Buddy, you are going to need a much thicker skin, and a lot more patience, if you want any hope of surviving this place.

The mate is expecting common sense from that place , don't spoil his fairy tale thoughts....

No, if you are Boeing rated and current you will join on Boeing and remain there for the duration of your stay in QR. If you have previous Airbus experience but are more current on Boeing, there is no harm in asking for Airbus but chances would be slim.

On the training side we don't see as many DEC now as in the past. Internal Command upgrades are around 15/month. DEFO to Command running at three years if you have the hours.

Have they implemented the new FDTL? If yes how is it?
​​​​​​I'm interested to know about 777 rosters.

Thanks

More days off after LH flights. I think some destinations becoming three pilots instead of four, but I don't fly 777 myself.

ULRs (no changes on city pairs) are still 4 pilot. East coast and Montreal are apparently 3 unless itís a training flight (4 pilots).

Seen some of my mates (P1) rosters on 350 and 777. They are very happy with their rosters. Canít speak for FOs.

Stay away from QR, they are investing money in china and EU but they underpay their pilots ... as FO at regional you make more money than in QR! And that's a fact!

Please tell me at which regional airline an FO makes 8-10k usd take home a month with housing paid.
Why would investments in Europe and China be a reason for staying away from an airline?

What did I just read? I have to go out and take a walk to process this.

I don't know in EU but in US an FO in regional is getting 115-120K$/y (bonuses etc) to fly 75h/m not 110h/m ... do your math, and you must be in company accommodation. And in addition to that you are in the Doha (not Dubai/AbuDhabi nor Bahrain) ... your family can be really miserable in the corner of the desert.

APU_inop 10th Jan 2019 15:30

Can you give a couple of examples of regional companies paying these amounts? I can't find them but I would like to apply

Actually an FO only has to fly about 60 hours to make those numbers in year 1.

go to airline pilot central ... regionals ... and check the best one for you ... but get out of the sandpit (especially quatar) if you are only there for the money ... there are better options at home!

Banana Joe 10th Jan 2019 21:52

I still don't have the requirements to apply but was wondering if the 500 hours on 737NG requirement is a hard requirement? I am rated and qualified to fly both the Classic and NG but I only fly the Classic for now.

My colleague had stated that FOs made $8-10K per month net (more if you consider ISP contribution) to which the next poster alluded to having to fly 110 hours a month to make. The reality is that an FO only needs to fly 50 hours to get an $8K paychek .FACT.

Keep that up for a year and include allowances and you have NETTED 100K on 50hrs a month avg. (600 for the year). With free accommodation, medical and a reasonable education allowance.

OW

PS. AFAIK FOs at Regionals make upto $60K year 1 in the US. That is pretty much industry standard. Take out state and federal and your 401K contributions and you have $4K a month. Maybe even less (depends on the state). Thatís Less than half of what an FO takes home here.
