how did you guys deal with references?

Hey, guys I'm a new here.

I am planning to apply CX cadet end of this year. and I just have a look application form and they require a couple of references.

among you guys who passed screening of resume, to whom you guys request a reference? are there a particular form to submit apart from the application?
and also, there is a column CX recommendation from someone. is this a mandatory to fill in?

all the best for you guys. thanks

Hi everyone!

For those who are preparing for initial 1A, may I know if you are using latest pilot's cut-e package for practice? Does the package match what will be assessed in the aptitude test? I just purchased Skytest a few months ago and not sure if it is still useful for cut-e...

I think latestpilot is almost the same as Cathay one but not sure if there's still memory test.

I am preparing for 1A as well.

good luck to you too..
regarding to your question, I would say lastest pilot is most similar to the cut-E test according to the feedback.
but skytest is also a good website to practice.

Thanks for your feedback! Actually I find out that subscriptions to different periods (1/3/6 months or 1 year) have different tests included. Do you know which tests CX is using?

I should have subscribed to Cut-E

Hi all,

I'm currently preparing for the cadet program, and planning to apply before the end of the year. Does anyone want to form a study group (or already have one) ?

I prefer meet in person regularly, but if you are not comfort with that we can still share information though WhatsApp.

Contact me +852 9255 7009 if you are interested, lets work hard tgt ��

Hi guys, I am new to here and I have just applied for CPP yesterday. Finger-crossed and hoping for the best. :P

Are there any study groups here (on WhatsApp or telegram what so ever)? See if we can exchange our idea/infos/updates etc.

Are you people all completely nuts. Are you watching the shitstorm in the harbour?

DO NOT WASTE YOUR LIFE WITH CATHAY PACIFIC. THEY WILL SCREW YOU.

For the love of God, do some frigging research.

I know you pilots there are not happy with the company. But what else can people who love flying to choose? Maybe HKA, and the upcoming HKE. But safety compliance and some other issues might stop you from there.

Passion can make you passing through tr challenges. Just the same in other industries, companies. There are politics and “those stuff” in every company. And i dont see it is a waste of time of CPA

XFR8 - Don't waste your time, you're not gonna change a thing. It doesn't matter what the company says or does, they will still throw themselves out into the storm, because deep down in their souls, they knew that this is the most economical way to get what they want. Unless, they find a better deal, or they find another way to claim a dual citizenship, these people won't go away. Don't you get it?

Coming from a classical music background, with the privileges of being a Chinese American, I can honestly say to those folks in Hong Kong, you have my sympathy. When opportunities are limited, while competition persists, you don't get to choose who you would want to work for, except changing professions. That's the struggle. It's not only for pilots, it's basically for every profession in Hong Kong, especially if you are musicians, artists, athletes, singers, actors so on and so forth. That's Hong Kong.
