Ryanair has carefully selected our pilot training partners due to their high standards in training. Only our official partners are listed on the Ryanair website and are endorsed by Ryanair’s Training Department.
Competency Ensured – Prior to Mentored Students committing to a large investment they are assessed by our Partner ATOs to firstly ensure that they have the capability to successfully complete pilot training and that they are suitable to become a future Ryanair pilot. This pre-assessment helps to ensure the 98% pass rate at the final Ryanair Cadet assessment. In the off-chance that the Mentored Student fails at the final Ryanair assessment, comprehensive feedback is provided to the partner ATO’s Head of Training and additional training and support may be provided to the student prior to completing a 2nd assessment with Ryanair, as soon as possible.
Fast Tracked Recruitment – Successful graduates from a Ryanair Mentored Pilot Training Programme at one of our approved partner flight training schools, not only get a guaranteed final assessment but also have an exclusive fast-tracked recruitment process and will be given preference during initial selection. In addition to that, programme graduates will enjoy a distinct advantage at the actual interview and assessment stage as they will be taught using Ryanair procedures and will get exposure to our safety culture and operational philosophy from day one of the programme. Mentored students will also be tutored directly by the Ryanair pilot recruitment team before attending their final assessment.
Ab-initio applicants will apply to one of our partner ATOs and pass an initial assessment to be placed on the programme. On successful completion of the programme and a final Ryanair assessment, the new pilots will be offered a place on a Ryanair B737 Type Rating course.
The programme has additional GATEWAYS to facilitate Modular Students. For more info please visit the flight school’s websites.

The APS-MCC is an efficient and effective course that is the tailor made link between the initial pilot training and the challenging operation in a commercial cockpit.
The Airline Pilot Standard MCC in accordance with EASA AMC2 FCL.735.A will develop all the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to help you fit easily into an airline career. Our statistics show that over 50% of newly qualified pilots who hold a CPL, frozen ATPL theoretical exams, ME/IR and a standard MCC fail at the initial assessment. The APS MCC will give you every chance of passing an assessment!
Cadets who enter the mentored APS MCC with one of our partner ATOs will get an unbelievable opportunity to train with Ryanair approved procedures, SOPs and instructors.
