CX is not hiring pilots this year, even in 2021

Whatever how experienced you are, you have no chance

Study Group and Venue

Hi guys,

I know it is a great disappointment that the COVID 19 has put the entire programme to a halt. But Cathay will eventually resume the selection and there is nothing better to do than to be well-prepared it. Our study group is currently looking for other like-minded people to be a part of us. We have a venue in the city center to conduct our studies together. Please PM if youíre interested. Come join us! ✈️

Anyone tried to do the ICAO language proficiency test from abroad, or does it have to be at one of the HK-based exam centres suggested?

Welcoming any study groups or advice for the assessment/interview process!

My main focus right now is to build flight time. And for an airline to hire during a pandemic is still quite rare (at least on my side of the globe). So no, it does not bother me. A job is a job and I'll take it as a win if I get into CX.

You do realize P2X is not recognizable internationally right? And if Omicron second or third or fourth generation makes a come back and the border with the world is closed again, how long will it take to build the hours that you think you will want? By the way, friend of mine graduated from College a little over year ago and has been working at the wealth management sector, heís making 50K+ pretty every single month, and now he has the money to train wherever he wants. Does he need to rely on Cathay? Nah. He doesnít.

I share the same thoughts with echons there. May I ask whether you received any selection update from CX? I applied back in late March 2022 with no update so far. My brief background: TT of mid 200 hours with CPL and MECIR. Thanks in advance.

And that, is the definition of cheap labor. No wonder why Cathay has screwed everyone over and still gets it's fans. Disgraceful.

I have a few questions for ya

1) Are you a former KA pilot who gets laid off because of company restructure?
2) Is the flight operation back to where it was at pre pandemic level?
4) How many pilots have they recalled back, Including KA pilots and CX SOs?
3) How long does it take to train a zero hour guy to 250 hr?
4) Why are they relaunching cadet training program now? Are they training them for now or for the future?
5) Why should they look at you when there are heaps of SOs sitting at home counting beans? Or working at a second job if not counting beans
6) Are you aware of the market trend?

No offense but if you canít figure out WHY before asking that question then I think you have proved to the experienced pilots that they are right. The standard couldnít be more worse than ever.
