Ryanair Mentored Programme - Bartolini Air

Hi everyone,
I am going to try the assessment for the Ryanair Mentored Programme at Bartolini Air; I would like to know if this kind of cadet scheme is worth to invest on Ryanair.

Thanks for all info!

Yes, in my opinion, it is absolutely worth it.
I am a former Bartolini Air student and I was very happy with them. I have never had a problem with them and thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
Ryanair is a great start for someone's career and if you manage to get based in a base of your choice, their 5-4 roster can give you excellent quality of life. Yes, I agree they are not the best employer around, but none is perfect.

And the new contract in Italy looks very good. I'd sign for it right now if I could.

Not professional and trusted

Having payed deposit, after a personal lost of my family member, despite my over 1 month notice, they are refusing to pay back my deposit. Unprofessional and over above unhuman company. Not dealing with them anymore.

Is there any guarantee that you'll get a job at the end? If not, don't give them any money.

I would avoid this school if I was in you, having dealing with his manager and not trustable at all, despite the good feedback from the past nowadays this school is just focused to collect all the money, have heard of bad feedbacks from former students lately, missing documentation, delay in trainings, complete chaos. They will press on you to pay the deposit. I would suggest to look for other schools around Poland or Central Europe.

I hv finished my CPL+ME/IR/PBN at the beggining of december - didn't have any problems at all, everything was clear and the paper work was done on the second day after my exam. Which group You were in? Are You BA student at all? All this sounds strange for me...

Hehe, No probs at all Alejandro!
I think the notifications here are not working!
I even sent u a private message here, to ur profile but I think it was not visible for you!
Yes, I applied a week ago and just got the invitation to phase 2, now Im about to send the 200€...
What is this phase 2 gonna be about? Phase 2 is the tests with math, physics, english and compass test or somethin easier?
Would be good to discuss it with u!
And to hear ur opinion about the Mentored Program overall...
Because I was surprised when I figured there will be no guaranteed job at the end only a chance for a normal job interview with Ryanair (only they will teach us to their SOP's as an advantage).
If its true, then there is not big of a difference than u would go to Ryanair job interview after getting frozen ATPL on ur own I guess.

I have to disagree with your statement that there is no difference between doing a normal ATPL course and a course mentored by an airline. Check facts online

It is a widely known fact that if you do your training with Bartolini, AFTA or Aviomar and then do your APS-MCC with Virtual Aviation , you will have an advantage over a normal modular student during the selection process. If you don't mess it up in the sim or at the interview you are pretty much in. If you get in the mentored program and you perform with average good results, they know you are a trainable person.

I'm looking for accommodation in lodz and it would be great to be with someone who is starting either the RYR mentored course in April or just a student in general from bartolini looking to rent a room.

I haven't found a place or anything but I'd rather be with students than Random people.
