Interviews, jobs & sponsorshipDo ya feel lucky, Punk? Well do ya? If so, here's the place to swap the hot gen on who's sponsoring or employing, their selection criteria, and where those oh so elusive first jobs can be spotted in the wild. Watch out for the tumbleweeds...
What always works is a navy-blue or black suit. Black leather classic shoes, but NOT laquered. They must be clean, also the underside. Wear a white or light blue shirt. A red tie, without prints on it.Ever Watched the Presidential debates? They always wear red ties because this makes a person look confident, strong and a "leader" without being "dull". Facial hair is OK for already a while now people. A ringbeard is actually quite distinguished, as long as your beard is trimmed and your haircut is tidy. People who still believe that having facial hair will stand in the way of a job have some catching-up to do, or live in the US. Despegue ps. I have been previously involved in recruiting/selecting for Flight Academies and Airlines.
............................................................ .......................................... hi, i will attend an int shortly with ryanair. could you explain more in details in the forum or here about the sim profile, typical questions asked during the technical int or the most frequent questions asked and some tip that you might feel to share thanks, Capitano
I have to laugh at some of you..!! Cavalier, I assume you have worked for Ryanair before then? Paid in Peanuts????........ Looking at last months pay, er... cleared £3700! Not bad considering I joined with 250 hours originally and I've been there just short of two years now!
Hi Busbar So, you're just now earning enough to pay off the cost of your Type,your enforced six-months(and more) without pay, your lack of a pension,LOL cover,medicals, uniform, food, any potential savings, any potential mortgage,etc,etc.That's real big of FR,eh? Let's have less bragging from you and a bit more reality. regards TDD
Ok, as usual another thread is going off the track of what it was originally about! I've opened a can of worms. TDD - ok whatever, I'm doing ok thanks very much, no bragging just fact. Reality? Well we can all rant and rave about how it used to be in the good old days but it ain't like that anymore. Whether that's thanks to FR or not, get with the times. I don't like it anymore than you do, all this paying for type rating etc.. but that's the way it's going now. I am not trying to personally attack what your saying, I agree in many ways, but FR is not as bad (in my opinion) as some people make out.
Had me in stitches about the ring beards and girlies should keep their beards...it's natural. Getting back to it. Has anyoune got any current Ryanair tips (sensible). I heard they like PERF questions and AGK on your current type (Seneca if from pistin props). Sim is an ILS and they want improvement on each one. Any comments please?
Used to be a Liverpool SID but have now changed to LEEDS SID I Believe. Lots of info on here if you do a search. Its all the usual stuff....... climb out, general handling, track to the NDB, brief for the hold which you wont do. Engine failure straight outbound for a single engine ILS to land. No tricks.
Im confused, I thought there was over a hundred people already checked and waiting to start their type rating. Was told recently that there would be no more sim checks until at least the end of March.Good Luck anyway.
"Was told recently that there would be no more sim checks until at least the end of March".
where did you heard about that? I heard they still looking and recruit Ab initio pilots??? Thanks for your reply

Going for an assessment with Ryanair next week. I finished training nearly 2 years ago and this is my first interview.
Has anyone got any ideas on what questions could come up at the interview? I heard they ask TR guys about there current aircraft. All I have flown was my training aircraft so will I get questions about that? Also heard that air law is worth brushing up on.
Any info on what I could be asked would be much appreciated.
Fair points above, but obviously there will come a time when FR will change the sim profile from Leeds. There was plenty of gen on Liverpool on PPRuNe and then one day, FR switched to Leeds.
Point being there's no benifit in learning a certain 'plate' you might as well try and understand what you are actually looking at, because come the day, they may give you a different airport, and no one likes a curved ball on the day to get you sweating. At the end of the day, procedures may differ, but an ILS is an ILS, just different freqs and inbound courses. However, I'm not knocking a bit 'Heads Up' info.
From what I heard it's a FIWUD (14) dept to the west, apparently you get broken off to the north and don't have to take the westerly bearing to FIWUD. It's a very quick departure, with leveling off in the turn, retracting flaps, brining the speed back, tuning nav aids and getting after t\o cx done, so it might be worth running it in a PC or a real sim to get the brain thinking. Engine failure in the cruise after a bit of airwork and then the procedural ILS to runway 32.
Hello guys, Having a B737 NG TR that will end next march 4th, i'd like to apply as FO for Ryanair although all what is said about it . A friend of mine is flying with em for one year and does not say so bad things! And the fact is that it is almost the only one to hire a lot of pilots in the next future. I was told that many planes are stucked on apron due to lack of crews. Does anyone can tell me more about this, and will they change their mind talking about 100hours on type to apply as FO? would they be less restrictive ?. Cause i cannot afford 10000 uro to pay to fly as FO for 100 hours. Hope you'll give me answers that will help
Jeano.. asked Ryanair that question at their CPH roadshow and they told me you need 100 hours on type. But when you have the hours to contact them and you can get an interview. I guess the requirement is for them to get you online quickly, as you do not need much linetraining before getting released and thus put minimum pressure on their training department.
