The Earth Shattering Announcement

AirAsia Social Media team

By AirAsia Social Media team

Finally, the blog team has come back to the blogsophere with the earth shattering announcement! We promised you something shocking and we like the guesses that we have had so far.

First things first, there will not be the lucky ten anymore. We are here to announce that all who have been shortlisted will get their shot at living their dreams. Tell us, how do we choose the ten? We faced the same dilemma and went back to the drawing board, pleaded with the pilots and we are here to say that all who have made it, be prepared this June. Yes, its that soon. This coming June, be prepared to get your shot at living your dreams.

We look to publish more details as we move along on the arrangements and exact details of the momentous day which will be happening right here in our own AirAsia Academy. No more complaining, no more saying that we are not being fair. We have opened the gates, the rest of the running is left to you. We bid all the successful candidates so far good luck and all the best in chasing your dreams!

To those still waiting, we have five more slots. Yes, we are now revealing that there are only five more slots to fill. Stay tuned to see the final five who will be joining the thirty who will be one step closer to touching the skies. You heard it first on the AirAsia Blog where dreams come true!

  • Kong Sun

    air asia blog team,

    when will the 5 candidates know that they are the lucky ones?

    thanks..

  • AirAsia Blog Team

    Is Kong Sun the only one paying attention to details? Sigh. Yes, we are looking for another 4. Can’t say when they will be published. But it will be soon. To the chosen ones, go scream your heads off and party on. The dream lives on.

  • Kong Sun

    No time to scream and party off. Must get ourselves ready for the exam by studying to prepare for the exams already.

  • Daphne Siew Li

  • Low

    Dear Mr Derek,

    That would be good news for all of us. I hope it would be set on a non-weekend or after mid-June. I’ve got some part-time job on weekends (for the 1st 2 weeks of June), some event work to add some dough and I can only take leave for my permanent job. Else can we have the information earlier so I can save that week off for you guys?

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    Yang

  • Kong Sun

    Well I was hoping it will not be on the 20th of June, as I have a marching competition to win this year.

    If it is really on that day, then I would have to as another commander to replace me then.

  • Wan Siong

    Great news!
    Haha…
    Now at least I have one thing less to worry about and focus on the upcoming exams and interview in June.
    By the way, I was wondering if the 35 people will be judged differently from the February-March 2009 opening or will it be together?
    Can’t wait to get my hands on more info about my future!
    =)

  • Yee

    Wow… What a big news to me… Just got back from Bali today… Thanks team and congrats to all shortlisted candidates.. Lets work hard and place our step closer to our dream… Cheer

  • Weng Hooi

    Dear Blogteam,
    I have an idea but I’m not sure whether it works or not. I personally think that no matter how there will be 10 anyone of us get shortlisted. So, the rest of 25 unsuccessful participants I hope that their profile will keep in view in the future. So the next time when the company’s going to have another recruitment for this cadet program for those unsuccessful participant they also can have the priority to sit for the test first. Of course, they might be tested in a different way and its up to the company discretion in order to be fair to other. This is because I think that we have strive so hard for what.We just want to achieve our dream and do something that we like to do for the rest of our life.People from different working background they wish to fulfill their childhood dream to be a pilot one day. Neither do I.Maybe, this is very silly cause in the corporate world it is that cruel. Anyway, I just voice out what I think I should say. Well, I believe in AirAsia everything is possible and nothing is truly impossible right, Derek?haha…Anyway, if I’m wrong please do let me know because I hope to do it better and strive for the best..=)

  • Rahamat Tulla

    congratulations to those who made it :)

  • Kong Sun

    Dear blog team, I would like to ask what will be the diffrences between this blog competition and normal for cadet pilot besides the tour at AirAsia Academy?

  • Kong Sun

    Morning blog team, I am wondering out of the 35shortlisted candidates, how many will be given a chance for the cadet pilot programme?

  • Chee Keong

    hahaha….
    OMG…
    thanks Derek and everyone in Air Asia..
    wohoo….

    the tour must be fun!!!
    anyway, lets start studying!!!!!

    Regards,
    CK

  • Hare

  • Nicholas

    hello AirAsia, listen here, i hereby make a huge suggestion to you, why not u add one more motto : NOW EVERYONE CAN DREAMS COME TRUE !!!
    omg, AirAsia is so kind.. Im going to cry now, because ANOTHER airline pushed me away, but AirAsia saved me ! im going to cry.. sob sob,so touching…
    ANOTHER airline always so numb, no feeling, kinda no mercy, like a deadman, Thank God, my saviour, AirAsia jump out from the book, n make changes to benefit all, not disappointing all.. You r so good…
    THIS IS THE 1ST TIME I HEARD BIG COMPANY MAKE CHANGES, WHICH WILL MAKE ALL THING KELAM KABUT (BECAUSE SUDDENLY CHANGE),FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE YOUNG GENERATION ! We need to consider how hard AirAsia could make this decision, because they already publish into newpaper about the blog competition procedure, BUT YOU DUN CARE ! because you love us, the future pilots, you cannot tahan seeing ANYONE of us disappointed n walk away.. I KNOW YOU LOVE US !
    Really thankful.. touchwood if i failed in the selection, i will still be thankful to you ! because u teached me wat is LOVE and MERCY ! OMG, im really going to cry…
    for OTHER company, please learn from AirAsia, this is why they are so successful.. they added LOVE into their element of success, instead of money only.

    AIR ASIA – Now everyone can fly + Now everyone dreams come true

    Thank you

    From
    Nicholas, No.17 candidate.

  • AirAsia Blog Team

    Hi Nicholas, you’re words mean so much to the corporate blogger. Thanks. All the best. Obviously not everyone will be a pilot but remember and use this to inspire all of you that you will not and should not give up your dreams. We love all of you. Have come to know a bit of you through your blogposts but it truly tears us apart that we are unable to assist everyone. We hoped that the published posts would be inspiration enough to the rest. Never take no for an answer and fight for your own dreams even if it is not to be a pilot. Life is a journey and an endless sea of discovery. Ships are safe in harbours, but that is not why ships are built for. Set forth, sail, discover and believe.

  • Edwin

    Thank you Air Asia! Without you none of this would have happened.

  • Kien Fui

    ya… I have to thanks airasia anyway even if my blog is not shortlisted. I really learnt a lot through this blog competition. I know how should I fight for my dream and, most importantly, not to give up easily. I know someday I will be there!!! I believe……

    Always dream to fly….
