About the tech interview :

Can you describe one of any aircraft that you have flown ? Or do they really want you to describe the last/current aircraft ?

Can it be an airplane that you flew just in a simulator ?? For exemple, in my case, the last aircraft that I flew was a DA40 but after that I did the MCC on EMB120, so If they look at the last page of my logbook they will see simulator E120. As you can imagine it's easyer to describe a DA40 than a E120

The last real aircraft you flew/pre-flighted had a rating in your licence. For most low timers this will be the twin they did there IR on.

Ok thank's for that quick answer Kinetic. So you can't choose wich aircraft you want to describe.
Do you now how many time you have to wait before being contacted by the school for the interview ?
Anybody has enroll with CAE Aviation Training yet ?
Good night.

with how many hours are they calling?

Hi You all!
I'm just out from the flight school with 170h. Does anyone know whith how many hours are them calling for examination? I know that as more hours you have will be better but I'm just wondering when can i apply to get a bit of chance and be called 4 examination.

Also does you know if you are fired on any of the exams, Do they give you a seccond attempt after? after a year, or 150 hours or anything similar?

thnks 4 your replies.

170h is very little indeed. You can always send an application via SAS or CAE but I doubt that you will be called for interview. It's hard to get an interview with Ryanair unless you have contacts. The ques for SAS and CAE are loooong....

Hello Folks,

Have assessment day with FR around the corner. Apart from what's already on the forum, are there any news re. recent FR Sim session (program, airports etc) and technical interview ?

Any idea about what was recently asked re. commuter A/C (ATR, DASH etc.) ?

Anything they do not want to hear during the personal interview ?

You'll get a SID out of leeds. General handling, steep turns, climbs and descents at a requested airpseed. NDB tracking. Just general handling, and good instrument skills is whats being looked at. You will get an engine fire and after you've handled it you will do a full proceedural ILS to land. Your performance will be set against the background of your experience level. Make sure you get a few hours in a Jet sim, like the 732 in Dublin or the 727 in Bournemouth. The people who fail are people who weren't instrument and Jet proficient, and weren't prepared.

As for the Oral, you will be asked on your previous aircraft. How does the hear work, systems, engines, how does the heating system work. Make sure you know your systems in detail even and especially if you only flew a seneca.

The HR is a non event. Why do you want to work here? Have you got the reddies for the rating? 5 mins.

This question has been asked before but no-one seems to have answered it so here goes... Does anyone know how long the wait is from hearing you have passed the Ryanair sim check till hearing your type rating start date? I know a couple of people in that situation who are concerned at having heard nothing so far since hearing they've passed.

I know of 1 guy who passed his sim check in March. He is starting his type rating in June.

Are pilots really pay for their drinks at Ryanair?

Are you talking about all the paying for their type rating and get paid the huge amount of 8ooo the first year or the real ones going for DE and then not worried about renewal and bills to pay etc.....

The reply did seem a bit excessively agressive, still how does A320 manage to get mentioned in so many threads?

This will probably go down like a lead balloon but it's just a thought.
This website is a place to exchange rumours, news and information. Why has it become de rigeur that any post asking for info about FR is fair game for abuse? I am not daft, I realise that they are a deeply unpopular company for various reasons but hurling insults when someone asks for some info from fellow pilots seems to go against the spirit of pprune's job section. Are people who have made the tough decision to go down the FR route to be ostracised altogether? I have received PMs from other members with answers to the original question on this thread who were not willing to admit having gone down the ryanair route. I actually dwelled for some time on asking this legitimate question because I knew the type of replies it would generate.
In my opinion such unconstructive comments belong on a thread on the rights and wrongs of a SSTR, not on a thread asking for advice.
Best regards
richarjm

I know a good friend who passed the sim at EMA in Feb '06 has been offered a Type in SAS in Mid June. I think they have problems with getting available Trng Cpt's to line train both FO's & Cpt's once the Type rating is completed... hence delays. Hope this helps.

For the Oral can you choose one aircraft that you have flown or they will check on your logbook your last aircraft.
Do you have a link or the name of the school in Dublin which have 732 sim.
Thank's
