Flight grading

Hi,

I'm wondering if some might be able to give me more info. Does anyone know how long the wait is from passing the medical to being invited for the flight grading in Adelaide? I went for my medical on 22nd September and passed it but still waiting to be called to Adelaide... How long does this whole process take?

Thank you

CPL is not needed for CPP.
Many cadets got it without licenses.
Some CPL holders with HKID still applied CPP, not AE.

Maybe you should apply CPP first if you are well prepared.
Save time and money

Thank you for your advice and I understand that some candidates do make it into the CPP even though they have no licenses at hands. To maximize my chances getting in the CPP of course licenses and rating will be a plus, and also need to do well in the compass test, but other than that, what am I concerning the most is after spending that much money, all I got from CX is a no, sorry you are out. Is there any thing else that I can do to make myself a better candidate in the eyes of examiners during the interview?

Once again thank you for your insights!

You can do a lot to increase your chance
such as get few flying hours, join HKYAA/DACP/AAEP, do some volunteer work.
If you show the passion and attributes in the interview, your chance is quite high.
Focus on packaging your aviation story and learn to think positively and practically.

If you cannot ensure the seat even with CPL, why don't you give a go before you go to get your CPL license.

Hello everybody,

I've been reading through several pages of this Cathay Pacific recruitment, but I am not sure to have found answer to this questions.

Currently I am flying B737 but under 500hrs and I just applied to the AE Scheme.

I just would like to know from some of you:

Does everybody is getting an answer, either positive or negative before the interview?

How long more or less does it takes to get an answer from them?

I know there are lots of applications, but I would just like to have an overview of what is going on more or less.

Thanks a lot for your help and wish you all success.

New to the Forum

Hey all,

My name is Joseph and I'm new to the forum.

I am a 21yo Hong Kong born Canadian, currently living in Toronto. I'm currently sitting at 280 + hours with an Instructor Rating, CPL, Group 1 Instrument and about to write my IATRA this week....

Anyways, I applied to the AE program a couple days ago and I was wondering if you guys know approximately how long it takes to get an invitation for interview.

Don't really want to be the guy who sits here for answers but I really wish I had the time to go through this whole forum from the start lol.

Thanks

Joseph, it took approximately 2 months for me to get a response from Cathay. I have a feeling it depends on when they're planning on doing their interviews in Canada. I may be mistaken but I believe they have certain periods in certain countries during which they do initial interviews.

Hey MIQ, thanks for your reply.

I actually put my initial interview preference to be HK since I'll be there from Christmas time to mid february. I was hoping to get at least the first interview in during this time so I don't waste this ticket going there.

Hopefully I didn't submit my application too late and this works out..

I think your best bet would be to change your applicaion to ab initio. You'll probably not get any replies for ae cuz from what ive heard is that theres an internal requirement for ae candidates to have 500+ hours and a current flying job to be considered. Just call cathay flight recruitment and ask them to change your application for you.
