Transfer to Irish CAA

Can anyone confirm whether or not the requirement to transfer your UK Issued EASA licence to an Irish one is still in place?

Many thanks

Assessment info

Hi All

I thought I would share my experience from my assessment last week.

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

There is a group on fb called Ryanair Type Rating FR1809. I can't post the link because I don't have 10 post yets and I don't think you have the option to receive messages on PPRuNe activate it so can't send it to you. Would be nice to meet some people before the course starts so feel free to join!

Beware of the SIM at Simtech, it is nowhere near the one at Ryanair

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?
