I'm also interested on the same subject. A few weeks ago some guys here including me received an e-mail informing that or "application will not proceed to the next stage". In my case after a couple of years waiting for an e-mail or call.

Common profile between us is age close or over 40. So I think this is the reason. I think this is nonsense. I can get the experience in 2-3 years as anyone, age gives you a good experience in decision making, and great results on my training. What makes me worst than a 25 years old? I will pay the same for my TR.

I'm also interested to know how can I reaply. Some people suggested to create a new one but there's no way to delete the profile from the CAE web site.

Regards!

Hi guys,
I'm 36 (this year 37) with no previous experience in aviation, I've just finished my training and I'm gonna do the assessment in a few weeks.
So, in my case age wasn't a factor.

Cheers!

Do you have to pay 29500E for TR or are bonded for 5 years with the brand new deal ?

Hi folks,

I just get the call yesterday about my application, and it was really similar as it was describe previously

- quick presentation
- your licences and medical expiry date
- your flying hours
- tell me about your training
- did you have some fail during ATPL and practise
- she ask me if I was aware that everything next is going to be self-sponsored
- then she ask me if I was available for the assessment on the 3rd of April
- Gives me some explanations about the few e-mails that Iíll soon receive to confirm everything, which I get within 20 minutes.

So know I would like to book a simulator session in Dublin, is anyone got some feedbacks from Upilots like:

- Is there some difference with their sim and the one which is use by Ryanair for the assessment, in terms of power setting, attitude setting, instruments and radio navigation display Ö
- Can we manage to have a session as close as we expected for the big day Ö

Cheers.

Do any of you have any information about if they are calling guys who applied to the APC course? I applied in the beginning of February, and received the "You can expect the phone call soon" e-mail back in 3weeks, but since then nothing really happened. Should I apply to the new CAE TR programme or the APC is still an option?

I'm glad to hear that. If age is not the reason I don't know why I never got a call. I applied with other school friends with similar profiles and all are already hired but me.

I was thinking about deleting my aplication and reapply. Some people suggested this. Maybe I'm at the bottom of the stack. But there's no way to delete it from the web site.

Regards!

Hi guys. I did an interview with ryanair in December but was unsuccessful. Examiner had a real issue with the fact I had an American logbook, said it was invalid. Did my training in Florida but it was EASA approved training. Anyone had something like this happen or know what I can do to solve it?

Hi,

I'll be in your Course. Glad to see I will not be the only German there!
Do you know if there is some facebook group for the course already or anything?
