I presume these 2 tests aren't exactly tests you can "revise" for? Aptitude tests and a basic ground exam test?
You can prep for the pilot aptitude test for sure. Go to latestpilotjobs.com, you will see a list of practice tests for different airlines programs, click on the one that is specifically for Cathay and it will show you everything that is involved in the Cut-e. They are 95% similar to the real test if not 100% and that's what made them stand out from other product like Skytest for instance. Keep in mind tho the practice test is not for free, you will have to pay for it. As for the Technical quiz, all you have to do is to study hard on the FAA PHAK. Simple is that.

The technical quiz is based on PPL theory exams right? If I've passed the CAA ground exams I should be good to go after refreshing my knowledge?

I'll take a look at the aptitude tests thanks!

The Tech quiz is based on the FAA Handbook that they sent you along with the invitation email. Read the handbook, read a little bit company info then you should be fine. It's quite easy actually. Nothing to worry about.

Good Luck!

Hi All,

I am filling the application form for Cathay Pacific Cadet Pilot selection.
However, at the Personal information section, there's only second officer, first officer, and simulation Instructor are available for selection.
I know that Cathay only select their second officer from the cadet pilot program, and they accept application throughout the year. Does that mean I have to select the second officer option for my application even though I am applying for Cadet Pilot?

Maybe I am over thinking a bit, but just want to make sure...
Thank you all in advance!
