I think we can all agree that as pilots we all have a basic level of understanding. My post is simply giving people the heads up as to the level of detail needed to pass the exam. It has nothing to do with my personal level of knowledge.

If you wish to study the entire EASA question bank, you will simply waste valuable time and effort. If, however, you study the Qatar question bank, many of these questions appear in your exam (depending on which exam you are given).

Any questions that appear that were not in the Qatar question bank, were of a similar nature and level of complexity. I personally had 50% from the question bank, the rest I had never seen before. However, they were of a basic nature.

Take it how you will. Just sharing my experience and good luck.

Don't worry Silver, I understood what you were trying to say and I agree with you. After all, isn't the ATPL test exactly meant for this purpose? No basics is no job. If one's basics is greater dan some other's basics, well, then he or she has more chance for the job then the other has. Thus, selection may be accomplished.

Bond payback
 
Hi folks. I was wondering if Qatar paid any of you guys' previous company bonds?
:rolleyes:

tonker 3rd May 2017 08:41

When I applied for Type rated captain, my 737NG hours counted. I see they've now been deleted for all those in the same position.

I still have an FO application in and that's still "under review", a month later. When do most people hear from QR?

Sjef van Oekel 3rd May 2017 14:25

Requirements for the DEC Type rated Boeing changed. 737NG hours were accepted, this has been removed now, as you can see on their careers website.

tonker 3rd May 2017 15:18

Hence why the Captains application says screened and can't be withdrawn I guess. Ho hum, FO it is then.

I know it's a piece of string, but roughly how long under review to phone call?

AFAIK, you must have no pending training bonds from former employees when joining QR. They even ask for proper documentation (release letter).

787 Ground School and Simulator Training
 
Brief question: Where are the initial training and simulator sessions taking place (787)? Doha or abroad? Thanks.

B737SFP 4th May 2017 04:39

The last friend of mine who went to the 787 did his inital training in Singapore... To tell the truth, I think all them went to Singapore at first(787 fleet). There's an Alteon Training Center there !

What I heard is that the inital training abroad is much more relaxed than the one "in the house".

Avenger 4th May 2017 10:52

Yes not accepting NG hours now for DEC, if you are in the training system you "maybe" ok, if you have a DJO as a Captain, based on NG hours but didn't start the training probably change to FO. No outstanding bonds accepted. 787 training in Singapore.

Papa_Golf 4th May 2017 11:28

For Boeing training you have many options:

1) In house in Doha, STAR course mostly.

2) Gatwick or Singapore, Full Course with Boeing instructors then QR OCC back in Doha.

3) Same as above, but short course with QR instructors.

Regarding DEC coming from NG, for as much as I know they just closed the application. If you have passed the assessment you should be ok on the 787.

Silver68 is correct, latestpilotjobs site says 737NG
Avenger is correct, Qatar website doesn't include the 738NG

I would guess Latestpilotjobs is using a old advert

Silver68 4th May 2017 15:12

Avenger, as I said in my first post, the advert was on todays latestpilotjobs website. I'm aware of the what the Qatar recruitment page says.

JButler 6th May 2017 15:22

A few people I know recently did the QR selection and used The AirlinePrep App from AirlinePrep's website. They said it was very comprehensive with all the feedback questions.

Since all of you guys have been to the presentation, could you give me a few info :

- What is the updated entry salary for TR A320 FO ?
- What is the internal policy regarding the upgrade or fleet change (A320 to wide body)?

Thanks and good luck to all of you ;-)

Hi guys,

I'm just reposting my old post which hasn't been answered.

Any kind soul around to share the entry salary breakdown for an A320 FO ?
I haven't been invited yet in Doha so I don't know what they offer.

Thx ;-)
