nothing at the moment, they usually do it very last minute, maybe only one or two days notice. Maybe it serves as a sort of a test for potential candidates in a way ?

Maybe its difficult to coordinate a time with the Qatar reps.

When did you guys attend the preliminary interview?

I attended mine last week. I got called up for the preliminary interview very soon after the compass test, so I expected to be called for the next interview quickly as well (if I do get selected), but I haven't heard anything. Feeling quite worried at the moment.

I know that many applicants read PPRuNe, so it'll be great if we could all keep each other updated, since we might become classmates soon

Singapore, 18 June 2013 – Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (ST Engineering) today announced that the commercial pilot training business of its aerospace arm, ST Aerospace Academy (STAA), has been awarded a five-year Multi-crew Pilot Licence (MPL) training contract by Qatar Airways. As a one stop pilot training solutions provider, STAA will undertake the global recruitment and assessment of cadets on behalf of Qatar Airways, as well as customisation of training content for Qatar Airways’ operations. Cadets will undergo STAA’s MPL programme leading to the award of MPL from the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority, for eventual employment with Qatar Airways as Airbus A320 Type Rated First Officers.

The first batch of 36 cadet pilots is expected to commence training in the third quarter of 2013 and graduate in the first quarter of 2015. The subsequent intakes are expected to be similar or higher, depending on Qatar Airways’ operational requirements.

Just have to wait, don't think they will announce to the media and don't carry out the course.
I saw some cadets when attending the interviews, wonder if they will be joining the selections. What program are they on ? someone knows ?

Those are CPL cadets enrolled into the school

ground school will be similar for CPL and MPL, so if they make it past Qatar's interview, they will be converted into MPL cadets.

everyone has an equal chance

I won't be surprised if many of the applicants never attended SQ interviews before, given that the last SQ interview was held almost 2 years back.

Probably there won't be enough time between confirmation into the program and start date to give 1 month's notice to employer...
