    it's true, notice on Crewdock last week. Cadet courses stopped, but There may be DEC and OCC courses available for type rated pilots.

    It is true, employees were notified of this by Memo on the staff website.


    • The planned expansion of the fleet and bases is continuing in 2009 as already announced.
    • The current rate of turnover is close to zero for both Captains and Copilots in Ryanair.
    • Due to the low rate of turnover all co-pilot type rating courses are now cancelled for November,
    December 2008, January and February 2009.
    • The pilot recruitment open days in EMA on the 13th and 14th September are cancelled.
    • More than 300 typerating courses will be operated in 2009 starting in March and applicants
    should refer to the Ryanair website for details of the course locations and dates.
    • A small number of Direct Entry positions will be available for experienced 737 rated Captains
    and First Officers in 2008 and 2009. Please refer your industry colleagues to the Ryanair website.
    If a pilot wishes to personally recommend a type rated pilot they can forward their details to my
    office via fax on
    • The vast majority of our Captain’s requirement for 2009 and 2010 should come from internal
    Command Upgrade courses.
    promotion.
    • Our two new Simulators will be installed at the Stansted Training Centre during the Autumn of
    We who fly do so for the love of flying. We are alive in the air with this miracle that lies in our hands and beneath our feet.

    Recruitment Freeze

    by shamrock/heavy » Mon Sep 22, 2008 10:33 pm

    Mr. Crow
    Unfortunately the internal memo that Cosmic posted was the first of such type issued by Ryanair that was about three weeks ago, mid last week another was issued on crewdock saying that there is now a complete recruitment freeze. Reasons given were no pilot turnover massive and volumes of applications from the likes of xl futura etc. It also says that this will be reviewed in January 09. I take a recruitment freeze to mean no more type ratings or OCC's so even the 800 rated guys/gals from xl and futura will find it very difficult to get in. The problem in Ryanair is that they are very short on Command and i believe i was told that up to 220 f/o's are ready for upgrade, this is taking place at the moment and will continue into the future. Lots of cadets need to be line trained over the winter also so training capacity is a bit of a problem.

    Indeed, if the "new guy" you are referring to is N714GZ he/she will be okay, all TR's up to the end of October will go ahead as planned, November through to March there will be nothing. Also Ryanair has purchased a number of new sims due for delivery shortly and i think the plan is to do the TR's in house in either EMA or STN when they are up and running. Enjoy the course N714GZ and best of luck. I would advise being positive about it though, as i say the main problem is training capacity over a winter when many aircraft are being grounded, upgrades to Command always have and always will take priority over any other training requirements concentrate on getting that white licence and evaluate things in again in March. Don't listen to a lot of the rubbish you hear from various "professional pilot" rumour networks :roll: if you did you probably wouldn't have started training in the first place.good luck
