Height requirement

According to CX standard the minimum height requirement is 160cm. Is there any chance for applicants who do not meet the requirement? I have a friend who fails to meet it by a few cm. Honest feedback is very much appreciated.

Ps: I have considered the option of Class 1 medical but since it's not a viable option at the moment, I'm looking for other suggestions.

Cheers!

it means that you need to touch the top of the flight control panel, am I right?

Transition Training Programme?

Gonuts,

You say management are looking at re-opening the advanced training course by the end of the year?
Any word on the Transition Training Programme?
I assume if they need pilots they'll be looking at applicants without a permanent HKID Card in the future?

Any info would great,

J-Dub

Hi Gonuts, are there supposed to be any TT cadets starting in October? Also, when do you think the AE cadets will arrive?

Gonuts

Thanks for the reply mate. I'll let my friend know about that.

Btw, are you waiting for the AE? Good Luck on that! I have my stage 2 in late November and if things go as planned I hope to fly with you someday! Cheers!

Cathay Pacific Cadet Pilot Programme

Hi there!

Im trying to apply for the Cathay Pacific Cadet Pilot Program, but it seems like this program me is only for applicants with permanent HKID. Does this mean they don't recruit foreigners anymore?

Ive sent and email to Cathay, they replied : Global recruitment is now suspended until further notice.

Does anyone here know when Cathay will start global recruitment again?

Thanks!

color deficiency

Hi few,

I am not sure about the "Edridge-Green Lantern" it mention on the other thread, but I dont recall they have Blue color, I am not sure if I cannot see it or they were using a different machine (I am red-green deficiency).

I also fail the lantern test at PolyU.

I have received a email saying I failed the final selection, and ask me to reapply in 12 months..?? without saying any reason, the email more like a stage 2 failed email instead of a medical / ICAO stage failed email...I am so confused now.

Curious,

Why would anyone do AE or TT? Once upon a time, I considered it, but I just couldn't justify it. An ATP certificated/licensed pilot would seriously consider being a second officer?

Are you here to bash or look for someone to persuade you back?

Medical exam

really curious about the medical exam, do we have to use our own lenses for the vision test? or would they provide the lenses (just like when you get your prescriptions for glasses)?

What if our glasses is a few years old and it's not correcting our eyesight to the best vision? Will they provide a lens which would best correct your vision during the exam?

Apart from reading the letters/number charts, what else would they test on your eyes?

Many thanks!

I am thinking maybe they have their own lenses (the big thick device to determine the seriousness of your short-sightedness), like the one an optometrist uses when he is getting the prescription for you..

Sorry if I asked a stupid question.

RE: Medical Exam

Always a good idea to bring your own lenses since the requirement is that your vision must be correctable to 20/20.

From my experience with a Canadian Class 1 Medical, they do the basic Snellen eye chart for visual acuity, Ishihara dot test for colorblindness, Some motion eye tracking tests, and pupil dilation with light.

Hope this helps.

That's good advice.

Best of luck to all.
