Feedback

Ryanair feedback
I want to say thank you for all the previews feeback it's an invaluable helps and now it's my turn to do it

Initial application 29.06
Application under review 5.07
Email regarding phone call 25.07
Call 07.08
Assesment 03.09
Successful 06.09

The day before the assesment I went to simtech for one hour in the brand new 737 800 same sim as ryanair and very good instructor he give me tips to pass the interview I will recommend you to do a sim session with Simtech

The Day:
First briefing with one of the assesor explaining the day and the sim nothing special to say about that.

I started with the interview the captain start to ask me question about me, where I did my training and on wich aircraft .
Then ask about the 737 how many hydraulics system? 3 system A B stand by

explain the anti ice system on the 737?
Electric for probe and windshield and bleed air from compressor stage 5th to 9th
Then simple math calculation such as crosswind sin 30 sin 60 and you travel at 120knt how long to do 40 nautical miles... very very simple if you are prepared.

Then HR she was really nice
she asked me about my cv and background .
What do you want to take the 5 years bond or the 29000 euro....
Where do you see yourself in 5 years ?
Why did you choose your flight school ?

That was it

For the sim it was Liverpool with wal 2t departure (it's an easy one )

I started as pm brief speak with your partner he had to follow the entire sid until leveling off at 5000 feet to wal vor some airwork rate 1 turn and accelerate to 250 then radar vectored for ils 27 décélération to 170 ( remember 210 first flaps 1 then 190 flaps 5 bug 170),
Sim freeze point on the chart where you are and brief the app . Then radar vectored for ils .

As pf i had the exact same thing until overhead LPL the assesor froze the sim ask me where I was and he advise me about a fire in the toilet, I asked my pm to hand control pass the mayday call and then TDODAR NITS full procedure and land.

Three days later finally the good news .
My advise is to prepare yourself well for the interview with this forum the ACE book and all other materials online like skyinstructor web site also book a sim prior your assesment again simtech was really good for me if you can afford it .

Best of luck guy's

Hey guys,

Do somebody has some pre-assessment ATPL questions as an example?
Is there a special topic to review?

Thank you

Assesment September 12th

Had my sim assesment on september 12th. John and Paddy were the assesors, I had John.

I started with then interview which took only about 15 minutes.
Standard HR questions about my current job, notice period etc.
Technical questions where mostly about my previous multi engine aircraft
-About the engine (manufacturer, BHp, critical engine)
-Anti icing systems
-Electrical system
And about Boeing 737
-Type of engines
-Anti icing systems
-How many seats
-How many emergency exits
-Recently flown with Ryanair?

Simulator
Pretty straight forward:
-WAL 2T dep. 5000 ft
-30degress bank turns
-Accelerate & decelerate to minimum cleanspeed.

Freeze the sim

Company call, have to come back to liverpool.
-Dodar / Nits!
-Where are you?
-Prepare and brief for ILS 27 at liverpool

Unfreeze the sim

-Decelerate to 170kts
-Decent 2500
-Overhead LPL 059 procedure ILS

I had an unstable approach, so made a go around.
Sim freeze, back on 3Nm final, good approach and a (not so good) landing.

Sim partner got exactly the same.

Good luck!

Received the email that I was succesfull today!

ATPL questions are completely random, all the subjects, some calculations, most questions are easy if you've recently quickly studied your theory, but a few were far fetched stuff that you tend to forget right after the ATPL exam. For the technical exercises no need to worry, they're relatively easy and you can practice as much as you want. the interview I had 3 questions. for each questions there was 20s of preparation and 1min to answer. I got why pilot? why Ryanair? What would you do if cpt doesn't follow SOPs? (my buddy got the same questions)
Make sure you don't send your application if you're not ready, cause you'll have about 7 days top to do it all when you receive the email for the assessment.
I'm applying as cadet btw

Hi guys,

Just wanted to leave some feedback regarding the assessment.

I did 2 hours the day before the assessment on the Boeing 737 simulator at Simtech with Pat Harris ( which i really suggest you do one day before you assessment, that guy really knows his stuff about the ryanair assessments and he will give you good tips)

Arrived at the Ryanair HQ at around 7:45, we sat around a table and were briefed by a guy named paddy about what our day would consist of.

I had the interview before the sim , and got asked a couple of HR question like, Why did you want to a pilot, what would you do if you don`t get your preferred base, What would you do if you decide to have a career change. Then the technical part, we talked briefly about the aircraft I was flying, what is a clear way, screen height and minimums. That was the interview part.

Then I had the simulator, we walked in and the assessor made us feel calm. I went as PM first and just basically gave my suggestions to the PF (His flying was excellent so there was not much I could say), when it was my turn as PF we did a the WAL 2T sid from LPL, accelerate, decelerate, 30 deg banks, where are you on the map, procedural approach ils and land.

Finished around 4 o`clock, and received the good news 2 days later and will be starting with the induction course on the 12th of NOV in EMA followed by the TR on the 12th of DEC in AMS. !

Study hard, be confident and good luck guys!!
