Hi guys,

I previously read that you are following a "DODAR - NITS" method to manage emergency or failure.

Could someone help me to precise what each letter correpond to ?

Thank to your appreciated help !

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
Potatoflying,
can you give an example or 2 of the types of calculation based questions please?
Cheers for the other feedback though. Good to know. 👍🏼

Hello Guys,

one question regarding the Ryan Assessment (Cadet, frozen ATPL)

I did my online assessment about 10 days ago. Now, I got an email from CAE, that my CV has been sent to Ryanair, and CAE wanna contact me, to discuss the further process, so I guess it means, I passed it!? They didn't refer to my online AC in any way.

I've never read here about this procedure (first online AC, then a phone call) so, what do they want to discuss in detail, any experience here?

Cheers
Marc

Romain
D - Diagnose (what is the problem)
O - Options (continue, divert, turn back... tell them all)
D - Decide (say which of the options you chose)
A - Allocate tasks (Usually this is where you would call ATC to update on the situation, call OPS, make pax announcement and call the Senior Cabin Crew. I hope I didn't skip anything)
R - Review (see if your actions have resolved the problem, if there are no further issues, etc. If something else comes up, run DODAR again)

Once cabin crew comes in, do a NITS to him (it should be very very short and to the point)
N - Nature of the problem (engine out, hydraulic failure, etc.)
I - Intentions (i.e. divert)
T - Time (ETA)
S - Special request (normal deplane, emergency landing, etc)

That's about how I was taught. Some people might do it differently.

How much time do you have for these questions? Do you have to do it with your mind or you have a pen and a paper? Is a calculator allowed?

Hello,

I got invited by Ryanair to Dublin. Just to make sure, before I pay the high fee, is it really a Ryanair Contract now (Cadet), and they are going to pay the full Rating?
When I applied, the discription said something like this but I had to tick "self sponsored" in the form to be able to continue.

How did you guys manage to get a total of 5 referees? They wanna have 2 until AC, and 3 additional after. I've only one Company, Im not sure if they going to do this, and the most of my friends are either not got with english. or they couldn't say as much about me, because we don't know each other for 5 years or more.

Cheers
Marc

30 questions in 10min. You can do whatever you want, even use google or a book (which you probably won't use anyway because time is very short). Calculator is actually advised

You'll be fine if you take someone who's known you for less than 5 years, most of my friends did that (if you're a young cadet who went straight to flight training you don't have much choice anyway). They don't pay for the full rating, they pay for most of it, you still have to pay 5kÄ and you have a 5 year RYR contract. The "self-sponsored" thing you had to tick was about your flight training, if you had to pay for it yourself, not for the TR.

Hi Guys,

Anyone know if Ryanair is calling for interview people with more than 35 years old with no previous experience?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Cheers,

Hi Guys,

I know there is some sound feedback for the online assessment in previous posts, but is there any chance anyone else has experienced any other HR questions. How long do you have to answer their questions? Also, any advise on how to prep for the ATPL style questions? Any extra feedback would be appreciated.

Cheers
G

​​​​​​You can go back to school and ask for references. I got my former english teacher to write a reference letter for me.

20s to prepare for the question, 1min to answer. Everyone I know had the same HR questions. For ATPL just do as many questions as you can from the books or a question bank.

Thank you guys for the answers.
And do any one know if they ask about the scores you got in the theoretical part of the ATPL in the selection process?
