I was interested in Cathay's Cadet Pilot Program and I was asking if citizens outside HongKong could apply (since it is said that they used to open the program to all nationalities but now no longer). Here is their reply via email to me (16/09/2013): --- Dear Applicant, Thank you for your enquiry and interest in joining Cathay Pacific as a pilot. For those people who would like to join Cathay Pacific as a pilot, there are 3 entry Second Officer Training Programmes depending on their level of aviation experience: A 55-week Ab-initio programme (i.e. Cadet Pilot Programme) for applicants withlow experience and no ICAO CPL. Permanent HKID card required. A 32-week Advanced Entry programme for applicants who possess an ICAO CPL and in excess of 250hours flight time in certain categories; and A 5-week Transition Training programme for applicants with ICAO ATPL,with a minimum of 1500 hours total time, including 500 hours multi-engine time with a MTOW greater than 2000kg. However, the recruitment of Advanced Entry programme and Transition Training programme is currently suspended until further notice. Therefore, we are not able to advise the application status or the interview schedule to the applicants of those two programmes this year. Best regards, Flight Crew Recruitment Cathay Pacific Airways /ct ---- So in conclusion the Cadet Pilot Program is only open to HK citizen and they are not hiring pilots through Advanced Entry and Transition Training program as well (per 16/09/2013). Is there any update regarding those 3 program? If maybe they open the cadet pilot program to all nationalities again?
