Guys I'd really like to hear from you of how are you guys paying for the TR... I am about to finish the basic training and will be a fresh fATPL, I'd love to work for Ryanair but the 30k TR cost is something that I can't figure out a way to pay for.... 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.

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?

You can apply for the APC program with McGinley Aviation.

No you cant... Unless you are lotto winner!

APC generally applies only to people from eastern Europe and you are lucky if you get selected. So far only handful of people got it

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

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..
I had to wait 6/7 months and eventually was called for the cadet graduate programme. Where you work in tech services for 12 months before you do the type rating.

It's impossible to know what the criteria they go for. if you hear nothing after 6 months I recommend the graduate programme if you hold a degree of any kind.

Hang tough it's a cruel industry

Anyone invited by CAE lately for an interview by phone? I have received the confirmation that my application was complete at the 28st of August, after the e-mail with the request to upload a flight school report. Nothing heard since then...

Same thing happened to me.
I took the chance and wrote them an email asking them to confirm if my uploads were now as they wanted.
The next day I got an email saying "Thank you for completing your application"
1˝ hour later I got the email from CAE about the phone call.

Thank you Martin. Hope your assessment was succesful. One final question; when have you first uploaded any documents? In other words, what was the date of your initial application?

It´s crazy to see how some guys gets the call so quickly.....Applied on the 8th of Sept. and nothing; even being a cadet from CTC with first time passes in everything and ATPL average of 92% seems to be not crucial

Thanks

I've uploaded all the required documents, but there is still the following message when I connect to MyCAE training portal :

"to complete your Training Request, you are now required to upload the documents listed below. Failure to upload these documents will prevent your request from being processed.

•CV (English version)
•Copy of ATPL written exam results (original)
•Copy of CPL result (1st series; partial; 2nd series; etc)
•Flight school report (English version) **
•Copy of MCC Certificate (Original)
•Copy of Multi-Engine Instrument Rating (MEIR) result
•License
•Medical Class 1
•Passport"

Wich I did 4 weeks ago and checked but the message is still there when I login.
Has anyone the same problem?

This message also appears on mine whenever I log in, it is just information. If you already have all the docs uploaded don't worry

My experience

Me: British 23yo cadet graduated from CTC integrated in February 2017.

Correspondence

* 02 May 2017 - application submitted
* 17 Jul 2017 - email "your online application is not complete" (i emailed tech support asking what this meant as all my documents were uploaded. No reply)
* 28 Jul 2017 - email - "still interested?"
* 04 Aug 2017 - email - "thanks for telling us you're still interested. Your profile is still not complete"
* 24 Aug 2017 - email - "expect a call in the next 14 days" (I hadn't done anything to my profile)
* 31 Aug 2017 - phone call
* 04 Oct 2017 - assessment

I had no interview questions on the phone, it was all admin. He told me my flight report had to be signed, and to email him a signed copy. Once I did he called back and offered me a date. If you need to change the date, you'll have to wait a week or two for another call.

Simulator Assessment

As PM:
LPL Wallasey 2T rw 27
T/O: auto thrust, disconnect at 1500'
General handling
Show position on the chart
LPL RV ILS rw 27

As PF:
LPL Wallasey 2T
General handling
Freeze sim
Passenger heart attack. We were able to DODAR, NITS, set up for the approach
Unfreeze sim
LPL Procedural ILS rw 27

Charts used are Navtech. Our assessor was friendly and helpful, reminded us of pitch/power datums, and fine tuned the thrust throughout (it was the same for everyone who had him).

Interview

What model number are our 737s
How many seats
What protection does it have against ice
What was the DA42 Crosswind limit
How do you calculate crosswind in your head
What was the cruise speed
How long would it take you to travel 40 miles
What is V2
Where is the screenheight

What's your background?
Why did you choose your school?
Why did you want to become a pilot?
What are you doing at the moment?
What was the hardest part in your training?
Where do you see yourself in five years?
Why didn't you join easyJet?
Where else have you applied?
What are your weaknesses?

Do you have any questions?

I asked "what is the selection process, and why are there such random wait times?
They said "no idea... there is no process. It's terrible. Everyone is processed within two weeks but after that, no idea. Everyone will eventually be contacted"

The interview began with admin, a series on disjointed tech questions, then the HR questions. The atmosphere went from pop quiz, to interview, to conversation. They don't require very in depth answers for the tech questions. I had answers for all questions asked of me, and my study was from boards like this and other interviewees.

Unfortunately I was unsuccessful.

Good Luck
