because having spent £100k, to pay for a TR and not get any free coffee is the next price you pay .

And it’s poor , but if you don’t do it , there’s still a queue behind of people that’ll do anything to get their base training photo with 737 on Instagram

And it’s not a modern phenomenon - a mate paid for a 737 TR with BM in 1995 .. no guarantee of a job .. another did likewuse and got sent to the F100… I brought into the pay for tech training and do the tech exam scam .. to put on a CV

No they’re not. The ‘bottom feeders’ exist because there’s a market for them, there’s a reason why, there are so many qualified pilots out there

So many licence holders with zero experience . The locos have the pick of the 250 hr new and desperate pilots .

Theres not many highly qualified - hence the quantity of DEC jobs worldwide

Richard,

Don't let this stop you from applying again. Keep at it with the aptitude tests, and get someone to look over your CV and cover letter to make sure they're top notch. There are plenty of people who have applied to Ryanair more than once and have gotten in eventually.

Thanks for the reply and the advice, it seems i cant apply again until i have hours-or they reach out to me ( fingers crossed ), I have had a friend look over my CV and cover letter and they said its suitable, I am now considering alternatives like Avion express/ Eagle jet even though alot of users have concerned their frustration- but it seems the market is tough to crack into with experienced and fresh young cadets as well as being in my late 30's time is ticking..

Not sure. Just 5 job offers, 2 of them for captains/TR and the others are for FO but you require 1000h. I might be searching wrong tho

I think if you're low hours and have a job, annual leave allocation is the bottom of your list of priorities for quite some time

Okay so tell me why I will want to have “annual leave” for a 6 months contract that’s is not even an “annual” while I’m getting pay and stay home waiting for my base? The moment I will start fly that last thing I will want is annual leave + this annual leave give gets extra money for the paycheck. So stay home and gets more money no problem.

I have been looking at your comments around and you always so negative about Ryanair, I suggest you to change your attitude. You don’t like Ryanair? Fine keep your attitude off the forum or go to flight simulator forum or something

No, I won't change my attitude or opinion about Ryanair just because you don't like hearing it.

The fact is Ryanair are not known for treating their pilots particularly well. That is a well known fact yet you lemmings continue to join in droves for a quick jet job.

Don't like it, don't join and then come here whining about it.

You probably one of those who laid hundreds of thousands of dollars on pilot licenses and still jobless because of attitude.

Worse, he’s one of the grossly insecure Jet2 pilots who thinks criticising every other airline will make himself feel better about getting up at 3am for the sixth day in a row to ship more chavs to Benidorm.

Ignore him. Or bait him. He bites, regularly.

Sorry Chesty is only stating facts.

When I was at RYR half my group did base training and got given leave due to insufficient LTC. Is what it is. Welcome to RYR. Sat at home earning a pittance on leave I didn’t want.

Those that only stay at RYR will always praise it. Once you go elsewhere you realise how poorly paid and how poorly treated you were at RYR.
