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.
Skyhigh's opinion to uPilot isn't very neutral. Here's another opinion. Just fyi...
I went there too and cannot recommend them enough - you don't need to be a pilot to be good at preparing you for an assessement. Flying is only a part of the assessement and of the preparation; briefing pack, MCC, briefing, tips/tricks, tech questions - all of this is covered by uPilot and tailored to the airline.

Highly agree with @flyfan. I don't know if our opinion is neutral or not, but it's the opinion having been through the sim prep and interview successfully. Absolutely no reason for the bad publicity for uPilot, he is very effective in gearing you up for the interview. Of course, it is up to you to do the rest.

Btw, anyone else for CAE1805 in AMS?

First application May 2015. Unsuccessful

Second application. Created new account with CAE in January 2018.
Confirmation of completed app 13/3/18
Email to confirm call within 14 days 15/03/18
Call received 28/03/18.
Assessment 11/04/18
Positive email 13/04/18

I have seen people ask can you apply a second time. I did and was successful. HR asked me what happened the first time and I was just honest with them,fresh out of flight training, went in to confident and cocky.
Asked had I applied elsewhere and that was really all from HR.

Tech questions

Engines on BE76
Landing gear on same, AC or DC hydraulic or electric. How do you extend in emergency.
How many emergency exits in the cabin of 737 800
How many passengers 737800 and MAX

Nothing that hasnt been asked before. Interview was very relaxed had a good laugh about past experience.

Stay calm know your IR aircraft inside out and you will be fine.

Best of luck

You don't get disqualified per se, your original application will be the only valid one. Any duplicates will be ignored (as clearly stated in the FAQ screenshot).

Smile CAPTAIN ASSESSMENT INFO

Hi all

Does anyone know what the assessment entails for DE captains? I have an interview next month and it seems all the sites that prepare your for interview only focus on helping cadets and first officers.

Also, I am curious about the NDB approaches that is talked about. Is that an NDB only approach? And if so, do you fly it manually? Or on FMC/CANPA on autopilot? Or Raw data but on Autopilot? I have to admit the prospect of doing that in raw data (in any form in 738) scares the #$%^ out of me. ;-)

Thanks

Anyone on FR1810? I have made a Facebook group but unable to post the link due to being new on the forums. Search for "FR1810 - Ryanair Stansted Type Rating Course"

uPilot review

Hi guys,
I wanted to share my feedback on uPilot.

I went there on March, the day before the assessment, I bought the 3 hours package.
The guy was very professional and friendly.
We went through many questions you might expect at the assessment, either HR and technical.

I found the sim part extremely helpful, he gave me tips and hints throughout the session, letting me note them down when needed. We did the assessment profiles, briefings, and emergencies included.
We repeated all the parts that we deemed necessary to.

As for the sim yoke, frankly it was difficult.
Not because of the missing feedback, c'mon not so many flight schools have a feedback on the sim yoke.
In my opinion the problem was something to do with the springs inside the yoke system. It didn't have an equilibrium point, i.e. it was very difficult to trim and keep it there.

It turned out that since I had to focus hard on the attitude during the prep, the following day at the sim it went smoother than expected (at least the a/c handling).

I passed the assessment and in either case I would absolutely recommend uPilot for the prep. Very high quality / cost ratio.

If they fixed the yoke it'd be excellent!

Good luck fellas.
