For what it's worth I have a source I consider reliable who has heard from them that they had 6000 applicants, 3000 received the tests. 12 hired so far, and they all had 1000+ tt.

Hopefully not sarcasm, but just look at the numbers!!!

If the majority of those applying are low-houred, low experienced 'cadets' then they're going to have a long wait - if the majority of them ever get a job.

The self-sponsored 'cadet' training scheme is great for the flying training academies, but the reality is that many will fall by the wayside.

It's a pity because no doubt all are capable, as it is unlikely they would have got accepted and succeeded on the course.

The sad fact is there appears to be an over-supply of these embryonic pilots who have been left in something of an employment wilderness.

There still appears to be a supply of experienced type-rated guys who are 'on the move' and will no doubt be first in line for a job.

In the good old days of the self-improver is was fATPL, instructing and 1,000 hours before you ever got a look in (I sneaked in, over-age, but with good contacts and 925 hours after 6 years of trying - and kept everything current in the meantime).

If the majority of the 6,000 applicants have low-hours and low-experience then the battle for survival in the industry will be won by those who have money and take the initiative to build useful hours and keep current.

Those that sit back and let their ratings lapse are, in my opinion, doomed in this highly competitive, highly selective market.

All the best - never give up and never let people like me put you off in any way. YOU must be the one who succeeds!!!

I was once told by an experienced BA training captain that I would never fly a jet - capable, be just too inexperienced and too old.

I remember 10 years later patting the side of a brand new B737 I'd just flown into Geneva and thinking, in spite of his good intentions, how wrong that captain was.

If you're going to succeed, failure isn't an option! No matter what it takes

I did also the test without any news or result AND i am experienced. But i don't hope for anything. My life just continues. I dont want to be a pain in the ... Just forget this company and move on. Most of us, especially the low timers will not hear anything.

Why?

Wonder why they even do this kind of recruitment???
I mean 6000 applications and its still open to apply.

Must be expensive for the HR-department to handle this. 99 % of us will get a "no thanks" I guess.

As I understand it they havent had any problems recruiting experinced guys from Ryan.
