CX advance cadet program

Hello everyone! I live in NY and recently got the email from Cathay saying I reach their requirements to the advance cadet program. Have some questions that I concern if I should continue my farther application. Does anyone knows that

-how long is the training for the advance cadet program for HK base (second officer) if being selected?

-how long is the contract commitment? If you feel that CX is not for you and want to leave after you finish training / work 1-2 years later, do you need to pay back any training fee or buy back the contract?

-if ICAO log time can be transfer into FAA log time if I would decide to go back to USA for another pilot job?

thanks in advance!

Chloe,

You will bewa second officer for 5 years. None of that time counts in FAA land. Training in Australia is around 3-6 months and tou will have to pay back a huge amount of money if you leave early.

Chloe,

you mentioned Second officer and also Cadet Program, which one exactly are you referring to. Those are two different program at cathay pacific from what I know. The cadet program are basically for HK Residents who doesn't have no Pilot license (Ab-initios) and thats the folks that need to repay money, which comes out of the salary im told. The SO position however are for CPLMEL holders and if selected its about 8-10 weeks of training in FTA adedaile and don't think you have to repay anything. Leaving the company before upgrading to Jr. FO which could take between 3-5 yrs wouldn't be a sensible thing to do becasue you wouldn't have logged any hours and like pilotchute said, its a no no in FAA Land. All the best

Cheers

How many stages are in this process now?

From Canada and invited to initial A. I assume they will give me another date to fly back to HK for initial B and so on.

Just wanted to see how many stages are in this process now to estimate the expense that will be incurred.
