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.

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?

Thanks for sharing - APU Limits on the 737CL, isn't that a bit much if you haven't flown a 737 before?? I think of myself as having a quite good aviation knowledge (also in details like this one), but I never thought of reading about APU limits

Absolutely not... am i better than them?? By a mile and a half, but more importantly i know i would make a better a job at the TR and at the line but like i said, depends a lot with the asessor and your couple. So maybe they were lucky... and that also counts.
In any case if you wanna talk in private specifics ill be glad but i wont discuss the issue further in this thread. You probably will have a second chance with them. Sadly im 31 and that is very improbable in my case.


Congrats to those who passed and enjoy it. Must be a blast flying a 737 with 160 hours total.
At least you're modest.

Hi, this is a quick feedback of my assessment last week.
By the way if anyone is starting on the 7th of May in Amsterdam, pm me !

Applied : 20/01/2018
First mail : 12/02/2018
Phone call : 15/02/2018
Assessment : 08/03/2018
Positive answer : 13/03/2018

Technical :

The technical assessor took my logbooks, and started to have a look through them.
I was integrated but I did a PPL before.
Unexpectedly he started to ask questions about aircrafts I flew for my ppl 5 years ago ! (Socata Rallye, Robin DR400).
He first asked me how to differentiate them if they were both parked next to each other.
As one of them has slats, he started to ask me about it.
Why slats, how were they operated.
We then talked about ailerons, and why differential ailerons.
Type of engine, how the carburetor works, what is the danger associated to it and why.
That was pretty much it.

Hr :

Then the HR assessor asked me to quickly introduce myself.
Why Ryanair ?
What new lines did Ryanair opened the previous week (Middle East) ?
How many aircrafts ?
Expansion/development plan (always getting better 5 program + 240ac in order)
That was it and they asked me if I had any questions.
That was really straight forward, and I was out in about 15 minutes.

The Sim :

After 30mn break, my partner and I jumped in the sim.
As I had experience on the 737 and my partner hadn't (A320 guy), I thought it was sensible to go PF first so he could see.
The assessor quickly briefed us again, and we briefed. We took off from EMA out of RWY27 via TNT2N dep. he vectored us out of the sid after a few minutes and I did some gh.
Level, descending, climbing turns.
Then senior cabin crew member came nearly screaming in the flight deck and wanted to talk to the captain only (PF). I said stby twice and gave controls to my PM. Gave him a SA update and talked to the cabin crew. Heart attack on board.
Sim got frozen at that time.
Ran a DODAR with my PM, let ATC know that we were coming back to EMA for a radar vectored ILS to land, ready to commence in 10 minutes.
Started to set up everything, briefed my PM, and when I was going to do a NITS to number one, ATC started to vector us. My PM read back, but I immediately called them back saying that we weren't ready.
Did the NITS, and when I was going to do a PA, the assessor called it completed.
I took back controls, we got radar vectored on a quite long final, landed of it.

We swapped seats. Exactly same thing but different abnormal : Destination closed due to bomb threat.

Besto of luck guys !!
