I did ask during my 1B - and was told that Ka and Cx holds separate programs, and that today was a Cx 1B only. My 1A was May 17th.

Not too helpful, but I haven't heard anything from Ka either but I passed Cx 1A

You do realize this is a thread for CX Cadetship right?

As always, CX Dragon won't give you any feedback if you didn't make it, so you have to figure it out by yourself. One way to do it is to log on your account and see what message you are getting. If it says "Your application is still being processed" that means you are still in the game, if not, it says something like "We cannot process your application within 12 months..."

Thank you for your feedback swhy, I guess I will wait a little longer then. All the best to your CX stage 2!

Thank you for your feedback divergent. Yes, I am aware here is mainly a thread for CX cadetship but i also noticed some of the previous questions here are related to KA too and thus the response rate of this thread is way higher than others, thats why i decided to post my question here and see if I can get some response from others who are applying for CX and KA at the same time.

May I know which test will be in the Cut-E?
I only know rocket test and monitoring test will be in it. What else I missed?

Is this a good one to get for Cut-E Preparation?
Cheers!

Just scroll up for the type of tests they ask. This thread has 372 pages, if you can't conduct your own research how are you going to manage problems that arise in the cockpit?

Also Latestpilot is an unpolished mess. Don't waste your money on it.

I was told today the new recruitment manager is going to be someone from the Emirates Group. What a surprise. Does it mean we are going to see some positive changes in the coming months?

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
