Greatbattle and Hklovers,

I see you guys are locals. Do you really want to have these guys on your course if you are successful?

I don't know. When I did stage 1 the filters must have been broken judging by the applicants I sat with.

I failed my first after Stage 1b. I applied 12 months later but had to decline the invitation due to studies overseas. Waited another 12 months to apply again. Technically, this is my third attempt.

They ask me to re-apply in 6 months time
Have they lowered the waiting period between attempts now?

Yes, i have checked with some of the others who didnt make it and were given the option to re-apply in 6 months time, although i doubt they were given priority or any sort in that matter, back to the end of the line.
How long did u need to wait after you applied the second time to get the invitation? Good luck on ur 3rd attempt ..

Around 6 months for all three times. My stage 1 is pretty soon actually. And thanks.

If you read this thread from the beginning, there was this poster: "holdmetight" I think it was this guy who failed his first time and got in the second time. I think he has a PPL at the time of his early posts.

HKID Card - Right to Land

Hi Folks

Does anyone know if CX will accept a HKID Card with Right to Land status for the Cadet Pilot Program? I don't think this ID card is considered a Permanent ID card, but does allow the holder to live, work and study in Hong Kong. I noticed that on the CX Careers website that they mention applications are welcomed by Permanent ID card holders, but was wondering if the Right to Land status was accepted as opposed to Right of Abode.

Thanks

SK

Just out of interest, did you guys all apply for Dragonair as well? If you did, what was the result? I hear the pay and benefits there are much better than CX.

Dragonair SO recruitment is something I know very little about. I know they certainly don't take foreigners unless its DEFO or DEC.

What I have heard is that most people try Dragonair first and then have a go at CX if they are don't make it. I have no way to verify this though. I just wondered why you would be an SO at CX for anything up to 4 years when at Dragonair your flying in the RHS an awful lot sooner. Is it that CX are long haul maybe?

The main thing for me is that I don't want to spend 30+ years of my life flying to China. Other reasons are as stated before, Cathay having a mixed fleet makes for more avenues of exploration and learning, and the diversity of the workplace (at least for now) is attractive for someone like me who doesn't want to work in a place that is 95% Chinese. Then there are flying long haul routes, which are much less stressful and hectic than short haul.

Of course these are all personal reasons, and one person may think different from the next, but at least for me, they make the longer progression time seem a little more worth.

You may want to rethink the long haul preference... it takes years off your life as a consequence of constant circadian rhythm distortions and severe radiation exposure.

It's the elephant in the room. It's there, it's hard to ignore, but no one will talk about it.

Does anyone know the updated categories for Flight Grading? Less than how many hours is Basic/Intermediate/Advanced?

I did read some previous posts about Flight Grading and one post in particular by happyguy99, that it was Basic if 15 hours or less, Intermediate if more than 30 hours, and Advanced if you have license. I hear that they might have changed it over the years.


I have close to 10 hours but haven't flown in four years. Do they take into account how often/recent the last few hours were logged?

Thanks!
