So I submitted my application for AE last saturday Nov 7th and they replied with an invitation on Nov 10th. They gave me cadet program stage 1 for Dec 1st in HK but I can't make it due to school commitments. They followed up by saying they don't have a schedule for later interview dates but will send me an invitation once they get it. Anyone know how long I can expect this next interview date to be? Jan, Feb, 3 months, half a year? Any ideas?

Hi all

Brazilian, CPL/ME/IR, Flight Instructor Licence, ICAO Lvl 5, 280TT, Aeronautics Sciences bachelor degree, Jet Trainer (Similar to european MCC). Do I have any real chances to get an AE opportunity?

I have a perception that Aussies and Europeans (mainly Brittains) are preferred by CX.

Hey Thales,

I have almost the identical qualifications as you but with an HKID. Applied AE last week and they responded me with an invitation to ab - initio cadet 1A. I gave them a call and they told me they were looking for 500 hours + for the AE .

Was unfortunately unsuccessful in Stage 1, and received the '6 month' e-mail. What is the likelihood that active recruitment for AE will be continuing next year, circa April/May?

I know this year, the interim 2015 report stated 340 pilot's for this year, but am not sure where recruitment will sit for next year. Truly hoping I'll have a second opportunity, particularly knowing where I fell short. Thanks in advance.

Just to kill a doubt... all the ways to enter the program (ab-initio, advanced entry, etc) are only availabel for HKID holders?

Joedabro, thx for your info! So +500TT for AE will be very hard!

One of the users here suggested latestpilotjobs.com.

I admit, I was lazy and somewhat time constraint and was assuming going to a pay site will in some way make my life easier.

I would NOT recommend this sit e to ANYONE.

They don't have ONE question that was not found on the forums or the first 3 google search results. Some of the questions are provided by incorrect answers, others have vague yes, no type answers. A lot the questions say they need to be answered with your own experience... but the questions are technical, not experience related.

It seems to me that at least some of the questions were answered by searching forums and literally cutting and pasting the answers from the forums.

Also posted this in another post for reference.

Initial A

This is for those who have already COMPLETED the initial A for Cathay - How well did you have to do (average) to be accepted to Initial B?

Physics?

For those who have completed 1A recently for CPP, are they still asking physics questions? If so, what are some of the harder equations we have to know?

Thanks!

Dunhill,

Congrats on progressing to stage 2!

I'm doing my 1A on 5th Jan. Was wondering if you had any advice, if there is anything in particular I should study, and how well do you have to do to pass to 1B

Thank you!
