The MAX will not be certified by EASA until the end of this year, more likely - early 2021. So, expecting the first deliveries in or after Q1 2021 would not be unreasonable. Hopefully they will all come with cargo holds loaded with COVID-19 vaccines so that they actually have enough places to fly to quite frequently and on a cash-positive basis. Until the latter becomes possible, patience is king. This more or less explains why recruitment has gone silent for now, me thinks.

Any news?

Hello guys I applied for AFA Cadet pilots Ryanair in July. So far I haven't received anything from them but I know that some people including my friend who did receive a response. He had online assessment and passed. Im still waiting for that
What are your thoughts? Any opinions ?

Hi I applied back in March and haven't received anything from them. Have you got a EASA licence or a UK licence as from 1st January everyone that applys for Ryanair need a EASA licence if there is a no deal. Also do you have a APS or MCC.

Seeing most of their crews are either on Part time rosters or unpaid leave, I would think it will be a while before recruitment starts again in any meaningful way

Sort of good news. Ryanair are expecting to start training cadets in 2021 as they expect to be busy operating a full schedule in 2022, but we're back to the old type rating scheme. I think the bond deal was a better deal for both parties involved.

There goes my chances of flying for Ryanair. I really can't afford €30000 for the type rating, it was ok when it was only €10000. It would be ok if they could bond you and take it out your wages over so many years.

Did I say that this would happen some months ago? Yes, I did. It caused unexplained keyboard rage in some participants back then, but there we have it.

It's not the end of the world though. Those who applied pre-2016 and had to self-fund the type rating in the very same way mostly did so by means of a bank loan. Once you've passed the assessment and you have an offer, this shouldn't be too hard to obtain if you have a good credit record. After all, you're entering a stable job with a high earning potential. If you can save up for a fraction of the sum and top up with a loan, that's even better. Many people have trodden this path and been successful.

All down to Brexit negotiations and if there is a deal. Ideally the CAA will remain part of EASA as there is no benefit to either party being split apart.

Ryanair know exactly what they’re doing, demand for jobs vs demand for pilots is huge so they’ll take advantage.

Same thing will happen in 4-5 years when other airlines begin recruiting and they’ll find themselves short again and scramble to reduce the cost.

I saw few moths ago an article where UK CAA stated that they will leave EASA anyway, correct me if I am wrong

I think you are right, the decision is probably already made to leave EASA

Iím sorry but Iím not convinced the CAA want to do that, this is on the UKCAA website right now and wouldnít be on there if they definitely wanted to leave.

30 000Ä its impossible amount for me. Due to covid I've lost my job and savings are slowly melting . I bet I'm not the only one in this situation. And in the present situation getting a loan isn't easy. Very brave step from ryanair

Any rumors on when they might start interviewing/recruiting Direct Entry NTR FO's?

Anyone know what the difference would be if you applied as a cadet than a NTR Direct Entry ?
