Hey guys, I have my 1a interview tomorrow at Cathay City

Hey guys, I have my 1a interview tomorrow at Cathay City,

I've been reading the Aviation knowledge booklet over and over. I played with an app called skytest to brush me up for the compass test....


Is there anything else I need to do to be ready? I know it's a bit late to ask

Hi all, long time reader and first time poster.

I have been invited to HK to interview for the AE SO scheme.


I am studying up at the moment and part of that study is looking into Hong Kong as a place to live. While it seems nice, it is obvious that money is important!

Does anyone have an accurate figure of what you might expect to earn as an SO? Some figures include housing allowance, some don't etc etc.

Any clarification is greatly appreciated!

STAGE 1A - MATHS TEST

Question for those who have completed 1A ..

There was a question that asked you to look at the ISA/altitude chart and the question asked you what the altitude was and said give your answer in thousands (e.g. 42) - what I want to know is did you answer '42' or '42000'?

Answers hugely appreciated !

Your question pretty much answers your question...

For those that have done the 1A assesment, how did you find the level of diffuclty for the technical questionare and the compass test?

I am using Skytest at the moment but I am unsure of what to anticipate for the actual interview as Skytest has a HUGE range of difficulty in terms of maths questions. It even asks physics and chemistry questions

Prerequisites Forms

Good afternoon
Has any body received an email containing the HKCAD Prerequisites Forms and the Medical-in-Confidence Form.
I submitted a week ago and I am still waiting for an answer. Does anybody know how long usually takes to get any answer?

JKI

Is the JKI booklet still being issued by CX for pre-interview prep?

The old one dated February 2000?

Thanks.
