This is an assumption but it sounds plausible..
training partners are obviously endorsed by the RYR training department so it is crystal clear that you are trained to pass the assessment and the type rating

Anyone with an MCC/JOC and just preparing properly can pass the assessment, I know plenty of guys that have done the ryanair mentored APS and still have to go and do the sim prep sessions before the assessment. Having the ryanair mentored APS will put you at the top of the pecking order in terms of being called first, but that is because the TRI's job is much easier for someone that has done all the APS exercises as it makes up 33% of a type rating. I was surprised to discover what was the content of the assessment and that the APS is not geared towards it all, considering what you hear.

People will do SIM prep cause they want to have the best chance of passing - so what's wrong with that?

Absolutely nothing! i highly recommend it. My point was that an MCC/JOC will be just as good as an APS if you do the sim prep sessions properly, as what was covered in the APS section of the MCC/APS course is just all LOFT exercises essentially

Has anyone had an interview for the B737 Non-Type Rated First Officer position?

If so how was the interview and sim assessment?

Many thanks

LP

Hi everyone,

How much time do we have between the day you are shortlisted for the online assessments and the actual day when you do those test? Because I just applied for Ryanair, but I don't really want to buy pilotassessments for nothing and to train on it if I'm not even shortlisted. Or is it the only soluton ?

Thank you for the help

I think this depends on your available preparation time, current (ATPL) knowledge and psychometric capacity.
For me it only took several days for receiving the invite for the online assessment after applying, so I would advice to be prepared, things can move quicker than expected!

Thank you for your answer, but you didn't really answer my question. When you are shortlisted to do the online application, do you have some time ahead of you or like you receive an email saying: "you are scheduled to do the online test tomorrow" for example. What is the amount of time Ryanair gives you when they have selected you for the online assessments?

Well in my case the invite e-mail said that I had 3 days for completing the online assessment after the payment had been processed, so I would suggest to be prepared!

All right, but you decide when to make the payment. You can train let's said for 1 or 2 week on pilot assessments and at the end you decide to make the payment and do the online tests ?

I'm on FR2303. Trying to find Stansted accomodation without approaching the cost of the TR

For anyone wondering, I had to wait around 4 weeks from finishing the online assessment to getting my interview date.

No, you are usually given a deadline by them so not possible to decide when to complete

How is it possible some people get an invitation 2 days after, and some people wait for months..I guess it's due to the documents and information you put on your application...
