Also the F/O pay in Ryanair is based on the hours on type, so what you are saying that cadet with 0 hr starting will be on the same salary, makes no sense at all?
Just check all the info in the forum. You still have the option for pay for the full type rating or the bond (you pay 5000 and a have a 5years bond). As all ryanair pilot you start with the lower payrate which increase after 1500hr flying for them. Instead of doubt and questioning everything that was said from people that already work there try to use all the good info on this forum to get the job if that is what you really want

Hi!

I applied on May 15th, I got he Training request confirmation email the same day.

2 days after on the 17th I recieved a new email just saying "RYR application unable to proceed". They stated that they had reviewed my application and that it had been unsuccessful on this occasion.

Have anyone else gotten this response.
I am 27 years old, have 300hrs, No resits, highest grade on both MCC and JOC.
I was at an assessment at RYR in July 2015 but was unsuccessful.

Does anyone know what the problem is and what you could do? I have heard about quiet many that have been called to a second assessment.

Thanks for the help!

The previous application in 2015 was before they changed the system, the old account is gone so therefore I did a new account now. Very strange🙄

Cool

Hi all,

I've had my assessment this Thursday (May 24) and successfully passed. I will post a breakdown of my assessment process.

Dates:

Initial application: March 16
Application incomplete e-mail: April 19 (missing docs added April 20)
Application complete: April 23
Phone call e-mail: May 3
Phone call itself: May 7
Assessment day: May 24
Positive e-mail: May 25

I have stayed at the Premier Inn, it's a very nice hotel with a big comfy bed and just a 10-minute walk from the Ryanair building.

I went to Upilot on a 3-hour session the day before my assessment, and I have found it to be very good preparation - the guy is very nice and helpful, and will show you almost everything you need to know and which parts you need to prepare a bit better for the assessment day.

We came to the Ryanair building at about 7:50am, and we were greeted in the lobby by an older captain, who was our assessor for the day along with another captain. He showed us around a bit, made jokes with us constantly and all in all was a helpful and charming guy. There were 8 of us up for assessment.
As usual we had a briefing about the sim and the whole process. After that we were paired up for the sim (quite randomly, no apparent criteria for it) and were given our charts for the day (Liverpool). We were given about 20-30 minutes to brief with our partners for the sim session.

My partner and me were the first in the simulator. We did the WAL2T SID (amended to 5000 ft) and the ILS 27 approach in Liverpool. I was PM first. First we did some accelerations, climbs, descents and turns and then we had a toilet fire as an emergency. We declared Mayday, decided to return to Liverpool and request vectors for ILS 27 (always try to make it easier for yourself!), but the ATC radar was down so we had to do the full procedure. During the holding we were asked to accelerate and climb back to 5000 feet because of another aircraft in distress, but instead requested to make an immediate approach from the holding which was granted. So we did a quick briefing for the approach, intercepted the ILS from the base turn and landed successfully.

When I was the PF, it was almost the same but without an emergency, instead of that we were asked to point our location on the ILS chart, and were repositioned to intercept the localizer and shoot the approach.

Both me and my partner weren't very happy with how we did in the sim, because our MCC communication could have been better, and I was occasionally struggling to keep some speeds and altitudes while flying, and I was oscillating left and right a bit when intercepting the localizer, though I managed to stabilize myself on the approach eventually and make a decent landing.

Our assessor was helpful in the sim, often told us what we needed to be more careful with, and what to do differently. Remember, you control the speed with your thrust setting, and the rate of climb/descent with pitch on approach. In a prop I was taught the opposite and because of that was struggling a bit but got the hang of it eventually.

Many people here say that CRM is the thing the sim part is all about, but while it obviously is important, they do want to see how you fly the damn thing as well.

After the sim, we had the interview. It was quite simple and a nice chat. The HR questions came first, and were mostly standard. After that I was asked by our assessor why he didn't see good communication on the sim. I answered new partner, new aircraft and short time for briefing because we went in first. He told me then we should have asked for more time to brief the whole flight, and not rush it, and said it was a good learning experience nevertheless. Rest of the tech questions were pretty much the usual, nothing you can't already find on here. Some things about my MEIR aircraft (DA42) and the 737 (number of seats, generators). Just be yourself, answer honestly, study the tech questions well and you shouldn't have problems on the interview.

Anyway, after I left the building I wasn't very happy with my performance in the sim, and thought I was likely to fail because of it. But the next morning I was hit with the good news - safe to say it made my (and my family's) day

I don't know about the overall success rate, but on a daily basis it is quite random I think, I heard about a day where there were 16 people and no one passed.

Hey guys, I wanted to ask if it's necessary to finish APS MCC course? I mean, I'll finish MCC course in couple weeks and I thought about paying for JOC course next. Do they view MCC + JOC differently than APS MCC? It kinda sucks paying another 5k euro..., especially when I'll have finished MCC soon. Do you recommed any aviation school where JOC would be good preparation for ryanair assesment?
