It took 4 months for me to get any kind of answer from them, so sit tight and wait, there's nothing else you can do but update your application.

I can imagine that they will be dropping the requirements as most of their 3000 hour fo's have left for the desert. I know a few guys that have failed atpls and cpl/ir's and are still working for them.

If you are unlucky enough to work for them make sure you get involved with REPA and join a union. Having come out the other side they have many many faults and its time for change.

Hi everybody, this is my first post here.
Does anybody know what documents will be requested when called to the interview ? Cover letters, ATPL certificates (the 'simple' one, or the one with marks and attempts ?), references, etc. ?
How do you demonstrate you have first passes in CPL, IR, ground studies ?

I don't know how it is in Italy, but in the UK when you take an IR or CPL test, the examiner gives you a bit of paper afterwards. On it, it says "Series 1 - Attempt 1" and "pass" if you have a first time pass. If it says anything else, it's not a first time pass!

And forget dropping the requirement for first time passes in CPL, IR and ATPL subjects. How about looking at guys and girls who have 3000 hours mutli crew who they can fast track to command?

Sorry, but... duuuuhhhhh. (@Ryanair, not the OP).

In Italy the ENAC (Italian CAA) just gives you a sheet that says that you have passed all subjects, not specifying if on first attempt or not.
What do you mean for Series 1 ? In Italy you just have to go and take the 14 exams, what is a series ?

Re Sim on assessment going into logbook, I stuck it mind without a second thought. Doesn't count for much which is why I wasn't worried, but why not. You're in there with a TRE, or some kind of sim instructor after all

Yes,

I had the same. But my confirmation email was 2 or 3 days after the phonecall.

Good luck!

Been waiting 6 months, not holding out much hope as things seem to have slowed quite a lot. 737 deliveries finish this year and I think they have the majority of their aircraft online and crewed. According to Oxford they have placed 30 odd guys this year and I'm betting the waiting list at CAE is every ab initio cadet since the 2011 hiring spree Irritatingly there is no one to call to find cold hard facts on how many are waiting and how many are needed!

I have a question those who already went to the interview. Did you do 737 SIM prior to the assessment? If the answer is no, did you find difficult to fly the aircraft?

I came from a A320 MCC, so I'm worried about my performance if I had to go to a 737 SIM assessment.

Skyblue having done an MCC on a 320 sim also prior to my RYR interview I would say definitely do some sim time on a non fly by wire jet. They handle completely different and have different concepts.
I used a classic 737 sim for my interview prep. Even if u just use flight sim get the 737-800 package for it. When you don't have experience they are very different in my opinion.
