My story:

Applied less than one month ago, got the e-mail and the call the next day.
Attended the assessment last week, got the positive answer few days later.

Tips:
Study everything that you can, be curious. Always ask yourself why a thing is like that. This thread has an enormous database of possible questions. I used the ACE book too. Study the SOP that they send you. Be prepared when you apply, they need pilots, they WILL call if you meet the profile that they want.
Be relaxed, the assessors are really nice. They are very good instructors too, giving you all necessary infos.
I did a sim prep session at uPilot the day before, and it worth it. Very good tips with a very high value for an excellent price.

Btw, I'm in FR1709 at EMA, anyone here?

I am looking for all the paperwork we need for the interview, and I have NO idea how I can get the BACHILLERATO/ESO diploma translated to english and in a valid and official form.

In the other hand, do we also need the scores for each subjet of BACHILLERATO/ESO?

Is there anyone who has done this process before and the HR accepted it who can give me the correct way to do it?

I have searched in google with no luck...

Thank you so much, and please PM me!

One spanish here that already passed the assessment.

To translate your Baccalaureatte or "Bachillerato" diploma you will have to contact an official translator, i will forward you the official list below, just contact to anyone of them an explain he/she you want to translate your Baccalaureatte certificate into English that should be fine. (BTW, It cost me 50€ to do it)

The scores are shown depeding in which high school you studied in, mine instead, was a public one and the scores appeared on it (As most of public High schools)

Here's the link i mentioned

Best luck to you http://www.exteriores.gob.es/Portal/...0de%202017.pdf

Hi fellow pilots,

Questions regarding the documents to bring at the assessment. After the phone call, by a mail from CAO, they remind me to bring this at the assessment :

"Academic/Educational Certificates (If this is not in English please get it officially translated by a translation agency).

A minimum of 2 written references in English signed by the referee e.g. Employment references or If you have never been in employment a signed reference from a person who knows you for the last 5 years or more (NB this cannot be written by a relative) and a reference from an educational body (high school or university). All references must be signed by the referee!"

I can have a reference letter from my job and I guess from my father. But the academic certificate is my high school diploma? From 12 to 18 years old right? So I have to officially translate that I guess.

Just to make it clear I am from Belgium in case this change anything.

Thanks for the help!

You cant have a reference from your father, have a look... it states "NB this cannot be written by a relative".
About academic reference, is a reference letter written from your school, it's not the diploma.

If it's been too long ago since you've graduated, 2 employment references will suffice.

I have to say, a LOT of posts in this thread ask pretty dumb everybody competent enough to wipe their should know - or stuff that has been asked and answered 20 times in the last year alone (search function!)

Hi all,

I've heard that Ryanair/CAE would prefer applications by those who have had flying experience in the last 6 months. Does anyone know whether Ryanair or indeed any airlines what they prefer in the type of recent flying experience you've had, for example does it matter if you've flown a SEP (Diamond DA40) or MEP (Diamond DA42)?

I think they do prefer people who are in current flying practice. MEP is probably better than SEP, but I had mostly SEP (MEP was current, just little used) and that was OK. Last flight had been just over a month before the initial email.

Your last flight before getting the initial email, was it in a SEP?

Yes it was.

Last MEP flight had been four months ago for my IR reval. I cannot remember what I had put as my last flight on the application, but when they called me they asked, and I gave them a date just over a month prior. Don't think they actually asked what sort of flight it had been.

For your informations I have been flying around 10hours on SEP since I apply with them on October.

Thanks I will not ask ask my father so. I miss reading.I am waiting one from my employer and my school (even if it's was a long time ago seems like they will do it). I'm working on translating my secondary school diploma as well even if this seems to much...

How can I get à second référence...

Anyone as a good tip for an hotel close to RYR headquarter?

Travelodge Dublin airport is indeed a nice suggestion.
Another nice one is the Premier Inn which is also just a couple minutes walk from the RYR building, good luck!

For those of you who are going to attend the assessments, good luck and keep faith!

The assessment days were really relaxed, although it was hard work in the simulator, but the assessors really make you feel relaxed and it was a nice day with the group.

For my preparation, I used:

- PPRuNe
- Ace
- Latestpilotinterviews.com
- Sim prep session in Dublin

So it was a lot of preparation, but the above points prepared me perfectly and in the end it was definitely worth it.

Good luck all and hope to meet up in the future!
Hi Ben,

A good and solid preparation does the job, congratulations!
I'll sent you a PM so we can stay in touch for the type rating training.

Hello, I have my assessment on the 26th.
But I am trying to find an answer to the following question and I can't find it:
On the website of Ryanair it is mentioned that you might get selected of a pool of candidates after your typerating. Does it happen that you pay the TP, succeed and don't get to start for them?

I'm not defending this policy in any way, shape or form. However, if you have anywhere between 50-100k training debt and repayments starting in a few months, the prospect of a 'near' guaranteed job are, I'm sure, a big lure. Even if you have to dig yourself deeper into debt.
