Malaysian CX Cadet Applicants

hey guys..i applied, and my 8 weeks response time will be coming soon, on the 9th, which falls on a sunday, so am hoping to hear from cathay by monday the 10th.

Just to ask, any other malaysian applicants out there who have either received a response, or are waiting?

Post Hi guys~ I have some questions~

I live in Korea Republic.(In other words, I'm not a HK citizen.)

I'm a junior in university.

I'm majoring flight operations but my flight time is '0'.

This is because of my school's curriculum;;;;;

I don't know the details of CPP cadet pilot programme.

I just know my national airline cadet programme.

I think it's quite different to that.

So, I don't know exactly how CPP cadet pilot programme is processing.

I have some questions~

1. Do I meet the requirements? (junior in university, no degree)

2. How does the cadet programme proceed?
ex) 60 weeks in Adelaide, Australia <- does this mean PPL,IR,CPL,MEL training in Australia?
Then, back to HK and have SO education shown in the website?

3. How much money do I need(bond)? Does CX pays my training expense? Then I should work for CX for 8 years?

4. Is the cadet programme still currently opened?

Waiting for your kind answers. Thank you

Hey CEOICAO,

Just thought I'd share my opinion with you...

1. I believe you meet the basic requirement. Flight experience is NOT a requirement (although it does help), and I know students who get in right after high school.

2. Yes, it is 60 weeks in Australia....but the cadets don't get a PPL at all....they continue training directly for the CPL

3. Financial support will help, but CX covers the main expenses of accommodation, food, training, books...etc etc. There is no "bond" or training cost to you, but the contract states 6 years of service with Cathay Pacific after the Cadet Program.

4. Program is open year round. They send multiple groups down throughout the year.

Hope this helps!

I applied for the program on July 16th and am still waiting to hear back.

I plan to move back to America this winter and start my training, from ppl-mei, but if by some miracle I am admitted into this program, I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Does anyone know how they contact you after you've submitted your application? I was in the Philippines for 10 days and hope they didn't call me. Does CP send you an email to set up a phone interview?

Candidates are initially contacted by phone or email - I've heard of both situations. If a candidate is rejected, they will DEFINITELY make sure the candidate knows - so you will for sure receive an email/letter.

They don't conduct phone interviews - they make calls to schedule interviews but all tests and interviews are conducted in person.

Hello

I am leaving home in Malawi to go begin university in Miami. I applied on the 18th of July and have yet to receive a reply. Once I leave should I inform Cathay of my changing telephone numbers and address or should I just count on being informed via email. Thank you very much.

Ian

@ Darian:

Nope. No response as yet. Do they actually confirm for a rejection as well? or do they just not reply? anybody has any idea?
I ask this because i tried putting in a new application, and it says my previous application is still being processed.

Anybody else from Malaysia who applied? any responses?

I am quite sure I meet the requirements: Have a bachelors, and a masters degree, have pretty much everything else they asked for too.

Just looking around, I found this:
Cathay Pacific - FAQs : Careers

seems to say:
Quote:
7. How do I know if my application is successful or not? Cadet Pilot applicants who do not hear from us within eight weeks may consider their application unsuccessful.
HOWEVER, it's a 2005 page, hasn't been updated so in all likelihood doesn't even apply anymore (still lists the HKID requirement and RA 55!) and they are probably swamped with applications from all over the world (talking about THOUSANDS of candidates who probably meet and exceed the criteria set out). So it's probably just a good idea to sit tight and wait.

Good luck folks, I hope you all get through selection!

Im not sure either but i would believe CX will inform u should ur application unsuccessful...... from other posts, i think CX will mail letter out for fail applicant...... i think u should email them before u fill out another application and i believe there is a cooling off period before u can apply

But I believe my application is unsuccessful b/c i know people get interviewed who applied after me.

I don't have an insider's scoop on the policies at CX Recruitment...however, I am almost positive that they will, at the very least, send a notifiation (email or letter) to rejected candidates.

Also, lets remember that they went from recruiting locally to the whole world - and from this forum it looks like they are doing a bunch of people from one destination before moving on to the next....so its very possible that they just haven't gotten to your apps yet!

Hi,

I was wondering does anyone know when they'll next be doing an assesment in London, or roughly how often they do them in any one country?

Cheers

Correct me if I'm mistaken but I thought you had to be an HK resident to apply for the CX Cadet programme?

It says on their website: You must be a permanent Hong Kong resident

from the CX Cadet recruitment official website:

To qualify for our Cadet Pilot Programme, you must be at least 18 years old and wish to pursue a career with us in Hong Kong. You must be at least 1.6m tall, be physically fit, and possess an excellent command of English.

the HKG residency requirement was lifted about a month ago.

nope you don't need to be. I'm not and i have a interview lined up. i think you just need to be willing to relocate to HK after the program.

@Darian: Did you apply for your first choice interview to be Malaysia? Did the people who got interviewed get theirs done in Malaysia? any Clue?

I am not sure what email address to use to get in touch with CX. Anybody have a contact I could use? I too applied on the 16th of July, with no response yet.
