@Chiba thanks for the reply

yea would love to try but it would be a risk? try liao kena reject means forever rejected by cadet programme right?

anyway, decided to retake gce o levels next year, 5 o's is not a problem at all.

hey Chiba, I know a few SQ pilots who joined at 30 - 31. I think the threshold is 32 if I'm not wrong.

Malaysian only? Wow... That's really a strange move if it's true. Now I wonder why would they have to go to Malaysia and look for Malaysian only cadets and not resume the Singapore/PR/Malaysian selection.

1. judging from the SASP's statement on educational requirements, am I right to say that the 5 O levels which must include eng math sci in ONE SITTING is SIA's requirement and not CAAS's?

2. Would I be eligible to apply for SIA's CADET pilot interview if I have 6 olevels credits taken in 2 sitting?

3. Would i be given a chance to sit in for an interview with SQ or MI if i send in my application as an applicant with a CAAS CPL MEIR f/atpl. I have 6 o levels credit which includes eng math sciences in 2 sitting?
If you interpret the SASP strictly, then yes, it is SIA's requirement. But sometimes the rules are "bent", I suppose more so when demand for cadet pilots is high. I went for interview and I didn't have the O Level requirements.

Based on what's going on recently, if you have a CAAS CPL MEIR, your chances of getting into MI is higher than SQ. I think this is due to SQ's advance jet training at MCY, whereas MI cadets jump straight into A320 (and B737 soon) ground school and sims upon obtaining their CPL/IR.

As for the next intake, I've not heard anything so far.

Del-icious, just try, if not you never know. If you decided to re-take o levels, you may wish to highlight this to the interviewers to show that you are determined to meet the requirements as advertised for the cadet pilot position. I heard that 'forever kana reject for cadet pilot programme' applies to candidates whom have made it to the final round, but did not make it past the final round...heeee... ya, sometimes reality arrives, but who cares? Just apply first.

yannisoar, thanks.. I just thought if there are people my age getting into the program, it will be great if they can share in this forum.

Yes there are people of your age in the program, so no issue.

Hello

Sorry if this has been asked and answered earlier, but when did SIA conduct its last cadet pilot recruitment exercise in Singapore?

Any Idea as to how many:
1) Are waiting for a call to the second round.
2) Waiting for a call for OBS after clearing round 2.

Would paint a clearer picture.

SIA freezes hiring of cadet pilots

Demand for staff hit by slowdown, delayed delivery of new planes

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has frozen cadet-pilot recruitment and cut flying hours for junior pilots amid a business slowdown that has led to a manpower surplus.

The last cadet intake was early this year and it has not been decided when hiring will resume, SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides told The Straits Times. He did not say how many were recruited during the last exercise, but noted that it was a smaller number than in previous years. The usual is about 120 a year.

SIA, which has about 2,400 pilots, last suspended hiring of cadet pilots in 2009 following the global financial crisis. The current slowdown, which caused full-year profits for the 12 months to end-March to dive 69 per cent to $336 million, is also affecting those already flying.

Many junior pilots, especially those on the Boeing 777 fleet, have had their average flying time cut from more than 60 hours a month to less than 50, The Straits Times has learnt.

heh.

... still waiting for some good news to pop up on this thread, any day/week/month now. 2013 1st quarter?

Anyway just curious (and if anyone is interested), is it general practice for ATC to not acknowledge position call on downwind (in a circuit pattern)? Should PIC continue on to final without acknowledgement/clearance and proceed with a go around at minima?
