I was under the impression that all the Type ratings were going to be 33K at all centers.

V&B. If you are rated on the 737 (and if you have an interview for Direct Entry Command, I assume you do), the tech questions will be mainly on the 737 NG systems as well as operational considerations e.g. what would you do if...?

Hi,
For those of you who have had a recent assessment, I am curious as to the detail in the sim...particularly for low hour bods and anyone who did MCC on something other than 737...
Does the sim assessment always/normally include an emergency of some sort? And is it usually a non-precision approach? Also are FDs allowed/used? Any info much apprecieted!
Thanks!
CH

TO for a basic SID from Newcastle.

CLimbs, turns, accelerations and decelerations. Sim was paused and then I was asked where I was in relation to the Newcastle NDB on what QDR then what direction I would turn in to intercept the xx QDR/QDM then flew an ND approach to land.

There are 66 pages of information in this thread alone. How much more information do you want? Seriously - its worth your while going over these pages and you will find an abundance of information....possible every single type of question that has ever been asked at a Ryanair interview. You just need to get your finger out and go through it.

Yes Tech questions like what are the V speeds and in what order do they come. How does a jet engine work, what is radiation fog, questions on my previous types (seneca) critical engine on seneca and boeing, Vmca/Vmcg.

Personal interview was the usual why did you get into flying, what did you enjoy/dislike about your training, would you do anything different, why should we hire you, tell us about RYR.

All very relaxed although I was shaking like a leaf

Nick,

What the hell is it about those places!? I have always prepared 110% for all the interviews I've had for flying jobs/scholarships etc, and the night before I always feel very confident.

But it always happens on the morning of the day! I get the s**ts (literally), feel nauseous, so then I begin smoking, but I can't smoke too much because I'll stink for the interview etc etc...

The drive calms me somewhat, but the WORST bit is when you walk in the interview room and everybody's sat down, and once you've all exchanged pleasantries and handshakes, there's that awful silence for a few seconds whilst they gather their thoughts together!

But I must have done something right last year because I got the job - it's funny, I never have problems with interviews for other jobs, but for flying, it's always the same old story. No problem at all with flying tests etc though, and I'm calm as calm when flying, so I'm not sure what it is!

Hehe, I'm a funny guy!

I have no idea,

Was realy confident through all my training and test etc, its only when im sat in a room with 2 people looking at my licences I seemed to have a mental block at one point. He asked me " so how do our jet engines work?" It took me by surprise and I had to think about it, its one of the simplest bleeding questions we could hope to be asked!!

It may be the fact that most of my day was spent waiting in suspence, I was the last one there and didnt get intot the interview untill 4:30 having arrived at around 8:20. Not good to sit and stew!

Like you I must have done something right.

Nick

Hey guys, quick question. I passed the assessment and ash sent the email to confirm the training offer to which I replied that I would accept the training offer. This was just over a week ago and I have heard nothing since. Has anyone else experienced the same thing or should I call ash to check he got it? My email has a habit of not getting through junk filters.

btw for tech questions I didnt get asked about how jet engines worked cos I have an aero eng degree but instead they asked me what I saw as the fture of propulsion in aviation so we chatted about unducted fans and we also talked about T-tails, their advantages/disadvantages and why they are used. I also got asked a lot about SOPs, what I think of them and would I ever go against them.

Don't worry about the acceptance email,

I sent mine about a month ago and had my first communication back yesterday so don't stress.

The next email will probably be about converting your licence to IAA.
