Hi, thanks for the reply. Do You get money deducted monthly or something like that ?

No, there used to be a salary reduction, but not anymore.

Thank You very much for the highly valuable information. Just a last question to fully understand : is there a minimum time this bond is applicable for ? Meaning that should the pilot leave before a certain time he should pay back the 15k ? Thank You very much again.

Is this the same for Non TR FO?

Is there any payment or salary reduction... or is it just a bond?

How long approximately from applying online to the assessment?

Can you share some info on the DEC assessment process?

Thanks in advance

Base selection

I am looking at spending on an MCC in order to apply for Ryanair as a cadet first officer and I wonder if any of you chaps could help me with a couple of queries:

1. At what point do you find out your allocated base?

2. What are the chances of getting a UK base (strong personal reasons)?

3. Are base transfers easy or hard?

Thank you in advance,

RL

If You insist on starting in RYR the best is to take a MCC in CAE AMS, excellent and practically 1/2 a RYR typerating.
Now.
1.The base is assigned AFTER line training complete for a Cadet ALWAYS!
You will not get UK base for personnel reasons! There is umpteen ahead of you. Particularly now as RYR is stockpiling FOs .

2. UK base is popular among Brits , Others avoid it as the plague or simply quit if transferred there,BUT it will depend on RYRs expansion or most likely shrinking the bases if this thing called BREXIT goes south! But lest say a 15% chance!!

3. It is generally hard to get a specific base, and then it may close. Ask EIN BRE RYG etc crew!!
So to that question I can say it is a lengthy project , about as long as a string: Long!
Good luck Son.
You will need it if going down that path.
Regards

and here he is, BluSdUp and his positive comments about FR. You really have nothing better to be doing than talking absolute garbage about FR. They wouldn't be the first airline to open/close bases hence your comments are really irrelevant.

You would think that cadets would be enthusiastic to go anywhere these days however, I am probably wrong.

rogue leader if you are looking to join FR have a look at Sky4U in Berlin for your MCC

Cpt B - Thank you for the information and MCC recommendation. As I thought it seems it will be impossible to know until I'm a little down the line on basing.

aviationfanatic - Thanks for your input and MCC recommendation. I'm enthusiastic about the job, but my wife is a non-EU citizen and with the current Brexit situation it is unclear if she could accompany me, how long for, and what her rights might look like.

Not bashing RYR's policies, just looking to make an informed decision.

Ahhhh Did I hurt your feelings!
The truth My Dear is a tough thing.
RYR is for some pilots OK.
For others, not so much.
With regards to base a bit of a lottery.
By the way CAE AMS is the best MCC! Fact!

Welcome to the Club. My better half is Canadien.
Now ,Brexit would be sorted soon we hope. Then find out about You/Her rights.
Just an observation considering the 737MAX may never fly again( not likely BUT)
For sure Airbus will be in demand.
I would tend to lean towards A320 now if I was starting out, a fantastic aircraft BTW.
Not sure the UK demand mind you.
ANYWAY
Lets say EU base is not a problem for UK residents , the question is are You ready for worst case.Kaunas for 3 years?
Keep the Blue Side Up

I second aviation fanatics MCC recommendation, I did an MCC/JOC at cockpit4u / sky4u in Berlin for the reason that it was less than a quarter of the price of all the UK 737 MCCs. I only have positive words for them.

I started out at Ryanair and stayed for 4 years, like yourself I have a non EU spouse and did actually get a UK base as my first permanent base (even though I wanted to leave the UK at the time).

As you know, Ryanair won’t give you a uk base for ‘personal reasons’ but if you have it as a preference you may have a reasonable chance, especially somewhere like STN.

If Brexit gets extended today you will still have the right to bring your wife anywhere in EU with you. If not then you could also consider Dublin, I spent two years there and loved it - great city and a great base. Ireland and the UK will still retain the CTA if and when Brexit happens.

If you have any questions feel free to send a PM

What truth are you talking about? It takes a lot more than this to hurt my feelings however, I can't stand people talking garbage just for the sake of it!
You are extremely misinformed....

Very important note! A320 for MCC is surely fine.
