Was kinda wondering this myself, got the email recently regarding updating documents so Iím assuming theyíll call soon. I will be out of the country for about 4 weeks shorty. If Iím not available for interview can I ask them for another date in a month or two to attend?

Hello guys!
Can you advise of how long it took from your CAE application to getting the e-mail and phone call, then how long between phone call and assessment booking?
Thanks a lot and best of luck!

Good Evening everyone,

I have my Ryanair assessment on the 23rd of January. I was wondering whether there is anyone on here with Jet time that has gone through the assessment that could maybe share his experience.

Is it any different from other assessments described here by out of flight school cadets?

thanks

Questions on your a/c

In regards to them asking questions on the aircraft you fly, will it be the twin you did ir on or more likely to be about a single i fly for a bit of part time work?
Cheers

Hi guys,

I did my CPL and Theoretical ATPL in a school, and the IR/ME in another school. I got the "flight school report" from those two flight schools.
However, I took my PPL in a third school previously. Does anyone know if they need a report from the school in which I took the PPL course???

Thanks a lot!!

I would doubt that. I think they are the most interested in ME/IR and MCC. Just upload those 2 files and you will get an email is the application is incomplete, but again, I don't think they would require a report for your PPL

If you have two school reports, you can merge the scanned copies with pdf merge and upload both of them as a single pdf file.
Also don't bother with the flight school report for your PPL. It's useless.

Hi everyone,

I am in Dublin on the 1st of february and I wanted to ask if you know what charts and what airports they are using for the simulator screening.
And does anyone know a cheap hostel close to the Ryanair HQ ?
Thank you very much!

When do they usually send successful emails? Is there any pattern?

from what I've heard from some friends it seems to be around 3-5 working days after the assessment.

For getting a call after application at CAE it varies greatly from 10 days to 3 months at the moment.

Just done the assessment. Nothing new to report, Sim and tech interview as described many times before.

HR interview felt a little different... No questions about why Ryanair, why they should employ you etc. Just questions about previous work, flight training, can you pay for type rating. Basically the kind of chat you’d have with a friend down at the local pub.

I’m guessing they’re desperate to get people onto TR courses because as of this week they are interviewing 12 people a day instead of the usual 8. I presume they’re assessing more people to get a higher number of assessment passes rather than lowering their standards to get more people through.

I got the impression that the sim is a big part of the assessment because it seemed there was little emphasis on the interview side of things...
If you ask me the tech interview is pointless because if they really wanted it to mean something they would at least spice up the tech questions rather than use the same basic ones listed over and over on this thread, winglets, seats on 737 etc.

In a nutshell I think they’re desperate to hire pilots but don’t assume this means they’re going to reduce the quality of the candidates they put through TR’s.

My sims partners friend was assessed recently only 11 months after failing their first FR assessment.
