Do you expect a normal answer to this or are you just here for trolling?

"Because of the opportunity I get to start my career in the airlines" or "stable roster, solid carrer" or if you want to think more long term "of the internal career opportunities available" – SFI or even TRI.

I said something like: flying a lot, new aircraft etc. etc.
I don't think it would be hard for you to think of your own answer that would be satisfactory to someone at HR.

But I'd like to have the details as well!

Waiting for line training

I was wondering, with the situation that's happening in Ryanair right know with lots for experienced pilots leaving how long does a new cadet or FO have to wait for line training after the sim? I have couple of friends that went to Ryanair as direct entry captains none type rated did the sim in April and are still waiting for line training

Seems to me like it is not an "auto-reply" type email, one of my friends got the same one yesterday and the text itself was a little different, concerning the same thing, so I figure, a human being had actually gone through my application and I guess they wouldn't waste time if they didn't want to call..
OFC sent them the document they wanted the same day (Last Friday), no feedback except the email saying "Thank you for completing your application"...

Anybody anything?
Thanks!
So a little update - it has been over a month now and still no email, no call...
I'm 29, All ATPL subjects passed at first attempt, average 92%, all skill tests also at first, icao english 6, CPL ME IR , MCC JOC (in simtech with a very good feedback from the instructors- simtech gives you a copy of your progress book which I have also sent to RYR), 230 hours TT, 106 PIC, ongoing FI, I work as an ATPL instructor and speak fluently 5 different languages.. don't know what else (except hours) could they be asking for....

So from what I see it MAY actually be true that they don't like to hire ex-employees (I was a cabin crew between 2011 and 2013)

Slowly getting depressed and thinking of some pay-to-fly line training program..

The FI path is good, respectable way to start your career, as long as you really feel you want to instructor, otherwise don't.
Know people who have instructed for a year or two and eventually got their jet jobs on CRJ and Airbus. In Europe, of course.

If you already worked for them as a cabin crew and know what it is like to work there, why do you want to go back there?

Also why is it so important to get a job on a shiny jet straight away? Why can't you fly general aviation for a while, until something better comes along?

As for the pay to fly thing you mentioned, it would be a very move if you pursue it.

I' ve read a lot about atpl exams attempts and it looks like there's no clear crtieria regarding it. I have three fails, but I've read there are pilots with also 3 fails and got the phone interview and finally made a positive assesment. On the other hand, I can read that you can have at least 1 fail and a minimum average score of 89%, otherwise they will be rejecting your application... So I'm really confused about what they're looking for.

It is unfortunately not the real cost of the course, you have to pay for everything, eg company ID, uniform, licence transfer, accommodation during and of course you won't get paid. So you have to count 50k instead.
The delay is up to 5 month now between sim and line training, no salary during that time, you're on your own.
Think twice before joining, it is P2F basically, I couldn't afford it, they kicked me out without further notice.

I applied for Ryanair 3 weeks ago. How long does it usually take to get an answer? Any ideas?

I've been paying for my training very gradually with my current monthly salary, which is not huge that's why I'm flying since 2014 and just now I'm managing to get it done.
You can apply for the APC program with McGinley Aviation.

The one you are talking about is via pre-selected schools. The one I am talking about is open to everybody but it is clearly stated that only 10% of the next recruitment will be done via the APC program.

Same thing for me, no news at the moment, I have been told that it usually takes between 2 and 4 weeks to get the call...

For me it took 1 year and 2 months, but someone I did flight training with was called after a few months. So there is no 'usually' for this haha
