1. Suit and tie
2. highly polished black shoes
3. Clean shaven (unless its part of your heritage/always had a beard)
4. No dirt under the nails
5. Cut the fluff from the back of your hair line
6. Tidy up your chops (sideburns)
7. Any flesh that is on show must be clean (Oo Errrrrr Missus!!)

Look like you mean business then you will act the business. Your next interview may not arrive for another year...

OR :

A shell suit in green, white and gold.

Leg warmers

Don't forget the sweat band for your head and embroider it with the Ryanair flight number you took to get there.

Hope this helps and don't hesitate to contact me for more recruitment advice.

Sorry, sat at Shoreham and cannot fly due to weather.

In all seriousness, coming from a HR background:

1. Don't wear strong after shave for various reasons. If i listed the pyschological reason behind this you would all laugh at me.

2. DON'T wear matching colour shirt and tie (Burton clubbing style). It shows a total lack of taste/individuality. HR people hate it.

3. A prospective employer will base a large amount of their decision on how you would fit in in the first eight seconds of meeting you. Before anyone wants an argument on this, look it up. It important that you have open body language, smile and eye contact every meber of the room eqaully whern you first walk in.

I hope this is a little more helpful than my previous verbose comments.

Good luck

Sorry, you're a Boeing 747 driver, and you're asking what to wear for an airline interview? Are you for real?

Just out of curiosity, guys. MOL promotes casual kind of wear, so what they would like to see during interview. And what about dress code in Southwest?
Thank you for all inputs.

I can't believe people still ask if they should dress-down for an airline pilot interview or what to wear full-stop.

Come on - work it out! How would you dress for any other formal job interview!?

Think about the qualities/image your prospective employer is looking for in a new recruit...

Sorry. Rant over.

What always works is a navy-blue or black suit.
Black leather classic shoes, but NOT laquered. They must be clean, also the underside. Wear a white or light blue shirt.

A red tie, without prints on it.Ever Watched the Presidential debates? They always wear red ties because this makes a person look confident, strong and a "leader" without being "dull".

Facial hair is OK for already a while now people. A ringbeard is actually quite distinguished, as long as your beard is trimmed and your haircut is tidy. People who still believe that having facial hair will stand in the way of a job have some catching-up to do, or live in the US.

I have been previously involved in recruiting/selecting for Flight Academies and Airlines.

WTF is a ring beard? I really really hope it isn't what I am thinking.
Any way, if it is shouldn't you be wearing trousers or something?

A friend wore a skirt suit to her QF interview. (She got it). I have worn a black trouser suit, no tie, tidy shirt. It's worked too. Wear what ever you're comfortable in. Both work.

1. Don't forget your cheque book
2. A small bowl to put the monkey nuts that they pay you in
3. Remove your spine before you go in
4. Wear something that enables you to bend forward easily

Good Luck

Ryanair Sim Check

Does anyone who has recently done the Ryanair sim check remember the profile of the flight? I would be very interested in speeds and flap retraction/extension schedules. In fact, anything you can remember would be a help.

RWY 28 out of LPL with the W2T departure. Flap 1 take off. Climbs and decents at assigned speed. Steep turns. Back to the NDB on an assigned bearing (Will you turn the right way to get it?) Engine fire on way back. Into hold ....then out for a procedural Single Engine ILS into 28.

Simple enough......with practice (Hint hint)
