Hey,

Did you have your assesment? How did it go?
If you feel like that, could you write a short feedback for us? It would help a lot.

thanks in advance

I am NTR Cadet level.

i do not know what that means that they closed the application. I think it is still likely that they can invite the ones who already applied. Maybe they just have enough applications for now and that is why the got it off .
How did it go? I hope you passed it Can you give us some information about the assessment? Were the technical questions about 737 or A320?

Hey,

I had the assesment yesterday. Iíll write a quick feedback hope it helps. I am NTR Cadet level.
I wonít go into detail just the important stuff.

so after you are paired with your partner you recieve the charts you will need for the SIM we had Liverpool Bartn1T sid. You can start briefing with your partner, brief the callouts you will need as PF and when do you wanna start to descent slowing down for the ILS etc. Brief everything what you want here because you wonít have time in the sim. While every pair was briefing they started calling in for the technical interview one by one.

HR/Tech interview: Hr part was really straightforward. Just normal questions about you, your work and the where do you see yourself in 5 years and what makes a good captain etc. a few things about ryan/lauda (fleet,bases)
Technical part was quicker for me. The assessor asked me a few questions about my ME aircraft like what kind of engine, which is critical, landing gear etc. you donít have to answer in 10 sentences, really briefly if he sees you know it he will give you another questions. After this a few other questions about the brake system and after this he asked me about the brakes of the jets. Again very briefly say something. Asked about ApU what does it provide AC/DC how what volage. Other than electricity what does it provides. A few questions about pressurization system. And then 1-2 question about cessna 152. That was it.

Me and my partner were the last ones in the sim so we waited like 3-4 hours. It was really quick. Fly the SID steep turns. Emergency DoDAR land back vectores to ILS and that is it. They donít expect you to fly withing 50ft but have a good communicatiln with your prtner and help each other.

that was it. I got the positive answer a day later so today.

good luck everyone.

Hey,

I had the assessment yesterday. I am A320 TR FO. This day all of us were TR, so I think what we had is more likely to apply for TR guys.

We had a bit different schedule then normally, we started with the SIM. I was paired with a TR captain.

SIM:
Very basic stuff with minor faults and with mandatory items.
Starting in DUB RWY 28L LIFFY7A SID. Normal takeoff with automation. After takeoff fwd cargo door open with pressurization problem confirmed. Ecam, dodar, nits, decision to go back. Weather is OVC 1000 VIS 5km. ILS out so only VOR approach for 28L. Briefing. Before the approach AP off, ATHR off, but we could have FDs. At MDH no visual, go around. During GA engine fail. Again ecam, dodar, nits. ILS is working again so ILS 28L. Weather the same. Before approach AP off but ATHR ON, FDs on, one engine landing uneventful. End of SIM.

HR:
Very basic question, as written here before many time. You history with aviation. Why Lauda? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Notice period?

TECHNICAL:
It was more related to the SIM what we had. Cargo smoke/fire system. Green hydraulic system and ita fault. Some random question on the cockpit mockup picture. I think for TR guys they can ask anything but they want to see only overall knowledge they will not go into details. If you know every system what it is and what for and you can say 2 sentences about it you should be fine.

That was it for me. Assessment was Friday, I got the positive answer on Monday. Good luck!

Hello everyone,

I recently received an invitation for an assessment at Lauda as an experienced FO.
Currently, I hold a permanent contract with another airline.
Initially, I was quite enthusiastic about this opportunity, but after engaging in conversations with others, various concerns have surfaced.

First of all is the salary, particularly in VIE.
Additionally, there's the looming plan of Ryanair to phase out Lauda's A320s, transitioning to an all-Boeing fleet. It seems like a significant number of people are leaving due to this impending change.

Now, I find myself hesitating to join a company where there's a notable exodus of employees, especially with the uncertainty surrounding the termination of A320 leasing.
Any insights or advice on navigating these concerns would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot !

Hogos,

I did a brief stint at Lauda before returning to my previous carrier, and I would suggest caution if considering leaving your current company especially if you've got a permanent contract with another airline. I'd be curious to know who you're currently working if you're looking to leave them for Lauda..

Best of luck

thank you sniper,
I work for a small ACMI, so primarily, I was seeking a larger organization.
Essentially, we don't fly during the winter period, and I was looking for a more consistent workload throughout the year.
While it's a bit premature for me to consider at the moment, I'm also aiming for an upgrade. It wouldn't be feasibleto if flying twice a month during the winter.

Ryanair has bought 300 Boeing B737MAX10 for delivery between 2027 and 2033. I donīt see FR buying or leasing additional Airbus A320.
By the end of the 2023/2024 winter, STN base will be closed. Of 4 A320 based in STN, 2 will be returned to the lessor, and the other 2 will be sent to VIE and ZAG.

How many hours do you have? Guessing you're current on A320F or another Airbus? Few operators recruiting at the moment..BA mainline/euro flyer, Virgin, maybe EZY. Would look into holding out for one of those. I don't wanna poop on your parade but I honestly wouldn't recommend Lauda unless paying your bills depends on it. The upgrade bit makes sense I guess, I thought the same, but imo it's better to place yourself on the list somewhere else. Just my take though. As always, horses for courses.

thanks for your advices.
As a non-UK citizen without an ELP 6, I find it challenging to join British Airways or similar airlines, despite the current trend of recruitments throughout Europe.
While Lauda isfor sure a larger and more stable company compared to mine, I am hesitant to make a move that may introduce more uncertainties than I am currently facing.
