737-800 or 737-200?

Some people here are more interesting about arguing with others what is each individual's best choice or not. Let's open a new topic called "Bu...hit and rumours" huh?
This is an assesment/Ryanair/training topic (or It used to be until our dear moderators threw in bunch of topics from everywhere) so let's stick to it. I don't wanna know your personal pains and issues and detailing your negative irrational thoughts, guessings and speculations etc. as most of us wasn't born with the silver spoon in our mouth and at the end of the day; life is what you make it!
OK, got that one out fairly quickly, didn't I?
Back to the 800 vs 200 questions and answers.
The reason they were using 200 is mainly because of the analog instruments used in that model and pretty straight rudder and stick flying and manouverability of that a/c. Most low time pilots come from analog background, therefore it is easier to adapt to 200 than 800.
Why are they using 800, beats me, but I guess they want more stringent pilots. Part of this is also us yapping here on pprune about procedures,interviews etc, and believe me, they do have HR people monitoring web sites and then take actions accordingly!
Their main goal on SIM assesment for them is to see how is your first initial contact with full size medium jet and your handling characteristics during procedures they gave you and not how well you can handle it after 10 hours of self paid SIM with Realsimulation.
It is not in their favour, having hundreds of people going into 737-200 sim (259 ph, not so expensive isn't it?) on their own prior to assesment and book 5 or 10 hours on it, and then come and do the assesment at EMA as this way, they don't get the realistic picture of who they are hiring.
Well, they know you will have a hard time doing the same thing in a 737-800 sim, agree?
So, this could be one of the main factors...

Cheers and don't be negative for crying out loud!

Ryanair no longer fly the 737-200 airicraft and have sold their 737-200 simulator in East Midlands. That's probably the reason why the simcheck there is now on the 737-800.

the 737-800 is alot easier to fly than the 737-200, especially in the simulator. Regardless of level of experience.

Current details for Sim Assessment/Interview?

Has anybody done the sim assessment/interview in the last week or so? If yes, which airport did you fly in/out of? Did you do a SID +/or STAR? What was your emergency? Any details from sim or interview would be greatly appreciated, I have mine in a little over a week...

thanks!

SIM assessment

Hi all,

I got an email, yesterday from FR, inviting me also to EMA on 737-800. Haven't flown the 800, only the 200 for my MCC.

Anyone gotfeedback from the last sim assessment, SID, STAR, Profile

What kind of technical questions do they ask you? A friend of mine had only a question on how to use POH and perf charts, another, had tough questions in Theory of flight and engines.

I'm so stressed now that I can't even write.
Please Help!

Sim partner

Hi all,

I recently found out that I have an assessment at EMA in a week and I am planning on getting a bit of sim practice before hand.

Is anybody interested in sharing some sim time? That way we would both either get twice as much time in the sim or pay half the price. It would also be an excellent opportunity to practice CRM as PNF which is also evaluated in the sim.

If you have already booked a slot I would be wiling to either split the cost and share, or book the following/previous slot and we could double the time.

PM me if you are interested.

Cheers,
0-8

P.S
Good luck all!

Sim Partner

Hi O-8, I have an assessment in EMA too, in April.
You need the 737-800, that's the one in use there.
I'd be happy to share the sim with you, so we can share the cost and experience.
If interested, drop me an email.

Take care and good luck

No more 737-200

Hi,
Just to let everyone know, the 737 200 from EMA is indeed moving to it's new home in the South, however will remain in it's transportation container until it makes the second part of it's journey to Australia. This I know will come as a BIG surprise to a number of people.

I have my assessment in Dublin in may as well, the 2nd. As a friend adviced me, I'm trying to get some 737-200 training at Parc Aviation in the late april!
In Dublin, is it still the 737-200 that is used?
If somebody has his assessment in early May, contact me! It will be a real pleasure to share preparation!

Ryanair assessment

Hi Guys,
Thanks to all who posted their feedback on this thread, a lot of help !
I have my FR sim assessment in April, in EMA, on 737-800. I have been told that SID, STARS... procedures have recently changed.
Any feedback from pilots who attended the assessment in the last weeks ?
Cheers
Zest

Hi - had assessment last week.
Sim profile was straight forward. Dep out of Luton RWY 26, cant remember what is was called. But basicaly after departure left turn at - I think 1030 feet to intercept radial. U basicaly straight on it. Then right to intercept QDM to NDB climbing to 5000'. Then Radar Vectors - Mailfunction - we had Engine fire - to recalls - engine back and Radarvectors back to NDB at Luton. Examiner ask here we are on the plate - then back for NDB,DME approach on RWY 26. All straight forward and no hiden tricks. Very nice people !!
Good luck and enjoy !!!!!
