After reading the description of the programme, I realise it will cost $3000 non-refundable application fee and other additional costs including IELTS test and basic medical check. But after spending so much money, offer is not guaranteed - actually even the initial interview is not guaranteed. Do you guys think it is that worth a try?

Hi,

I think the page has been updated now. If not the link to the registration page is

https://ema.ctcaviation.com/HongKong...-ATPL/register

Looks like an awesome opportunity especially since it is fully funded. Not sure if you need Hong Kong citizenship to apply though. Best of luck!

3k is for sure reasonable. Just checked on british council, IELTS costs you 1930 and will be increasing in JUL2017. It also includes a testing fee with the flight school which it claims to be the first round.

I think the problem to all is that the timing for the payment. Some think its not worth at all, why am I paying for this uncertainty, I'm not even guaranteed for an interview or offer? why should I?

I will put it in this way. We all will be confident and well prepared before hitting the apply button, why 3k stops you from acheiving your dream.

Its like its just 3k.

According to the information, it would be the academic one. You can take a look in their webpages.

Career talk

Did anyone go to their recently held career talk in the exhibition centre? Did they give more info on how the selection process gonna be like?

If ctc is doing the initial selection process for HX, that means we gonna be facing cut-e?? (Just browsing through websites, looks like they recently change to cut-e as well)

I sent an email to them asking the same question. This following is their response.

"For application, we understand that not everyone will have IELTS. Please declare your academic entirely and we can confirm that you will not be automatically disqualified. If successful in the selection you may be required to have IELTS submitted at a later stage.

Thank you
Cadet,pilot"
