Help needed guys

Ryanair
Hi all

Sorry for my ignorance in not searching hard enough for the answers beforehand.

I'm looking at applying for FR, I have competed all requirements which they ask of you, along with completing an MCC & JOC. If anyone could answer the following questions I have it would be greatly appreciated, and I would owe you a beer for your help!

1) How often are the interviews and what are they like? From reading a few post about the sim assessment, is it full motion or fixed? And is it pot luck what candidate you are paired with?

2) How often are the TR courses running, and what time frame would I be expecting from Inteview to training to Working?

3) What is the current T&Cs which they are offering new starters? Hourly Pay, Annualy Leave (pay), current tax policy, Basing (I would prefer STN base as I live very close, what are my chances of getting it)

4) What are they like to work for? Current roster, guys that work there, morale?

5) We are expecting a child in late August, will they be flexible with paternity leave, or anything of the sort?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

There are thousands of exisiting posts on here that will cover all of your questions. Your best bet for the assessment is the Ryanair assessment thread like you mentioned. It has page after page of experiences and advice.

Re the bases, from what I gather it's very unlikely you'll be based in the UK let alone STN.

Ryanair

Hey, I too would like to work for the worst conditions possible, what other airline can screw me over and make me feel worthless?

You are a bit late. They have just done a deal to take the next 700 pilots from CTC.
Whoever told you that is a complete idiot. Where did you read that? Are you trying to say that Ryanair will take a year of cadets from CTC only? That means roughly 1400 CTC cadets to get an assessment lol

They will take cadets, yes, not 700, it's about roughly 100 per year, maybe more maybe less, and yes, the big change is they will be a train provider to RYANAIR cadets, not CTC cadets

I would always read a little more into CTC comments, i also don't believe they will solely be supplying FR for the next few years. I do believe their cadets will be at a huge advantage but I think cadets around Europe will still be called as per norm. CTC marketing Debt deserve a raise for sure hahaha!!

As far as I know, Ryanair have been recruiting CTC trainees (both integrated and modular) since forever with FTE and OAA trainees. It just seems they will be a third training location for the type rating course: Amsterdam, East Midlands and Southampton.
It seems it has to do only with training capacity.

CTC&OAA&FTE together do no have the capacity to fill the needs of RYANAIR! Ryanair will have a huge demand for pilots during the following years! As RedBull said the CTC agreement is just like the CAE OAA they will use their premises for the type rating courses and CTC cadets will be called first! That's all! OAA integrateds are paying twice the price for being called sooner than modulars, now the CTC folks as well!

Nothing new!

When I say training capacity, I mean places where they run their type rating course. Not cadets. I did not say CTC cadets will be called first. There might be some preference maybe, same story with OAA and CAE academies, but modular guys will still have their share of chances.
They recruit from all over Europe, not just from UK schools.

Urbe Aero in Rome trained many pilots in Italy that now fly for Ryanair for example. And Urbe isn't the only school in Italy that has a good number of Italian past students now flying for Ryanair.

Anyone with recent selection experience? Received email 30th of April, replied one day later, and since then no response.
Here in forum are just posts, where is stated 2-3 days till response, and guys meanwhile used to receive mail confirming, that their cvs were sent to RYR for aproval.
For me absolutely nothing. Is it because of huge number of guys they are assesing these days? Thank you guys for any info.

10 months waiting since applying.

Don't know how much time i'm going to wait for them to call me, anyone else in the same situation? a little bit frustrating...

I know they don't owe a interview to anybody but , know people been called in less than 2 months.

I waited nearly 3 years. One guy in the interview waited 5 years. A guy in this thread sent his CV, was waiting for an answer but they took long and he decided to e-mail them again, got rejected straight after. Patience is the key, remember! People that have been called so early are CAE OAA students or were just lucky

EFIS mode

Hi,
Has anyone asked the SIM assessor if they can fly with PFD/ND mode instead of EFIS if both you and your SIM partner are more used to that?

If EFIS mode is used only to facilitate for people without any B737 experience it may not be a problem?

Thanks

maciekish this is what you'll get:





The only thing you can ask is to get your PFD as the basic T if you're not familiar with the PFD of the 737.

You will get flight directors for your departure only but don't forget to set it up otherwise it will confuse you.

@nelsonmuntz What did you have your address on your application as? Your home address in your home country or your Irish address?

@plikee have the procedures changed? What you describe is the regular PFD/ND layout which im familiar with. But i have heard Ryanair uses the EFIS (Southwest) style layout only for the assessment. Maybe there was a misunderstanding in my question?

They used the EFIS style panel in Stansted when I was there. From what I've heard, maybe they use the regular type in Ireland, but I'm not sure.

Might be that they changed it in STN as well, it is after all about 6 months since I was there.

Something like this:




Does any airline actually use this setup?
