That is correct you will only gain a CPL and a Frozen ATPL which will be unfrozen after 1500 hours. Also a full ATPL or frozen is issued once you are over 21

I should know this but.... do you know any place that sell this book if I don't feel like ordering it online? Is there an English version?

What other reading materials have you touched on? and if so, where can I get a hold of them?

I'm using the BAK textbook atm and its giving me a good insight into how things work. I've also looked on Amazon and eBay but everything seems similar.

There's also some useful apps that I can purchase on iTunes but i dunno what's more important.

The architect, you are also from hk, right? The books are 翹首振翅. They were published quite a long time already.

Do you mind if I join in even though I'm not even at that stage yet? Would love to find some buddies to study together.

Hey buddy, dont worry about other books yet alright? Stage 1 isnt demanding at all regarding technical knowledge.

However, I did regret not looking at the JKI and their website a little longer during the first exam (although I cleared stage 1 successfully), so study up and loosen the grip. You will get more information along the way.

THANKS wcy!

Any more updates on AE courses from anyone with inside info? Year and a half now since they froze out the expats.

Hearing CX needs about 200 pilots next year and surely not going to be able to get that from locals only. Also aren't a few 777's coming early and a lot of upgrades filtering pilots up?

Just wondering now we are in the next financial year if the company is taking another look at recruitment for the next 12 months

Hey Varun, (and everyone else who have schedules coming up)

When you are attending your sessions, make sure to get the phone numbers and / or Whatsapps of the other applicants. It is likely you will be scheduled for the same day next stage if successful and it will make meeting up much easier.

I made the error of not getting their phone numbers and I lost permanent contact with some of my 1B buddies .: sobs :.

If you want an idea of what to read and prepare just flip back a few pages and all will be clear.

Not to be rude but I suggest you brush up your English before the interview.
