Did any of you attended an APS/MCC? Is is true that applicants with an APS have priority during the selection process over those only MCC?

You might get a slight edge, but simply because the APS is done on the very same simulator Ryanair uses for their assessments... So you will be familiar with the layout and confident in your ability when going in...
Apart from that, I don't see any advantage, the assessment could actually be harder if you have the APS, because they will expect more from you and give you more complex failures as opposed to the "normal" assessment, where you only have to demonstrate very basic handling skills, since you are unfamiliar with the aircraft and they simply can't expect you to perform perfectly.

The most important thing is COOPERATION with your partner and problem solving. They will teach you how to fly a 737 on your type rating, so that is not the priority for the assessment.

Briefings, CRM, TEM and handling of non-normal situations are the only things that matter...

Hi Guys,

Anyone on the CAE1831 course in Amsterdam?
Introduction starts 25 FEB 2019 in EMA.
There is a facebook group, search for CAE1831 Ryanair.

I did the APS-MCC, Ryanair themselves states that:
«Applicants holding a CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION OF APS MCC-TRAINING in accordance with AMC2 FCL.735.A
-Will be given preference during selection
-Will be at a distinct advantage in the interview and assessment process.»

I know that a great percentage of the people with the APS-MCC have had a successful assessment, I do however not know how they compare to candidates with MCC/MCC+JOC, so I can´t tell for sure. Until now the amount of candidates holding APS-MCC has been limited, but I imagine this will change with time.

Anyway I would highly recommend doing the APS-MCC if you don´t already have completed a MCC course.

Thank you for your feedback!

I've seen that part on the Ryanair application page but we will never know if Ryanair actually gives preference to APS candidates on list. We'll never know.
Can I ask you wich flight school you choose for the APS?

APS MCC

I think it helped me a lot in the interview, having a APS MCC. It seemed both the assessor(s) and I enjoyed the experience, in that I handled the pressure well and they therefore had a easy life!

Could anyone who has had the online assessment recently give any insight into the atpl questions asked (30 in 10 mins).

Are they similar to the atpl question banks? Do they contain calculations/graph type questions etc or is it one sentence answers to questions?

Its been a while since I did my atpls and was wondering how much detail I have to revise i.e. going through 1000s of questions on the question banks again

Questions are random from pretty much all the subjects. There are no complex questions or questions requiring calculation, only theoretical ones. It's an ultimate sprint and in my opinion they are not really assessing your knowledge with this one, but your ability to manage your time effectively. You got 20 seconds per question, so once you finish reading all the answers, you got maybe 1-2 seconds left to decide. If you have doubts and are deciding between 2 answers, just "roll the dice" and pick one, because otherwise you won't be able to finish in time.

And don't worry. Requirement to pass this one is nowhere near 75% as it's on the ATPL's. I would say its around 40% AT HIGHEST... So don't waste your time going through that huge 15.000 question bank again.

It's a similar story when it comes to the online "interview". They don't expect you to give the perfect answers. They are actually assessing your english language fluency/skills...

Before they introduced this "stage 1 online assessment", about 20% of candidates that got invited to the interview in Dublin failed their assessment, simply because their english wasn't good enough. They wanted to reduce that number, so they came up with this "online test".

Can You give me some tips, how to prepare? What they asking about.


Hi,
I finished this part and passed.

First 5 exercise was like a video game, quite easy. I think no needed special preparation.

Then ATPL it was multiple choice, but time was limited- 30 questions in 10 minutes. So You have about 20 second on each.... and it was a normal ATPL question like on an exam. Sometimes reading a question and answers takes about 20 seconds. Last 5 questions was blind shooting.

And last part: video interview. You read a question and have 30-60 sec for it and preparation. Then You need to talk lil bit.
Prepare standard HR questions like: Why RYR? Your strenghts. Tell me about You aviation career etc.

Good Luck Guys!

HI! How much time after the online assessment did you get an answer from CAE! I did it the 20th of dec and still no answer so far... :/

Thanks !

A week or so for me, and if you count in Christmas holidays, I'm sure you'll hear something by January!
Best of luck!
