If you speak English, have the right to work in Europe, are under 30, preferably not a female (judging my the very low number of female pilots who joined last year), ATPL exams passed 1st time with maximum 1 retake, first time pass on the CPL and IR, MCC on a jet and not a FNPT2, no or little previous airline experience, then you might (lets say one chance out of 10) get invited for an interview.
If you do not fit into these criteria, just forget it.
Not true, I know a guy who failed his CPL and still got the job with RYR.

Hi guys,

I'm Italian 32 years old with less than 300 hrs of flight.

Right now I'm thinking to spent 6500 for the Ryanair MCC via CAE, just for have one more chance for the Ryanair assestment.

I read about the age limit up to 28 (maybe not limit but prefered), Could someone confirm this?

If this is a certainty, I'm not going to spent 6500 but I can look for a cheap MCC.

Thank a lot

Look for a cheap but also good MCC course anyway. Give a look at FSB Berlin.

Fill in the form and press save. It's the only way to update the CAE website & application.
Unless you've already been approved and the woman in CAE has emailed you directly. Then I'd say email her.

Ryanair Interview & Assessment for captains

Dear fellow pilots,

I'd like to get in touch with a captain who has recently gone through the interview and assessment at Ryanair in order to get some tips.

Thanks for the help!

Alright guys.
There are people who got into Ryanair with a fail on their CPL, or IR, or ATPL exam. There are quite a few female pilots working for Ryanair. There are people who joined and were over 30 at that time.
And .. there are (a few) people who did a FNPT2 MCC.

Now, if you really want to get invited to the interview, or wonder why you do not get called, then the above points give you a fair idea.

Most (but not all) Ryanair Cadets did a jet MCC, most passed first time their CPL and IR, most are males, most are under 30, ...

I hope it is easy enough to understand.

ladies and gents good morning,
I would like to add my personal experience even if i'm not pretending to guess how the recruiter works.
I have been called, in a date quite near so far.
Here comes my stats:
FAA CPL IR ME
JAA CPL IR ME

All written, oral and flight check with no fails.

ATPL done with no fails, AVG marks over 90

MCC done in a very economic way (not for sure at CAE..don't have 6500 to spend for an MCC)

Applied something like 20 days ago.
First contact afer 7 days, date set after 10 more days for a total of up to two weeks of working days.
Rumors says they need pilot RIGHT NOW.
Best of luck to ya all gents

Having worked for RYR for 4 years and endured the BS and lies they spout. I would just tell them you passed all exams and flight tests first time and still, your not even stepping down to their level.

On a more serious note: when I was interviewed, I was just asked about my training and passes. All mine were first time so I'm not sure if they check this or not. Too many good guys not being looked at because of a paperwork exercise.

On the topic of RYR being screwed with crews leaving. Sadly I think they will survive and limp on. This is technically the last summer they must survive before expansion stops which means they can settle down and get some stability. Even if that means getting 20% more FO's and CPTs than required, the end result will be the average hours for everyone will go down. They can do this because it costs them nothing. Anyone joining FR or doing the type rating just now who has signed the BRK contract, I urge you to join REPA Frontpage as well as IALPA, its 15 per month but you will gain much more in the long run if we're able to put a layer of protection between us and the beast. Anyone who think they should be grateful for the opportunity and this doesn't apply to them. Learn from history. RYR skippers now on 60,000e contracts, compared to 100,000k + from 2004 agreement and all allowances, pension, health care are gone. At what point do you stop being grateful? anyway if you don't agree, then time in this company will win you over but you will be fighting to get back what you have now.

Anyway, good luck people, and welcome to RYR

Ryanair pay?

Just two questions

1) Can anyone accurately confirm what a newly qualified Cadet will earn in the the first twelve months of employment?I mean actual take Home pay.

2) What is the likelyhood of a Pilot living in the UK, after training, being based in the UK (and also given their first choice base)?

Cheers!

1. Your at the mercy of the rostering department.

2. Slim to nil but you never know.

RYR Rosters

Does anyone know if these 5/4 and 5/3 rosters are completely fixed or is it possible to request something else, like 10/8 for an example ?

Yes I do with a few years now. Those answers are based on past and current experience. I have never been based in my 1st choice or any of my requested bases but I have seen many people that joined long after me jumping the queue and getting them.

You can make what you like of that

Ryanair pay?

Hi all,

Just to say thanks for all the information from the Pilots who 'actually' work for Ryanair..I was only making sure that anyone who commented knew their stuff and clearly you do!

You know what it can be like on here!!

Best wishes with your careers.

The basing policy has been screwed more this year! Especially if you want a UK base or a base that sees reductions in the winter. They now offer summer only positions in these bases. It just means they have less of a requirement to permanently base you there.

The basing with annual leave are the 2 worst things in FR. Someone asked a senior member of the flight ops department why they don't implement a fair basing policy. I.e. A simple php script that tracks all requests and displays the most senior. The reply was simple "...that costs money!"

It took me 2.5years to get my first choice base, that was with a lot of hassling the girl who overseen the process! command is round the corner and I'm in a base that sees summer only positions so my chances of getting back to my 1st choice in the foreseeable future is slim. I'm not trying to dampen anyone's enthusiasm here but merely write how it is. Eyes wide open!

Ryanair base policy

Hi Mr Bruce,

Would it be posible to be given a UK base and accept a Summer Job/contract only? Or is it more complicated than that.If the former would be possible,would that 'literally'mean no work whatsoever during Winter from RYR?
