Successful completion of your Second Officer entry program at FTA in Adelaide will qualify you for selection as a Cathay Pacific Second Officer. Induction to Cathay occurs in Hong Kong where you will undergo a conversion course onto your new wide body aircraft. The Cathay conversion will consist of systems and procedures ground training, simulator training, and flight training taking between 3 to 5 months to become a fully qualified crew member.
We have ambitious plans to expand our fleet capacity during the next decade and consequently the expected career progression at Cathay Pacific is reflective of our growth. Cathay Pacific has firm orders for nearly 90 new aircraft, including Airbus 330-300, 350-900, Boeing 777-300ER and 747-8F aircraft.
Safety is paramount at Cathay Pacific. Developing our people to maintain our operational excellence is a commitment we take very seriously. Whether Second Officer, Junior First Officer, First Officer, Senior First Officer or Captain, we believe all our flight crew must be experts in their field.
We pride ourselves on our stringent selection process, our intensive training programmes, and most of all, we are proud that our pilots’ professional work ethic is coveted among our competitors.
