The IR validity requirement is a QCAA requirement if you are DEC.

michaela74 3rd Dec 2016 18:32

So the IR validity doesn't count for first officers? I just got the green light for direct entry Airbus rated F/O. If I get a course date soon it's going to be very tight with regard to my IR expiry date. Can anyone in the know tell me how deep this pool is for Airbus rated F/Os and where can I expect to live with a wife and two kids.

I think they've shortened the required validity depending on your previous experience and fleet of joining.

That does not apply to flight deck. Flight deck obtain an annual exit permit, come and go as one likes.

Paper Lad 5th Dec 2016 13:22

My understanding is that an exit visa is still required under the new system. The method of applying is different and is aimed at those workers who are having difficulty getting their employer to grant one. The new system allows a worker to apply directly to the Ministry of something or other for the granting of exit permit and requires three days notice.

As previously stated, QR grants pilots a multi exit visa so the new system has little effect.

International saving plan vs End Of Service Benefits
Does anyone know which one is better to choose?

I think they contribute more into International saving plan than End of service benefits.

End Of Service Benefits or, International Saving Plan: employer pays 10% of basic monthly salary into the plan ?

I have an interview coming with Qatar Airways as DEC Boeing, can anybody tell me what to study for the 50 ATPL questions ? Will 'ace the technical pilot interview' book be enough to pass the test?

APU_inop 13th Dec 2016 13:52

Get LPJ and study the big databank. The "qr specific" is no longer up to date, a couple of hundred questions are available per subject. If you go through them all you should be fine.

Been in the pool for 1.5 years and now joining date in few months.

NTR captain 787.

Can anyone be so kind and share how the roster is on the 787. Ive been hearing lately that the offer is blocks of 6-4-3 days off. Although is not in the contact is that expected?

And also how long does the training last? In other words how long before getting the multi exit visa to go home during days off.

Just been reading an article online in The Gulf Times that the Qatar Govt are soon to implement a rule that expat workers over 60 will not get their contracts renewed. Some provisos maybe regarding which job & which nationality. Will this affect Qatar Airways pilots?

WrldWide 25th Dec 2016 19:34

Qatar Airways pilots dont have renewable contracts. Is considered permanent employment.
