On the 'Documents' page on the CAE website it states that the 'English Language Proficiency Certificate' is mandatory, I'm British and lived in the UK all my life and only speak English, do I really need to get a certificate to prove this to Ryanair?

Hey guys,

I know the question has already been answered a lot, but I didn't find the answer... I just got the mail today and I would like to know what kind of questions they will ask during the phone call.

Thanks a lot

EDIT : They just calle me. 3 questions about inflight fire, nothing difficult

I just received the call which confused me a bit. They didn't tell me straight away if I passed or failed they lady said to me she will get back to me by next week with a decision. Anyone in a similar situation?

Hi everyone,

I got a call from CAE yesterday. They asked me about by total hours, my pic hours, one or two questions about my certificates, when was my last flight and when are going to expire my medical and my ratings. They asked me if I have a FI rating, which I do.

Finally they read me (two times) a short text about fire in flight and they made me 3 questions about it (all answers are in the text):

1. Which is the most dangerous emergency in flight?
Fire in the cockpit
2. Which is the most obvious from the fire?
Flames
3. Which is the most dangerous from this situation? (something like that...)
Smoke and chemical fumes

I passed the phone interview and I am going next week to Dublin.


Hope it helps

I got the call yesterday - going on 15th March.

I have to admit to feeling a bit caught out by the short notice. It's been three years since I did my MCC and haven't flown the 737 sim since then. Will try and get some practice in!

What simulator do they use? Is it comparable to the on at Simtech or www.simchek.ie?

Ryanair sim is 737-800 no-motion sim. Really new flies easy just trim!
I use upilot.ie at dub airport and that prep relly help for me. This sim is realistic arrangement but controls are more light feeling otherwise was ideal and cheep and close to Ryanair! Goodluck

I did my MCC in simtech. The ryanair sim is a proper 737 fixed base and not a FNPT2. that means the cockpit is smaller (real 737 size) than the Simtech one. the seating position is slightly different too, you feel a bit closer to the windscreen. It also has the real boeing thrust levers etc...
flyingwise, I didn't feel any major difference in the way the plane handles.

Hi all,

I just returned from my assessment day in Dublin, really curious about the outcome now.
For my preparation I used this website and subscribed to the Ryanair interview package at latestpilotinterviews.com
I was able to practice all the interview questions, so I have a really good feeling about the outcome.
It is also advised to do a simulator preparation in Dublin the days before the assessment.

Is that normal?

Hey Guys,
I applied through CAE to Ryanair on the 28 of February, received the email about the imminent call on the 7 of March. Today I finally got the call from Cindy.
All very nice and calm, as usual, I was asked to confirm all the expiry dates of my documents, plus some question about the attempt at the examinations and logged hours.
After that, She read a text of about 3/4 lines and asked 3 questions.
Everything seemed good to me and to Her...

She then told me that all the information has been forwarded to the Amsterdam HQ to check the application.

Now, my question is: Is this the normal procedure? Or She would have told me if I had passed?

Yes thanks a lot (and to all the others who posted).

One concern I have is about the flight school report (which they seem to make quite a thing of) - I did my ATPL ground exams and my MCC at different places from CPL/IR - should I try and get a report out of my ATPL ground school (which was a distance course)?

No, just your flight training.

Also, don't fret. They don't care as long as it's not a bad report
