Yea...Kelly is leaving. But even I work inside, we still don't know who is replacing her. I know we are hiring an AM though.

'Positive change' will never happen here.

I've heard of the range of coverage of the initial A technical question was reduced. For chapter 7 of the PHAK candidates are now required to study 7-1 to 7-19 only, instead of the whole chapter.
Anyone can confirm this?

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
Hi swhy,
I will have my stage 1A on 23 July of this year. it seems that verbal reasoning and "disovering rules and interrelation" is not included in the latestpilotjobs and skytest software.
DO you know any good website that I can go for practice?
thanks so much for your help!

For me, I just used latestpilotjobs made sure I did decent (st the very least) in all the tasks. And read the chapters over and over again. Thatís all I did, and I passed feeling comfortable. Thatís all I can give you. I did also use skytest but I feel LPJ did a better job.

good luck

Hi everyone, this is my first post @ PPRuNe, I've read every thread from 2016 Dec till now, since the interview process has changed a lot, especially in 2017.
I have summarized what everyone was mentioning in the past threads and came up with the semi-full interview process below, however, there are some variants that I could not comprehend. can someone enlighten me?

STAGE 1 - Initial A (invitation usually receive between 1 weeks to 4 months from application submission)
Computer-Based Aptitude Test (90 mins)

Technical Questionnaire (60 mins) <-- some says this one is in 1b?

ICAO English Exam <-- some say ICAO exam @ 1a due to foreign candidate present at the interview !?
STAGE 1 - Initial B (failures will be notify with 48 hours, successful candidates will be notify for STAGE 2 within a week or two)
Initial Interview with HR Personal (45 mins)
STAGE 2 (for successful candidates, one to two month after STAGE 1 - Initial B)
-Group Exercises (60 mins)
Flight Planning (90 mins)

Panel Interview (60 mins)

ICAO English Exam (? mins) <-- most of the threads mention ICAO exam at stage 2, also many threads omitted the existence of the exam (yes, it seems easy one but can anyone tell me when is the exam take place?)

Class 1 Medical (? mins)
STAGE 3
Computer Based Test Flight Grading <-- most of the recent threads say Flight Grading has been canceled OR replaced by some sort of computer-based assessment, but no clear information on it, is this stage even exist?

Not sure if a storm came through and wiped out CX city and it's dragon sister but no email for months for either an initial interview or rejection? Excuse my french but this is just bloody disrespectful to the candidates. Yes I understand we are numerous and we are nothing to them but a number but with NO transparency of when we could expect things, NO information about their recruitment timeline and start dates, I'm sorry but my life is not there to be dragged around like a dog's, and so isn't yours.

For those who are making it through the stages, good on you, may you qualify all the way through. For new applicants, we need to take action and boycott cadet pilot employment. Stop all new applications and withdraw them if you haven't yet had a reply. We need to make them know that we DO have a choice. We ARE capable of finding other jobs. If this is the way they are going to treat potential talent, then let them starve in their own pool of blood, in the pilot shortage that they have created with their own two hands.

Got sent an email for Initial A on 31st July, and they told me to get prepared for Initial B directly after if I pass A. That feels out of the ordinary considering people here usually wait weeks for Initial B?
