How to jet a job as an airline pilot? Our student, now in Ryanair cadet program, will give you advices for interview

This article is written as simple suggestion of what to do and what not to do when you are faced with the moment that you have been waiting for, the job interview or sometimes known as an assessment day. As the name implies, it’s an assessment and that means that you are there to be assessed - If you look up this word in a dictionary it will read: “To determine the value, significance, or extent of; appraise.” And this is where your part comes into play, writes Flying Academy student Matteus Kostrzewski who recently went to Ryanair interview and got accepted in cadet program.

Let's first talk about what most companies are looking for, especially for you as a low hour pilot. The only time a company will want to hire a pilot with low hours is because of one reason; they want to see that you are able to conduct further training with them. An additional reason beyond this point is the “pay it yourself” type rating scheme, but since this has nothing to do with skill and only how deep your pockets go meaning that It has nothing to do with the selection process. The assessment is usually divided into two parts, an interview with technical and non-technical questions and a simulator assessment.

Why is the weather bomb so dangerous?

Difficult to predict and easy to confuse with other weather hazards, Explosive Cyclogenesis or, as often called, “The weather bomb”, constitutes one of the most interesting meteorological phenomena. Its basic scientific principle is a rapid fall in the central pressure of a depression. Due to the collision between warm Sub-tropical air and cold Artic air a massive release of energy that is converted into motion (wind) and temperature contrast is created which drives the jet stream. The bigger the contrast the faster the jet stream, creating a vacuum which causes a pressure drop and pressure gradient to increase, therefore wind to gain speed and storms to form.

In order to meet the criteria of an Explosive Cyclogenesis the pressure drop must be at least 24 mb in 24 hours. Scientific Meteorological researches show the upper trend of weather bombs in the Northern Hemisphere over the last years. Most of them agree that there is another dangerous situation added to the increasing trend which is associated with a rapid intercontinental air pollution transport.
