Flyer magazine in the UK is launching on March 26th it's yearly supplement "Learn to fly 2015-2016". We are happy that Flying Academy is the only European school featured in the Learn to Fly Abroad section!
Radim Olbrecht - Head of Training Flying Academy: "I'm proud that our continuos efforts to increase the quality of training while keeping the costs to a minimum are recognised internationally. It's a success for us that we are the only flight school in Europe being featured in the magazine and we will take this as a challenge to become better and better every day.
Signs of our progress are shown to us daily and that's why students from 46 countries have decided to do or continue their training in Flying Academy at costs which are 60% cheaper than in the Western European countries, but at the same level of preparation and obtaining the same Pilot License. For this reason, we are confident to invite anybody that considers to become an Airline Pilot to come and visit us and we will reimburse the cost of the visit when the training will be started".
How efficiency and excellent preparation are helping to nail the Ryanair Cadet Program Interview. Personal insight from Flying Academy’s student Diego
Students from Flying Academy, International Flight Training Center are getting accepted to Airline companies from all over the world. One of the latest trend for low-hour pilots are various cadet programs, that are giving young pilots a unique opportunity to start their career straight after the flight training. Diego, our recently graduated trainee, who finished his 0-ATPL(A) training just in September 2015 and was accepted to Ryanair Cadet Program shares his experience of how to succeed at the interview:
My name is Diego, I am 21 years old and I completed my 0-ATPL(A) training in Flying Academy, Brno, Czech Republic in September 2015. I applied to Ryanair a week after I finished my MCC and got called for the interview for December 2nd.
The interview begins from the moment you walk into the building, not from when the assessment starts. Make sure you are well dressed and act appropriately throughout the day, even after the actual interview is over! The assessment begins with Briefing at 09:15 AM, which is given by one of the interviewers and during which you are paired up with your Simulator partner. The interviewer tells you what will happen throughout the assessment day and what will be expected of you. Pay attention to everything that is being said in the briefing! The assessor gave us some tips for the assessment and told us to be calm and not to stress too much about it.

Let's talk about what most companies are looking for, especially from 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 your abilities and determine if you can successfully conduct further training with them.
As our assessor told us during the initial briefing: "If for some reason you are not successful after today, please take this as a benefit because if I have doubts about you today you will struggle during the Type Rating."
So, let’s start from the beginning. How’s the assessment day structured?
