Just applied, got selected in some days. They gave me a short deadline to complete the online assessment. I asked for 2 more weeks because I work 12 hours a day and I'll have a week off at the end of the month and I want to be relaxed. They said no. Who cares about my problems...

so then why did you apply if you can't do the test?

Did you guys applied through Ryanar website where it says AFA Cadet pilots?
Because I applied there 2 days ago and recieved today:
" We have reviewed your application and we regret to inform you that it has not been selected for further consideration. "

I have no idea why I did not get a chance to do even a online assessment
I have everything valid and have over 1000 hours on Pilatus PC-12

This is a company that forces new pilots to RENT a company simulator, threatening that they won't have a job after line-training if they don't do it. It's all about making money from desperate cadets in any way possible, and they know that you're not as monetizable as the 200h guys. Practically everyone I know who went there wants to leave ASAP (haven't even finished line-training), but don't have a place to go with their hours. AFA knows you might have a chance to leave soon, and predicts that anyone with a healthy brain will do so.

I don't know if I should try to get in contact with them knowing that they rarely answer to that kind of mail.
Any thoughts ?
hello I am in the same situation I sent an email to AFA and I am waiting for their answer they said they will send me if Ryanair approves it

What a lovely company to work for
The only problem is that not many companies hiring cadets with minimum hours or without Multicrew hours

You must have it valid in the assessment day. If you pass you can have it expired for a maximum of 12 months when you start your training.
the reason for that is that once you add the type rating to the license it renews your ME IR.
Your MEP will be lapsed but you won’t need it anymore unless you want to work in parallel as a FI.

This information was given by Ryanair in the Dublin assessment day.

I was in this situation and have other friends starting their training with their ME IR expired after their assessment.

This is incorrect.

What exactly is this you're talking about? The forcing pilots to rent the sim part

Hi Guys.
Do you think is worth it to do the mcc aps mentored after failling thesim assessment?
Because it can give you great knowledge but also you can´t know why fou fail the assessment. Maybe it was because of some atpl fails (in my case) and I would also fail the second one for the same reason.

I don't believe it had anything to do with your ATPL, they wouldn't have invited you in the first place. Don't do the APS that's a waste if you already have an MCC. It sounds to me like you need to hire a sim and an instructor who knows the Ryanair assessment profile and spend a few hours doing it on repeat.

Probably is a waste of time and money. But maybe without the mentored they won´t call again.
Also people with mentored that have failed they have the reassessment 3 months later. But yes, I don´t think spend 7k more is the solution.
