Feel free to PM me!

Thanks.

Previous FG fail, anyone in the same boat?

I applied to Cathay for the AE program a few years back, straight out of flight school, passed all stages on the first attempt but failed at Flight Grading. I heard (unofficially) at the time that that this was the end of the road as far as CX were concerned.

On a whim i applied again a few weeks ago and surprisingly i'm now getting a sniff of another interview?!

Has anyone else experienced this? If so, were you made to repeat all stages again or was it straight to Flight Grading?

In the interim i've notched up airline/jet hours, unsure if this has any bearing on the interview path.

Thanks

Go around,

AE has no Flight G anymore, You will do an assessment in a 747 sim for stage 2

No, you will be doing it all again, a guy at mine was in the same boat as you. Reason is the recruitment process for AE has changed quite a lot now supposedly.
Only those that PASSED flight grading but were cut short by the law changes a few years ago got invited to stage 2 straight away.

Since I'm a Professional Musician. I went to a Music Academy for college rather than a regular 4 years University, and I have never done any kind of Science Subjects before especially Physics. Do I still stand a chance to get pass it?
You would be surprised who actually passes these days. Just learn the answers to the questions and you're in.

Hi all,

I was recently given the advice to apply for the advanced entry as a CASA PPL holder. Has anyone had any experience with this?

Its a requirement to have 250 hours and an ICAO CPL. PPL won't cut it.

May I ask if the ones who are invited to stage 1a are applying as a CPP or Advance Entry?

Also, for converting HK CPL, is it a requirement to have APTL written exam done from any ICAO state?

Hi,

Hope your flight grading is going well! are you applying as a cadet?

If so what is the batch number you were given? me and my friends had our grading in july and were assigned CP75 B5 but turns out we're the first ones in the course suggesting that you guys are most likely to be CP75 as well. Tell me as soon as you hear back and best of luck!

Kind Regards,

Aiden

What resources do people here recommend for improving my technical knowledge. I have no flying experience, does anyone know if they will still ask me technical questions?
