You people are amazing, there is information here from a current Ryanair FO saying you are joining an outfit for whom you will be basically working for free, and you are all still bursting with enthusiasm. No wonder pilots are treated with such derision by management! Good luck to you, by the time you get your commands National Express coach drivers will have better salarys; their terms and Conditions are probably already superior!

CAE Ryanair

Hi all,

Has anyone else had the email today from CAE asking for an update of cv, hours and types etc.

Just wondering if this is some thing they send out all the time or if it is a sign they are starting to pick people up.

Cheers

Hobbit,

a bit too late with your words of wisdom.
For the last three years the local bus company have been paying more than most turbo operators offer to new recruits. No mention of a bond or paying for your Leyland double decker type rating either!!!

So which route is best for the average, freshly qualified wannabe, the 500express back from MAN???

If you research a little further you will find far worse than this, such as 32K sterling for a T/R, 150 hrs on line and neither pay or offer of employment.

Hi Polarhero and others
I too recieved one of those e-mails froma CAE on the 4th of January (to which I replied on same day) and today I recieved an invite to an assessment.
So it could be a good sign.
The only problem is my assessment is on the 7th of February at East Midlands, not much notice !
Would just like to get some feedback on the route, is it still Luton or has it changed again?
Also I need to do some prep in a 737-200 FFS, have used the one in Dublin at Simtech but heard about Realsimulation and was wondering if anyones used them for asessment prep, and if they were any good.
Any feedback greatly appreciated.

I used realsimulation at the Yorkshire Flight Centre for a sim prep last year and found them to be very good.

Devil

I have officially joined the queue for ryanair assesment as I have been sent a couple of dates to pick from in febuary hopefully trying to get my first step on the ladder. theres no point in asking what it is like as numerous posts here already describe it the only thing I want to know is who knows a friendly bank manager that is willing to fund the type rating?

Hi,

Does anyone have a picture / drawing on how the 732 simulator exactly looks like? Easy access to pictures of "real" a/c's on the web but if anyone can supply a good link or place to go look I'd appreciate it.

A few facts that some are seeking:

Initial application through CAE: 1 1/2 years ago (with MCC and 220TT)

1 month ago I was asked to update my profile: Was contacted a week later with a choice of ass. dates (600TT)

Ryanair Assessment

Hi,

I got an email from CAE asking me to update my details and send a CV on the 19th. Then I got a call this morning asking if I could go for an assessment on 1st February in Dublin. Has anyone else been asked to go over to Dublin as I see most people go to EMA.

Can anyone let me know what the assessment is like and what kind of technical and other questions to expect. Also any details of the sim check would be very greatly appreciated.

Thanks

3 days...I would have had a breakdown !
Just heard someone say something about Ryanair minimum hour requirements !!??
Anyone know anything about that...minimum in the last year or minumum total time ? I have 245 total, but only a 4 hours in the last year on actual aircraft, most of my time is in FNPT 2 and 737-200 FFS.
Just need some info to calm my nerves, otherwise im going to have to squeeze some actual flying in as well.

ps Dutchdog, Hope it went well today.

The information I have seen says that the minimum TT is 200 hrs, not sure how much they expect you to have in the last year though.

Hi all,

I am preparing myself for the assessment and as part of that I now have the opportunity (at the Danish simcenter: www.flight4fun.dk) to fly a 727 or DC 10 full motion (all analogue instrumentation) Which of the to would you say is more usefull? I'm guessing the 727 since it's Boeing.
