Hi,

I will also start my typerating the 7th of July in Stockholm! If anyone wants to share accommodations please PM me.


The interview was quite strange. there were two of them, but one of them had to leave and the other one only asked me two (2!!) questions.

Explain carburettor ice and why do we have the different segments of a take off? (not what they are, but why we have them)

and that was all. I think I was in there for 5 minuets.

The simulator ride was not a big problem, just some turns and climbs, then we had a engine failure. We only needed to close the throttle and the examiner said checklist complete.

The I did a NDB approach and at about 500ft he said that there was a vehicle on the runway and we had to go around.

Then he positioned me for a visual approach from 6000ft and made the ILS, DME, ADF and so on U/S.

Then we stopped on the runway and the assessment was over. one week later I got the call

See you all at EMA on 23rd, sorting accomm this week I hope. I only got told yesterday and things are abit rushed. Have you got your Scotland Disclosure ref checks done before the 23rd, or before commencement of "flying for Ryanair" as it says in the literature they sent?

Hi, has anybody got an FR interview coming up and would like to share a sim brush-up at Oxford? I've got one booked for tomorrow (12 June) and it would be more effective (re crew cooperation) if there were two people. It would be £295 each (or we could just do an hour for half that).

I've heard that the sim assessment accounts for about 90% of the interview result and so even though I wince at the thought of heamoraging more cash, it would be a good idea to get back up to speed.

PM me if interested.

You should appreciate that FR are offering unpaid leave to pilots and will be grounding at least 20 aeroplanes this winter. They already have too many pilots, particularly FO's. Don't expect to the be offered employment after your TR course, particularly as the downturn bites ever harder.
Still wanna pay 30k on a still-born dream that is set to collide rapidly with reality in a very bruising manner?

Ema 30th June - Cae Ams 14th July

WBRYCE-MINT79: Yep, me too. What are you guys doing about accom in ams? I've contacted a few B&B's on the list who have availability but it could be worth considering a short term lease on a shared house together? Cheers Dan

This year is different: weak UK economy (40% of ryr traffic), ryr actively seeking to reduce deliveries and fleet size, oil price murdering fr (it was hedged last year).
There won't be jobs there come the winter.
So, you ask, why recruitment still? Because it's a profit centre. Charge a premium for the TR, pay em $hit on contract, then can terminate the contract at any time. Which will happen in the winter.
Unfortunately by that stage your problems will be twofold: a) not enough hours to go elsewhere and b) nowhere to go as plenty of others will go bust next winter, leading to less jobs and more experienced pilots on the market bringing us back to problem (a).
Proceed at your own risk, cos the risk sure ain't ryanairs.

You hope anyway, although with FR trying to get rid of pilots and grounding aircraft as the economy goes south and oil prices north, it seems that the need for pilots is very limited. Oh well, the profit they make off your TR will look nice on the accounts next year. Make sure you have a back up plan when ryr decide you're surplus to requirements.

Times have changed I'm affraid. Those who think nothing changes in 2.5 years in this industry- clearly know nothing about it.
