right, fair enough.

Makes sense then that they are pairing up the two locations for stage 2 successful applicants to then participate together in HKG.

Interesting 4-5 days in JBG vs 9-10 in Mumbai...

anyone know the upcoming schedule?

Hi nkand,

I want to know this year's international interview schedule as well (I reside in Adelaide). I've sent an email to CX a few days ago, hopefully they will reply with something...
But I have a feeling they don't give it out that easily...

Correction-
8 days, for sure, in BOM and 5 days, to my knowledge, in JNB.

thats not correct either.. BOM was 16th feb to 29th feb. morning and afternoon sessions (6 per session)

@dolpinsky
Did you receive any confirmation email from CX recruitment? If so, the initial interview should include some form of tests.

Hey dolpinsky,

Looks like you're in the same sitaution as me! Reside in Adelaide and apply for CX?

You have HKID? You applying with 0 flight hours? Or you have hours under your belt already? And when did you submit your online application?

Thanks mate, look forward to your reply!

Ab-initio preparation

Hey, I would like to ask for any specific reading material that would be handy to prepare for the ab-initio programme.
I've read almost all of the pages on this forum and noticed that most of the people posting about their experiences were applying for the AE and quite a few of the posts relating to the ab-initio programme were a few years ago so wanted to see if there were any new updates.
I've seen two books - 'mental math for pilots' and 'pilots rule of thumb'
Does anyone know which would provide better information/help and if there are any others relating specifically to aviation knowledge?

Thanks!

flight test in adelaide?

Hi guys!

I have applied for AE at Cathay Pacific. I have completed the initial interview and was in Hong kong i february and completed day 1 and 2. I am waiting for the result now.

However i have heard some rumors about a flight test in Adelaide. Can anyone tell me about that. Will you have to do a flight test in Adelaide before i get the final answer or what?

Of course i will do the flight test in adelaide but i haven't heard about it before

Thanks

I've been working my way through the FAA PHAK for a while - its very good! And I hadn't heard of any of the Jeppesen materials but just had a look on their site, looks really good!

Thanks for the info + support!

I was invited initial interview guess that is stage 1 in SG and was told they will send additional information soon after I accept the request.

So was wondering if any one got the same invitation yet. or got a confirmation for that yet.
