CAE Ryanair

Sure did, I'm going for assessment in Dublin on the Feb 16th.

Anyone got any idea what to expect at the assessment, all they say is Sim check, Tech questions 45min and Interview for 45min.

So if anyone can give me any ideas what they will be looking for in the tech paper?

Cheers

I'll let people know what it was like when i get back form it

Relax mine is on the 9th. What did you mean by sure did. Did they give you an agreement in principle. Anyway I have been practicing on flight sim everyday holds different entries you name it. I will also be booking a sim prep sesion with a certain company . However having read what has been said on some forums I will not mention it to the interviewers that I had a practice session the day before as they will expect a higher standard from you.

Having said that I will hope the company in question keeps thier customers names confidential.

I did the assessment on 5Th of january. Everything seemed good, I did a good sim, they asked me only one question (low pressure) and to repeat a Clearence...but I didn't pass the assessment and I don't know Why, because they don't give explanation...It's not an isolated case, other three people I know did the assessment on January and didn't pass...all for the Cadet position...so be carefull...
at EMA everything is the same: luton, sid, ndb approach with minor failure..
good luck to everyone

310,
Ok the time it has taken so far....
First filled in the form on the CAE website back end of Dec, don't remember the date but it was after Christmas.
I got the first email, the one asking for an update of CV on the 24th of Jan.
Responded to that with up to date CV and updated form on website on the same day.
Then got the email on the 29th asking if i would like to attend for assessment, this gave me the option of three days in feb, 16th, 21st and
22nd.
I decided the 16th was best for me so emailed back same day (29th) to ask for that day. Got the email confirming the date etc today.
Ask for career to date,
PPL in 1997
ATPL G/S started sept 2005 finished may 06, @ NAC G/S
CPL ME IR, July - Nov 06, Triple A @ Humberside
MCC Dec 06 @ ATF
FI, Dec06 -Jan 07 @LFS.
Just starting work as FI when the paper work comes back from Gatwick.
Hope that answers everything.

For the assessment you need to have a good level of English language skills. That is possibly why you failed. There are now no delays in Ryanair cadet training. The type rating takes approx 6 weeks. You normally base train within two weeks and then start line training immediately.

You don't get a choice of base but the airline is expanding in Dublin, East Midlands and Girona. So you may end up in any of these. You get paid from the date of the completion of your training.

inveritas you are not familiar with Ryanair if you say that. Remember you are giving advice here to people with a lot to lose. Your confident and apparently knowledgeable tone is misleading. One example - nobody gets a permanent contract in Dublin. Nobody knows that until after they part with their money. They are given a "take it or leave it" offer of a Brookfield contract at a later point.

Am I right, or am I wrong?

Hi guys I've been busy with this profile for some time and it does appear as if the 215 radial on BNN tends to come before you reach the suggested 1500ft turning point for jets when taking off on rwy 26. This is on my flight sim to those who've done the real assesment is it the same in the sim at EMA. Any pointers will be wellcome.

Have also been putting in the hours on FS 2004, also finding that the 215 radial comes in just before you reach 1500ft.
Any pointers welcome.
Also do you guys have any feedback with regards to weather, ie. ceilings, vis on departure and landing. Also any info on wind direction and speed would also be helpful.
Thanks in advance, and good luck to all, I'm up on the 7th of Feb at EMA, may my NDB needle not sway off the 257.....
cheers

I am looking for ward to booking a sim slot for the 8th as my assesment is on the 9th with realsimulation is there anyone that might be interested in either sharing or if we book a two hour slot we can have an hour each of pf and pnf rather than with the trainers.

I had apllied this summer just after the license to CAE and SAS, but still no sign of life from this people.
I currently work for Ryanair as Cabin crew and asking to the newest FOs, most of them send thir CV in the right hands and obtained the assement in a week, now i'm so curious........this is the only way to reach the assesment or some of you obtain this in the normal way??...applying in internet and that's it or somethings else??

My flight experience is flight cadet....fATPL MCC all the staffs and 200TT.

Please if someone have any advice i really appreciate..
Thanks guys

Gator,

Where'd you find out that about the unofficial age limitation?

Having completed the MCC at Dublin I think I might know your reliable source who sim preps. I would be of the opinion that 32 is his age limitation and not Ryanairs. He likes to boast about his success with sim preps for FR but will of course only choose who he deems suitable,not Ryanair!

Gator,

Interesting, I know the person you are talking about, he was one of the instructors during my MCC. He didn't mention this and in fact suggested I go for Ryanair!

I'm well over 32 BTW.

Tis a murky world

Edit to say that it looks like Gator deleted his posts. In fact I am 40 and have an assessment date with FR, so any notion of an age limit of bollocks

No Im not referring to Se Pardy. If this guy doesnt do the MCC course in the same builiding then I would be surprised. It also means that there are at least 2 sim prep instructors for FR at Dublin??

Not just yet but I am hoping to hear something any day……

Is there a particular reason why yours is in the -800 and not the -200 like the majority?

Several people here seem to have been called for an assessment following the cae info update email. Whether or not there is any pattern as to the order in which people are called, or the time period between these communications, I haven’t yet worked out.

Any information in this area would be welcomed.

I too recieved the email asking for my CV from CAE which got sent that night.

This email informing me about both the sim dates and then confirmation that I have the date I wanted have come from an @ryanair email address so I can only believe this is from CAE rather than SAS.

My sim days are all at the end of march

Email says its on the -800
