Hi guys, just wondering how many flight hours do you get before hitting the apply button for Cathay cadetship?

I'm really struggling between RPL and PPL

Hi Lads! it may not be the most appropriate time to apply for cadet programm, but has anyone received any news form CX recently for any sort of test?
I've applied on 19th Feb (from Germany) and still haven't got any news. Maybe because of the travel restrictions?

Cheers

Anyone who is thinking about signing up the program and expecting to receive some sort of invitation now shouldn't be near the cockpit. Read on the news, and use common sense! Good Grief.

Hey there!
Can anyone tell me what the total cost of the cadet program is. Ive read conflicting answers to this. Some say it is 100% fully sponsored by CX, while others say cadets have to pay a portion of it. All know is that the training costs CX HKD1.2m. So, if anyone can clarify this for me, Id really appreciate it.
Thanks!

With such low hours I can only imagine that, if successful in your application, you will have to do all of the training again, from scratch.....But, as a stepping stone, it still might be worth it. Take a look through all these forums and take some time to work out if CX and Hong Kong will be a good fit for you. Good luck.

Technically, we will have our basic salary fully paid but just the pilot allowance not being paid in 3 years' time. So it's so-called fully sponsored lol

Hi, Would CX be interested in a Ryanair f/o joining as direct entry....either s/o or f/o? Would paying for a type rating before help my chances???

cheers

Half of the Cathay fleet is parked. Many Airlines have already laid off wide body FO and Capts.

I know you are trying to do what is best for you but nobody is hiring now and probably won't be for a long time.
