I am not touched about uPilot and I'm not the owner of the place. I'm a satisfied customer, amongst many others. The sim prep was more than good enough in my opinion.

Mind you, my sim partner picked the wrong holding entry and despite I disagreed with his decision beforehand. He got the job, I did not.

I did not get the job maybe because my personality doesn't fit Ryanair according to their recruiters. Or maybe something else.

You won't learn to fly a 737 in a couple of hours and assessors know that 99% of the candidates have never flown one.

PS. Flying the 737 sim at Ryanair is a piece of cake. So easy and stable.

Don't feed the troll...

uPilot won't:
Teach you how to fly a 737 as he's no 737 pilot, instructor or whatever. (Though I never asked as I never had the feeling that this could be a necessary qualification for prep)
Have the same feel as Ryanair's 737 sim
Disappoint you.

uPilot WILL:
Prepare you for the assessment even before you're in Dublin
Show you tips and tricks to make your life easier at Dublin HQ
Sharpen your CRM skills
Do a test interview with you
Pick you up from your hotel
Be a nice and friendly guy

If you've got no feeling for flying an aircraft, then uPilot's sim won't do magic.
uPilot is a - as you can see on this thread - successful PREPARATION for the interview and what to expect - not how to fly a 737. But trust me: The Ryanair sim is really easy and stable, just trim it properly - that's the whole secret.

No need to create a second account, also because they can catch you fairly easily. Many people are having a second chance. Some say after 6 months, some say after a year. I'm waiting and keeping my profile updated.

Information on the 737-800,
I'm preparing for the technical side of the RYR interview, and wondering where is the best source to find information out on the 737 and its systems? google it or is there a good book.

i attended a pilot conference at Gatwick last month and spoke to some Ryanair Recruiters. They have informed me it is indeed a year (shouldn’t be earlier) to be called for a second chance. (hopefully!)

Just keep that profile updated as much as you can.

1 year since the last assesment I might guess ?
It is also true that they stop the cadet intake due to the lack of LTC ?

1 year since assessment. I have friends who are either attending within the next few weeks or have passed recently so I wouldn’t say it’s ceased for cadets.

The real thing is far easier to fly. Ironically.

They'll only ask you the basic things about it - Ceiling, Seats, Dimensions etc...everything else is common sense (f.e. how many generators are there...[One IDG per Engine, one generator for the APU, makes it 3 in total]), so I wouldn't worry too much about studying the systems in depth. But if you're interested: The Boeing 737 Technical Site
I'd recommend studying the systems of your MEP and/or IR plane - most probably they'll ask a few question about that. - In my case I got quite detailed questions on the electrical system of the DA42.

Good luck!

Hi All,

I just missed the call from CAE. Are we supposed to reply to "14 days" email? Or is there any other email address?

Thanks.
