I got the call for the ab initio for Oct 3rd. Very unexpected since I applied around Feb.
Just curious if anyone in HK wants to work together before the big day?

Morning chaps, I'm glad to see there is some life in this thread.

my question, to any one that has been through it or is going through the cadet programme is... I sent in my application about a month ago, i'm aware that a waiting period is normal but how long can i expect to wait for a call to interview? or to say sorry not succesful to that matter.

I'm the holder of an ICAO CPL ME IR, so naturally i applied for the qualified cadets.

any help would be much appreciated!

happy landings!

hi

Is there anyone who recently got invited for an initial interview holding an ATPL, +1500hrs?

Or are they really looking for cadets with little experience (250hrs)?

Thanks!

Hello,

Just wondering if a couple of my questions could be answered.

Where are the interview and assessment locations? I noticed on the application form you can choose. Just wondering if they have them in a variety of countries?

What is the all important price tag of this scheme?

Thanks!

About GBP1,000,000 over the course of your career if you stay at CX for all of it.

I also applied about 6 weeks ago. I chased after 3 weeks of not hearing and got what seem to be a personal response sayingthat they would consider my application along with others when they next recruit from my region (uk)

I'm just enjoying the ppl at the moment and will see what comes next

PPL

Ianp83. If you only have a PPL why are you applying? It seems pretty clear from reading this forum that only Hong Kong ID card holders will be considered for ab initio regardless of what the website says.

Also, six weeks isn't very long in Cathay world. The wait times quoted on here for a call back range from 4 to 18 months.

The COMPASS test is very draining, especially if you've had a full day of other tests and interviews. Get a good nights rest if you can.

Well by the time you get to your hotel from Cathay City, the Rejection/Approval email will be in your mailbox. This is how fast you get the reply.

I believed lonestar2012 is referring to stage 2 in HK where it comprises of 2 days.
In the evening of day 1, you will received a rejection/approval letter stating whether you make it to day 2. If you are successful, you will have to report to them in the morning. If not you are free to tour around HK till your departure time.

You are right Redondo, that's what I was referring to.

Fabby88 Do you mean you are waiting for your Stage II interview? I had to wait for 3 months to get their reply.
