Angel CX DEC Now Hiring outside HKG Base

Looks like CX is hiring DEC for bases other than HKG
But will be placed on the freighter fleet for atleast 3 years

AKA Rapid Command

Look like the pilot shortage has hit home

More info and application on their website

Cathay Pacific - Careers : Careers Home

I never thought I would see the day when CX would hire DEC's

Sorry guys
where did you read about this opening
In the CX website is clearly stated "we are only recruiting second officers"
and i couldn't find anything else.

It was there on the CX website in the earlier when i published this post .
They seemed to have removed it

Requirements for Captains was 6000 total with 3000 Jet PIC international ops

Would be assigned to the Freighter fleet for atleast 3 years before you could bid for the passenger fleet

Preference for 747 type rated and Widebody PIC

A mistake by IT, symptomatic of the cuts made by the mill-owners. CX crew even have trouble accessing their rosters from the system, and I won't go into the double-taxation shambles which is happening now.
