Hi All,

Newbie here. I am intending to apply for the Cathay Cadet Program. I don't want to apply until I am confident that I will pass all exam stages.

On the technical questionnaire, does anyone have a list of questions they typically ask? I have been informed there is a list of roughly 100 questions the technical questionnaire typically circulate through.

Any current online study groups that are open to other members. Keen for a study buddy!

Thanks in advance.

I didn't prepare much for this part of the interview, it is very easy and requires common sense only. There are 4 answers to a question and 3 of the answers are obviously wrong and you can use the process of elimination. I read the book they recommended an hour before the test and passed it easily, nothing to worry about.

Can anyone give me some advice?

What's the best way to approach studying the 5 chapters of the FAA handbook? Note taking would be too extreme and I was wondering if anyone could suggest a way to go through it efficiently.

Would you happen to be applying for Direct Entry Second Officer? Because the two day assessment you mention is not applicable for people applying for the Ab Initio Cadet Program. My group members and I are doing the group exercise, flight planning exercise, and final interview all on 20 Feb, with nothing else the day before or day after.

Hi guys! I'm currently preparing for the cadet program. I wanna know more about the actual process.

According to the cx website, after online application, ICAO English test, computer-based test and technical quiz will be conducted. I

Is aptitude test (numerical reasoning)included or in general what kind of test is included in the computer-based test? Also, around how many question will be asked in the technical quiz?

Thanks a lot and good luck to all candidates here.

Hey everyone, I'm studying the materials for the FAA handbook and I was wondering how other people are approaching it? Notes, some thorough reading? What works best for this content heavy material?

They are desperate. Now everyone with a HKID card and can write the 28 English alphabets will get into the cadet programme.

Oh, they not only have Pre-qualified Cadet for those who have CPL, they also have DESO for those who have CPL/MEIR and ATPL EXAM credits. Both are for HKID Holders, correct?

Anyone know for candidates of these 2 streams, will their allowance be withheld for the first 3 years like the ab-initio cadets?
