funding a type rating in these difficult financial times

Hi all,

would anyone who has recently funded a type rating through the Banks, care to share which establishments are willing to lend for this at present?

PM me if you prefer.

Many thanks,

TR EMA 3rd Jan

Hi all,

I will start TR at EMA on Jan 3rd, pm me of you are in the same case and would like to share accomodation. We are already two of us looking for a good deal.

And a little word for those waiting for a GO: as previously mentioned, things can take a long time : I waited 1.5 month between assessment and positive answer.
Had assessment on Aug 10th and start TR on Jan 3rd. Registered with CAE end of April.

Good luck,

REM Air,

I don't know if you have finished your interview or not. But if you google ryanair pilot interview (google) search engine, I promise, you will find many various websites that helps with the interview questions. Or you can go through every bloody page in this thread.

Good luck and I hope you get the job.

TR price 737NG?

Hi sebseg,

First of all congrats for the start of you TR!
But can you tell me how much you have to pay for the TR?
Is it now 27.500eur or still 33.000eur VAT incl.???
And also, when do you need to send to money to RYANAIR (is it 2 weeks prior the start of the course?).

Tks for the answers and good luck with the course....

Through CAE the Type Rating is €27500 exlcuding VAT. VAT DOESN'T have to be paid as long as you provide your VAT Registration number which is provided by your accountant when you establish your Irish company.

Payment is required 4 weeks prior to the start of your course.

For the assessment procedure the paperwork states for a go-around:

# Call ‘Go-around, Flaps Fifteen’ (GA, F15o). The PM will select the Flaps to 15o
# Push the Thrust Levers towards maximum thrust (full arm length action required on the Thrust levers).
# Then immediately put both hands on the control column. The PM will set the Thrust to 90% N1.
# Pitch up and fly 140 knots minimum. (VflyF30o=V2 F15o). On a Boeing “the speed you fly in is the speed you fly out” (assuming Flaps are re-configured)
# Next call ‘Gear Up’. The PM will select the Gear up.
# Maintain 140knots & F15o until levelling off. The Flap retraction schedule is the opposite to the extension schedule (above)…..at 150 knots call ‘Flaps 5o’…at 170 knots, call ‘Flaps 1’o and at 190 knots call ‘Flaps up’.

Once you call for ‘Flaps up’ you are responsible for the Thrust Levers.
Is the thrust reduced from 90% during this procedure - because if, for example, you are leveling at 2000' (LPL) i would think you will go rocketing through the height or (if you are lucky enough to catch it) the flap speeds before you finally come out with "Flaps Up".

Does anyone have any experience of how this happens in the assessment? Cheers!

Single push of TOGA commands a 2000fpm climb on the flight directors and autothrottle. Push twice and you get full welly. Often confuses people who wonder why they've apparently not got full thrust and then try and push the thrust levers up. Let them do their stuff.

Thanks 'driver - I'm aware of what happens for a standard NG G-A but I was specifically asking about the RyanAir assessment. ie No FDs, MP selects 90% after an initial 'extended arm' from the HP, but then - it appears from the blurb sent out prior to the assessment - that the thrust is not moved from this position until 'flaps up' is called.

If this is true then I would expect that, for a 2000' level off eg Liverpool, it would be very difficult to level off and subsequently raise the flaps to Flap 1 without shooting through 220kts if you were not supposed to touch the power before calling 'flaps up'.

Does anyone know if this IS exactly how they expect people to fly it - or is some thrust reduction prior to this point considered reasonable?

Two posts from a Ryanair thread
Uk based FO doing 4 flights in November on Brookfield contract and wondering how I'm going to pay my bills!

I suppose it might suit the young free and single but the prospect of a base move or another winter like last fills me with dread.

I'd love a salary and a bit of security don't know about the rest of you?



Here here Nick, same up here in Scandinavia, 4 days work in November.

The December paycheck is going to be interesting, thanks for a bumper xmas FR !
ps. 5 new cadets started in the last few weeks, just as the reduced winter schedule kicked in, nothing against these cadets, but wtf ?

better get cracking on that EK app....

Can anyone on this thread please tell me where they did there MCC. I am wondering whether it is worth the while trekking over to Sweden's Bfsaa/CAE route. In the hope of getting an interview on the back of the course or to just sit tight. Complete an MCC at a cheaper school on something like a King Air and practice later on a jet sim nearer to an assessment?


P.s I have thoroughly searched this site and have found many posted touching upon this subject but nothing of any use...

Technically on the go around for Liverpool RW27 you enter the hold after the missed approach, if you check the speed limit for the hold its 185kts max however in the assessment its unlikely that you will fly the full missed approach procedure due to the limited time scale, due to feedback from students and the briefing pack for the assessment they expect both hands to remain on the control column until flaps up no lights, its a good idea to leave the thrust at 90% N1 to leave the aircraft accelerate to retract the flaps, if your ahead of the aircraft and when you reach level off you call bug up and retract flaps on schedule then you will find that when the monitoring pilot says flaps up no lights the speed will be between 220kts and 250kts therefore you can put your hands on the thrust levers and bring the N1 back to 60-70% or adjust accordingly,on the briefing pack they make it very clear that both hands are to remain on the control column until the flaps are up and the lights are out.

I heard that new cadets have to pose for the RyanAir calendar in addition to the flight attendants. Is this part of the new contract? Can anyone substantiate this rumour?

Thanks JiffaJaffa

When going through this procedure in the Sim it all appeared to happen quite quickly from level off to 220kts (as the breifing say's fly at 220kts unless told otherwise) and I would have thought it prudent to reduce power as the level off is commenced - however, as you say, the 'keep both hands on the control column until flaps up' instruction is quite clear.

Thanks again.

My recent assessment with RYR was very fair and straight forward compared to other assessment practice I have seen.
No computer games, no psychologists who try to argue with you and not inviting 100 guys while at the end accepting 2. Very positive impressions remain from Ryanair in contrast to what is being bashed on them on this forum from time to time.
The interview puts focus on ATPL knowledge as well as english level and personal questions. The sim session was well briefed beforehand and the chief pilot was very helpful explaining what he wanted to see and assisting those unfamiliar with the 738. The session lasted long enough to perfom an SID, an ndb appr, an ils appr (both ended up with go arounds at minimum) and a visual approach (they let me do it single engine). At some point a problem arised in the cabin that would promt a nits briefing and a max rate descent / return back to the airport in due time. The "flight attendent" will ask the "captain" for the actions - forwarding the problem to the PM will not work.. Some TCAS action is possible too. You can choose from which seat you want to be the PF. There wont be any comments on how you performed at the end.

Its been 2 weeks now and I havent heard from them yet - but as they said it may take some time.

Good luck for your assessment ...
