B737 Low Cost Pilot Assessment Guide

Please note that we have no affiliation with Ryanair or any other airline.

FlightDeckFriend.com has produced a comprehensive 68-page PDF guide to a B737 low-cost airline pilot selection process. The briefing is suitable for cadet pilots, direct entry co-pilots and direct entry captains.

With fierce competition for places with one of the few European airlines to recruit cabin crew directly on the Boeing 737-800, it is important to maximize your chances of success by preparing as thoroughly as possible. We offer a complete guide to the assessment day and an in-depth guide to flying the Boeing 737-800 simulator.

“I received your information pack and went through it carefully before the interview. I passed the interview and was offered a position with the airline. The information pack you gave me you sent was very accurate and valuable and I want to thank you for your help.”
