To be honest all the "notes" that youd need for preparation can be found/ bought easily.

New Advanced Entry Requirements

I noticed the website states 250 hours for advanced entry, but I received the following from Cathay stating 500 hours. Also, would having an IR then over qualify you or is it not an issue?

Cadet Pilot Programme - (55 week course) - minimum entry requirements
Must hold a Hong Kong Permanent Identity Card
Minimum 18 years of age
Successful completion of secondary school with good passes in Maths & Science or a Degree/Diploma in any discipline or all ATPL Theory Subjects
Fluent spoken & written English
Work experience commensurate with age
Genuine interest in aviation
The minimum height of a Cadet Pilot applicant for consideration is 157.5cm.


Second Officer Advanced Entry Programme - (30 week course) - minimum entry requirements
An ICAO Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) (obtained without exemptions or conversions)
Minimum of 500 hours total time with 15 hours flight time gained over the past 6 months
Experience commensurate with age
Hold a current Class One Medical
Fluent spoken & written English
Must meet flight deck reach requirements


Second Officer Transition Training Programme - (6 week course) - minimum entry requirements
An ICAO Airline Transport Pilot's Licence (ATPL) (obtained without exemptions or conversions)
Hold a Valid Multi-Engine Instrument Rating
2000 hours fixed wing with a minimum of 500 hours in a Piston Twin with a MTOW greater than 2000 KG
Experience commensurate with age
A current Class One Medical
Fluent spoken & written English
Must meet flight deck reach requirements
Preference will be given to pilots with more than 500 hours experience on certified multi crew pressurized, turbine powered transport aircraft greater than 5700 kg.

If there are any South Africans in this programme or who are flying for Cathay (be it SO, FO, captain), would you please be so kind to PM me. I would just like to ask a few questions.

Thanks in advance

Hi guys! I am a newbie here talking about cathay pacific. Just wondering how do they classify you if you hold the ATPL frozen ( with ME+IR, CPL and MCC ) and 250 hours of total flight time.

Do you have to pay the course or is it a sponsorship?

If you actually success and go into the cadet programme, once you have achieved all the requirements ( supposing you'll do ) in there, will you join the cia as a second officer with future options of being promoted as first / captain...?

Thanks you very much for your attention.

I think there's a huge difference between the real LIFE and what you can read about their ideal training schedule on their OWN WEBSITE... what is more, i am pretty sure that you have read information that diverges as you reach their company and you notice its not like you imagined. ( if that makes sense ).

Anyway, thanks for the arrogance

Nah they wont disqualify you for ab initio even if you meet the minimum AE requirements, but true that they would if you dont have a HKID.

Immigration Alert

There are Permanent HKID holders available for interview, possibly suitable candidates, but CX, without proper explanation, have declined to invite for interview.
