I believe that you may reapply after 6 months.

From what I heard theres really nothing to do over there and people are all wanting to return home after getting experience. Some even broke their bond on the MPL program to go home.. Must be pretty bad over there despite Qr being the best airline in the world.

Life in Dohaís what you make of it... in fact iíd say life in the Middle East is what you make of it.

For sure itís no Dubai or Bahrain but you need to focus on whatís important for you. Iím single and am by no means Ďslashing my wristsí by being there/here - 90% of the trips are layovers (some with Days Off downroute) and then I bid for blocks of days Off and either go home or travel - iíve probably spent a maximum of 10days in the country each month since iíve been here. People with families or who are coming from countries at a distance (Australia, South America etc)... are tending to spend more days in the country... so itís more essential to make it work.

I think most people these days are tending to make their decisions as a Ďpackageí - not just the country but the job also (how it compares to Emirates etc).

Regarding MPLs, of the pilots I know itís the opposite... for sure, they have the same complaints/concerns/challenges... but the reality of earning a lot more money tax free compared to say the UK (21-23years old in some cases earning $10k+ p/m) plus flying say an A350 after 2-3years in flight school, maybe command in the near future... have influenced them.

Itís all big picture. In addition as there are plenty of jobs at the moment... people can pick and choose and be more fussy...

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the situation in QR? I'm a hopeful cadet waiting to start my training but QR had recently put all of us on hold for unforseeable future.

Much thanks in advance!

FlyingOW 11th Aug 2018 09:26

Depends on what YOU like to do, what your pursuits, hobbies are etc. Also depends on if youíre single or married. At the end of the day itís how you choose to spend your time and getting out there that matters.

I have found there is plenty to keep one busy.

Regarding the MPL, from what i gathered theres no guarantee you'll be on A350. It depends on demand and there are also people who are still on the A320.

And one more thing, how do y'all do the walk around of the aircraft for pre checks in 40-50 degrees celsius?! Thats pretty intense...

Youre exactly the kind of person we don't want here. A negative immature person who would not be happy flying a 320.

Much of a life ? Some love it here and have no intentions of leaving soon.

Living conditions ? Not much to do ? Really

Do us us a favour and don't bother applying here as I and many others don't want to be with or work with negative people.

Thank for coming here, can tell here to everybody interested, how is life there, what you like/dislike most, how is being there as a single person with no kids... I m very motivated with the idea and thinking to apply or not. If you want Pm me I would be very thankful.

Can I apply to QR and How?

Thanks!

Tima84 16th Aug 2018 17:03

Hello guys, quick question.

I am an A320 Captain with 1500 PIC and 5500 total flight hours.
I would like to apply for a DEC position, once I reach the minimums, at the moment I need another 500 hours total time.
Is there a reason to apply at the moment given the blockade situation?

Thank you.

At the moment we don't need anymore 777 FOs and most newbies seem to come to 787 fleet. They are working on the roster patterns, effectively they don't want to give more than 4 block days off and twigged that they don't need to joint blocks from one month to another to give extended off days. As they constantly repeat at the roadshows, commute just worked out as a matter of luck but he contract is not advertised as commuting and as such new joiners should go in with their eyes wide open on this issue. Seems someone in the bean counting dept has been told to optimise company accommodation and crew planning are looking at more productive rosters. Net result, don't expect to opt out of company accommodation within a year and expect back to backs on the 787 with less recovery in-between. Apparently no 787 flights require more than 18 hours rest! my ass comes to mind! Did an Emirates crew planner join?

Any update for Boeing DEC ???

Manpower shortage in QR
 
Hi guys I'd like to check if anyone knows how severe is the lack of instructors QR is facing at this moment having to put on hold any form of recruitment for pilots and what is the outlook of this situation in the near future? Thanks a lot.

Avenger 19th Aug 2018 22:21

The shortage is simulators not instructors, hens teeth springs to mind

No change to the status quo, donít expect a call until next FY.

Current Boeing Command requirements are being fulfilled by FOs

OW

PS. Things may change if they lift the blockade.

Papa_Golf 20th Aug 2018 15:44

@Glider7

It must be a pleasure flying with you.

By the way, there's a huge need of FOs at the moment. Since they introduced the IRP it's been nightmare rosters.
