I had a call that went over my licence/MEIR validity dates and then asked to memorise the text. Got a call later that week with the date for the assessment so it was two different phone calls

How complex is the text they ask you to memorise? I've got this idea that it's incredibly complex.

It was really easy so You will make it. Also They want your Money for the interview and they are in need of pilots.


Best of luck!

Fo < 500h 737 = 50,5€ per schedule block hour
Sfo < 500 to 1500h 737 = 65,5€ ""
>= 1500h 737 = 70,5€

During the line training it's 30,5€ per hour

And for the net pay we receive 85% from the gross pay ( In spain ).
So as much as you fly as much you earn.

Hope i help some guys

Cheers and good luck all for the interview

Has anyone tried again applying to RYR should the assessment became unsuccessful?

If yes, how long should I wait before sending the documents through CAE?

Hi everyone,

I want to share my experience about my assessment. Maybe could help someone with this problem.

As I wrote few months ago in this forum, I applied in September 2016 and I got a phone call from CAE just 3 weeks later. I was asked if I passed everything at the first attempt (yes) and then I was read a text and to answer few questions. At the end of the phone call she told me that she had to send to Ryanair this interview and I should have received an email with a feedback the week later. I waited more than 5 months and I didn't receive anything. So, I thought that my english wasn't so good and this was the reason I didn't get the assessment. I went 5 weeks to the UK at an english intensive course to improve it. When I came back I replied to the email Cae sent me about the incoming phone call of last October, telling them what I did during the last months and about my english course. After few days I got a new phone call and this time I was successful (the lady told me my english was improved a lot).
I went to Dublin and we were paired for the sim (one with 737 mcc and one with normal fnpt).

Airport was Birmingham rwy33. I was first pilot flying. Normal handling, turns with constant rod, track qdm, check position on charts etc.
We got an emergency before holding, so I said standby to the flight attendant, finished the turn, gave control and comm to pm. I called back the cc, she explained me the problem. I told her to apply procedures and that I'd have called her back after our decision. We discussed the problem and after had received last weather info at Birmingham we decided to divert. I got controls back and I start normal procedure for ils rwy 33 (someone of other guys got the alternative procedure).
On the first ils I was one dot right and I decided to go around. The second approach was better and I landed.
After I was pm. We got non standard departure: climb straight ahead till 2 dme ils then turn and climb 5000. After some handling we got an emergency. I suggested my partner to finish his turn to the holding and to give me controls to discuss the problem. He started talking in the turn fogetting the power in idle. I called 2 times "check speed". After the speed was below 190kt (we should maintain 220kt) I said "check power". He didn't nothing, so I push the trust levers to 60% n1 (maybe it wasn't the best option but it saved from a stall). We were brought on the ils and we landed.

For the interview I was asked:

Last mep anti ice and de ice systems (pa34 seneca)
Seats on 737 RYR
Power of 737 engines
Bypass ratio of 737 engines
Talk me about turbofan, why we use it
Turderstorms, why is dangerous flying into them
Tropopause height

HR questions:

Talk me about yourself
Hobbies
About my flying school, if it was good and also if my instructors were good
Why Ryanair
How you'll pay the type rating
When can you start the trining with us.


After few days I got the email and I was successful.


My advise is to work hard and try to improve where you have problems. They really need pilots, so if you had the same problem with the phone call, improve your english and then send an email.

Good luck to everyone ;-)

I don't agree. I'm fairly certain that they know what they're looking for. The problem is going into it as a candidate it is difficult to know exactly what that is, and whether you are displaying it.

Certainly on their part though they are not just picking random names out of a hat.

So explain why some candidates have emergency situation or technical questions and some have nothing...
A french with me didn't have any technical question, I had 15 technical questions ... IT IS a lottery.
An equitable assessment is a same assessment for all candidates.

If they ask the same questions to everyone, then in time (once everyone has learned the same answers) any muppet would get through. Surely, different candidates have differing experiences and backgrounds, that is what they are interested in, and why they ask different types of questions depending upon who's sitting in front of them.

Ok, so they adapt to the candidate, that is equitable.
A young CPL IR ME they ask how work a jet engine, what is a yaw dumper, and how works hydraulics system on a boeing. And for a military with many hours on turboprop ... nothing ... it's equitable ^^

If they ask questions (not the same) for everybody, it's equitable !

If a candidate has hard sim with emergencies, no radar vector because radar is dead and an other has just turns, climbs and radar vector ILS full stop, do you really think it's equitable ?

I don't want to keep repeating myself here - it will NEVER be the same for everyone, regardless of whether you think it equitable or not, there are too many variables involved. The examiners will be bored out of their minds doing the same thing every time as well. It's what you do is important, not the next person.

To the cadets who recently finished their line training. What bases did you choose and which one did you get as your permanent base?

Hi everybody! First of all thank you people for sharing different experiences and backgrounds, it's really supporting and helpful. I just want to share my experience as well. Failed my first interview with Ryr 5 years ago. I spent the last years sending out CVs and applications all over the globe but nobody gave me an other chance. I didn't want and couldn't afford the risk to go for P2F. I kept everything current, studying, worked as airport ground staff, done some little unpaid aerial work.
This year Ryr called me for a second assessment and it went well, and I've already done with my line training!
I wanted to share my experience because I know it's hard when things get complicated but never give up! Good luck to all of you!
