Line Maintenance

With a fleet of over 440 Boeing 737-800 aircraft, 1 Boeing 737-700 aircraft and 3 Learjet our dedicated highly skilled Line Maintenance team is required during the day, to rectify any defects reported by flight or cabin crew.

At night, it allows us to carry out scheduled and unscheduled maintenance up to and including ‘A’ check intervals. As with all airlines the majority of our maintenance is carried out at night when our aircraft are not busy flying our passengers across Europe.

As a Line Maintenance Engineer in Ryanair, you will be responsible for completing a wide variety of tasks on our Boeing aircraft across Europe:

  • A wheel or brake unit change
  • Inspection of the aircraft to ensure no damage has occurred
  • Testing of electrical and avionics systems
  • Lubrication of landing gears
  • Replacing filters on engines and / or hydraulic systems
We pride ourselves on the skill and expertise of our team of engineers and their continued focus on the highest standards of safety, quality and reliability.

Training is fundamental to all of our engineers with a number of mandatory requirements before any Certificate of Release (CRS) can be signed.

This training includes Continuation Training, Human Factors Training, Fuel Tank safety Training and Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS).

Suitable candidates will also be trained to Cat A and or B1 / B2 level.
The type licence will be achieved by attending a specific B737-800 or Max course.

In order to sign a Certificate of Release (CRS) for an aircraft, the engineer must have one of the following:

  • An EASA Part 66 B1 or B2 Licence on the aircraft type (B737-800).
  • A Category A Licence which allows limited defect rectification based on the scope of their approval.

Depending on which qualification an engineer has, a company approval is then given to the engineer which allows him / her to certify the work carried out, based on the limitations imposed with their approval.

With plans to grow our fleet to over 580 aircraft by 2024, we can offer you the best career opportunities.
