HKIAA Cadet Pilot Programme

Let's start this new thread for anyone interested in learning more about this opportunity

HKIAA Cadet Programme

It costs $800,000

I guess geared at being a proving ground for getting into airlines other than Cathay.

If anyone know any more about this other than what is available on the website, please let us know. Anyone gone through the process and started?

FWIW - I'll likely apply, I've seen that others in the CX wannabe posts say that the procedure is a little simpler than CX.

800,000 dollars with your own money? That's not worth it lah. With 800,000 dollars you can go train with L3 Airline Aviation, better training facilities, better quality, might even have a chance to apply to be British Airways Cadet Pilot.

Are you a HK citizen? Heard that the selection rounds are held in HK. Wonder if they do online as well as I currently live abroad.

L3 has on their website that the integrated ATPL course is 102,500. That's $1,013,000, so it's 200k more expensive, plus you don't get the interviews with three carriers.

I see your point though, is L3 where you want to go?

Yes PR and in HK, I'm sure the initial rounds will be online but not sure.
