As much as i know, just Buzz and only for Polish candidates.

Thanks!
That's true. But I believe it's 6K.
Another difference is that you'll work as a contractor

I want to share my feedback as I recently did my Ryanair assessment and have received a positive result.

For my preparation I used:

PPRuNe -> thanks everyone for the shared information

Pilotassessments.com -> the Ryanair preparation package is called ďIrish Low Cost CarrierĒ

Intro
The assessment day started at 08:00 and we gathered at the reception of the HQ in Dublin. After we were picked up we got a quick tour through the building and then submitted our documents in a briefing room. Here we also had a presentation about the structure of the day. Next simulator pairs were formed and one pair started with the simulator and the others with the technical and HR interview.

Tech and HR interview
I started first with the technical and HR interview and had the following questions:
  • Introduce yourself?
  • What can you tell about Ryanair?
  • What would you contribute to Ryanair?
  • What are SOPís, why are they important and what would you do if you notice a captain does not follow them?
  • Can you describe a situation in which you showed leadership?
  • What is your notice period?
  • What aircraft did you fly before and what can you tell about the electrical system?
  • What was the voltage of the battery and what is the voltage of the 737 battery?
  • How does a carburetor heater function?
  • What are swept wings and what are the advantages?
  • What do we use bleed air for?
The interview felt calm and related and in approximately 30 minutes I was finished with the interview.

Simulator
The simulator assessment took as well approximately 30 minutes for each.
  • Liverpool POL 4T SID with a climb to 5000ft
  • Afterwards airwork
  • Accelerate
  • Descent with 800 feet/min
  • In our case there was an emergency with smoke in the cabin, so we did DODAR/NITS briefing
  • Radar vectors for raw data ILS 27 at Liverpool
  • Landing (not assessed)
Make sure to do all handling and call-outs as described in the briefing package.

I hope my contribution will be of help to anyone else!
Last but not least: try to relax (as far as possible), be well prepared! and try to enjoy it as well

Hi guys, they say we are not expected to go through the check list (example before landing checklist), or QRH (in emergency). They say just “call it out”. Can someone explain what they mean by that?
thanks

Well, I can only comment based on my assessment in which the calling out of the correct checklist for the correct flight phase was sufficient and the actual checklist does not have to be completed.

Hi,

Basically just call ďbefore takeoff checklistĒ etc the examiner will just shout ďdoneĒ.

All the best

Hi everyone,

Anyone knows how much time they are taking to give an answer once you've applied for their AFA cadet programme?

Thanks and good luck to everyone

Hi guys, does it help attending the roadshows whilst you are still waiting for them to get back on the cadet application? Anyone had luck with this?

I Want to share my assessment experience
So for those whom are waiting, please donít quit
I applied in beginning of September, received the online invitation in November and Dublin invitation in December to make the assessment in January.
I have just a regular MCC, we were 8 as usual, 4 of us had APS-MCC Ryanair Mentored.
We were paired with according with our experience.
HR Interview
Tech Interview.
The simulator, TNT 2N, cleared to 5000ft. Short brief, FD and AT on, at around 4000ft AT and FD disconnect. Fly SID, then intercept radials, accelerate to 310kts, decelerate to 230kts, descent to 3000 ft at 800ft/min. Step turn 45 deg. Stopped the sim and asked where we were in relation to the NDB, and which holding entry sector, to both of us. Then emergency and vectors for ils.
For my theoretical preparation i used the pilot assessment and for the sim i combined the info from the brief package and the pilot assessment information, then i made 3 simulator sessions in my own country, i didnít on the Ryanair recommended places, but all the other guys made on the recommended places.
I got a positive result in the days after.
I wish the best luck for you all.

Feedback

Hi guys, just want to give feedback.
i got my license in the last few months of 2022 I applied in early December and uploaded all documents.
They emailed me a link to the online assessment same evening and I paid Ä60 for it.
I did it few days later and then I got invited to sim in Dublin in mid Jan.
I did 4 hour sim prep at Upilot at Dublin. Good place, but the sim is not accurate to the real sim. The trim did not work when I was there. But they help you lot with theory as well.
I did the assesment/interview. My HR/tech interview was surprisingly short, around 8 minutes.
that kind made me feel bad, as I thought I might have put them off and they were not interested in me.
I later googled and felt better as it said it might be because they already know all they needed to know, so no point continuing further.
then came the sim assesment. PF and PM, not Liverpool Pol4T SID. All good.
then steep turns.
then emergnecy
and Radar vectored ILS back at Liverpool.
Flew the ILS like a champ.
no go around.

Top tip: know the pitch and power settings at 60 tons, and it really is price of cake.

few days later I got the good news.

for emergency one of us had fwd cargo fire
the other had passenger with health emergency

Use T DODAR or similar. Show CRM, always talk and communicate with partner.

itís really chilled environment. They do really make you feel comfortable. Just be yourself guys. Dress up smart.

You will meet other cadets all over Europe.
all the best guys.

How is it possible that some people get the invitation link for the online assessment the same day they apply, whereas other people like me have been waiting for 2 months now ? It's crazy unfair

Hi guys,
I know for many it will sounds funny but I just wouldnít want to waste my chance because of that, also I couldnít find answer for that.
I know they want from you 2 reference letters. I see you can bring one from someone you know for more than 5 years and I will bring from my very best friend that I know for like 12 years but I donít know what about with other one. They donít want you to bring reference from relatives as a someone who you know for 5 years but what about if I worked in 2 companies of my father and getting reference from him as my employer/boss. When it comes to one from the school itís also not that easy as itís hundreds of kilometers ride and also I would have to translate it. Thought about getting one from my flight instructor but Iím not sure if itís ,,educational bodyĒ. Or simply just bring two reference letters from someone I know for 5 years would that be a problem? Thank you

As far as I know they won't accept 2 references from somebody you know more than 5 years nor from a flight instructor

As I thought unfortunately. What about company of a relative? For someone with short life experience as me it is not that easy to find good reference especially if you worked for 2 companies and both were more or less from someone from your family. Anyone has been in similar situation and knows solve for this?
