by the way, nice to meet all you guys ! it is my very first time discussing in pprune hope one day i can be one of the cadet pilots in CX
It's all about mindset mate, you just made yourself think you can't apply/you can't be a Cathay pilot. Be open minded and think out of the box.

When did you take your stage 1a and 1b? And how long after you successfully passed did you get the notification for stage 2?

Thank you

I received the invitation email after 10 days I submitted the application last year September. However, I failed 1a, and I re-submitted the application again about 2 weeks ago, and I still haven't heard back from them....

I am in the same boat and I did my 1a in Mid 2015... failed. Re-submitted last week and still no word. And I just got my CPL.

Congratulations on your CPL. I am still working on my PPL, and hopefully I can get the flight test done in May. I have a bad feeling about not getting an invitation email from them, because there isn't much change from the content of the application form. (Except just more flying hours...) And I wonder for people who already have a basic pilot license, do they have to start from beginning at Adelaide if they get accepted into the cadet program?

Socsbrian - First of all, there is nothing called basic pilot license this kind of thing. I mean, how do you define basic? Recreational? Private Pilot? Commercial Pilot? It's so vague. But to your question, the answer is YES. They will still train you from the ground up even if you have a PPL under your belt, which is kinda depressing, and a waste of time and money. The good side is, you have more experiences than some of those who don't.

varundatta.hk - I don't wanna bum you out but the fact is that they have put AE course on hold and are now focusing on Ab-initio, TT and DEFO. Unless you are willing to downgrade yourself, meaning to go by via Ab-initio I don't think you will hear them back anytime soon. Better to give them a call.

Gonuts - I initially apply for the ab-initio when I had my ppl in 2015. Now that I have my CPL I would have thought I am re- applying for the same program. I don't mind downgrading.

Isn't the ab-intio programme only for those with no CPL?

Hi sorry to ask this again but has just been invited for my initial 1A interview for the CPP. What books/materials would you recommend studying prior to the interview.

Also is anyone else studying for the initial 1A currently and would like to form a study group?
