No hours limit with Cathay Cadet.

Its taken you 110 hours to complete PPL?

Time take to complete PPL can affect by many factors,

Ie Weather, how often you fly, etc..................

Just try applying. Only CX would know if you are suitable.

Good day!
Been going through the threads in past few days and many thanks for the useful inputs
I failed the flight grading (basic) back in 2012 and now I am planning to reapply again. I have heard the CX has cut the flight grading but its website stated the otherwise. Is it true ? Many many thanks bin advance and very best of luck to those who got shortlisted

for me, it's quite desperate if candidates who fail this stage can no longer apply for CPP i am currently a year 1 university student majoring in non-engineering subjects and keep studying aviation stuff in spare time

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

Seems they are trying to use a new set of computer test instead of the KA one for the final round. Anyone got an idea how's the new test going to be??

Thanks.

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?
