Why are some people in the pool waiting for DOJ have to do the ADAPT and other in the pool are getting DOJ without ADAPT??

RK303 28th Aug 2013 17:01


I was wondering what’s new here and I’ve read previous recent posts regarding the famous PAT.
I always though that those horrible brain test were used by airlines to filter ab-initio and get a reason to select a wanabe vs another one,trying to find some kind of natural skills or something…
So just for curiosity, why those test are use on experienced pilots already flying? Should a professionnal pilot having a full time flying job remain sharp on a PAT at any time??

Hi All,

Any news about Second officer's recruitment ? The latest News is that no recruitment till end of 2014..

Means, September update with say "Dear Candidate, Please wait till the next update in December.......etc)

Very Sad, some ppl been waiting for more than 2 years... its killing.

"Hi folks,
can anyone tell me info about the medical in QR? I mean, Is allowed a slight color blindness? I know China is a country that doesn't allow any kind of color blind but not sure about QR. Apreciate if one can shed me some light about the medical sight test"

I wouldn't expect to get a job with them if you have even a slight headache.

I, in the past, had a rare but treatable form of Leukaemia (Blood Cancer). I am in total and complete remission. Have been for 5 years, which is in reality the "all clear" stage.

I was asked to provide comprehensive doctor letters, which I did. These letters go into my disease in some depth and are from the world experts. They say I should have a normal life expectancy.

Within 24 hours, a depersonalised generic email says no. Even though I was involved in a personal email process with the charming Brazilian lady.

I'm a type rated, current captain with well in excess of 3,000 on type and multiple other types flown as well.

The woman from recruitment made me feel pretty bad about myself, but of course they won't discuss anything with you. They are above that - or perhaps they realise they are so thick that you'd wipe the floor with their argument.

Anyway, it is their train set and they can keep it.

Good luck, but expect rejection.

They are not looking for reasons to hire you.

They are looking for reasons NOT to hire you,
and you gave them one.

What else needs to be said.

Narrow Runway 2nd Sep 2013 14:50


What reason did I give them "not to hire me"?

Your answer is as discriminatory as is theirs. Even if you didn't mean it to be.

I understand it is their choice and it clearly remains so, but be careful how you sound, lest one day you befall something like this.

It isn't a nice feeling.

It's because fully trained robots only know how to say yes or no and not to have an opinion.

That's why the capitalists are trying to automate everything these days.

But to be honest people around these parts don't know anything about courtesy. Most of the people in the GCC are from the 3rd world and life in these parts is basically like living in a Jungle. You just put your head down and try to get to the top, nothing here to do but to make and spend money. Quite sad. Hopefully we'll see better days

hawk99 3rd Sep 2013 16:32

@ vinouche33 , there are few from bahrain air whom I know personally , they ARE joining this year. Maybe they didnt take you along And maybe they knew some bahraini finance guy who is qatar CEO's buddy , any bells rringing ? Best of luck. And ethopia yes today I spoke to senior guy and he said that those who have not received joining by the time update mail is generated, they all will receive the delay mail. According to him joinings for FOs have been dished out already. Best of luck to all of us.
