HKA is no longer hiring as they are restructuring.

No more non type rated, and less than 3000 hours guys.

HKA Recruitment

So does that mean if someone has over 3000 TT and only Type Rated on the A320 , they can get a look in.

Can someone on the inside of HKA elaborate that for us.

Yup...From a fren of mine who applied recently:

He went for interview recently. He is rated on A330...with more than 3000hrs. And they sent him an email stating his successful application pending medical.

So its true...

FM,


I'm hearing that it is 3 months. I don't know what the breakdown is within that time frame, but if you find out please keep us posted.


Thanks.

They were setting up a cadet program in Europe last year for those without flying experience.

It's ridiculous because they make you pay for all the training and at the end, you MIGHT get an interview. An interview, not offer of employment. So after you spend all those money getting trained to be a pilot, you might not even get an interview.

I realize that's how almost all other pilots do it, but if you are going to set up a "cadet program", you can make them pay for it but you have to hire them or else whats the difference between the cadet program and normal flight school?

Hong Kong Airlines will provide the following assistance as you transition to living and working in Hong Kong:
1. 2 weeks hotel stay will be provided when you arrive in HKG for training.
2. Moving expenses (shipping personal effects or excess baggage charges) will be reimbursed up to $4,448.
3. Up to 4 one way tickets for employee and family will be provided from your home to HKG.
Google is your friend ;-)

Looking at these numbers, nowhere near enough money to live well in HK.

Good grief! You couldn't live in the Philippines on that, more less HK. What a complete joke. It would have to be 3 to 4 times that amount to even begin to be acceptable living in HK.

I'm not sure what you're smoking, as this is more than double what a new joiner s/o at CX would get, and probably at least 30% more than a new joiner f/o at KA would get. I'm not saying it's great, but they still seem to be getting guys willing to join so it can't be that bad. And you'd be living like a king in the Philippines on that.

Top FO pay (3000hr jet) = 84750HKD -50hr flight (10900USD) which including housing.

lower FO pay (1500hr jet) = 77250HKD-50hr flight (9900USD) including housing.

Top Capt pay (3000hr jet) =123750HKD -50hr flight (15960usd) including housing
Low Capt (<3000hr) =113750HKD (14600usd)

if you fly a330 (FO or Capt) ADD ANOTHER 2500 (FO) /5000hkd (600usd) CAPT allowance PER MONTH.
