If yes, PM me. It could be great to have a group.

I cannot send you a PM for some weird reason (maybe you don't have the correct email privacy settings).

Here's the group we created a while ago for the CAE1803 in AMS (just erase the spaces in the url, I cannot post links)

Cheers!

So, in my case age wasn't a factor.

Cheers!
Thank you for the words of encouragement. I won't be able to afford the training until I'm into my thirties, so, to see yourself experiencing success at a similar age group strikes confidence into my own belief about my future chances.

Quick feedback from my assessment.
Most of it is as a lot of other people described, so I won't go into detail, but I will mention what surprised me.

In my sim I was at east midlands, cleared to join the hold for the approach.
I brief PM to do a parallel entry as I have to set up, but I decide to help him out since we got cleared when we where really close and I didn't have time to brief him properly on the entry. Therefore I configure on the turn and outbound leg.
During outbound leg, I get smokes in the cabin, and this is che chicken and egg situation.

I had 2 choices:
A. Ask another hold, do a full DODAR/NITS, and then complete the race-track procedure
B. Continue on the outbound which being a racetrack leads to approach, and basically skip dodar and nits.
What I did: I replied the cabin crew "I will be back to you if there is time, but expect an emergency landing with evacuation on rwy" (so I didn't nits or dodar berofre that).
I Checked the aircraft was configured and took control, briefed PM on the remaining outbound leg and asked "are you familiar with this approach?" he said yes, so I gave basic info like inbound course, ils ident and calls i expected him to do, no time to brief go around and again, no DODAR, i just asked him if he agreed landing soon was best.
We went late for the turn, like 3nm late on the procedure and did not notify tower in the heat of the moment.
Intercepted ILS, pretty clean glideslope and landing.

The instructor looked pretty disappointed after this, and I didn't pass.

I chose this because they say "Treat it as a real flight", therefore I did what I would do again and again: save the passengers and don't stay 5 minutes holding with smokes which might choke, poison or burn the aircraft. I got down in 3 minutes making a dirty-ish procedure and reducing crm to minumum.

But since it is wrong, maybe somwoene doing the assessmene in the future wants to try and hold, do all the dodar process and land. He might then object that you wasted time, it's a catch 22 situation in my opinion, but that's all I have to say.

Apart from this, he didn't talk much at all during the sim, no instructions on pitch/power, he expected us to be on the ball and fully proficient without any help.

Departure was non standard clearance, turn during level off and he gave us accelerations, but nothing you wouldn't expect in an assessment.

Hope it helps.

.
At RYR you must always do PIOSEE and NITS briefing. If the plane crashes in to the mountain, or in this case simply disintegrates, so be it! Planes can't fly without briefings, briefings and more briefings.

Good luck with your assessment. Just out of curiosity, when did you apply?

I sent my application on 9.3.18 and haven't heard back yet.

Hello

I have a question about something I saw in the sky instructor. It says, you will have to have one hour logged of ME in the last 6 months? Does this still apply? It doesn't say that in the CAE webpage..

Just to inform you, I applied on the 7th of March( 2nd time after the closure of the APC program) and still only received the "application completed" e-mail last week.

Hi guys,

I applied to Ryanair aprox a month ago. One week later i got an email from them saying were interested in my application and to update my documents.
Yesterday I finished uploading all documents and I replied to the email to let them know.
Today they emailed me "...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"
So i guess they are not interested anymore...
Someone else received this email?

Greetings!

I guess it is included in every single mail from them, just as a reminder. It does not mean that they are not interested in your application but that they won't notify you if you are not selected to the next phase.

Got the call today. My medical expires next month (28/04) so they asked me to take the medicals again (I'm doing them next week) and then send an e-mail when I have the new certificate.

A bit ridiculous, lol.

Hello,

I will go to the assesment in the next weeks to Dublin, its my first time, its not impossible, complete all the documents, even if you have more than 30 years.

Which accommodation is better Premmier Inn or Travelodge? Really interested in transport shuttle from the Airport, I haveīt stayed before at Dublin.
Internet wifi is important, clean of bathrooms and to have near ways to have cheap food. I had listened about a Supermarket LIDL nearest to Travelodge, is that Correct? (with google and tripadvisor it seems better Premier Inn about transport-internet-clean, but i dont know really, because here i see different).


I had to ask to lot of pilots and coleagues about the documents to upload to CAE website(it could take days or weeks to have all the documents from flight schools if you didnīt had please be sure to have before apply flight school reports-MCC...), if you havenīt got any one, CAE will advice you .
PDFs must be reduced of size and could be with some pages (with different sides or parts of required documents).

They are very kind at phone, call about 1 month after aply correctly, few days after e-mail for near call, it`s part of the interview for checking your english level.

There is an important amount of documents for those that have modular ATPL frozen, even you need legal translators for your other titles...when you have confirmation you have again to complete more details in 4 pages...


Well im so nervous, and excited, I have prepared typical ACE book with some questions from the webs, that are similar to those that you show here, and expect that some hours on 737Simulator will help, expect to practice really more than 10, because with less than 10 you have a risk to fail the simulator, in my case MCC was on other kind of aircraft.

In my case i dont have money for type rating, but i have saved for accomodation in Type rating that takes 3 months theory+simulator, and other expenses(perhaps 5000-7000 euro you need? it seems a lot 10k that I have read before), normally banks could lend you the money with the contract of Ryanair in your Hands.

Good luck for every one!, and please advice me if you go in next weeks to Dublin via MP, I think that its the best choice for a begginner pilot to start at Ryanair in Europe.
