HI

I passed a sim check and interview with Ryanair last December and I just got my start date for the type rating, July 13th.

Hi Andymax, well done on getting your start in aviation.

Heres a few websites you WILL need if you work for Ryanair.

WWW.REPAWEB.ORG

WWW.IALPA.NET

WWW.BALPA.NET

Join the First one its free and then make up your own mind on whether you need to join one of the other two.

Safe Flying

Congrats Andy, you will love it.

Not wanting to get into an argument but before you join anything wait and see for yourself. No complaints from me. There are plenty of Ryanair haters out there who maybe didn't cut the mustard themselves. You " WILL " not need to do anything!

Bokloster Villas in Marsta is a good tip for accom. Close to bus stop to Arlanda. As for your week in EMA, there are plenty of good value B+B's in Castle Donington just down the road! Work hard-some people dont make it through.

Good luck!

Drop me a PM if you need any advice.

Oh and get started on all your paperwork for stuff like sole trader etc as soon as, its by far the most confusing part!!
And i agree, working for ryanair is what you make of it.
Theres plenty of happy campers around the crewroom. just avoid the moaners!

Thanks lads for the advice.

I looked into the sole trader thing and my accountant advised against it as the revenue have copped onto this in Ryanair.

I also have been onto the Bokloster place. Also thinking about the The Park Inn in Arlanda.

I will probably stay in The Thistle right beside the training facility in EMA

Theres much cheaper in ema than the thistle, have a look a round castle donington, bus goes right through there and a good service

Agree with Dara on this one. You'll need every penny by the time you get the safety pilot signed off and actually earn some dosh. Then you'll have to wait until the 13th of the next month to see it. From EMA to money in the bank it'll be around 5 months.

Re Arlanda, the best thing is to stay with the other members of your group, especially your sim partner. All 12 cadets on my course stayed at Bokloster. It made study sessions easier and advice was always just a knock away. Beware of Kung Karls nightclub in Marsta though...the women are stunning..but they do like to slap if you get too close!! :D
