Yeah, rejection will only be via email and the 'clear out' on the application portal

people keep saying their application is 'deleted' or 'cleared out', but what does that mean, like it doesn't even show up on the portal page?

So the portal, normally you will see your application on the main screen after logged in, with the Cadet Pilot Programme and the 'action' button. In case of unsuccessful application, the cadet pilot programme profile tends to dismissed and there will be 'nothing' on main page. if it make sense

Had my final interview about a week ago. Went on the portal, my application is still here but 'action button' is missing. Is this a bad sign?

Hi Trigonometry, thank you for the information. Could you talk more details like how much allowance do CX provide during the training year? Is it enought for student living or people need to prepare a big of money since its not the full salary.

I wouldn't rely on the allowance CX provide during the training period. depending on which course you're in, for FTA, you'll get allowance from day 1 after you go to australia. for Poly-Phoenix, you'll only get allowance when you're in the US.

The allowance will only be able to get you BASIC living during training. So definitely need some savings for the whole cadet period

Hey congratulations! May I ask, how was the technical interview like and what kinds of questions did they ask?

I'll be doing the technical interview in a couple days and I've been preparing by studying the PHAK chapters (4-7,12) CX provided, but I would like to know more on what else to expect and pepare!

I think it really depends on your background, if you got 0 hours of flying, then the PHAK is definitely have more than enough information for your interview. But if you have flown for couple hours or even done a solo etc, then expect your level of understanding of your flying experience is as good as your book knowledge

Hey, does anyone know if a Lithuanian/UK citizen has the right to work in Hong Kong OR can gain it? As I have looked so much online, I found that your parents may need to originate from Hong Kong etc.. So, is there any hope for me to try and apply for the programme with my citizenships or no?
