TT Courses

So, 12 months has well and truly lapsed. Yet we are still waiting. Having passed up a few sort after jobs here in Australia, I'm beginning to doubt I made the right call. Recruitment still can't give an answer. What's going on??

Do you have a HK(P)ID?

Yes, we've all heard the speculations and I'm not denying them.

The point is, having passed all assessments, interviews, 747 sim check etc and given a 'yes letter' well over a year ago, we are still being told to hold on for a start date. If immigration or other issues are the case, why can't they just officially tell us? If they had, I would have taken my experience elsewhere.

What speculations?

It is firm, no non-HKID holders until further notice.

Why don't they just let you know it will not happen any time soon? To keep the experience in a pool ready at the snap of a finger.

Just out of interest, what is your level of experience? Hours, most complex/heaviest type etc.

I'm curious as to what experience this iCadet program is attracting.

Please don't feel obligated to reply in the public domain - a PM would more than suffice.

Hey Cpt,

Out of interest do you know for a fact that the HKID is affecting all the SO streams (Cadet, AE, TT) and not just the Cadets, or is it just an opinion?

It's a fact.

The training plans for 2014/5 have just been released and the numbers don't look promising for anything other than HK(P)ID holders - the numbers are so low that they can easily fill the courses offered without going outside of what the HKG Immigration department will allow.

CPL & ATPL books

Hi all, I would like to ask for some recommendations on good reference books for CPL & ATPL. I heard someone said FTA is using Jeppesen textbooks, is that real?

Cx

Hi cpt underpants,
Noticed your replies for some time on the cx wannabes. Recently you posted about the low numbers required for the 2014/15 training program. I've been on hold for the last two years. To fill your curiosity on icadet experience myself and a mate also on hold have 4000+ and 2000+ turboprop 1000+jet rpt and still losing out to ab initio cadets. Not just cx either. Industry wide companies taking no experience guys who pay their endos etc over low to mid level experience guys. Suppose 5-6 years you'd have the same experience but why not start higher up the tree if you have the choice... Anyway tangent/rant over.. What was your source? Lol

ATPL advice

Hi everyone,
i have read from some websites that cx cadet pilot programme requires some sort of ATPL MCQ test. Is this true for those who went through or is this for the transition entry programme? Will the technical interview also contain such questions? (I am a bit concerned about signing up because I don't have much ATPL knowledge, after all the cadet pilot programme is for those who don't have flying experience)

Hey Loeks,

Niks van die comment aantrekken hoor, goede en legitieme vraag. Momenteel leiden ze enkel mensen op met de identiteit van dit land; ook al heb je vorige rondes overleefd, het wordt/is inderdaad wachten geblazen. De situatie op de arbeidsmarkt kan dit beleid altijd weer veranderen, dus wanhoop niet. Sterkte.

2 weeks ago I submitted my online application for Cathay Pacific CPP

4 days later they sent me an invitation to the Initial selection

I have accepted the test schedule, they have made a confirmation and sent me the JKI booklet and I have been studying

Everything seems alright, but yesterday they told me I am not shortlisted and will not proceed with my application.

Does anyone here experienced this?

I have no idea what happened and how to fix it. If I was rejected after the tests or interview then I know what I did wrong and what to do. All I could do is send an email to ask for a reason, but they don't seem to reply these emails.
