By the way, does anyone know what the computerized based assessments at stage 4 look like? Is it another Cut-e assessment but in more advanced level? Seems there's not too much information about this assessment here.
I am wondering what will be include in stage 3

Depends if you pass or not, for 1A if you fail it, they usually email you back within 24 hours (in most cases). If you pass it expect anywhere within a week I'd say. Between 1A and 1B they gave me roughly 2 weeks.

Could this be psychometric tests and/or ICAO? Never heard that there is a extra stage after Group exercise/flight planning/HR+tech interview.

Hmm did they change the system again? Very interested to know.

They used to do flight grading in stage 4 in the last. Can be psychometric tests or advanced computerized based assessment?
hopefully they will provide more information in email.
Very interest to know as I haven't heard that there is a extra stage after ICAO and medical checks. Seems not much related information about it.

No problem, yeah I think if you have done all your homework you should be fine.

Hopefully you are walking in with some practice with either Skytest and/or Latestpilotjobs on the cut-e.

I'd say you need a least a very basic/preferably good understanding of the 5 chapters they tell you to read. For here they expect you to at least get 70% of the questions right out of 50 which means you need to pass at least 35 of them. Expect 2-3 questions that are not related to the book (i.e. what are the runways in HK airport). Just general pretty straight forward questions.

Good luck and do your best

Hello, this is years late to your thread post. But did you ever end up doing the UNSW aviation interviews?

Hello everyone, happy to be a part of the forum here

A little introduction, I am a 17 y/o Hong Kong-born kid living in Vancouver, Canada at the moment, as soon as I turn 18 in October I will be dropping my application off to CX. I am heavily involved with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, earning my Glider Pilot License and will soon be working toward my Private Pilot Licence through the program here. Other than looking through all the other posts in the forum (I assure you, I've been constantly reading all the threads here), does anyone have any tips for a first time applicant?

Any responses are greatly appreciated

Anyone knows if Kelly Crawford is still with the company? I tried to send her an email but it didnt go through. It says her email address does not exist. Phoned to her extension but her voicemail packed up. Looks like she’s gone. If she’s gone now, who is in charge then?

Hey bud,

I suppose simple things to work on as you're prepping for Cx specifically would be to practice the Cut-e as well as read up on the basic aviation knowledge. As you progress through that and feel like you have a grasp, you can move on to more specific stuff. Knowledge on company will certainly come up through the process so keeping up to date with whats going on will be great too.

Heard she resigned last month, not sure who has taken over for her though.

Here is a break down of the selection process - 2012:

Stage 1
Basic Aviation Knowledge Test
Raven Reasoning Test
Personality Test
HR Interview

Stage 2
Flight Planning
Group Activities
Wombat/COMPASS Test
Final Interview

Stage 3
Medicial Examination
ICAO English Proficiency Test

Stage 4
Flight Grading

Here is a break down of the selection process - 2018

Stage 1 A&B
Pilot Aptitude Test (Cut-e) (This is far more simpler and easier than COMPASS and WOMBAT)
Basic Aviation Knowledge Test
Interview

Stage 2
Group Activities
Final Interview
ICAO English Proficiency Test
Medical Examination

What can they possibly remove in 2020 and beyond? Do they still have a standard?

Is updating anything of the application regarded as re-submitting the application,
so that it will take longer time for the 1A invitation?
