During the assessment when you are PF, are you sitting in the left or right seat? And are flight directors used just for the initial departure?
How long is the sim assessment in total?
Thanks

Thank you
Hi. This is partially true. I would say you don't get paid the next 5/6 months from the date you get a positive answer. Why? Because you have some waiting periods, then you go to EMA for intro week, then EMA or AMS for TR, then Base Training, then wing ceremony and a lot of waiting periods in between. Everything added up, you're easily 5/6 months, knowing you have to pay for food/accommodation to cover the whole period, pay for type rating, uniform, ID... many others things. When you finally start Line Training, you don't get paid until you're safety pilot released which is between 12 to 30 sectors (20 is the average). After that, you get 30.5/hour which is not a lot. You start getting a decent salary after Line Training, increasing after 500 hours...

Dear applicant,

We are cleaning our database. This E-mail is to enquire if you are still interested in the Ryanair Type-rating program via CAE.

If you are still interested, simply REPLY to this email before 02-AUGUST-2017, no added text is needed.

IF WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED A REPLY FROM YOU BY THE 3RD of AUGUST 2017 YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE WITHDRAWN FROM THE SELECTION PROCESS.

Based on our cleansed database we will contact all suitable applicants who are selected by the airline to proceed in the selection process in due course.
After 4 and a half years since I sent my application and didn't hear anything back from them, I got that email too. I thought they were taking a shot at me since I didn't update my application in a while

Thank you JohanP! I see...indeed quite a long period.

Skipname, received the same email lol
though I sent email explaining about my IR expired, (requested by the woman I got on phone), never heard anything from them then. What they want ? no idea.
So I replied "yes" to this email just to drag the things out and see later.

Applied mid July, got the phone call a week after, had to send additional document and had the assessment yesterday.
First on the sim, simple departure from EMA, couples of manoeuvrers, emergency and back to ILS raw data landing. Very simple.
Classic HR questions
Technical :
Forces on an airplane
Questions about drag
Wing tips, winglets
why sweep angles wings
questions about Mcrit
Bypass engine

Got the good email this morning, starting TR in november.
Best of luck
Cheers !

Do CAE email you to tell you they will call within x amount of days, or do they just phone you out of the blue for the telephone interview?

I used this thread, lastestpilotJob, wikipedia for the RYR figures

And I reoppen my ATPL books.
Don't need to overstress, don't screw up your sim session, show good CRM and you'll be fine
Best of luck !!

Can anyone explain what documents do I have to upload for a type rating for RYR at CAE? ATPL results is a document from the flight Academy or from the CAA? What is MEIR result and CPL result? Do I have to scan the skill test record completed after I passed? Why isn't the license enough?

I received the same email on Friday, the 28th and another email from CAE saying that my application is not complete. Can anybody explain if i have to send ATPL results from the academy or from the CAA? What kind of document is CPL result and MEIR result? Is it a scan of the skill test record? Why isn't the license enough?

It seems that Ryanair is opening APC program to all the people with a frozen ATPL...https://youtu.be/xdY0CMVfMxs

I requested copies of my MEIR and CPL skill test result from my CAA and this was their reply. Seems fair to me.

"The Authority does not release such information for use in the manner requested. A Recruitment agency has no need to have sight as to how you obtained your qualification, only that you have attained same.

The process to attain a licence is prescribed by regulation and is designed to achieve a safe progression to a level of competency suitable for licence issue. Requesting sight of elements of the progression to licence issue is not appropriate and may put future trainees under undue and dangerous pressure if this becomes common practice.

The licence should be taken at face value as an indication that the holder has achieved the required standard for licence issue."

I disagree with MetalGear: it doesn't seem fair to me...

Elena:

First, as a general principle, it's personal information about you, that the authority holds; you should be able to access it. What you do with it once it's in your hands is another matter.

Second, the recruitment agency, not the authority, has been engaged to do the recruitment, and they will be the judge of the metrics they (and their client, the airline) wish to apply; whilst it may have developed a corporate opinion, the authority is not 'competent' in that regard.

Third, it's already common practice, so unless the authority stops doing anything other than issuing or refusing to issue a licence at the very final stage (i.e., as long as it creates and maintains detailed paperwork about passes and failures, and grades etc) that element of the argument holds no water.

Finally, there are those who ace the exams and tests and those who struggle to get through them. Often, those who struggle at that stage, will also struggle or fail at others. They present a poor risk to the recruiter and employer. Sorry to those who feel this fits them, but it's true.

I'd go back to the authority and ask who wrote that reply and what the justification for it is. It just doesn't hold water.

Was it the UK CAA? PM me if you prefer...

(I should add, as fair disclosure, that I do some recruiting work, though not for the airline under discussion here).

hello all! I am new to the forum as a poster but have been reading along for a while now. I have heard from a study mate who was already 737 rated but after succesful interview with ryanair they asked to do the rating again, is this true?
