They want "EASA approved Logbook with all flight hours logged (Please bring all original logbooks)". Not sure whether a print out could be considered as an EASA approved logbook. In doubt just check with them via email.

Thanks Kratz. I am not going to take any risk and will bring my paper logbook. First I need to ‘copy’ 150 flights unfortunately.

What's the APC assessment like compared to the traditional one? I have an assessment coming up soon.

The assessment should be the same, more or less..
The difference is that (in that day) there are only APC assessments, so there should not be anyone with a lot of experience and someone without.. The level is pretty much the same for everyone, but everyone comes from a good preparation let's say, as it's the flight school to choose them for this program.

PLUS, in case of positive feedback, you don't have to pay the TR, but the company pays for you and then they take from the salary every month.

Is there any truth that they are offering a bond to cadets who are not on APC?

Hello guys,
Congrats the ones are in!
I am worried about the age, right now, finnishing the CPL with 36 years old.
How old are you?
Any experience with age above 30?
Thanks!

I applied for the Ryanair program more than two years ago. Then applyed again when the web site changed, and requested to reapply and upload all the documentation. Never got any response e-mail or call.

A few days ago I received an e-mail from ATCAMS-Assessment Pilot Provisioning saying that "Your application has been reviewed, however, we regret to inform you that your application will not proceed to the next stage in the selection process."

I'm surprised to receive this, as I never heard of this kind of mails informing about the application not proceeding. I always heard of some people just waiting forever as I was.

Did someone received some communication like this?

Age not as important as it once was. I know three guys who got hired by ryanair in recent months who are between 35-38.

I'm not so sure about that. Finished my ATPL with almost 40. Did my MCC-JOC and applyed. All my friends from school have been called and hired. I never received any e-mail, or call for 2-3 years.

If you are referring to the black arrow on the top left corner of the plate, I would think so. True North and Magnetic North are depicted.

Hey guys,

I just received positive news that I can start at Ryanair later this year. Because this topic helped me a lot I thought I wanted to share my experiences, timeline and questions.

Applied: October 2017
Call: Half December 2017
Interview: Half January 2018

Overall the whole setting is quite personal and relaxed. A joke here and there, very friendly people.

Simulator Session
1st (PM): East Midlands TNT2N departure to 6000ft. Some normal turns, climbing and descending. Fly heading, point location on chart. DCT EME. Aft toilet smoke (DODAR/NITS), prepare for approach. ILS/DME RWY 27 at EMA. Landing.
2nd (PF): East Midlands to 2NM IEME left turn HDG 180 climb 5000ft. Some normal turns, climbing descending, accelerations and slowing down. DCT EME to join hold. Explain holding entry. Aft toilet smoke (DODAR/NITS). Fly outbound in holding over EME and then approach ILS/DME 27 (glideslope failure, continue on visual reference). Landing.

Technical questions
- What is decompression and how can you recognize a decompression?
- What are your actions as Cabin Attendant during a decompression? When are you allowed to help other passengers?
- To what altitude do we descent during an emergency descent? What if we fly near mountains?
- What do you need for thunderstorms to form? Name three things.
- Explain why thunderstorms can form and why these cloud types get so big.
- Would you fly through thunderstorms? Why not?
- What is a great circle and what is rhumb line? What is their difference? -
- When do we use great circles and when do we use rhumb lines? How do they loo like from a navigational point of view?
- What navigation systems does the Boeing 737 have?
- How does GPS work?
- How many seats does a Boeing 737 have?

HR
- Introduce yourself.
- Why did I choose the job as Cabin Attendant? Did I like it?
- Have you had any problems with passengers? How did you cope with it?
- What’s the hardest decision you had to make last recently?
- What’s the biggest achievement in your life so far?
- Tell a weakness.
- If you would loose your medical, what is your back up plan?
- If this doesn’t turn out positive, what is your back up plan?
- When can you start the Type Rating?
- Can you pay for your Type Rating and how?

Hello Dreamboy I received the same email ....
I applied 1 year ago and had no response until 2 days ago ....
I think it's a matter of "age" .... I'm 41 and I guess I'm too old for them....
I applied with 2 friend and they have been called within 2 weeks ....
they are 33 .....
