Jetavia,
yeah but the big problem is where can i fly for 100 hours? I was supposed to start this kind of session with bond aviation, but at that time nothing is scheduled. Although i'd prefer to fly and be paid , i assume that without 100hours no chance to work with Ryanair . And every post i look at on PPRuNe is: you must got hours to be hired. Well, before having hours you must start with almost nothing so...
i still have no answer to my cv, let's hope that it will change with spring!
Always looking after ideas.
Thank you all

Questions

Mutton

Did you have your interview already.
Maybe you can share some of tech questions you got.

Thanks JB

Flash/David,

How you guys going?
Got an assessment eh? Firstly, don't panic... The whole day is pretty informal really, the main thing i can advise is to make sure your instrument scan is up to speed as sim work is pretty frantic without any let up. All good fun.
As for places to stay, i didn't have to tackle this problem as i've got in-laws nearby, but the other guys on the day stayed at Thistle hotel (could have been holiday inn not sure) apparantly about 70. Apart from that you could try some B & B's in Castle Donnington which isn't far away.
Hope this helps. All the best.

Thanks Mutton

Thanks for those inputs Mutton...I appreciate it...I'll try and keep the blue side up...BTW...is the sim visual and is it normally set up for night/dusk ops and what weather is given? Is the crew both being evaluated at the same time or do you have a 'check pilot' as your co-pilot or Capt as the case may be? Inquiring minds and all that...thanks again.

Hi Flash,

You are given a pretty low cloud base (about 400' on depature) which you never climb out of (you only go up to 5000') so there isn't much to see. However, the cloud does miraculously rise enough to let you land, just!!.
Weather is a fairly steady wind, about 15-20 kts and not a stonking x-wind either.
When you 1st arrive you will get paired up with another candidate for the sim. It is mainly the PF who will be assessed (you are briefed not to give too much help as PNF!!) but PNF still has to do radios, recall drills for engine fire, reset nav aids and all that good stuff.
Good luck.

As for places to stay try the Travelodge. Have just booked a night for 28 quid. Just like Ryanair no frills but if you book early enough cheap as chips.

RYANAIR Interview & Sim

Hello,

Anyone any idea how long it takes from applying online (@ CAE or SAS) untill you get an invitation for the interview - HR & technical?

I did send them both emails questioning the timing issue but unfortunately; 0 respons. A bad start?

Anyone recent experience?

Thanks.

Is there anyone who knows something about the technical interview?
What kind of question can you expect to get if you only have flown small piston engine aircraft??

hi all, had a call a couple of days ago inviting me to ryanair assessment this wednesday. i haven't flown 737 sim in about a year, my IR needs revalidating and i'm basically well out of practise. any ideas/suggestions where i can get some last minute practise in? i've flown about 100 hours in pa28 in last year but that's it.

also, does anyone know any questions asked in the technical interview? i've heard a few q's on sweptback wings etc... the only twin i've flown is seneca (2 years ago during CPL/IR) so i'm assuming i'll get q's on this. if anyone could pm me some example questions that have come from the interview i'd really appreciate it.

thanks, bbear
