Is there a clause in your contract that guarantees you a position once you competed your training?

I was told there is a guaranteed interview (and not the job), since you have to pass an assessment before you are admitted in the program in the first place. Same for just the APS-MCC at one of their providers.
​​​​​​It makes sense to me.

Nope, there’s no guarantees at all until you have attained 500hrs on type and moved from a Second Officer contract. If anyone tells you otherwise, they’re either naive or liars, or both. Ryanair has no integrity so tread carefully. That said, the market is about to change dramatically so consider every option at your disposal and don’t give up!

Ryanair employs cadets when there’s an expansion planned, like it did in the last few years.
They dont have to employ anyone regardless whether you have apsc or not and they probably wont now.

As a matter of fact, they just announced today that they will let go some 10-20% of staff in the coming winter due to surplus of pilots and no demand for flying due to Covid 19. Judging at this statement, they hardly be taking in more staff when they have too many..

Its a scary world at the moment, and lets hope things improve

With all that said above why are they still interviewing new cadets who are being told they have passed the first stage of the interview (video interview answering a few HR questions and a couple of tech questions)

Upon successful completion of the above they are being told they are onto the next stage which is a Sim assessment.

Any ideas what's going on with that if RYR are rumoured to be making cutbacks as are most other airlines

I might be wrong but I think that there will be a shift in balance between Lauda and Ryanair/Buzz/Malta air. Any fleet renewal or expansion with the 737MAX is off the cards for the foreseeable future. At the same time, some of the older 737-800s will probably be let go of as there won't be enough demand to fill the entire fleet for a year or two from now. At the same time, Lauda is well positioned to take over some profitable routes. It's got orders for the A320 and finding more close-to-new aircraft won't be an issue even on a short notice these days.

they can interview all they wont. Its a business in the end. Its keeping the flight schools aflot, their HR department and its still encouraging people to spend the money and train.

Passing an assessment and getting the job are two things millions apart.

You can stay in so called “pool” for 5 years, its no harm to anyone as long as you want to think that you’ve got the job and passed your assessment. But when will you actually fly?? Nobody knows. When things come, people like you will be willing to accept any conditions thrown at you, and possibly even volunteer to fly for free like many have done in the past and are still doing it. Its a race to the bottom

And what's the story with interview fees now? At what stage do you have to pay for your assessment? Is it just the sim or the online part as well? That could explain why there are still interviews going on even when recruitment isn't actually on the cards.

Why? Because it costs nothing to them. You pay the €55 fee and in return they have people one stage ahead should things move. But that's a big Should because they won't move for a long time.

My info is from experience, it was the same up until a few months ago.

You pay the online part €55 and have a few days to complete the assessment.
​​​​​​​Once successful they send you a link to pay €350 within 1-2 days and will schedule you at HQ

Sad indeed. Amazingly this thread has had 5 million views since it started- I sense much less for the future unfortunately.

And yet you are saying elsewhere that you are starting at FTE in September?

Really......?

He would have been lucky to have been issued with
a UK dog licence (as was) never mind a professional pilots licence.

That’s the attitude of some who want to get into a cockpit, it’s just sad, you need to have more sympathy

A visit to the Trick Cyclist is probably necessary.

Probably enough material would be generated for a complete conference?

I am just wanting to use your noggins more efficiently at this time 👍
You seem to get some perverse pleasure winding up those unfortunate trainees caught up in the tsunami. You think it is funny? It is not.

Your knowledge of how selection works at FTE is wide of the mark, if not non existent.

FTE had marketing days monthly until the Royal Decree required them to stop activities on 15 March.
Given what was the long waiting list then, a September 2020 start date was perfectly feasible.
They start again next week, albeit it gently with C-19 protocols.

If anyone needs to use their “noggin” it is you. You might even consider an apology given your thoughtless comments made elsewhere.

Let me guess, you are not sorry at all.....

New Applications

Is CAE no longer taking the new applications? The link on RYR website goes to another institute instead?

also theres no details on there of the bond that's usually required, is it still 5k or 10k?
