Hello guys,

Long time follower of this thread and my first post in the forum.

After finishing the APS MCC in Simtech last June I made the application for Ryanair a few weeks after, just when they were about to close the cadet program. I got the online assessment email in September, and got positive feedback in November. Since then, no updates so far, just the talent pool thing.

Has any of you guys in the same situation applied to Lauda cadet program at the same time? I am afraid they cannot longer consider my application to Ryanair DAC after doing this. What do you guys think?

P.S. Havenít heard anything from Lauda yet.

Hello everyone,

As I planned to get my UPRT soon, I wonder if any of you applied recently to Ryanair and got an interview ( within last 2 months ) ?

Or did anyone apply and got any news related to Lauda instead ?

thanks in advance

does anybody know what you put into the english language proficiency section of the CAE portal when you have a level 6 and nothing other than your licence to confirm?

How do you know? have RYR contacted you?
And just for the sake of my own interest; why have they opened again? Per my understanding, the MAX hasn't been approved yet, right?

Regards

Can confirm the process has reopened. The CAE website is now actively seeking applications rather than the expressions of interest they were welcoming over the last few months. Having completed a Ryanair Mentored APS last year, I successfully completed the Ryanair assessment this week.

Well it would be expected that they have opened up. Logical, the inevitable loss of aircrew due to normal circumstances means the tap needs turning on. With 400 plus aircraft and once the Max flows then their expansion will demand new recruits as well as the flow of cadets which demonstrates their operational foresight. Can't say they aren't commercial and have control of their five or seven year company plan.

Of course I agree, but rumors are now that the MAX is being delayed until summer (or even autumn), so I just have a hard time understanding why they would open up now.

well they didn't get the 30 max aircraft they expected last year and ended up having a surplus of 300 pilots. they still have people leaving and the number of aircraft they own hasn't gone down so the maths says they still need over 500 pilots annually just from retirements and people leaving.

As I can see CAE website is not requiring to upload any document regarding UPRT. I have applied few days ago. Does anyone know situation with UPRT? Do we need to have it before assessment or ir can be done after succesful completion?

Regards.

Once the assessment is passed successfully, when does Ryanair require you to pay the €10K?

Does anyone know if they recruit if you are type rated on different aircraft? I have just finished my ATPL integrated and type rated on A320, any chances to be invited for the assessment?

APS MCC

I know itís been mentioned before quite a bit, but are there any more views or opinions about the best APS MCC provider (Simtech, VA, Sky4U, etc...)!?
Itís quite an investment to make, but I presume that those 40hrs will stand by you for any assessment and not just Ryanair.

I attended Ryanair Cadet assessment last week in Dublin, and while I had a UPRT certificate - the others were just told to make sure to have it complete prior to TR.

An enjoyable day had up there actually, a really nice group of guys being assessed (we all passed), and the assessors were really friendly do the best they can to keep you calm. Started out with a brief on the simulator and some pointers for during the sim. We were given the day's plates EGGP WAL2T SID and NDB/ILS R27 and had time to brief these with our sim partners. For my flight as PF it was:
- WAL2T SID climbing 5000'
- General handling raw data with climbing/descending, turns and speed changes to get a feel for the pitches (most important thing to remember is nail the pitches)
- Steep turns (45 degrees, 1 either way).
- Cleared direct LPL NDB then QDM intercept.
- Call from cabin that there is an uncontrolled cabin fire, and after MAYDAY, advised by tower that radar was u/s so it would be self positioning for full procedure
- PIOSEE, and setup for approach while inbound LPL.
- Straight into the base turn for ILS27.

With my sim partner as PF it was mostly the same apart from a turn onto a given heading instead of the SID, and an issue that meant tower called us back to land at Liverpool, again full proc 27.

Then with the interviews, again really chilled out, the assessors had a nice chat with you and keep you at ease. HR questions were the standard
- Hardest part of training?
- Where did you train? Why did you choose there?
- Why Ryanair?
- How soon would you be willing to start?
- Why do you want to become a pilot?

The technical questions started with pointing at a picture of the 737 (showing the starboard side):
- Why is the tail not anti iced?
- Tell me about the hydraulics?
- Where is the alpha vane in this photo?
- What is the green indicator aft of the forward door?
- Tell me about the APU?

A couple of days later, I'm really happy to say that I received the positive email and I'm now waiting for my start date. Really looking forward to it!

Best of luck to anyone involved in the process!
