South Asia and Far East WannabesA forum for those applying to Cathay Pacific, Dragonair or any other Hong Kong-based airline or operator. Use this area for both Direct Entry Pilot and Cadet-scheme queries.
So you fly for CX, then? You've yet to master the basics of grammar, yet we're expected to trust you at the controls of a jet airliner? If you are at all representative of the quality of cadet that CX is taking on, then you are unwittingly validating CB's argument.
@CB - how many years have you been haunting this thread now?!
@ any other hopefuls - by all means take advantage of this magnificent opportunity that Cathay is offering you - airline interview practice. This experience will be invaluable later on when applying for a real job!
Did a whole bunch of posts get deleted? Because this post looks a little out of place now[/edit]
Yeah - it seems like all of this kid's posts have all gone, even his latest speil on advising us all on circling approaches again.
What a way to make so many enemies so quickly, so willingly and so proudly.
I saw his latest post here prior to it being deleted and decided to take the advice of a guy with more experience with CX and probably airline time (STP) and hence not bite back. Am proud to say his advice was spot on.
I reckon I could also take the advice of others more junior to me as well, like hihi . Cheers mate..... I hope all is working out OK since the last PM's a while ago.
Would also Like to hear from anyone that has information on the Transition Sim Check for stage 2...
And CB, seriously mate, you need to let this go, your just painting a picture of yourself as a very cranky, angry & sour individual. We've all heard your piece a thousand times & appreciate your thoughts, But its time to let this one go...
Largely cut and pasted from the other thread due the dual bitch slap....
I had left it alone you ignorant brat. Then you cheap shot from behind. You ask for information but only want one side of the story. Someone asked if there was an engine failure for the DESO sim, and there was. I gave 95% of the profile for you. It was the last comment which was not appreciated, obviously. Raw nerves....?? Mental pigmies like you choose to keep a war going when I was content to leave it alone.
You've been asking for stage 2 tips since Nov '11 for some supposed stage 2 interview in Jan '12. Still confused? More deluded but it's got to be expected when you're just so goddam childish.
Leave it alone kid and I will. You want information? I suppose you'll blame me for passing this along as well...??
I may be being a bit paranoid, but I'm just wondering how long does it take for cathay to call back after initial 1A if i pass it? I have done it on wednesday and waiting for their callback, tho the email clearly said they will call me and arrange a date for 1B within 2 weeks if I pass it. Anyone can share their experience on this?
Ab initio do a standard compass test. AE applicants do the Advanced compass test.
Check this link as it outlines what to expect. The main thing would be to brush up on your maths, memory and basic physics as the other bits can't really be prepared for. Actually, it would probably be more important to get a good nights rest beforehand as the test is very draining.
Johnson, just be patient, if they say they will call you back within 2 weeks, they will. They are normally very swift to tell people if they fail, so generally speaking, no news is good news - in most cases anyway.
Hi tcyandy, Are u doing ab initio? How long did u wait until u get the invitation for stage two after the ICAO test? Coz I did my ICAO 3 weeks ago but still no news at all. Kinda worry about it. Thanks
