I updated my application and still waiting for their reply...and it has been a year and a half.

Can anyone add me to their facebook / telegram / viber study/discussion groups where I could ask study materials from. My username is Hans Eco.

Thank you everyone
I trayed to call there but you dont answer.

Excuse me guys and gals. I heard Cathay change their mode of the initial ab selections. However, I can't find any relevant info in this thread.

Yes I failed last year and re-applied at the end of Nov 2018 and received invitation which held at 10 Dec 2018. There is a bit difference from last year that you would need to take ICAO English test by yourself if you pass the Initial A, before B. It costs 1920HKD paid by yourself as said in the email. It looks like they are keep changing selection process....

BTW does anyone know where can I take the ICAO test online or any tuition class in HK? Many thanks!

Hello wannabes.

A quick question about secondary school grades. I didn't have the opportunity to take Physics in school and my maths was very bad in HKDSE. Is Cathay lenient with school grades? I worked as a mechanic in aircraft maintenance if that helps. Thank you.

Hello, I am planning to apply in this month and would like to join the study group. I did open an account for registration for CX cadet pilot before. However when I was trying to complete it today, I could not find the option for cadet pilot only for second office and first officer. Does everyone have the same problem as mine or is it just me?

I find it intriguing how all the CX pilots are posting warnings, yet you wannabe pilots simply ignore it. Either Hong Kong is really in the shitter when it comes to employment or you all have a deficiency in foresight.

You guys know that you now pay for 50% of the training costs right? The downward spiral continues.

you are aware of COS18 yes? Also don't be fooled during the interview, they will probably lie to you about fleet, bases, staff travel, list goes on.

They are not gonna ask you for money for sure, but what they would do is to stop paying you allowance for the first 3 years. 3 years of HKPA is about 500,000ish HKD, in other words, you are bearing 50% of the cost, comparing to those guys who joined before POS18. Hope it helps.

I failed last August and was told I wasn't going to be reconsidered for another year, just got an invite for Stage 1 on 9/1, but the process has changed, now they do tech quiz + aptitude, then have you pay for their ICAO English proficiency before even getting to Initial B...

do you mean that they invited you without you reapplying after last August?
