The current wait for line training seems to be 3+ months.
With the mayhem going on the last few weeks they rushed 150+ through base training in a couple days, but they still don't have the line trainers so they'll just be queuing at a different point instead

Seems to me like it is not an "auto-reply" type email, one of my friends got the same one yesterday and the text itself was a little different, concerning the same thing, so I figure, a human being had actually gone through my application and I guess they wouldn't waste time if they didn't want to call..
OFC sent them the document they wanted the same day (Last Friday), no feedback except the email saying "Thank you for completing your application"...

Anybody anything?
Thanks!
So a little update - it has been over a month now and still no email, no call...
I'm 29, All ATPL subjects passed at first attempt, average 92%, all skill tests also at first, icao english 6, CPL ME IR , MCC JOC (in simtech with a very good feedback from the instructors- simtech gives you a copy of your progress book which I have also sent to RYR), 230 hours TT, 106 PIC, ongoing FI, I work as an ATPL instructor and speak fluently 5 different languages.. don't know what else (except hours) could they be asking for....

So from what I see it MAY actually be true that they don't like to hire ex-employees (I was a cabin crew between 2011 and 2013)

Slowly getting depressed and thinking of some pay-to-fly line training program..

The FI path is good, respectable way to start your career, as long as you really feel you want to instructor, otherwise don't.
Know people who have instructed for a year or two and eventually got their jet jobs on CRJ and Airbus. In Europe, of course.

If you already worked for them as a cabin crew and know what it is like to work there, why do you want to go back there?

Also why is it so important to get a job on a shiny jet straight away? Why can't you fly general aviation for a while, until something better comes along?

As for the pay to fly thing you mentioned, it would be a very move if you pursue it.

I' ve read a lot about atpl exams attempts and it looks like there's no clear crtieria regarding it. I have three fails, but I've read there are pilots with also 3 fails and got the phone interview and finally made a positive assesment. On the other hand, I can read that you can have at least 1 fail and a minimum average score of 89%, otherwise they will be rejecting your application... So I'm really confused about what they're looking for.

Guys I'd really like to hear from you of how are you guys paying for the TR... I am about to finish the basic training and will be a fresh fATPL, I'd love to work for Ryanair but the 30k TR cost is something that I can't figure out a way to pay for.... I've been paying for my training very gradually with my current monthly salary, which is not huge that's why I'm flying since 2014 and just now I'm managing to get it done.

It is unfortunately not the real cost of the course, you have to pay for everything, eg company ID, uniform, licence transfer, accommodation during and of course you won't get paid. So you have to count 50k instead.
The delay is up to 5 month now between sim and line training, no salary during that time, you're on your own.
Think twice before joining, it is P2F basically, I couldn't afford it, they kicked me out without further notice.

I applied for Ryanair 3 weeks ago. How long does it usually take to get an answer? Any ideas?

You can apply for the APC program with McGinley Aviation.

No you cant... Unless you are lotto winner!

APC generally applies only to people from eastern Europe and you are lucky if you get selected. So far only handful of people got it

The one you are talking about is via pre-selected schools. The one I am talking about is open to everybody but it is clearly stated that only 10% of the next recruitment will be done via the APC program.

Same thing for me, no news at the moment, I have been told that it usually takes between 2 and 4 weeks to get the call...

For me it took 1 year and 2 months, but someone I did flight training with was called after a few months. So there is no 'usually' for this haha

I had to wait 6/7 months and eventually was called for the cadet graduate programme. Where you work in tech services for 12 months before you do the type rating.

It's impossible to know what the criteria they go for. if you hear nothing after 6 months I recommend the graduate programme if you hold a degree of any kind.

Hang tough it's a cruel industry

Anyone invited by CAE lately for an interview by phone? I have received the confirmation that my application was complete at the 28st of August, after the e-mail with the request to upload a flight school report. Nothing heard since then...

Same thing happened to me.
I took the chance and wrote them an email asking them to confirm if my uploads were now as they wanted.
The next day I got an email saying "Thank you for completing your application"
1 hour later I got the email from CAE about the phone call.

Thank you Martin. Hope your assessment was succesful. One final question; when have you first uploaded any documents? In other words, what was the date of your initial application?
