JKI

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

The old one dated February 2000?

Thanks.

I was just wondering if anyone has finished 1b last week and still waiting for the result? as the saying goes, "no news is good news", hope those of us who are still waiting, have passed 1b and allocated into the same group interview

Hi guys,

Currently studying for my initial stage of the application process and am looking into apps/software to help me prepare properly. Have noticed that there are several different ones out there and was wondering if anyone has any experience or knowledge as to which is the best?

to be honest, I don't think you need any sort of practice software for cx initial tests, they are not too difficult at all.

Some of my friends did skytest, and they have got passed it.

In my opinion, you better start studying the company background, flight school background and some technical knowledge (level is directly proportional to your aviation background) in advance

Cathay Pacific Cadet Pilot Programme

For those who have read posts from 2-3 years ago. Several highlighted time to JFO and commands would increase and would take possibly 15 years. 2.5 years later. JFO courses on the airbus is now 3 years. Command courses are increasing and with the increasing airframe deliveries as well as 65 year old retirements (rumour has it that it can go to 67 at some point)
By economies of scale and time and place, those who did join then got on the right wave.

Hi Beech58, thats great news mate. May I ask when you applied ? bit of a shame they sprung it up on you. Thats why I have already started preparing in the hope I may get an interview soon.

As for the reasoning test, I believe its based on the Ravens advanced matrices. If you google this you'll get an idea of what its about.

Cheers and good luck! keep us posted!

Maths test or not?

I am going through the advanced entry channels and the email I received says I will be doing the abstract reasoning test, general interview and technical multiple choice. No mention of maths test, Im hoping I dont have to do one as I am at 1900 hours?

Thanks :-)

AE

Has anyone done the 1a/1b AA test recently?

I am studying the maths/physics questions on latest pilots but I am not sure how much to study in terms of question difficulty.

I have heard from some that the questions are similar to easy mode on latest pilots. Any input would be appreciated!

I am studying the maths
Focusing on maths would be a good idea.

You'll need it to figure out how you will survive financially in one of the most expensive cities in the world with rampant inflation on a woefully inadequate pay package.
