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?
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 .....

I have a question, I read about they are offering a bond to cadets who are not on APC, is there any truth?

Hi all,

Do people generally recommend Upilot for the sim assessment prep? Currently undecided between them and Simtech.

Thanks

Hope so, because that implies Ryr is paying (a part) of the TR

But I haven't heard these stories from new cadets.

Hi all, I was on the CAE website and I have entered the dates of the MEIR wrong as I only wanted to check what docs are to be uploaded, now I have a training request with wrong dates, any idea if I can edit this? I have also contacted the Admin but no reply... shall I call CAE? Thanks!

I am planning to apply to Ryanair with total flying time of 200 hrs and all other requirements. Am I having any chances to be invited for an interview ?

I have the APC bond contract in front of me, I would have accepted it if not for getting a job on a legacy carrier at my home town.

Nothing is deducted from your pay as you are suggesting. The bond is effectively for 6 years and the longer you stay the less you have to pay to Ryanair if you quit. After 6 years you pay nothing. There is also a clause and a few hints and provisions to indicate, that they are actually expecting you to take a command upgrade and become an employee of Ryanair after 4 years, in which case your ltd is liquidated and you owe nothing to nobody. It is a good deal, especially if you're young and don't have anything to tie you down to a specific place

No, never. I think is age related as Iím over 40.

Thanks for the information. It seems so, as Iím over 40 too. All my friends on the 20s, 30s have been called. So the requirement ďunder 65Ē donít seems to be correct.

Itís a shame, as Iím sure people with 40 can have the same skills, and some times even more, and in a couple of years have good experience for the company.

I sent an email to mcginleyaviation asking about the scheme, giving some brief background of myself, why I want it etc. That was months ago. When all hope was lost they came back to me asking to send in all sort of paperwork. Then silence again for weeks. Then a phone interview, then assessment just like already mentioned here, that part is exactly the same.

Then I got sent a contract, but because I was doing two other assessments beforehand I got an offer from other airline and I took it.

I wouldn't like to release sensitive details about the contract as I'm not sure if I can be held liable, the contract does specify it is confidential. Pay wise it is the roughly the same as mentioned on ppjn for McGinley contracts except there's no 30 euro per SBH, its less after release of the safety pilot but after line check it is what's stated on PPJN for McGinley all the way to the top - it's exactly the same

as for the general feeling of the contract - like I said, for Ryanair I think it's the step in the right direction and it gives people a chance. If you're not comfortable with the financial penalties that might result form you quitting early - don't take it.. or.. remember, it is LTD after all.. as in Limited Liability.. Announce your company bankrupt and there's sticks all they can do, it is the company that will owe them money, not the individual

Good evening everyone,

I've received this email from CAE RYR cadet program.

#Thank you for completing your application.

Please note we will only contact candidates who are found suitable and selected by the airline to proceed to the next step in due course.
Kind regards,

CAE

Did someone received some communication like this email?
Application sent in April 2017. Never received any news before.

Can one take part in both assessments: APC and normal?
I am waiting for my APC assessment date to be confirmed by McGinley but I also received the email from CAE.

Personally, I am open to either option.

Think youíre mentioning me. Yes, I worked as a Cabin Attendant for four months last year. Thatís why I got the more specific questions about that. I had a total of 173 actual hours.

I applied for the APC a month before my MCC, then when I got my MCC I applied to CAE.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting a possible call for the APC but was waiting for the email from CAE. Eventually, I might get both (APC assessment yet to be confirmed and got the email from CAE only yesterday) and if possible I'll do both assessments.

By the way, having an MCC does not disqualify for the APC but the majority of the recruitment will still be done via CAE.

the only time you are paid a lower salary is in that period between your safety pilot removal and your line check - which is what - 1 - 1.5 months? After that salaries are exactly the same

everybody cant be taking these deals simply because not everyone is offered one!

Guys the APC is a fantastic deal. I'd have love to have gotten it. Facing down 30K bank loan on top of your training dept isn't a nice thing.

6 year commitment is good no matter what age you are. Eventually during that time you'll likely get back to or close to your home base, you'll make command faster than anywhere else and potential for training roles.

Can not understand what the flack is about.
