Hope you and family are doing great. The first time I visited your website, I was quite fascinated with the amount of information available and the best things are your answers. Since then, I have finished my CPL training and if I had some questions on anything to do with aviation I would search it here... Thank you very much Sir.
My question - my friend was telling me that in Cathay, the progression of a pilot is pretty slow and the Second Officer recruitment has started. If you get selected, the hours that you fly in the beginning of your CX life - you cannot log them. I wanted to ask you whether that's true.
Also, will it take me a long time to jump to the First Officer or Captain’s position in Cathay?
Waiting for your early and positive response
(Please help me Sir; I have been job hunting for 14+ months now)
What your friend told you about the progression of the Second Officer in Cathay Pacific Airways is mostly true. At this time when the market is flooded with pilot graduates who are jobless, I wouldn't grumble about the slow promotional aspects of the job.
I have mentioned this before. Grab the opportunity now if you can get through their very stringent selection process!
I wish you all the best.
