Hello sammy spud! I am about to take the online assessment and I would appreciate if you could tell me of what it is about? I passed my ATPL 3 years ago and must be a lil rusty :/ Is there any subject they focus on ? Do they use the ATPL question bank ?
Thank you !

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

Ta
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!

Can anyone give me some feedback? I have applied in 2016 via the CAE Website > Program > Ryanair. I have first time passes with a high average and an integrated fATPL.
I regularly update my CV and information on the site, I have yet to be called by Ryanair, what gives?

You don't meet all the requirements?
You ain't current with your flying? (since you finished your training back in 2016)
Do you have the MCC?

You did not provide enough information. We can only speculate.

Done it recently and was expecting just HR questions but got one saying “Describe the electrical system of tour last aircraft”...
Although if Im not mistaken, theres an statement previous to that part that says the questions wont assess your knowledge but your language skills... Hope it helps!

A couple of people a have written me to ask questions. I'll happily answer, but I can't answer you if you don't empty your inbox. I believe it can only hold one message at a time.

Regards
