Hi guys, I will have 1A on August 30th in the morning. Anyone else have 1A and would like to prepare together? Also for the aptitude test, does it involve math questions? and what are the best way to prepare for it? could anyone give me some suggestion? specifically the math test if there is one for the compass aptitude test?

What are AE and TT courses?

Hi Guys,

Brand new here, have spent the last few days scrolling through the forums. I am HK permanent resident who is about to send off his application for the cathay cadet program. Was just wondering if i could link up with anyone here to go over the interview process and all the material and studying.

my email is [email protected]

Thanks in advanced!

Hello! I am Richard from Hong Kong, studying in Adelaide right now. I would like to pursue a pilot career after returning to Hong Kong (probably CX cadet program). As the application is always competitive, I think it is better and good to gain some flying experience in advance (I have NO experience and knowledge at this moment). I have contacted FTA and its AFTC has a basic familiarisation training course with 10 flying hours.

Anyone tried this program before? What is your opinion of it? Should I acquire some theoretical aviation knowledge before taking the practical training? Or just go directly with no background knowledge? Thanks!

I believe AFTC's Basic Familiarisation Course is excellent immersion to the cadet culture. It takes around 2 weeks to complete, and I barely knew anything about flight when I went for it. They provide not only the hours, but also lessons on theory before and after each flight, providing material for it as well so expect to get on a bit of a book grind when you're there. Albeit a more expensive choice, I thought it was definitely worth it.

Thanks Zachary! What are the cheaper options in Adelaide/Australia?

Hi guys
I am a newbie to this forum and I would like to pursue a pilot career (preferably CX/KA) upon my graduation. Although I am expecting my graduation in the 2018, I would like to see if there is any study group in this forum so that we can study tgt. I think this would be interesting to study together as we can share the difficulties we encounter and these experience would be beneficial for both of us in our application.

If you are interested, please feel free to shot me an email to [email protected]. Thank you and I look forward to seeing your contacts.

A basic understanding of the principle of flying will accelerate your learning. I suggest you to study the controls and the instruments before your training.

Hi Guys

Are here any companions who are also offered the initial 1A interview for SO on 21 Sept in Hong Kong? We can go for a small chat on weekends before the COMPASS test.

Cheers

Hello future CX (or other airline) future pilots!

Newbie here that currently lives in the UK and holds an adult HKID card. Was just wondering and hoping if anyone can tell me that the fact I live in the UK will affect my chances of at least getting to stage 1? (will of course pay for the travel myself)

Also just to make sure do they still supply booklets for preparation for the techinical questions? And would you guys say they give you enough time to be prepared?

Kind regards!

decision making for cadet

Hi Guys

I'm studying in Hong Kong right now and I'm planning to UNSW aviation and prepare myself for Cathay Pacific's cadet.Is that the best option or should I go to the cadet interview with zero flying experience?

cheers

Hi Everyone!

I am a new member here. I am a permanent HK resident and I want to apply for the CX cadet programme. Yet, I am not confident enough and want to be more well prepared.

Is the skytest in the following website useful?
SkyTest® - Preparation Software for DLR Test (Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Swiss, Turkish Airlines, Royal Jordanian, SunExpress, DFS), Cargolux, FEAST (Eurocontrol), Austro Control, Skyguide

Thanks!

Hi Guys,

I am working in Perth right now and I've got an invitation for Initial A selection in Hong Kong on 4th Oct.
Can anyone tell me what is it about and what I should prepare for?
Also, in the email also say that Initial B will be on 5th Oct if being selected.
I am just wondering will the result release so quick?

Cheers
