Arrange an Assessment
Our Ryanair assessment consists of two parts.
1) Psychometric and aptitude Testing which can be completed online at home.
2) Simulator assessment and interview which are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in our academy. Preparation is key.
The CUT-E Test
When you contact one of our training advisors you will be emailed a link to complete this section of the assessment at home. This is a computerised pilot screening system which assesses work related behaviour, situational behaviour, inductive logical thinking, reaction speed, spatial orientation, multi-tasking capability and complex control.
After successfully passing the CUT-E test, you will be invited to attend part two in the academy. The simulator apptitude test consists of a short briefing, after which you will be instructed to perform some basic manoeuvres. This is to assess your capability, capacity and interaction with an instructor.
This part of the process is an opportunity for you to tell us why you would like to join the Ryanair mentorship programme, what qualities, characteristics and experience you could offer Ryanair.
You will be tested on your technical and non-technical skills. Non- technical skills include areas such as communication, leadership and decision making, instruction knowledge. Technical skills would include ATPL questions.
