Hi!,

As chris_mc87 said the Briefing Pack comes from RYR as part of the assessment (all about the simulator is explained there). And the ACE is "the book"!!!!

Hi!,

Mental.. but easy!! Don't worry, just remember if 30 of difference: divide the wind speed by 2. If 90 of difference: divide the wind speed by 1.

They are not gonna ask you difficult numbers...!

Like MarvT and Lanum i also did the NGC (Next Generation Course) with SKY4U in Berlin. The NGC/APC consists of Boeing 737 CBTs, CRM, Jet Orientation, Loft Sessions, Screening Preparation and a lot of different things you can use for an successful Screening and Interview.

The NGC/APC helped me within my Screening on the Boeing 737 but furthermore it helped me a lot with my Typrating on the 737 and the Supervision.

Hey everyone,

@ironwings2014 - apparently they ask you basic informations about your licenses etc (expiry date, flying experience, attempts for ATPL and CPL/IR) and this is also useful for them to test your english level. They might also ask you questions about anything, such as, what makes a good pilot, or a good captain, etc.

And similarly, just to give my feedback : I applied last monday, the 13th of june, and today I've received the same mail! Wasn't expecting such a quick answer!

ironwings2014:
They will just ask you about your exams and flying hours and then they will read you short text twice and after that they will ask you 4 questions to make sure you are profficient in English. Then they tell you that you passed and you will be offered a date for interview. At the end you will be told all information about payment and briefing pack but this information will be sent to you by e-mail aswell so no need to write it down or memorising it. I had the call 3 hours ago.

Hi everybody

I've seen some guys speaking about sky4u. I did their APC program which was excellent and helped me very much to get a job in the airline industry. They have a state of the art simulator and very demanding and challenging instructors. Don't hesitate to contact them they will answer you any questions any time.

all best to everyone.

phone call

Hi guys,
@eeesprit thank you for your feedback, I did my application just 3 days earlier than you (10th june)!
@Krasty, I'd like to ask you some question if you don't mind:
1)Have you been called within the 2 weeks or later on?
2)How did you find assessors English? strict or readable?
3)How long time was your phone interview?
4)what about the short text you were talking about of?

Thank you!

Just a quick question guys ; how long do Ryanair give you from sending you the preparation pack with the profiles to learn to your assessment Day??
I take it they give you a few days to prepare ?!
Are their profiles just basic and generic?


Just out of interest, I have not received the call yet

Assessment Dublin

Good evening,
I will write down there my experience.
Phone interview:
-medical expiry date
-mep/ir exam date and expiry date
-cpl exam date and expiry date
-total flight hours
-"why should we hire you?"
Then they invited me for the assessment in Dublin-Simtech on 8th of June.

Assessment day:
I arrived just 45 minutes earlier, then the assessor invited us for the briefing. He divided us into 4 crews (2 people each crew): one person who did the MCC on 737 sim and one who did on a general fntp simulator.
I was the first together with my college.
I started to fly as PF:
-WAL2N SID briefed, then during the initial part of the sid he started with vectors together with speed change.
-radar vectors for the ILS NDB DME Rwy 27 in EMA.
-no emergency situation.
Same things for my partner, except he had an emergency situation with FIRE IN TOILET. Then full ALTERNATIVE PROCEDURE ILS NDB DME.
10 minutes later I was invited for the interview with the HR and the same assessor I had for the simulator.
HR question:
-introduce yourself
-why Ryanair?
-why should we hire you?
-what is important in the mcc course?
-why have you chosen your flight school?
-where do you usually fly from?

Tech question:
-we talked a litlle bit about glider and my gliding activity (he saw that I had the GPL)
-max 737-800 cieling
-seats on the 737-800
-swept wings adv and disadv
-why are there high lift devices on swept wings?
-how are flaps operated?what pressure?

9 days later they sent me the positive answer via email.

You will find very relaxed atmosphere and they will do everything possible to put at ease. I suggest, during the simulator, to perform all the standard briefing, to call for all the checklist and to interact with your sim partner.

Best regards and good luck all!!
