nope that is different. I have CPL and multi rating. CX is grouping those over qualified to open up a class to fulfill their need. They never advertise they have that class.

Hi there, what they wanted me to join is CP119 training in FTA, Induction day 31st July and training starts 7th Aug. But I'm more inclined to joing the following one, it is not confirmed yet

Did they mention CP119 is a advance cadet course or the traditional cadet course with 55weeks?

I'm about to do my aptitude test. How many times is an 'acceptable' amount of times you can 'crash' in the missile test (complex control)?

It all depends on who you got for the interview, different capt would ask drastically different questions.

I crashed 4 times, and my friend crashed 5 times, we both passed. So don't worry too much about how many times you can crash, just try your best.

No worries mate. Me and my friends could only track up to about 10 dots, more than that, then itís guessing game. But we all passed.

Fail with ICAO English Test

Hi everyone,

Sorry for my ignorance,

I just conducted my ICAO test few weeks ago and also with medical check, unfortunately I didnít pass it (with ICAO3 and need to practice more in structure part), do I have any chance to retest again or It would not be allowed to proceed with the program and reapply whole interview again?

Yes that's what I heard. Few friends of mine went to Western University to study Aviation. Hongkies. They worked their way up, built hours, never thought about joining the CX program, now they are like flying regional. Better than P2X I guess. That said, my goal is still want to train with L3 Airline Academy. They've got a really good training program, using advanced technologies, and they have a huge Harris group to back them up. I am surprised that CX didn't sign any deal with L3!! Too expensive for them?? Could be. Just hope HK Airlines would resume the program with L3 soon. Anyways.

That's for the technical interview, but the earlier you read the better you understand.

Well that reminds me of Dragon for sure, coz they used to partner with L3, which formerly known as CTC Aviation, to train cadets. After the break up, that partnership just went south. Not sure what happened in between. But yeah, absolutely agree on the quality of the technologies they use.

I have my initial coming up this week and was wondering how you prepared for it (what worked best and what to not worry about too much)? I'm currently looking at fleet, history, and routes but I'm not sure how much detail I need to go into.
Any help would be awesome, thanks again.

If you have taken your chance seriously you would have read the whole thread, and if you DID READ the whole thread you wouldn't keep asking for more again and again. Spoon feeding won't get you too far in your pilot career. I feel so sorry for the contributors who have left the hard earned experiences in the past. You guys just won't learn.

Typical HR question prep will do you fine. Just think a little harder and prepare about questions related to being a pilot (not really knowledge/technical questions, but behavioral questions).
