I just went through the process and thought took a while to finally get to the actual interview it was a good experience in the end. I found that some of my research ended up being inaccurate. I spoke with friends that are there and they have recently had some management changes and the processes are not what I was told. I was told that the process was very easy and anyone can get through - NOT the case. Here are some pointers and some notes from my experience.
Hong Kong Airlines is growing and working at creating a strong image and the interview process shows it. The whole atmosphere is relatively relaxed but don't bother showing up unless you are dressed for the interview. It is not a Levi's affair! I heard one pilot was discounted because of a less than sterling appearance. Want the job? - sell yourself.
The interview itself was open and friendly, but professional. They discussed my background and experience (as it is :rolleyes:) and a couple of 'technical' questions. Beyond that it was typical interview scenarios - "why should we hire you?"
Was sent for a medical exam - typical Class I type, an English language 'test', a written technical test and the simulator ride. The sim ride was straightforward and close to what they sent me for a sequence. I was told that they are not looking for perfection but a high level of airmanship and handling especially if not 320 rated. I just got my A320 recently so it was not a new experience. I was in the seat for maybe 30 minutes or so.
For those that like to crunch percentages - On the day I interviewed there were 10 of us and 6 were allowed to go beyond the interview and to the simulator etc. - the others were sent home. I don't know what the results ended up being for the 6 of us that finished the entire process.

Mine was 4 - 5 months, but some others were shorter it seemed. I don't know about the 330, though they indicated they were recruiting for 330 positions. I interviewed for the 320 FO.
23rd Jan 2012, 09:56
Do you guys know if that (4-5 months) is standard waiting time for them to get back? I'm 320 rated and current TRI.
I sent cv/cover letter to their recruitment email address, should I try to follow up with phone call or just wait and see? I did not get any reply back from them on my cv.
23rd Jan 2012, 23:50
HKA and HKE advertised that they are hiring Capts and FO's into all fleets!
I applied and was sent an application to complete which I already sent it back. They told me to contact them after 21 days if I didn't hear anything. Is this normal and should I follow up with a phone call or simply an email?:rolleyes:
Does anyone have more info on the recruitment, selection process and how many pilots they plan on hiring?

Greetings New Wings.
I have my interview with Hong Kong Airlines in March. Could you please tell me about the written technical test and the Sim ride too. Is the SIM ride all raw data or a mixture of managed too. Im current 320 rated too.
24th Jan 2012, 06:52
Hi there, has anyone received or have any insider to provide some information about the contract terms and conditions? (salary, benefits, etc) I've been called for the screening in march and if some one can give a complete details about it woul be great, I've read a post before whic's good but if some one know about more details it would be fantastic. Cheers
24th Jan 2012, 08:03
Those of you that have been contacted by HKA, how long did you wait from initial application? Could you give us some idea of your experience level? CPT or FO? Hrs?
Any info would be appreciated!
27th Jan 2012, 20:27
I ve also sent back the application form and told to call them if no response within 21 days ,,
I sent them 2 emails to check my application status but no response received.
I also tried the Tel no. in their web site,, no one picks up the call.
I applied for the 737-800 F/O position.
27th Jan 2012, 21:18

10th Feb 2012, 06:05
I have had all my e-mails bounce book sayiing there e-mail is full (pilotrecruitment@<hidden>) is there any other e-mail you can send it to that anyone would like to share
11th Feb 2012, 21:54
That's the one I used and it did not bounce.... To me that sounds like no one is checking that email account anymore, or at least not at the moment. Perhaps they have enough candidates at the moment?
23rd Feb 2012, 14:29
Look please below what i got as an answer for an application: Date, no location, no phonenumber - no nothing, Mail is pilot.recruitment@<hidden>, this was 1 week ago.......Could somebody help out of you guys with contactinfo and what is this Sepa in Madrid, did anybody do the Interview in Madrid?
Thanks for Info
Sorry for the late reply.
We will hold an interview in Madrid from 19th and SEPLA is helping us to organize it. Can you contact them directly to join the interview? We are glad to see you there.
23rd Feb 2012, 15:24
Is anyone having the same problem.....When you apply the e-mail bounces back saying there mailbox is full,it has been like this for me for the last month very frustrating....any alternative application methods...?
23rd Feb 2012, 16:46
I'm not surprised you have been unsuccessful in submitting an application, take a look at the email address you have written and compare it carefully to the one on their website.
23rd Feb 2012, 17:51
Was that post directed at me....? how would you know what e-mail adress I have sent it to,I have sent it to the e-mail adress that is on their company website
24th Feb 2012, 10:45
No, I think it was directed at ValKilmer.... There is no "dot" between "hk" and "airlines".... pilot.recruitment@<hidden> is the correct one....
24th Feb 2012, 10:46
...and I have still not heard anything back...nothing.... :suspect:
27th Feb 2012, 11:22

I do have an interview with HKA and would like to have some informations regarding the interview.
What can I expect regarding the technical questions, personal interview as well as the sim profile.
How did you prepare, any book recommandations?
10th May 2012, 22:56
4th Jun 2012, 18:18
Would like to know A330 DEC package.
4th Jun 2012, 23:36
Does anybody have any salary information for Hong Kong Airlines? I'm about to apply and they want me to include my desired salary. I'm not sure if they'd see the humour if I put USD $1M:)
5th Jun 2012, 05:11
Here's a couple of HKA style tech questions for you.
When should you rotate?
a. At VR + 40
b. At VR
If you have dispatched with one pack inop as an MEL item and the other pack fails in the cruise, what would you do?
a. Cancel the ECAM and continue to fly level until the aircraft depressurises.
b. Initiate an emergency descent.
If you answered b to both, you stand a good chance. Because you're doing better than the pilots they have employed so far!
10th Jun 2012, 17:47
Has anyone been invited to screening lately I applied for the 737 Fo position I was told no more recruitment on this fleet do I have a chance of getting in as a non TR 320 FO???????
11th Jun 2012, 09:57
Has anyone been for the A330 Capt or F/O interview? Please PM me for any info.
Very much appreciate it. Thank you.
15th Jun 2012, 17:12
Any update on the terms and conditions for FO A320?
Do they offer ticket and hotac for the screening?
Are there any benefits to Hong Kong Airlines A320 FO vs Dragonair A320 FO beyond the very long upgrade times at Dragonair? Why consider HK Airlines vs Dragonair if you meet the minimums for both? What are the pros/cons? I am aware of the low salaries. Other objective information would be appreciated.
