps, but is anyone else flying out from the UK next Tuesday (4th) for selection?

Check Airman 27th Aug 2012 22:44

In addition to standard upgrade requirements, Widebody Command Upgrade requirements are:

a) 6500 hrs
b) 2000 hrs are flown on aircraft in excess of 100,000kg (A321 is about 93,000kg mtow)
c) 1000 hrs and 2 years experience on the fleet for which the command upgrade will take place
So an A320 CA would have to go back to being a WB FO before becoming a WB CA?

I won't be attending, but what position did you apply for?

Have QR started the training of A320 FOs into the 787 yet? Obviously the Boeing delays don't help with training schedules... :mad::}

Sept 10th
Anyone going on 10th Sept??

I heard that they have more than 300 pilots on the pool, how long will it take to clear this, and, are they hiring as much as before??

thank you

ArmApp, at the moment you'll do a CCQ the bond is 24 months at $30k, you'll pay 50% of it back for the first 12 months (equal deductions from salary) and then after the 24 months get all 100% of it back.
