Anyone have anything to add?

Because airlines not value the difference between an okay pilot that can just about pass a sim and a highly skilled, dedicated professional. As long as the plane flies...
Er, mods, this post has somehow migrated from the BA DEP thread to here... any chance it could be returned or at least deleted from here?!
PS the last paragraph (bold) is not from me!
Thanks...

Replacement of JKI

Soon I will be applying to retake the initial A and it seems apparent on this thread that they've replaced the JKI. Does anyone know what they require you to study now?

Thanks

Hello guys,

I have been reading this thread for a while and I still feel so lost... I still have so much to learn about the process...

I'm planning to send in my application before the end of the year. Anyone else in Australia doing the same?
Is there any study group I could join?
Does anyone have some tips?

Cheers,
Oana

Hi guys, I humbly passed my 1a. What can I rote learn for my flight grading? What is the exact power setting for base? I hear the instructors have really high standards.

Humble,
There is no flight grading anymore but a computer-based test.
I dun know the details of the test.

Hey Humble!

First of all, congrats and well done!
Second, Was your technical MCQ exam based on PHAK theory? If so, was the exam really hard? I am just curious

Just out of curiosity, what did they put in place of flight grading? Always thought that was one of the most important aspect of the selection process, or is this part of CX's cost cutting plan?

Right to Abode vs Land

Hey guys,

I currently have a Right to Land status on my HKID. Would that automatically disqualify from the selection process? As far as I am concerned, RTL is basically ROA minus the right to vote and possible deportation for serious crimes. I still have the right to work/live in HK without a visa.

Thanks!

That's one tricky situation, your best bet is to call Cathay requirement department to clarify the situation before you go ahead with your application, I wish you all the very best and hopefully you will be ok. Good Day
