besides SIA, are there any other airlines that accepts sgreans as cadets? i dun mind trying again. just called SIA n they still refuse to reveal the reason. n they also said no point in me applying SIA again. can it be due to downsizing?

yeah, once u get rejected anywhere further than the 1st round, your chance of getting into SIA in future is as gd as zero

u can try cathay pacific

jetstar also can, but it's not cheap, training costs is almost S$200,000

@gh0st

yes, try Cathay for her cadetship programme. alternatively you can try getting a license in Oz, Nz or Msia would be a good idea.. some people i know go to australia to find work in relation to their current field, and as a sideline do a pilot's licence.. and once u get your CPL you can try look for flying jobs and consider quitting your land based job.

If u really want to be an airline pilot no one can stop you.. on the other hand u will need to be financially strong to pull through the self-sponsored training and maybe first year of job hunting/travelling for interviews.

merino n umustb - r both of u from the 10 Nov 2nd round interview?

thanks for everyone advice. will take a look at cathay. jetstar cost of about 200k is too high. n if both still fails, i may just have to settle for a PPL n fly for recreation instead of a career.

I just received my first interview opportunity with Singapore Airlines. Feeling pretty excited and nervous already. I was advice to see an eye doctor to do some test. Obviously due to the fact that I'm wearing glasses? Here's what I have been told

P
lease see a qualified doctor (optician not acceptable) for a visual acuity eye-test with and without optical aids (Snellen's Chart) and colour vision test (Ishihara) and submit the original copy of the report on the day of the interview. The cost of the eye-test and colour vision test will be on your own account.

Anyone can suggest a clinic for having this eye test conducted? I did once 4 yrs ago at this clinic located at Paya Lebar, but just can't seem to recall the name of the clinic. Any sensible advice will be very much appreciated.

Jan 14

succorer ...I'm in the same boat as you.
I'm also scheduled for Jan 14. Been reading up on everything.
Wonder how technical it will get ? How far into the planes engine do I need to know besides induction, compression, combustion and trust ?

I hope everyone gets through.


Did someone realized that the fleet size increased these few days on the website ?
As updated by SIA ..the fleet size is now 110 instead of previously 105?... CEO also going to be changed tomorrow..

Hi spidex99

well, i'm not alone then

i have no idea about the technical questions, but looking at the previous interviews it has been always like anything under the sun especially if you already have flying experience which i'm not though

but i'm already pissed off looking at my educational qualifications. i recently graduated with a masters in mechanical engineering so i suspect they would grill me with technical questions

good to know about the changes in the fleet and CEO.

it will be great if the Jan 7th batch guys share their experience. it gives us an idea of what to expect.

Alwo
Thanks for the tips. I been reading up on planes, engines and the past accident that happens on airplanes to bulk up. Not much of my job is related to aviation but I certainty hope to get in. As for GE 90-115B, i know its for 777-300ER with a thrust power of 115,000lbs and SIA has 19 of these puppies at the moment..

Hope to become a cadet.
