Hi Fancy Navigator,
I start my Induction on the 11th of Dec at East Mids, break for Xmas and then out to CAE on the 1st of Jan to start the TR.
So far Ryanair have been prompt, friendly and provided all information, contract, joining instructions etc..... I have emailed them a couple of times with questions and both times have had very prompt responses.
Will let you know how it goes!!
All the best to those with assessments coming up.
Dan

Can anyone tell me if they have had to pay for the assesment at Ryanair, I to have an assessment coming up and they want to charge me for it? I just thought that this practice had stopped some time ago?

727. I did'nt pay for assessment either, I was invited as a result of attending their recruitment day in August, however the other eleven, all via CAE, did !


Tablet. I think people may be allocated earlier TR slots due to cancellations, its probably easier to fill cancellations from the last batch of interviewees than re-schedule ones already in the system! However if you want an earlier slot why not give them a ring, someone could have cancelled just this morning

So.. I just got a call from Scandinavian Aviation Academy, and I am going to attend in a pre assessment day, the 19th November at SAS Flight Academy in Stockholm. It only took me 2 weeks to get an answer .

Is there anyone that have experience from this?

It seems like we will get some ATPL questions and also a english test, after that it will be a interview.

What type of ATPL questions can I expect?

Cheers

Hi,

I've been waiting 10 months before being called by CAE. Some others waited only a few weeks.

And yes, they're hiring intensively.

Good luck

Thumbs up Ryanair Assessment

Hi all,

I had the assessment at East Mids yesterday thurs 16th. I went in sim at 10 and interview at 12. Had an email waiting for me when I got home to essex and IT SAID I PASSED AND HAVE GOT THE JOB. Aaaaaaaaahhhh. Scarey as first job and only 21!!!!! 203hrs TT. Start CAE t/r 1st Jan. Cant wait. If anyone is up 4 assessment then you can PM me. Biggest tip, Fly the profiles on ms flight sim using the wilco 737-300 set at 40,000kg and just try to ignor N1 instead of EPR settings.

Regards,

Post Ryanair Assessment

Hiya,

The answer is yes, It is extremely similar. Also there is an ADF needle on the actuall HSI so it maked tracking very easy as you can put the CDI on the required TRK. http://www.airliners.net/open.file/711494/L/
This link shows a 732 very similar. You have 2 course selectors on the mcp, one for both sides, 1 hdg sel which moves both bugs, and the speed window which moves the orange bug on the ASI. Also you use the mcp alt window so you get alt alert +- 1000ft.
Hope that helps

Actually these are more accurate as they show the red ADF needle on the HSI and the correct spherical ADI as used.

After checking the posting age of some of the successful candidates, has anyone the wrong side of 30 been successful or even got as far as the assessment days? No, I thought not

Good luck to all the 'lucky' candidates!
