The only thing I felt missing from the booklet is maybe a bit more on meteorology and the weather.

Also you should have some insight on Cathay's fleet, which can be found on their website.

The Compass test is pretty straight forward, tests your ability to multitask I guess. If you drive or play any first person video games that require you to be aware of your surroundings it will be cake.

There is a math section that requires you to be able to do some basic trigonometry and division of big numbers. Other than that, it's pretty straight forward.
How many questions are going to be in Technical MC questions ? Plus do i need to study all of the booklet in order to do well or i can just go through the main points ?

Plus my 1A is in on August 10th, if anyone else sharing the same date, please whatsapp me on 55001359

re: @FlyCX

For stage 1a, you can take a look at Pilot Test

you just need to study the booklet and do the compass test.

The website is about 90% close to the actual test.

No worries, you should be good. Am currently going for 1B on the 26th of July, so trying to get as much studying and reading as I can.

Congrats man, Job well done. Hope you can be on your way to training sooner than later. Also did you already do the flight grading?

As mentioned before, there are 50 multiple choice questions. And yes, you should study the whole booklet. It's only around 60 pages....

Is this pilot test just usefull for 1A or does it help at later stages even ?
And should i go through the booklet provided by Cathay or i can just get everything done from this site ?

Hello Everyone, few questions regarding stage 1A.
Is it a must to use the joystick and rudder in the compass test ?
And is there maths involved ? How many questions in how much time for the maths test ?
