Highly appreciate if anyone can share/PM a typical SO ROASTER at CX
With the current salary, an S/O's looks like this:



It should look like this:

Get a life and grow up!

Can the senior blokes - for goodness sake, stop whining. I think all aspirant CX pilots' would apprecite some advice and not cynical comments. My presumption is that pple want to work for CX because they admire the airline. They are not spoilt know it all brats as one pilot put it.

Ok, point noted, what pple want to hear is not the "positive" advice they get. However, how and what are the wannabes learning from you folk (the senior CX Cynics)? Definitelty a paranoid approach, childish behaviour - yes, it sickens me to the gut the manner in which some of you comment, an autocratic approach to juniors - trust me, we take note of how some of you treat us (the juniors) and it worries us that we might end up like "you" pple, stop indoctrinating us with paranoia!

IF THE TRUTH IS TO BE SAID, THE SENIOR BLOKES NEED TO GROW UP AND GO TO THE GYM INSTEAD OF SEATING BEHIND THE COMPUTER TYPING TRASH ON THIS FORUM IN THEIR CLUTTERED ROOMS AND WITH THEIR BEER BELLIES!

For crying out loud....what on earth is wrong with you lot?

You have the gall and cheek to have a go at guys that were flying before any of you were an itch in your fathers pants and yet you write as if you're 12 year olds texting some girl.

Pple!!! Ur!!!!

You want any of the guys at CX to take you seriously? Write your posts like adults and the professionals you supposedly aspire to be.

Ok, so poor widdle slotsdown is telling the experienced guys to grow up, based on his wealth of life experience and G(r)obRanger has been polluting bandwidth with his brand new handle... You two have no idea the impact your current actions will have on YOUR OWN future. I mean it's not that hard. Go and sit in a quiet room without your phone for half an hour and take the situation to it's logical conclusion. The people you are bemoaning now for whining WILL be you in 25 years time. You are your own worst enemy, you just don't realise it yet.

The hypocrisy and irony from you two is staggering. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Christ Almighty help us all if this is typical of the standard coming through wanting a career in aviation. If it is, might go back to single pilot...

What You think is whining is actually advice. Why don't you believe what the people who actually work for Cx tell you instead of justifying your foolish decision. You are getting shafted that is the the plain and simple truth. If you can't see it now you will in a few years and then Post your smarties
Remark on this forum.

ixg888,

Sorry but to be honest, your post sounds insulting to anyone who will just give you the answer.

You have demonstrate absolutely nothing towards research of your own.

Im just going to spoon-feed you the answer this time, as I think someone else will anyways.

Q: do you qualify as SO for CX

A 1: www.cathaypacific.com scroll down, click on careers, flight deck jobs. and I believe theres a tab that reads "requirements", click on that, read the requirements and I think you should have your answer.

A 2: read this thread, 190+ pages on information (and crap)

If you have done enough research to do an A320 self sponsored type rating, please have at least the minimum amount of respect towards CX pilots (not me) that are helping in this forum by showing a bit of innitiative on your side!

sorry to be blunt, but it is shocking for someone to want to join an airline without even looking at their website.

CX

good day sir, here is the requirement that i have read on their website.

Advanced Entry – a 32-week programme for applicants who possess an ICAO CPL and have in excess of 250 hours flight time in specified categories.

with all due respect sir, I have done my fair research in my re-application for CX.
my question in my position is, I think, is valid as there was no mention of an added rating will help me in my RE-application this time as an advance entry pilot. When I applied for CX last year I only had 22 Hours and wasn't able to qualify. So all I did was train and improve before my 12-month duration for re-application arrive. It so happened that my training went faster than expected.

So I decided to go through a FOTraining for airbus 320 to be able to show CX what kind of preparation after my initial application.

Sir, I apologize for any insults that you think I had caused. But it was just an honest query.

Thank you and good day.

Advanced entry requirements:

Total hours = 250
Total PIC not including PIC u/s= 100
Total cross country = 35
Cross Country PIC = 30
Total Night Time = 10
Night PIC = 5
Night T/O and LDGs PIC = 10
Night Navigation training = 1
Night Dual = 3
Instrument flying = 10

This is from a form I received by CX when I applied....

P2 and P2X hours are counted at half rate.

Ixg888 re: A320

If it doesn't say 'Airbus/Boeing Rating would be advantageous', it aint gonna help. Not for AE programme anyway.....

I agree with the above post, dont think the a320 type rating will assist in any way, shape or form with CX well atleast for AE cadets,

au contraire, mon frère...

ixg888s' willingness to pay for a rating is fodder for the CX recruiting peons.

It's indicative of a well developed case of SNJ syndrome, eager to spend daddy's money to subsidise the inadequate illDoAnythingForAnAirlineJob pocket money.

He should be sure to tell the recruiters that he has his own jar of Vaseline, will pay for his uniform, and really, really, really doesn't want any salary, ever. A bit of begging and something to kneel on will probably help too. Don't forget the Rolex watches for the interviewers.

CX tech quiz 1st interview

Hi All,
Just back from the 1st initial interview but pretty screwed up about the tech quiz. Does anyone know how it is taken into account? Do we have to be successful at 75% or more or less like the Atpl exam, is there an minimum average to get etc??
I am pretty sure I've done several mistakes and I'm do stressed about it!!

Thanks
