Government Flying Service (HKGFS) Cadet Pilot

Hello all.
Anyone here applied for the GFS Cadet Pilot earlier this year?
It's deadline was 6 Mar 2015. I am wondering anyone here is waiting like me. 3 months down, still got no news from them (or if anyone got some insider news about their recruitment schedule this year ?)
Many thanks!!

Did anyone get anything in the mail? I applied months ago, but I'm not sure if they mail anything overseas.

GFS cadet medical requirement

Hi there,

Do everyone possibly know if the GFS cadet pilot program accepts candidate that does not pass HK medical class 1? I have a lazy eye (uncorrected) so I am curious if they let candidates that require additional medical flight test to get HK Class 1 medical for training or not.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers.

greatal I think GFS needs class 1 medical for the license. Did you try the medical check before?

Hi Elven,

I checked recently that my AME said if i were to hand in the results, it is likely to be rejected for HKCAD class 1 medical. That's why i wonder if the cadet program is okay with taking substandard candidate in medical standards.

Do you possibly meet any GFS pilots that are substandard candidate or monocular candidates?

Hi Elven,

I checked my condition with an AME and was told by him that my right eye is likely not going to pass Class 1.

So the important question is that if GFS will be fine accepting a substandard candidate (those who can pass class 1 only after the medical flight test). I am really curious if this works on GFS or not.

Cheers.

greatal,
The GFS requirement is more stringent than a Class 1 medical. To be fair, when there are so candidates many with the required standard, they have no need to accept those who don't.
I hope that you are able to find a fulfilling alternative.

If you can't get a class 1, I guess so you shouldn't been accept for the GFS or even CX or dragon. If you really curious why don't you ask GFS directly? Maybe it is another way out, rather than just guessing here. Or maybe you can seek more advice from different AME to get the medical done?
