How efficiency and excellent preparation are helping to nail the Ryanair Cadet Program Interview. Personal insight from Flying Academy’s student Diego

Students from Flying Academy, International Flight Training Center are getting accepted to Airline companies from all over the world. One of the latest trend for low-hour pilots are various cadet programs, that are giving young pilots a unique opportunity to start their career straight after the flight training. Diego, our recently graduated trainee, who finished his 0-ATPL(A) training just in September 2015 and was accepted to Ryanair Cadet Program shares his experience of how to succeed at the interview:
My name is Diego, I am 21 years old and I completed my 0-ATPL(A) training in Flying Academy, Brno, Czech Republic in September 2015. I applied to Ryanair a week after I finished my MCC and got called for the interview for December 2nd.
The interview begins from the moment you walk into the building, not from when the assessment starts. Make sure you are well dressed and act appropriately throughout the day, even after the actual interview is over! The assessment begins with Briefing at 09:15 AM, which is given by one of the interviewers and during which you are paired up with your Simulator partner. The interviewer tells you what will happen throughout the assessment day and what will be expected of you. Pay attention to everything that is being said in the briefing! The assessor gave us some tips for the assessment and told us to be calm and not to stress too much about it.

Advice for future aviators: grow abroad

At the foundation of any major, there is an essential education for the formation of professionals. The aeronautical world is not dissociated from this same principle: all around the world there are countless flight schools, which are at the disposal of a future pilot. Due to this wide choice, many students can actually decide to move abroad to study and follow their passion. Moving to another country can of course be challenging, especially taking into consideration that the average student age is around 20 years old. There are multiple advantages that can be derived from these choices. A basic understanding of the English language, for instance, is a vital requirement for anyone who joins aviation and speaking it is a priority for whoever lives overseas.
Personally I decided to leave my country at age of 19 and to move to England where I had the opportunity to improve my English. After that I picked the school where I wanted to study, initially moving to America, Iceland and Czech Republic where I am currently employed. While abroad, other than English, it is also easier to study other languages. Cultural exchanges are crucial in this: in Italian, English, Spanish, Russian, Indian and others, it is easy to influence one another with slang terminology to comprehend the languages and customs of each other.

How to jet a job as an airline pilot? Our student, now in Ryanair cadet program, will give you advices for interview

This article is written as simple suggestion of what to do and what not to do when you are faced with the moment that you have been waiting for, the job interview or sometimes known as an assessment day. As the name implies, it’s an assessment and that means that you are there to be assessed - If you look up this word in a dictionary it will read: “To determine the value, significance, or extent of; appraise.” And this is where your part comes into play, writes Flying Academy student Matteus Kostrzewski who recently went to Ryanair interview and got accepted in cadet program.
 
Let's first talk about what most companies are looking for, especially for you as a low hour pilot. The only time a company will want to hire a pilot with low hours is because of one reason; they want to see that you are able to conduct further training with them. An additional reason beyond this point is the “pay it yourself” type rating scheme, but since this has nothing to do with skill and only how deep your pockets go meaning that It has nothing to do with the selection process. The assessment is usually divided into two parts, an interview with technical and non-technical questions and a simulator assessment.

Why is the weather bomb so dangerous?

Difficult to predict and easy to confuse with other weather hazards, Explosive Cyclogenesis or, as often called, “The weather bomb”, constitutes one of the most interesting meteorological phenomena. Its basic scientific principle is a rapid fall in the central pressure of a depression. Due to the collision between warm Sub-tropical air and cold Artic air a massive release of energy that is converted into motion (wind) and temperature contrast is created which drives the jet stream. The bigger the contrast the faster the jet stream, creating a vacuum which causes a pressure drop and pressure gradient to increase, therefore wind to gain speed and storms to form.
In order to meet the criteria of an Explosive Cyclogenesis the pressure drop must be at least 24 mb in 24 hours. Scientific Meteorological researches show the upper trend of weather bombs in the Northern Hemisphere over the last years. Most of them agree that there is another dangerous situation added to the increasing trend which is associated with a rapid intercontinental air pollution transport.

10 advantages for using the iPad in the cockpit

Flying Academy – the flight training organization managed by airline pilots – has started 2 months ago to equip its trainees with iPads. The Academy took the lead to revolutionize the cockpit and pilot training, realizing the vision of paperless flying and becoming the first Czech FTO to fly with iPad EFBs. The process will make learning to fly much easier, more efficient and accurate, useful for private pilots and important for future commercial pilots.

After having the iPad in trials, Flying Academy’s flight instructors have concluded that it’s extremely useful in the cockpit because it’s:

1. Fast – extremely short response time;

2. Reliable – as the iOS has very limited crashes;

3. Easy to use – intuitive menu and apps.
