congrats dude! Have you done your ICAO yet?
That is a bit strange... maybe they changed the format of the math questions this year..... before it was 33 questions in 30 mins.. i wonder how it changed.. anyone take the 2nd stage interview recently and is willing to share?

ksh -

Have you been called for the interview? In that case, don't worry about it till they tell you what to do.

Then why would they invite pilots with <250Hrs, at the first place, for stage one interviews after December?!!
Because the invites were put out before the HK Immigration Department made their ruling. As I have said interviews occurred after the ruling in December and January because they were invited prior to the ruling and were assured visas by the Immigration Department if successful. If you donít believe me, ring them and find out for yourself.

Youíre kidding right? Why should they interview you if you donít meet the requirements for the AE or TT cadet course? To get a work permit in HK, CX must sponsor you and to sponsor you, you must meet the requirements at the time of interview. My advise, go and do the flying and re-apply when you meet the requirements for the AE or TT cadets courses.

Wow A330! That is really amazing! A few months ago a lot of people bashed you up here about your english, but now, a cadet pilot! I'm sure you deserve it! Well done man! When are you going to ADL? Which CP?

Good luck homeboy! Wish you the best! Now it is our turn, but the HKG Gov don't let me pass the boarder anymore.

Hey All,

First time post, so please be gentle

I think I ticked a lot of boxes already, I got HK ID card, born and raised in Australia, fluent cantonese and english, currently living in Adelaide and working in the Aviation Industry as an electrical engineer..

Also planning to get 5-10hours at Parafield Airport in the next month to 'impress' the interviewers (if i get an interview)..

I submitted my Cathay cadet application in Jan 2012, and hopefully will get a reply soon!

Anyone here from Adelaide (or any cities in Australia) and still awaiting a response from Cathay? If so, how long have you been waiting for?


Much appreciated,

lucky86.

Lucky86, for which interview location did you applied for? If you choose HKG, I'm sure you will get the first interview sooner then another location! But it also depends on the recruitment team. But now is the 61 wks programme only available for HKID holders, so I think the recruiters will stay in HKG.

Best of luck!

hello captain weird,

I stated i want my initial interview in adelaide, hopefully that does not deter my chances in getting an interview.

More than happy to travel to HK for an interview ofcourse, but that as CX expense?

Cheers

First interview is at your expense - only stage 2/3 and flight grading are covered by CX.

English re-test

Now because Icao English test is a part of stage 3 and so I think the re-test,does CX provide tickets for Icao English re-test?

flyber, you are probably best asking CX directly - i've actualy heard of some people having their ICAO after flight grading, when they go to HK to complete some HR type course before heading off to Adelaide for official training. Some people do the ICAO test before their stage 2. I think it just depends on the circumstances and CX's schedule.

It may be to do with if you speak fluent English as if it were your native language. If you do they don't worry about it so schedule your test when possible. If your English is not perfect they probably get you to do the test during selection.

@orangeboy and sloppyjoe

Thanks for the reply. Btw English is not my first language but I don't think my English is that bad to deserve a re-test. Anyway, I hope all will be well,in 6 months time as they said, but I cannot imagine being asked to pay for the fare back to HK just for the Icao English re-test.Any ideas?

Flyber, don't waste your time thinking for your f*cking crazy ticket man.. That's ridiculous.

I would more worry about the retake itself than your ticket. Besides, would it be so bad to pay for your ticket to HKG?

Put your effort and brains in the ICAO test, the ticket will come by itself.

@cw

Thanks for the advice, I will now focus on the re-test. Maybe they have other plans on the tickets,who knows. Would someone who have done this re-test thing mind sharing the experience please.
