So you want to be a Pilot?

Being a Cathay Pacific Pilot is more than a job, it’s the start of a long and fulfilling career with one of the world’s proudest and most respected airlines.

Cathay Pacific recruits Second Officers through three different programmes: the Cadet Pilot, Advanced Entry, and Transition Trainee Programmes. To be considered for the Cadet Pilot programme you don’t need actual flight experience, but you definitely need to meet certain requirements, including having a passion for flying, extremely high personal and professional standards, a commitment to your team and hard work, and the right of abode in Hong Kong. This programme was designed to give individuals with no access to start a flying career in general aviation the opportunity to pursue their dream career. Not everyone makes it. Those who do, give their careers wings.

The Advanced Entry and Transition Training programmes cater for CPL and ATPL holders respectively with differing flight time requirements. Both these programmes are open to international applications.
