Cadet Pilot Requirements

Cathay Dragon's cadets are required to pass a rigorous, multi-stage selection process that’s designed to ensure that only the most suitable candidates progress to flying training.

The process consists of interviews, medical examinations, computer aptitude tests, and oral and written English tests.

To be considered for selection, you must hold a Hong Kong Permanent Identity Card and meet the following requirements:

  • Excellent command of English, both oral and written
  • Good command of Chinese is an added advantage
  • Medically fit, including eye-sight
  • Minimum educational standard: completed secondary school with good passes in English Language, Physics and Mathematics, or a degree in any discipline (science subjects preferred)
  • 18 years of age or older

 

While flying experience is not required, a passion for aviation is essential.

Successful candidates will be offered training sponsorship for the Cadet Pilot Programme, which includes training tuition and travel, meals and accommodation during overseas training.
