Hi all!

Applied for CPP last sunday and got notified on monday (they work that fast?!)

I will have my 1A on 10/9 (wed). Need to "flick" my working place .

I'm also finding books to read about.... When I read the posts about the CX interview, I come found something related to extreme calculations.... Eg. IAS to ground speed calculation in different temperature and altitude, wow, is that true?

And do they expect us ( I have 0 flying experience except some simulator) to know how to recover from a spin?

Thanks everyone and good luck!

Hi jjdiy,

Focus on the JKI booklet, most of the questions come from there.
Plus some Cathay info (What aircraft does Cathay fly...)

For the compass test, practice your hand and eye, simple maths would definitely help.

Ah yes. JKI is a must read. Only if u are comfortable with the content there then u study more from other sources. Fleet and company info are really important too

As many others mentioned such as chris 186, read the JKI and a bit beyond the material that is there within the JKI booklet. Info such as the company, the fleet, and weather systems etc. which can be found in a basic flight theory book. Good luck!

thanks a lot.

i'm grinding on the book and i think i will finish the book in 3 hours.

But I have something to struggle with........ the clouds and construction of a gimbal

do we really need to understand the structure of it....?


I also read the "Ace_the_Technical_Pilot_Interview"

wow, this one is quite a struggle... things are not really hard but some of the topics/ questions, occasionally, get really struggling

Hi Jason,

Go for BAK. If price is a problem, check if there is any second-hand on maybe e-bay. In HK, I think you can only order it through those book stores or online.
