Cadet pilot Flight Grading

Hi guys,

May I know the total length of flight grading required please?

From departure to arrival to Hong Kong, how many days in total are expected to be spent?
Is there any briefing need to attend prior to that as well?

Thanks,

Differences between AE and Cadet Compass tests

Cant see that this has been addressed specifically in this post, can any AE applicants offer insight? My understanding is that the Compass test for AE is slightly different from the cadet version and consists of the following:

Slalom
Orientation
maths test
flight control (with the rudder and VSI)
Short term memory (headings, alts etc)
a Multi tasking exercise
*physics test

Can anyone confirm if this is correct, im particularly unsure about the physics test.

many thanks

If your English is not fluent, then do not bother applying. English is the international language of aviation and I am disgusted every time I hear an Asiana, China Airlines (and sometimes the occasional Cathay) flight over ATC trying to understand the most simplest of instructions.

Thank you.

Transition Training Sim

Hi Normanton,

I recently got offered an interview in November. Was wondering what information you could give me on the sim session. Is it very involved, emergencies etc, or is it more of a see how you fly and handling sort of thing? Any info on the whole process would be great. Congratulations on getting through as well

Droningek, if you can afford it fly to HK for the initial interview. This will get you an interview providing you have suitable experience. Have had a few friends do it and it makes their 2nd stage easier (a few less things to do during the day than I had)

Need some serious advice

I have recently met a friend (From HK) who has barely completed his ATPL in US this month. He had an interview with CX some years ago and I didn't ask the reason why he couldn't get in afterwards. However he suggested me to complete a CPL before applying to CX. So I need some sincere feedback from those that have more experience than me.

I have a first class medical expiring next year, no license at hand at the moment, but only 10-15 hours more of training before getting my PPL. I am hoping to get a Instrument rating and perhaps multi engine as well. Both time and money are constraints in my situations, however, in your perspectives, would a PPL+IR+ME would be good enough for me to get into the Cadet Program? Or maybe PPL+IR only would be enough for me to try getting in ? Though CX requires no experience for CPP, given my limited resources and the only 1 shot chance, I know lots of other people will work hard to make it through the CPP? If i get a CPL, then of course my ground of competition will be in with all other applications in the AE program, will that significantly lower my chances of enrollment?

Humbly grateful for your time to read this thread and your valuable insights.

vfr17R, Thanks for the feedback. Really appreciate it. I might do that, I dont mind having the interview in HK. Seems like you applied yourself, I would like to know the process you went through, if that fine with you. Thanks again.

Why the hell would you do that? Is it any wonder this profession is in a downward spiral? FFS let CX fly you to Hong Kong. If you guys keep paying your own way to HKG, guess what? That will become the norm. You will be one step closer to CX charging you for training a la P2F. Have just a little bit of pride in our profession. By all means come to HKG, do the interview, but for heaven's sake, do it on CX's dime.

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

How long did you have to wait to be notified about flight grading?
