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.
Hey there guys! I am just curious to know if any foreigner has already been through the application and interview stages with Cathay Pacific?
If so, how long does it generally take before they let you know if you've passed the initial screening and been selected for an interview?
Also, on the application form, they has choices for the interview locations. Are all interviews conducted in HK, or your location (mine's within Asia)?
I ask this because I couldn't help but compare the Etihad application. I had received my interview offer within a week of applying, but was one of the unfortunate ones when they cancelled the Singapore Assessment Day.
I can see from other threads that this is a hot topic, especially because HK residents are not very pleased with the idea of the Cadet Programme being open to all nationalitites, but keep replies to this thread clean. It might benefit all the others out there too, HK residents or foreigners, who might have applied for the scheme.
So, the minimum flight time required, which I know is 0. But what is the maximum flight time allowed to enter the cadet program? And if selected are you allowed to bring your wife to AUST. and she can be in her own place. Shes a lawyer and might be able to get a visa to AUST. via the territory.
Please no funny answers, just straight answers please. Myself and wife are seriously disscussing this issue...Thank god my wife say "wherever we need to go baby, we'll go there"
"Our selection process and training programme are rigorous. You need not have previous flying experience, but you should be ambitious and enthusiastic. This is a career path with a goal to becoming a Captain, and the chance to be a very important member of our team." (italics added).
I have a little question, if anyone could help find the answer:
I don't know if I should apply as I currently have 135h of flight and I will be doing my Commercial Theory Exam on Tueday, followed by the flight test within 10 days, and I will have my Multi/IFR licence by August.
So If I apply today, by the time CX replies to me, I would already have all my licences. I didn't see a maximum amount of flying experience so I wonder how they woud deal with me if I show up to the Cadet Program with already all my licences?
Do you think they look at military experience as a negative? Does any one have any good recommendations for research websites with regards to the actual program, salary and testing requirements that aren't already listed on the careers website? Thanks
I got a phone call from one of the HR personnels today saying I passed the initial test and I can attend the Stage 1 interview. Can anyone tell me what can I expect from this interview? I'm having this interview tomorrow morning, so a quick reply is appreciated!!
I was wondering if those of you who may know about having to much flight time.I hold an australian cpl with 335hrstt and about 50hrs multi, also having all my subjects except atpl.Finally im 38yrs of age is this seen as over the hill for this type of course?Looking forward to hear from anyone who knows more about this.
yes, i do believe the bond is around that time. 8 years, if im not mistaken. And, apparently, there are no expat benefits for foreign applicants either. its long haul flights, mostly. progression is something like: S.O., Jr. F.O., F.O., Snr F.O.,Captain..
I applied from Malaysia too. Exactly one month ago. I am still waiting for a response too. From the threads, I'm assuming that they're having interview sessions from the larger application locations, and will possibly have the rest in HK. I could be totally wrong though..
