Hello guys!

As I had many help consulting this website I would like to contribute to it with my feedback!

First: if you get the email telling you they will call you within the next 14 days: THEY WILL, even after those 14 days. I have been called on the 16th day so don't worry.

Second: If they tell you after the phone interview that they will come back to you with an answer maybe you passed, maybe not but I know some people who have been re-called few weeks after to do the phone interview again (I know it's weird). In my case I had the date for the assessment in Dublin directly after the few questions they ask during the call.

For the assessment I would suggest you to do a sim, wherever it is but a jet if possible, it will help you for sure! During the training sim make some general handling exercices (Climb, Descent, Accelerate, Decelerate, turns and so and so). After those exercices train for hold entries and normal ILS procedures. That is all we had on the assessment date + an emergency situation while in the hold (toilet smoke and they just want you to go trough a DODAR/NITS briefing whichever you learned during your MCC).

I would suggest you to speak up and interact with your PM, make him follow the decision process and ask him open questions about it. If you are pilot flying and have been asked to intercept such radial to enter such a hold or so and that you feel unsure about how to get in: speak up, ask your PM to help you, it is his role to do so and you will never be blame of doing so (the sim goes fast so you will may be get lost in your head while keeping that ALT, HDG and SPD). Simply ask your mate!

For the technical interview I won't learn you anything but here are the questions we had:

Jet streams, swept wings, high lift devices, V2, screen height, Clear Air Turbulence, different types of fog. Questions about the previously flown MEP (electrical system of DA42/PA34), critical engine.

Human Resources were: Why Ryanair should hire you? Questions about my CV (jobs I did), negative side about me, how will you finance the TR, what do I know about Ryanair and so and so...

Be honest, focus on the questions, they don't want you to make a full course on POF while explaining swept wings: key words, simple explanations that is all they want in my opinion. They want you to show that you understand what you are talking about, that you KNOW your aircraft well and that you will then be able to follow their TR course successfully.

They were all very kind and helpful so don't come there too stressed out, I know it is hard but you have plenty of time to stress before!

We were 8 on that day and 7 of us got the positive answer 6 days after the interview!

Good luck

Hi guys,
Thanks for sharing your experience. But can anyone tell if all of you have answered questions they asked, I mean technical and passed interview sucessfully? What if you dont answer few of them, does that mean you failed?

How would you normally answer the HR question about funding the type rating? What do they expect to hear?

Erm.....that you can pay for it? On a serious note I would guess they would expect you to have done some research into available loans if you don't have a bank account full of monies.

Goodmorning everyone.
I wonder if anyone could give me the information regarding EASA Validations and 3rd Country Licences.
Let me explain, I'm 24 I live in the States and I Work for one of the many Regional Airlines.
Recently I noticed that Ryan Air by IAA could release a validation license for one year during which I should do the ATPL 14 written and at the same time allow me to fly in the EU.
If anyone had any information to share I would appreciate.
Thank you!

Hi,

The e-mail says the assessment will take place at Ryanair HQ in Dublin, but it does not provide any adress. I guess it is the building in the Airside Business Park.

I have some questions about the documents that must be brought to the assessment, if someone can help please:

Anyone from Spain has officially translated the passport? (titles are in Spanish, English and French)
We are instructed to bring our logbook, do they need copy of the whole logbook or just the last two pages as stated later in the e-mail?
Where is the "application form"? in the "briefing pack" I haven't yet received?

On the other hand, what does the "Briefing pack" contain?

I booked the "Premier Inn" by the way.

Regards!

Don't worry, you will get the briefing-pack a couple of days before your assessment. Premier Inn is only a couple of houndred meters away from Ryanair HQ. When they clearly state that they need the last two pages of your logbook, that's what you bring, together with the logbook itself. Good luck!

What is a correct action when you have a smoke in cabin or there is a fire in a toilet? I have never had anything like that on my MCC.

Hey guys!
In the application form (briefing pack), How did you guys filled up the field "low visibility status catI/II/III"? Becase I really don't know what do they mean with that!

Cheers!

There was a rumor in this thread five years ago, that guys older than 30 years had practically no chance to get invitation to assessment by Ryanair.

There is another rumor now, that hiring situation has not been better than now, so I would like to ask if I have a chance to get to assessment now. I turned 30 a few months ago and had to repeat one ATPL theoretical exam (practical CPL/IR skill tests passed on the first attempt). Moreover my English is not perfect, as you can see.

Is here anyone familliar with current situation? Thank you for your remarks.
