Starting with the basics...I wonder if PHAK's explanation of lift generation is correct. It has been a lot of debate on this topic, and the one used by PHAK seemed to be proven wrong by NASA. Up to this moment, I find the one considering airflow to be circular motion most accurate and acceptable...How do you guys think?

In terms of having a more realistic expectation/study plan, do you know how in depth the technical interview will go in terms of if they see that you are licensed, will they be asking CPL/ATPL questions?

I spoke with a couple of applicants and they did mention that they expect you to know your PPL material and your aircraft well, just not sure about their expectations of anything beyond that.
Do you have a CPL or ATP? If you don't, then why are you worrying?
If you do, then congrats and welcome to the boat.

Just know your PPL material and the a/c you flew + the a/c you wanna fly with CX well and you'll be good. It not a checkride just a job interview.

I swear to god, if you say the NASA lift thing to a examiner he/she will fail ya!
Just read the PHAK. Don't overcomplicate matters.

I mean, NASA states how PHAK explains lift generation is wrong. And the "circular motion of air" theory of lift is what I find more convincing and scientific.

Anyway, do you mean what I had better do is to just follow PHAK even though some concepts are different from other materials?

I asked the in last month aviation career expo. They said no AE for another year or so. The have to many locals with no time to deal with.

Hello to All !


I will have my 1A on 7th Aug.


I also have the same question as above.


also, I want to confirm if there is any verbal and numerical questions in 1A ? I subscribed Latestpolitjobs.com for the assessment and I don't see there is any verbal and numerical questions involved.


Many Thanks !

1A Verbal and Numerical Questions

Hi All,


I am attending 1A on 7th Aug. and I would like to see if anyone can tell me if there is any verbal questioning and numerical questioning in 1A ?


if there is none in 1A, are they any verbal and numerical questions during the whole process ?


the reason I am asking because I subscribed the assessment from Latestpilotjobs.com and it seems there is no verbal nor numerical questions in their 1A preparation.


thanks !

Cadet Program Questions

Hi everyone,

I've got a few questions related to the cadet program. I'm 21 years old and recently graduated with a diploma in Airport Operations, I'm extremely interested in applying for the cadet program as soon as possible however I need some information first.

1. I'm a Canadian born citizen with no ties to HK or China, is there any way I can apply for an HKID to qualify for the cadet program ?

2. I'm having difficulty differentiating between right of abode and HKID, I'm assuming they go hand in hand ?

3. If I cannot obtain the right of abode prior to application is there any other ways of successfully joining without going through the advanced entry program ?

Thanks kindly,
RLYVR

The company has changed their policy on the type of pilots they use on long haul flights to save costs. It used to be 1 captain, 2 FO's and 1 SO's but now it is 1 Captan, 1 FO and 2 SO's. So they will look at hiring more SO's which would be good initially, however, promotion will take longer due to the fewer spots available for FO's on long haul flights.
