Isn't Dragonair CPP only for HK citizens?

Obviously nothing is impossible, but I don't think KA will need to look outside HKG for cadet pilots. The company currently don't need as many pilots as Cathay, nor do they have as many incoming aircraft or route expansions either. I also don't think the company itself has the resources to conduct interviews for expatriate applicants. Unless there is a major exodus of pilots from Dragonair, it is hard to see them resorting to recruiting expatriates for their CPP.

That being said though, a turn in the rumour mill is indicating cadet pilot intake will increase next year.

Your info is incorrect. It's happening right now.

ReverseFlight,

Where do you see that they are accepting Expatriate Cadet Pilots? Their website still states that applicants need to have a permanent HKID.

I meant KA won't need to open their cadetship to people without a permanent HKID.

Before you fall off your chair, I didn't say they are accepting, just conducting interviews. Read the thread carefully.

BTW, what's a Class 1 medical "without restriction" ? Is the need to wear glasses a restriction ?

Thanks for your contribution to this thread.

Are you saying they are conducting interviews with expatriates? On the application, they ask to provide a HKID number before continuing...

ReverseFlight,

I meant "accepting" as accepting applications and not accepting to the program.
