Be very careful with Parc. Don't trust them as far as you could throw them. I did my MCC there and they (the instructors) fed me all sorts of Bull about potential sim rides and the majority of students have 20hrs on their sim prior to the Ryan Air Check.
One of their guys owns part of the sim, so it is a pocket lining exercise. All you need to be able to do is a SID, ILS and a few emergencies, maybe a hold. 20hrs my arse.
In fact, pay for a TR with no job at the end (happened to a mate of mine who paid for their TR 737), my arse. They claim to place 100% of their TR Grads. Phaww! what's that smell?

If you play the game of paying for it, be prepared to loose it. Do it the old fashioned way and instruct first, than the natural progression of TP. Why is everyone so keen to go straight to Jets and engage the Auto-pilot?
Enjoy those years working your way up the ladder. There are plenty of years to sit fat and happy watching a computer at work, so why spend another 25k getting there, or has FO changed to MUG these days.

Let me have it!!!!

Ryanair Sim Prep

Hi there
i was wondering if anyone can tell me where to find a sim to prepare for FR Sim Assesment?

Dublin one is no longer used ...so maybe anyone has a different idea?

Is there a chance to use the one in EMA ?

Cheers

There's a 200 sim at 'realsimulation.co.uk' approx 1 1/2 hrs north of EMA
- by car that is!
The people there seem to do a good job preparing candidates for Ryan.

Good Luck.

A couple of Q's

Hi guys been reading this post with interest and was wondering if any of the luck could answer a few questions I have.

How long was it between you submitting your application through CAE and receiving a phone call for an interview. Have submitted about three weeks ago and still no news, although I do suspect that over the holiday season not much will be done.

Do hours have a bearing on how fast you are called up e.g I have 1300 hours with plenty of charter airline experience?

Any help or tips of advice most appreciated.

Regards

Hi

Does anyone know when you actually start getting PAID ?

Is it when you start line training or when you are cleared to line?

ei dudes! I have the interview on january, but I have some questions about it!
I know that the sim check is in Luton, but what charts do they use, Jeppesen, Atlas, the Aip??? how is the weather, i mean, wind? clouds? In the ndb app how is the visibility?? do you see the rwy on the minimuns or before?

In the technical assessment I know that they ask about the last airplane Ive flown, but for example the last multi engine I flew was a Seneca two months ago, but since then, Ive done a lot of single engine hours working, so what should I study, the Seneca or the SE??

And, to conclude, what kind of questiones do the ask in the interview?? Please tell me what they asked you exactly because Ive never done any interview before so I dont know how to start preparing it...


Thank you very much

I am a First Officer in Ryanair and here is exactly how I am being payed in the first 12 months:

Type rating (4-6 WEEKS):

No pay

You then wait 2-4 weeks for base training without pay. After base training you are on the training contract basic rate for 6 months. This is an annual rate of 8700 pounds. However, you do not start getting payed this until after line training. Line training takes 2-3 months so you are therefore only payed on this rate for 3-4 months. Sounds complicated? It is purposely so.Not only that, but the company reduces this initial rate by 1000 pounds every year or so without notice. Next year you might therefore expect the rate to be 7700 pounds.

So, from the start of type rating until conclusion of line training you will only have earned about 750 pounds (half sector pay after safety pilot release and no basic salary yet).

About 3.5 months now remain until you finish your training contract. On the annual rate of 8700 (remember this will reduce eventually) you will earn 2530 basic in this time. Also, you will earn 2800 sector pay.

To sum up so far:

Day 1 to completion of line check ( 4 months) = 750 pounds

Line check to end of training contract (3.5 months) = 5330 pounds

Total after 7.5 months with the company = 6080 pounds.

It will now have been 6 months since base check. You will now go on the basic second officer terms. This amounts to a basic annual rate of 14000 pounds and half sector pay for a further 6 months.

In these 6 months you will therefore earn 7000 pounds basic and about 4800 pounds sector pay. This basic rate is also being reduced annually without notice.

Ok, here are the final figures (before tax) for the first 12 months after the base check:

Basic pay: 9530 pounds

Sector pay: 8350 pounds

Total: 17880 Pounds.

You can expect to remain on second officer pay scale for 18 months after line check. This will probably increase to a greater time period as time goes by.

737 200 sim sharing for ryaniar selection

Hi. To any of you guys with an impending selection day at ryanair. I am arranging a sim detail, probably at yorkshire simulation sometime in early feb. My selection is on 13th Feb. It costs 259 per hour. Do any of you want to pair up with me? We pay for an hour each and get the benefit of an hour's non handling time effectively for free? Can you post your response on this forum please. Cheers

fish How did you fund the rating.

To those that have managed to get through the assesment which bank is very familier with this scheme or which local HSBC is good to talk to around london. Does ryanair give you a contract letter you can take to the bank.

Question Ryanair new English test?

I've heard that is now part of Ryanair's screening a tough English test made in a University near East Midlands. Can anyone confirm that information ?
