Hi capt lim, all of requirement i pass but i wear a glass my power is 400. Can i join airasia i hold a cpl with ir and frozen atpl. I should wear a glass only or wear a lasik. Tq captain
Abbas , 21 Mar, 2016
Dear Sir Captain,

I have passed all the requirement to join cadet pilot.
Unfortunately, after apply i got rejected straight away from email.

My SPM was not so good, i waited for 7 years for opportunity like today. Im abit sad because I have tried my best in my degree and even awarded best student in my university. I know my SPM result is bad, but i pass the requirement for degree entry. I tried hard in degree just to become a pilot one day. I got A in Math, B in English and C in Physics for SPM.

When i try to reapply again using dummy info and with better spm score, i dont get email sayin i got rejected. I got the email saying that my application will be considered.

And now i know the problem is my SPM result. Just wondering why does AA has other "unstated" entry requirement?

I dont know what should i do anymore.

Please advise if i still have any chance.

Thank you so much.
