No aptitude cuz you're in the MPL program. Your COMPASS test will comes after your interview. Good luck.

Dragonair ICAO English test

Hello guys!

How Are you? I passed the interviews and the simulator test on the last year but unfortunately I haven't passed the ICAO English test. Somebody of you passed that test? I understood everything on test and I replied in accordance of the records but they told me that I didn't make it. Now I am going to have a retest do you have any suggestion for me? I am Italian.

Cheers!

2. Initial Interview
3. ICAO english proficiency test
4. Skills Assessment
5.Second Interview

Does the COMPASS test of KA looks pretty much the same as CX? wonder if there's gonna be stuffs other than compass in the skill assessment stage.

KA cadet program allowance

Hi sorry if you guys can help me out.

I want to know how much allowance do you get during the cadet program training duration.
and I assume that is on top of the food and acoomodation, so most likely it is just extra money right?

Cheers

Hi guys,

I am getting very nervous now as I will be having my inital test in 3 weeks time.
I am an overseas applicant but the email didn't specific the date or detail of the amplitude test? I am really confused whether I should study and prepare for it?
It only specific the date for inital test, interview and icao. I guarantee I applied cpl.

And a updated resume should include the cover letter too?

Thanks guy and wish me luck

Unfortunately I won't be attending the interview/assessment right now... The flights to HK is stupid $$$ Air Canada wants almost $2,000 round trip... and if I pass the first stage they want me back in April... Going to be spending $4000CAD~ that's not including the cost of hotel yet... I might need a little bit of time to save up

I can only hope they will move my interview to a later date... so I can plan a bit better

Good Luck everyone who's got assessment/interviews coming up!

dolpinsky, as far as i know they won't be holding any overseas interview this year. I've emailed the recruitment team and asked the same question before and they said they don't have any plans in holding any overseas interviews this year.
