Hello all !! Just a quick question. I heard that Qatar has an attrition rate of over 30 percent. Is there any truth to that and if so why ? Thanks guys !!!!

Nonsense as far as Flight Deck goes... we have letís say 4000 pilots give or take. 30% would be 1333 per year = over 100 per month. There are pilots of course leaving every month for the usual reasons but nowhere near that number.

Even including the cabin crew who I suspect have a higher attrition % than pilots the number just doesnít make sense. We have well over 10,000 cabin crew... the airline would cease to operate with that quantity of people leaving.

The numbers are far from accurate, but they are high. If you dig for the reasons you'll find it,but not here...

Tech questions in pilotjobsnetwork revision, do not resemble the questions we were asked. The 787 does not fly anything like a 73, look into it well beforehand.

Good luck everyone

Congrats. Welcome aboard Tonker!

Are you joining for the left or right hand seat.
And I assume you are a 737 to 787 transition is that correct.
Cheers

Boeing type rated FO

Hi there.

On my current Class 1 medical, I have 3 limitations.
OML, SSL and SIC.

The OML is because Iíve had an eye condition which I was grounded for while it lasted. And then I got the SIC which basically means, that I have to get regular checks in my eye, as it might return quite suddenly. After the checks, I must report to my AME and licensing authority.

Would you think, that Qatar would reject my application or would they accept these limitations, as they are just precautionary and just states that I have to undergo regular checks with a specialist?

Ciao Volare,

I suggest to have a look to LatestPilotJob to practice with those online tests, I found it very handy.

If you have the chance go to Dr Orton at Aviation Medica Stansted. He's authorized by the QCAA to conduct initial/renewal of class 1 medical. He'll be able to clarify all that for you.

So I might be able to get the QCAA Class 1 medical, but would Qatar Airways reject my application with them, as I have the limitations?

Hi guys, I was unsuccessful with Qatar the first time, and now that my 6 months has passed, I’m still unable to reapply. Tried mailing the cazar support team, but haven’t yet received a reply from them. I had earlier read in the forum that you might need to create a new mail I’d and then reapply. Any info on this will be highly appreciated. Cheers and happy landings.

tonker 5th Dec 2019 00:49

I had the same, and was advised by them to really using a different username and email. Basically start afresh.

Hi fellow aviators,

I would like to ask you a few questions regarding Qatar Airways position of the Type Rated Boeing First Officer which is currently open. I am from the USA and I hold a FAA ATPL and have a current and valid B737 type rating and its the aircraft which I am flying as well for my company. However, I fly both the Boeing 737 classic and the NG aircraft as my company operates the 737 fleet of 300series/400series/NG. My total time on the 737 itself is over 1000+ both classic and NG combined. I was reading the min requirements for the Type Rated Boeing First Officer states that you must be currently flying the NG series and/or EFIS version of the 737. The classics in our fleet are all EFIS screens, so before I apply, i want to make sure that since I am current and flying on both EFIS 737 classics and NG series, i am eligible to apply. Because in one of the previous posts on this forum i was reading that Qatar doesnt accept classic time unless its for the NTR position. So I dont want to apply and get a rejection and not be eligible for six months. My second question is, what is the latest interview prep gouge out there, I have been seeing latest pilot jobs.com but would appreciate any input on that. Please feel free to post here or pm me, I will certainly appreciate it. Best Regards and good luck to all that are applying .
