why?

I'm wondering why it's so hard to even get an interview for Ryanair.
Will it perhaps help to start another MCC course with CAE?
It would certainly benefit my flying skills but will it also increase my chances?

How are the pilots usually notified if you got the job or not?

If yes, they call you?
and if no, they send you an email?

Thanks

Hi,

This afternoon, I received a phone call with a positive answer concerning my assessment on 21 March.

I start my intro on 7th of May in EMA and my TR on 21st of May in Amsterdam, anyone else?

Good luck to everyone going to an assessment or waiting for an answer!

Hello folks,

i am thinking to apply for a type with Ryanair next may.
How long do you normally wait before receiving the "infamous" telephone call?
Is there any realistic possibility (nowadays) to have a contract after completing the type and line training with them?
I am frozen ATPL, low timer and like a lot of european pilots i don't see the light at the end of the tunnel, so FR is my last option, my "extrema ratio", before quitting everything and keep on marching with my current job.
Don't like the idea to pay the type, but that's the market, and looks like that no one is willing to change things soon...but this is another issue.

Thanks a lot in advance to those who will answer.
Oooops, btw, happy easter

You have to go first through an assessment and then (if u're successfull) through a type rating that will guarantee the job at almost 100%

Hi Rhino,
So tell me what is your suggestion for a frozen ATPL with 300hrs now?
Dont want to seem rethoric, but the situation is like this my friend...
General aviation is dead, at least where i come from so the only chance (for me) to get my axx on a plane is to pay the type and hopefully get paid by the hour like 90% of FR pilots...i will try it and see.
Maybe you are right or maybe not.
Thanks anyway for the heads up...

Don't listen to the negative moaners here, they are mostly moaning because they haven't got the money or they have been rejected!

Personally I would have jumped at the chance to get going with RYR, and I have many friends working for them, yes they have had some mixed experience, good and bad, but overall all of them are very happy to be working there, and in summer after passing 500 hours, they make good money too!

So I would just slightly put a deaf ear towards the people complaining about Ryanair, there are not many other chances to get experience, and if some are bothered by paying for their own water, just bring your own from Tesco!

If you working in an office, they don't give you free water either, some guys that are complaining, are really so dated!

Sure there are better things to come after, but I know of guys who are happy as soon as they get established and get a base they are happy with!

Someone who applied for Ryanair type rating course in March 12 and have been contacted by FR?
I am still waiting. What is the normal time before the first contact?

I was told by CAE, that they did not consider second time applications, that even when not called to interview, as soon as they have requested your CV, you are considered to have gone trough their system once, and will not be considered second time.

So only if you have not been contacted by them previously, will you be considered in the application process, unfortunately.

Who knows might change, but doubt so as it is now, not exactly a shortage of low hour pilots out there is it?

On another note, for those constantly knocking Ryanair on these boards, what other airline has given low hour pilots more chances of a job than Ryanair?

I would think in the last 10 years none have be recruiting more low hour pilots than Ryanair!

Consider the BA cadet program, that will cost you considerably more than training modular and getting in with Ryanair and paying your own TR!
What would you rather do? Spend over 100.000 with Oxford on the BA cadet program? Or get in with Ryanair after going modular, and spent 60.000 incl your own TR?

After gaining experience with Ryanair for 2 - 5 years, you will have been flying to every little hole of airfields in Europe, and gained loads of valuable experience, and you will probably be able to walk into most airlines afterwards, as long as you are reasonably switched on!

I think those who keep knocking Ryanair should shut up, because the only reason is that you are upset is that you either you did not make it in the selection or lack of money, tough luck, c'est la vie!
The selection process at Ryanair is not easy from what I have heard, not just because you have Euro's in your pocket that they will give you the job!
They can pick who they want!

I did not get interview or selected myself, probably because of my age, however I am not going tell others that joining Ryanair is crap, just because I got snubbed! I would actually encourage my friends to get that application in as soon as possible, because it is probably your best chance to get your career going!

I wish I had been given the chance, but I am not going to cry like a baby, just because they did not offer me an interview!

That's even better, so you can bring your own re-usable water bottle, see even more eco-friendly!!!

Hi guys, just need some advice on a certain aspect of the Ryanair application. In the section which says how long prior notice do you need before the assesment i ticked 1 month. looking back i think i screwd it up and was wondering should i just apply again and tick immediately. i am working and would need some bit of notice to get off work hence i ticked the 1 month. but if anyone can give me their opinion that would be great. cheers

Hi Akhan,

I ticked Immediately. I also work (full time 9-5, 5 days a week) but my current employers know my goal and they've been pretty flexible.
Not all employers are like that though, so you would just have to wangle a day off if called.

Good luck

Ryanair tests and assessment

Good evening!
I've just done the interview today. Very polite and friendly people during normal talking and during the interview, and even at the simulator.
It was a really exciting experience, quite hard for me cause I never flew a 737-800 before and and didn't even know how flying a jet was.
The sensation that the full motion flight simulator gives to you is pretty much impressive and fantastic at the same time.
It' s really beatiful how a big jet get faster the speed, and how precise and friendly are the instructors.
I tryed to answer to the personal questions in the most sincere way, and at the technical ones trying to explain as much as I could.

Ryanair have employed lots of Direct entry captains from Spainair/Malev. These are more of a priority than cadets. So there are getting the sim time and line training time. The cadets would be back of the queue. As for SFO's moving across Ryanairs expansion stops this year with no more delivery's so by the end of this year the seat you are in is the one you will stay in !!. When a vacancy comes up in the LHS Ryanair will give it to the person who will work for the least amount of money....SO cadets get in now before it's too late Ryanair will start to contract over the next few years so you have better have your 737 hourbuilding done !
