It's blatantly obvious some people can't be bothered to read this thread prior to asking questions that have been answered many times before.

Guys and girls, if you are serious about this application then take the time to make yourself a coffee, sit down somewhere comfortable and READ THIS THREAD FROM THE START.

It doesn't take that long and many of the posts can be skipped over as they just ask stupid questions ...

Come on guys ... it's not hard.

They will get back to you in exactly 12 days. You will have your interview on the 14th day then you'll be in the back of a 747 after about 17 days.

nmcpilot don't you mean in front of a 747 lol... guys best thing to do is read the thread you will get the answers to all your questions!

Expect to wait at least 6 months before you hear back unless you are willing to travel to HK on your own account.

Anyone on here going to stage 2 in the next few weeks?

nmcpilot I found some similar maths stuff drop me your email and ill send it over.

Try to wait for a week. =)

Well, those mails are sent to a common mail and it depends whoever views your mail you see.
Yea, I can say they are friendly but the response that you might get will probably sounds generic to you.

Guys, I was wondering, is the book "Ace the Technical Pilot Question" necessary for stage 1? I mean, I've been reading books after books just to get prepared. Just wondering, is it necessary?

re: midnightsky

can't give you a definitive answer as you know they may throw anything at you.

however stage 1 tends to be quite simple. but that said, if you have time, why not just read it, you'll need it later anyway. beware of some bad answers from the book though (can't remember which but this view is echoed)

re: herrtob

Yea, thought the same way too.
I don't want to underestimate those questions in round 1 but I want to be well prepared as well...
I saw that book in a bookshop today and gosh, it's quite expensive...
I might buy the book, not for the interview but to look around at those type of questions. =)

it is gd to look through the book. i dont think you will be asked those specific questions tho if u have 0 flying hrs. but im sure it will help u to understand the concepts better. i went through the book, but i think i can only remember maybe 10% after reading? haha. its a gd book on top of JKT book. =)

for zero hours applicants like myself i would recommend the 17chapters of FAA's "technical knowledge for pilots" in between JKI and ACE. it's available at FAA website. found it very comprehensive in establishing a baseline

re: dagger19 & herrtob

dagger19:
LOL, I browsed through the book in the bookstore just now and I only managed to understand to front part of the book only. Hahaha... Bummer =.=

herrtob:
I've read that booklet too. Seems to be pretty straight forward.
Oops, wait, the one I've got is Pilot's Handbook for Aeronautical Knowledge.
I'm guessing that's the one right?
Did you do your Stage 1 already?
You did right??

Hi guys,

Regarding the technical pilot books, I would like to know the best suitable for me to pass an interview (Part 1) with a company such as Qatar Airways.
I have checked online and found different type of books. Would appreciate your help guys .... Thanx

firstly, we don't know you. we don't know your hours, your ratings, no nothing.

secondly this is cx cpp thread, and i personally don't know qatar, don't know if you're applying for cadet (if there's even one) or direct entry for whatever position.

so how do you suppose we are to answer your question?

but in general, read everything? ACE/FBJ/HBJ stuff like that
