Cadets getting recalled

Heard a rumour that some of the courses from cp94 to cp97 were recalled back for work. Is this true?

Don’t be getting your hopes up for non-PR SO’s returning. That’s likely to be 2023 😂

Is that a windup Ace? They won't be hiring SO's any time soon. They aren't desperate enough just yet. They can't even get a cadet into Adelaide to get them trained.

Have also heard that they are recalling the cadets from those CPs. Seems to be those SOs that were made redundant at the same time as KA was shut down. The cadets that came back from Adelaide but did not start SO training have not been recalled.

Tell him to get in line, there’s a long list of highly experienced Pilots in front of him wanting work again…..and not just in the smelly Harbour.

experience and second officers don’t tend to go in the same sentence. Perhaps you’re referring to DEFO?

Regardless, VISA’s will not be issued to foreigners anytime soon. Cathay are filled to the brim with second officers. Best you explore other career options during this down time.

Word has it that DFO the magnificent is not pleased with the stubbornly high levels of experience ( i.e. pay) and is taking steps to drive average experience levels down even farther than he has already.. This as well satisfies the CX Board of Directors ( specifically Merlin and the family) in furthering their quest to end any semblance of a "meritocracy" in the Swire group. They much prefer that age old British (Swire) hierarchy of Incompetent Elite vs Serf.. Rule Britannia !

No one in their right mind would move here as an SO if they have a family. 70-80% of your monthly wage required for rent alone. Never mind the 'worlds most expensive shopping basket' at the supermarket.

For the slow learners. SO's don't move here anymore. Not without PR anyway.

I don’t think so, this can open up a host of legal and financial problems especially if they are PRs still residing in HK.

Rumour is they've found/returned to other gigs outside aviation. So far I've heard 2 anecdotes
