How To Become An Airline Pilot
Dear Captain Lim, How are you doing? I hope all is well. I send you an e-mail earlier about information regarding the Cathay Pacific Cadet Pilot Program. Anyway, I would like to let you know what happen during my initial test yesterday. I am also suppose to get back from them within 3 weeks, but this morning, I received a call from Cathay asking me to go back for another interview. So I guess I passed my initial test. Now, I don't know what to expect from this interview. I guess I will just have to wait and see. Here's the run down of what happened during Stage 1 initial test yesterday:

How to program and fly the SID and STAR? How to use a Flight Management Computer? What improvements have been made after the Swiss Air tragedy? Can female pilots have successful marriages? Are aptitude tests for selecting pilots the same for all airlines? How do pilots handle the Airbus A330 engine failure? Could this accident have been avoided?

Watch out though, as the speaker on the tape has a very strong English accent. You might want to brush that up if you are from North America or elsewhere. 2. English Grammer Test This is another 100 questions test with everyone in the same room again. You have 40 minutes to complete this test. Again, you are suppose to underline one of the three correct answers. 3. Aptitude Test There are a few parts in the Aptitude Test. a) First part of the test - there are two short parallel lines with a dot in between. The two parallel lines will move left and right at varying speed and distance and you are suppose to use the joy-stick to move to dot and keep the dot as close to the lines as possible. This test will gets more difficult when your scores get higher and if you are not keeping up, your score will drop. You get 3 tries to get an average score. b) In the second test - it is pretty much the same thing but with a twist. Instead

She is very nice and I think the actual substance of the presentation does not really matter that much but it is more of an oral test. But I guess it didn't really matter as long as you know you want to do this. you are suppose to bring the aircraft to a point in the glide path. You are suppose to decide which one of the 8 symbols belong to the missing one. c) In the third test. Having a PPL or some flying experience is an advantage but that does not mean it would guarantee you a place in the program. You will be graded for your reaction time and accuracy. It is an interesting test. you can barely tell the difference. In this test. I felt a little bit overwhelmed by the other candidates as most of them have either their PPL or some flying lessons but I have never flown before.5 seconds. your chances of getting into the airline is just as good!

So that's it for Stage 1 and you will be doing this with 8 other candidates. Anyway. you are going to use the rudder pedal and your joystick to try to keep this cross within this box. the one with the longer wing span is the bad guy. It is a fun experience. You are suppose to align the plane with the runway and bring it down to 50 feet from touch down and at the same time. You will be shown two aircraft with two different wing span. thanks for your help Captain Lim. They want to know that you can actually speak proper English. But you need to do at least some research on your assigned topics before you go into your presentation. you will automatically lose score once things get out of control. You will get 1 test try and 5 real tries. have good leadership qualities.it is pretty much the same thing but with a twist. You get 3 tries. you should have enough time to do it as it only has 10 questions. So it is quite hard as you try to get maximum points while keeping things under control. You will get points according to the speed of your approach (you are suppose to keep your speed as fast as possible before you reach 50 feet as you get higher points for a faster average approach speed) and your angle of alignment. You will do this for a total of 3 times and each time there will be 50 planes to decide which to shoot or not. Yours truly. The lady really only paid attention to me for the first 30 seconds and then she begin to do her own thing and write something down on your application. The computer will try to move the cross away from the box to simulate wind. f) Shoot the bandit. Reasoning Test: There's two section to this test but basically you are being test on the same type of questions.5 seconds to decide to press the green to shoot or red to stop. the difference in the wing span size get smaller each time. you get 3 tries to get an average score. If you did not decide within 1. d) Quick Subtraction . These questions are more difficult but you should have more than enough time to do this. possess the right attitude and aptitude.

Instead of having the computer increasing you score and difficulty. you use your joy-stick and the red and green button for throttle control. reduce the speed to 100 km/h. you will get through. e) In this coordination test. You will get points for the horizontal and vertical errors. Again. This test use the red and green button.you will need to do 50 quick subtraction questions. I look forward to how you would fare in the second stage of the interview. Then you have 40 minutes for 36 questions. You have 5 minutes for the first test. you are suppose to press the red button to reduce your score and difficulty. In the last try. Truths & Myths b) In the second test . the one with the shorter span is the good guy. Presentation: Finally. 5. I will let you know how everything goes for my interview next week.
