Hi all,

I have applied on March 16th and uploaded all documents except the CPL and ME/IR results (didn't know they were mandatory until yesterday, thought just my license was enough). Today I have added the copies of my CPL and ME/IR results. I see that I have an option to remove ONLY those two files from My Documents on the CAE site, and I can't remove any of the other files (CV, ATPL results, license, medical etc.).

My question is: does that mean my application was already under review before I added the missing two documents, or the possibility to remove those docs doesn't mean anything?

I haven't had any response to my application yet, so I was wondering about this. I do know that they inform you if something is missing in your application, so I'm not sure about this.

You should maybe remove the Ryanair logo from the map on your website as it is misleading.
I’m not sure what rock you’ve been living under but Upilot are extremely highly regarded amongst people who have gone for ryanair assessments, including myself and a significant number of my colleagues. If you can’t fly the upilot sim then you shouldn’t be flying, end of story. The feel system in upilots sim has very little to do with how you perform in the ryanair assessment.

Even this thread alone, if you look back over it for the past number of years you will see the large number of recommendations and referrals from pilots who have used upilot for their assessment prep sessions and who have subsequently been successful at the ryanair assessment.

You keep recommending them which makes me think that you probably work there? If not, apologies!

I went to uPilot and didn't pass the assessment, my friends also went there and they did pass the assessment. Extremely helpful and friendly guy who knows a lot about the Ryanair assessment and I would go there again.

Read carefully, I did not pass the assessment yet I still suggest people visit him for the sim preparation because it does help.

I keep recommending because I hold them in such high esteem for ryanair preparation, as do many of my colleagues, as I have already mentioned.

As Iíve said already, itís not the upilot sim that causes pilots to fail the ryanair assessment, itís the candidates ability and performance on the day of their assessment. Bear in mind that lots of pilots pass the assessment with ryanair having completed their training anything up to five or six years previously, and have done very little flying in the meantime bar their renewals, and they pass the assessment having had no prep sessions beforehand. Which brings me back to my previous statement, itís not the upilot sim that caused you or you or friends to fail the assessment, itís your performance on the day of your assessment, and that performance is a reflection on your ability and how good of a pilot you are.

Application sent: 15/02-2018

Call recieved: 28/02-2018

Assesment day: 28/03-2018

Positive email: 30/03-2018



HR questions:



- Tell us about yourself

- Why do you want to join Ryanair?

- Strengths?

- Weaknesses?

- How did you prepare for the assesment?

- What did you least like about your pilot training?

- Would you choose the new or old contract if you suceed?



Technical questions:



- Why does the DA-42 have a t-tail?

- How many generators/alternators on 737?

- What leading edge flaps on 737? (krueger on inboard side and slotted slats on outboard side)

- What is wing loading and when would you want a high or low wing loading?

- What is aspect ratio?

- Any APU limitations on 737?

- How many seats in Ryanairís 737?

- How do you calculate stallspeed if you are given a Vref?

- Who is the boss of Ryanair?



Simulator:



Me and my partner were the last in the simulator. I started as PM and we flew a modified SID out of Liverpool RWY 27 (Straight ahead to 3 DME from IBQ then right turn to 360 climb and maintain 5000 ft.) A bit of airwork (climbs, descends, turns) nothing special. Then a full procedure for ILS RWY 27 go around, and then reposition on 10 nm final for a full stop.



When i was PF the simulator kind of broke down, and i had to fly the ĒwholeĒ simulator part without autothrust, heading bug, altitude bug or flight directors. I think i flew 15 minutes with no emergencies only a take-off, some airwork and then reposition on 10 nm final for full stop landing.



Good luck out there guys!

guys, as someone who was very close to this until recently, Simtech is a much better option where you will at least be prepped by a real pilot, in realistic conditions, Upilot prepped candidates have a much lower pass rate and it is real shame for cadets who are already paying €350 for the assessment, that they are not getting the prep expected. if you are thinking of wasting €400 going into something similar to microsoft flight sim, you are better off setting something up in your bedroom !

Thatís personal preference, some people choose to do it with no prep, others choose not to.

Dear friends,

I am B737 classic rated, only SIM Time, what kind of technical questions I can expect?

And what about the SIM, what they are expecting to see?

I will have an interview for cadet position.
Thank you for the help.

Best regards,

Fayaz Rasac

We continually strive to improve our service and would like to point out that this comment is contrary to the overwhelmingly positive response we have had preparing pilots for airline interviews over the past four years.
I had the same.. I also struggled with assessment, the day before I did upilot.. I must admit it was great training but without feedback on the yokes, I found out a day later that the Ryanair sim was too heavy... I did my assessment October 2017
